Tnanks, the seat is a stock seat that I cut 4 inches off the back. I then added a 1 inch layer of foam and recovered it in brown leather.

The only problem with Pete is his website takes ages to load! I actually went to Derby to pick them up and he is a real enthusiast for Triumph and a good bloke all round
Cheers Simon
Yea ive used PJ before as well, long ride for me though so had to make do with Royal Mail!!

However it was excellent service.

I think I'll check the website for those blinkers.

Went for a 2 hour ride today, and when I stopped by at a friends place I saw this. I did check the bike before taking it out and did not see this. I don't have much knowledge about these bikes.. Is this normal and what could be the cause? Thanks

I think you guys may be right. The PO told me it was serviced in January then stored till a week ago. I guess its excess that came off during the heat in the stop and go traffic. Still a little too much weep for my liking.. Going to clean it up tomorrow.

Almost 10k in. Sold the BMW. Just love this bike. Slower, less power. A more leisurely mode of travel. I love this bike.

I can't remember the brand of speedo. I'll check my file and see if I can find my paperwork. I got it off of ebay. It used the stock cable. I believe a place called www.mikesxs.net also sells them. I can tell you it was a very tight fit! There is not a lot of extra room in that headlight bucket.
