Default Ahks' "Not a Speed Triple"

Since I'm tearing the bike down and last time I did this I didn't have a bike for over a year I figure I'll start a thread where I can get 's for not getting off my ass to DW

Heres what I brought home 2 weeks ago


Rode the pants off of it ...
Heres it's pants


Googled around for some inspiration...



Started buying parts... Thanks Purpony


Found a "matching" wheel on another forum...


Rode it one last time before putting it in the basement...


And it's home till it's done.


Wonder if this was part of the inspiration for the new headlight design on the new S3's


Heres some photoshopping of ideas...


And after a bit of work, here's how it sites

Hahah plastidip is cool because you can just peel it off.

And I'm really digging that red one you have as an inspiration.

Playing with jacking up the tail a few inches... Could extend the bottom subframe rail by about an inch without disrupting electrics or plumbing...


Not sure I wanna deal with modifying the plastics for this but it's a really aggressive look. Would fuck with my ergo's significantly and I'm tip toeing it around parking lots already. I have carpal tunnel as well, and this would add hand/wrist fatigue

with the fatbars you'll find you can get away with a higher/more angled seating position, won't fuck your wrists up so much

You also need to...
Service the rear suspension link
Use a 5/8" front master (98 cbr900 for example)
Use a 1/2" rear master (zxr750 for example)

I am 5'10" with long skinny legs and if you're not significantly longer legged than me then leave the seating position as it is.

Depending the condition of your linkage you might find it cheaper to trade up to a later 1050 arm and linkage than buy the bearings. Nicer look, easy fit and come up cheap on occasion.

I was thinking that too. And if I'm not pleased with riding position I can look at a fatbar with a bit more rise and pull back or risers like what I had on my CBR

I did notice the brakes were pretty shit compared to my CBR would the master swap give me some of that feel back?
Is there a resource that lists masters sizes by make and model so I can hunt for cheap

I'm 5'7"ish with a 29" inseam. I'm pretty well accustomed to one footing it at lights and got over how silly it is to have to push the bike to move it in a parking lot :p So raising the seat height isn't as much of a concern in that department. If necessary I can sell the corbin and build me a seat. Found this orthopedic gel thats used in wheelchair pads for pretty cheap that could be cut and shaped. Cant find it on Amazon now of course...

Besides the fact that they are black, whats the difference? Just poked at worldoftriumph.com and linkage part numbers are the same between my bike and all but the newest generation of s3.

Arms look a touch different tho. Not really interested in that kind of expense and REALLY hoping my bearings can do with just a repack :p

Also since I don't have easy access to a welder...

Extending the rear subfram...
My subby attaches like this


Would it be safe to use some round or square stock to extend it so I can test out the position before commiting? I'm also considering a tail swap for next year and am thinking it may be advantageous to not fuck this one up permanently so it can sell :p
