    so now i am looking for a solution as this is really a problem.....i am sure i am not the only one with this problem..


    yes yes! the street is a good naked track machine. esp. with the engine from the daytona 675. but i find it stunning, that the low arrows scrap, they are actually meant for track purposes?

    if ure having issues, the speed triple is likely to scrap also with its low mount exhaust. there are quite a no. of uk speed triple sites u can check with.

    or u can get seng kwang at amk techpoint to move the mounting position by connect a different angled header or extension.

    good luck!
    let us know how it goes.

    Well, the biggest gathering Ive seen so far was the launch of the speed triple & rocket III at the east coast.

    there were about prob. 20-25 triumphs at the most?

    more than half of them were cruisers.

    only 2-3 speed triples and 1 sprint ST and a couple of daytona 675s.

    assuming, all these members turn up and a couple more, a track day event for 10 triumphs is not going to be too successful.

    other than yourself in this forum, i believe only yourself and mr sloggi going to the track. do u know anyone else interested?

    well this will leave us a lot of space at least.... no, seriously, but we do not need a special event only for the triumph, maybe they can mix with other clients from the same agent, this will do it maybe?? The MAH track day...or something like that.....:-) just a fun day, have a nice ride, some fun on the track, talking, etc....well even PG will be good no?
    think it will be difficult to turn ont track with a rocket, not sure this will be a great part of pleasure...I have seen 1 time a groupe of Harley davidson turning on track...well the least I can say that there was a lot of firework going on with all the iron touching the ground in each turn...

    whahahahaah fireworks i can imagine, like a national day parade on the track.

    i dont think its enjoyable trying to lean and turn a 330kg rocket 3 at high speed!!

    Mah track day sounds feasible. maybe book PG for 4hrs session?
    sepang is too far, towing so many bikes there is another consideration.

    maybe u can suggest this on the mah triumph website?

    will take my tiger for a session if theres one?

    Wah .. so tempting .. it would be nice if there is someone there to teach track newbies like myself, the proper way to track. Is there a proper way to track anyway? Hehe ..

    I prefer not too many pple. Less pple, less crowded track, less initimidating for newbies like myself.

    well i think riding with a clean mind, respect for the others, knowing your limits and trying to have fun out of it without riding around like some kind of punchingball, that is a good start for proper track riding...gaining confidence and don t let others push you around...at least that is my way thinking and I am having fun as a beginner..

    Hi fellows,

    Finally changed my coolant totally (changed to a product called Engine Ice. Costed me almost $50 for that blue liquid) at the agent last weekend. At first the coolant temperature shot up to 9 bars after riding the bike for a few minutes! Went back and let them have a check and found out that there were air bubbles trapped inside. Temperature returned to normal after removing the air bubbles. Phew! Feels more assured now but still monitoring the coolant level every other day just in case.

    BTW just to let you all know that me and my bike were featured in August issue of MotorCulture Asia magazine. I look vey flabby in that jacket though. I was wearing the MCA jacket over my Dainese jacket Somehow my number plate wasn't block-out as even though I've requested to

    The review wasn't contributed by me. They test rode another Street Triple somewhere. I'm just the model (poser if you like). And no, I am not paid for doing this.

    Hey CMYRS,

    I'm going to order SuperBike online to read about the article you mentioned. Is it August 2008 issue or July 2008 issue? Just want to make sure I don't order the wrong issue.

    Is this the one? http://www.zinio.com/gncissue?is=278351953&ns=gbr



    Thanks.

    Checked my coolant level today (one week after topping up with Engine Ice). Guess what? The coolant is gone again! Argh!

    Any plans for a Triumph get together? I am riding a 12 year old Tiger (Blackie's ex-bike). Hope to meet other Triumph kakis.

    My bike sees very little action these days since I mostly drive to work.
    During weekends, I use it to frighten car drivers when I roar off from traffic lights

    I am going to order some small parts (gaskets, etc) from Jack Lilley site in UK. If anyone wants to share in mailing cost, let me know.

    Hi guys,

    Vara owner sneeking in the back door Just to introduce myself in case anyone wonders what the He11 I'm doing here

    I am really a closet Triumph Tiger man but ended up with a Vara (backache & bent crashbars not optional extras) and I'd like to keep my nose in the Triumph scene.

    Hope you don't mind me sniffing around, promise I'll be good
    Vara is gone but back strain lingers on

    I am guessing you are riding the new Tiger? Damn cool machine. I know of only one other steamer Tiger in Singapore. It is at my mech getting fixed.

    It is good to see more interest in Triumph bikes. Great machines with awesome aural experience too boot.

    Inline-3, where the fun begins at 5000 rpm and madness starts at 6000rpm

    its an interesting ride so far.

    bike didnt really settle in till about 8000km, suspension starts to firm up and my mileage improved quite a bit.

    used to get about 310km for 19.5L now its 340 on 19.5L
    no change in riding styles or routes.

    are u a potential triumph owner?

    My Tiger, being the big trailie model, has a soft front. Dives a lot under heavy breaking but I am used to that.
    With dynojet kit, after-market exhaust and tuned for sound instead of economy, I get 11km/lit

    I am hoping my next bike is the Street Triple R. Now, if only I can convince my wife I really need a graphite black naked bike with 2 bug eyes!

    I just noticed the other day that Triumph are about to release a limited edition Tiger with matt graphite colour scheme (no other changes or enhancements)

    11km/L & 13km/L???
    Prob spend more time at the gas station than on the road

    the front forks have adjustable compression n rebound and even to the max settings, I find them diving abit even when coming to a slow halt.
    Ohlins time!

    I suggest you let the wifey know abt the tiger, get her to sit on the comfortable seat and all. Later on, tell her its abit pricey and you will settle on the small cc (cheaper road tax & machine price) triple R instead as a budget option.

    Let me know if the above works and I'll practice it to get a 2nd bike

    Well, let me help you make up your mind


    When triumph next organises an event, I would invite you guys to come along. its so rare to catch up one the road and its quite a sight to see a dozen.

    The problem is my wife loves my Tiger. She refuses to let me buy any other bike because everything else looks small and timid compared to the beast.
    She enjoys being a pillion on this bike much more than any of the other bikes I had.
    So I am keeping the Triumph for good unless Blackie21 wants it back someday!

    I am working on the Street Triple idea in a slow insidious manner. Firstly, I am using pics of the Triple as my PC wallpaper to let her get used to the idea
    I am also encouraging her to get her class2, so that the Triple can be her bike! Wishful thinking on my part.....

    Lokks like you don't need much help there, way ahead of me already

    When triumph next organises an event, I would invite you guys to come along.
    Very kind, hope we can meet before then though, my friend who has a Speedmaster (only one in Sg as far as I know) said the next event was a long way off.

    Talking

    Wow looks like the thread is alive again!

    Anyway just an update. My coolant problem has been solved. Things back to normal for now, except for the irritating ticking noise on the right side of the engine. The noise comes from the chain cam tensioner.

    Seldom ride my bike now .. mileage only at 3000km since July ..

    I forgot that was last weekend, interested to hear how it went.

    I am sure Dirk will turn up if he is in town, he mentioned the event the other day, I may speak to him again this weekend.

    I'm sure there will be more than just two

    Hi friend, if that guy is also carrying a super big orange backpack, then yes, it was me. Were you riding or driving? Didn't notice anyone looking at me.

    Yep, the rider had a tall orange backpack, it wasn't very big lah. I was on a pahntom, wearing a neon yellow mesh jacket. Don't think you'd have noticed me but street triples aren't exactly common in s'pore, especially ones with arrows, so I noticed you.

    The backpack is bloody heavy with all the things inside. Riding with it is a torture. Luckily I don't have to do that everyday.

    Didn't notice you. Most of the time I am in my own world while riding, seldom like to look around too much unless you are right infront of me, don't want pple to misunderstand that I am staring at them.
