I was playing around with different angles, and I think a windscreen that is similar to the stock at the bottom, but tapers to just the top of the gauge cluster would be nice. Thoughts?
Get the speed triple cowl and screen

Brake callipers are fine, the disc rivets started to fret, resulting in lots of clanking and would ultimately have led to brake failure. I.e the floating discs floated too much.

Seems like this is exactly the noise most people have on their 800's.

Wouldn't that be warranty work (if bike is within warranty parameters of course)?

If that is the case, will Triumph accept a manual CCT as an option or replace with same tensioner?

Mine primarily does it only on cold starts. When I take it apart soon I'll know if anything is broken or if its just a case of the little spring thing being out of whack. I guess it's easier and quicker for me to look myself rather than have the dealer look at it. Plus, if they don't find anything they think is wrong then I am stuck with a bill and no better off.

No pic, the old discs have since gone to the tip.

The Disc does float, ever so slightly. Grab yours and give it a tug forwards or backwards. It will move a bit. The rivets allow it to move to as it heats up.

Definitely not the calipers.

If only Triumph would list the commercial bearing sizes like KTM do so that I could get hold of them locally before taking them out.
All the above are available from just about any local Jap bike dealer (the callipers are used on loads of stuff) or bearing supplier. Yes you need to know the size but if you know where to look :- http://www.worldoftriumph.com/triump...lock_03=560041 number 7 has the size in the title.

That is quite normal and absolutely nothing to worry about. When I first got my BMW R100GS it had disc rattle that would get heads turning when riding on cobbled streets. It consistently got through MOT after MOT. After a few years I got fed up with the racket and swapped the disc for an EBC Pro-lite.
I think you're being too fussy.

How many sets of brake pads did you get through before that happened?

Some floating discs have a spring-washer contained within the buttons and some don't. Just because the disc moves or rattles doesn't make it worn out. You guys are starting to sound like a bunch of Harley riders.

I was asking whether the problem with the CCT (noise, spring out of whack) was a warranty issue or not.

So let me ask this question differently:

If you have this noise at start up (and eventually it graduates to being there all the time) and you do nothing about it, is this going to create any damage to the engine?

If so, isn't this something that Triumph should take care under warranty?

It is covered by warranty.

If left uncorrected, it will damage the engine. It can be as minor as casing damage, from the chain whacking the inside, which generates metal fragments. Or, it can be as serious as total tensioner failure, which would allow the cam timing to skip and bend valves and possible other engine damage.

If it did it all the time then yes. But as a previous poster noted, his did it on start up only and when he took his CCT out he found the spring on the CCT that puts tension on when there is no oil pressure (start up) to be out of placed. He popped the spring back into place and problem solved. That''s what I am hoping for as dropping the bike off etc... is a major hassle. If that is not problem with mine I'll consider taking it in. But yes, a bad CCT would be a warranty item.
