The standard uses an undersized master at 14mm instead of 5/8". It gets squishy and needs rebleeding fairly often, the lever travel is too long, and the bite is somewhat too ferocious compared to what you need. This is all compared to the standard "sportsbike feel" which has emerged over the years. Swapping to 5/8" will fix it in one step. ZXR750, 1000SRAD or anything sporty with 6-pots will do it, as will 600 or 750K2 or similar era, also 900RRW-X. If you like a built-in reservoir more than piss-pot type, Hyabusa will be perfect. Best bet is to go to a local wrecker's and rummage through their box of spares, which they will almost certainly have.

The rear brake is oversized, 14mm instead of 1/2". It makes the pedal rock-hard, underpowered and "wooden". So you have to really step on the brake, at which point it works as an on/off switch. Swap to the master from a ZXR750 amongst others, and it will work much much nicer. I used ZXR400L, as this was a direct fir with even the same threads cut, but again going through a box of spares will be probably the best way.

The rear arm just looks nicer to be honest! It is a nicer looking casting, seen here:





The main reason though is that the bearings in the linkages in these arms do dry out, do rust, do seize, and the parts alone are very expensive. Replace with a low miles replacement part from a newer bike and you're on a winner, and can still eBay off your arm and old wheel or put it on here for someone who wants a conversion rear end.

TuneECU works. Bike bitched that I didn't have half the sensors plugged in :shrug:


Rolled the wheel over to see what it looks like... not a great photo in tight quarters


Next step is check valve clearance
Why cant pushrod motors be all the rage

Now whered I put my feeler gauges...

The new wheels are cool but they're 5.5" not 6" like the ugly 3 spoke so you'll be needing a 180 not 190.

TuneECU is awesome and amazingly powerful for free software.

The valves are a special Triumph tool job unless you want to remove the cams, or there's a replica usually available on eBay. They tighten up so ideally set at the loose end of tolerane.

Don't neglect the rear linkage while you're doing a service.

A 190 will fit that wheel just fine. Most reputable brands are designed to work on either a 5.5 or 6 inch

A bunch of folks over on triumphrat.net run a 190 on their 1050s
I'll get whatever I can get cheap as a matching set. I'm way over budget as it is.

The PO (2nd owner) told me he had the local dealer do a valve check, fingers crossed.
And also mentioned that the original owner "put new cams in it" which I interpret as "installed the newer exhaust cam", fingers crossed on that as well. My bike is about 1000 units too early in the production line to have the new cam :p I've got 60323 and the new cam started at about 61xxx or so.

And you are the 3rd person to mention that rear linkage :p The other guys have said it's usually cheaper to buy the linkage off a newer low mileage bike than to buy replacement bearings :/ lame
