Pannier Question

Quick question for those using the Triumph Panniers.
Are the cases shipped with lock cores? I didn't get any with my used bike.

Thanks,

Each new bike sold is delivered with lock cores. Cases are shipped without and you just use the cores that came with the bike. Have a look in the zippered case/folio and you might find the cores in there with the spare key.

I know the new bikes come with them however the previous owner didn't have them. I assume I can order a set of cores. I'll just need to use two keys.

Thanks,
You did look under the seat right? Mine are zip tied to a cross member in a little bag. They weren't with the manuals.

My new cores were floating along under the rear seat. I found them when I got home but I am guessing that if you didn't realize you had them and they were loose under the seat they may have the potential to fall out.. I put mine in the tool bag right away!

Trip Report - Alaska

I've got about 1 week of my 3 week trip to Alaska documented (new posts coming in daily, for the most part). I took my Tiger 800XC and my buddy was on a Vstrom. I had a few minor problems with the XC, snapped throttle cable and some battery problems, and the dreaded stalling issue. But for the most part, it handled awesome. It's the first big trip I've ever taken, had an amazing time. Text, pictures, and some video start here for anyone who may be interested:

Nice RR.
It seems you were somewhat not quite prepared for what you took on. Good effort there.

Lake Stevens, eh? Wifey's folks are in Marysville, her best friend in Lake Stevens. Maybe you know Linda Machado - hair stylist. LOL. I have kids in Snohomish and sister in Everett. We left there in '92 for so-Cal. Lots of nice weather here and great riding!

Anyway, I'm trying to put together something similar for next year, was supposed to do it two years ago for the wife's class reunion, but she lost her job and we ran out of $$. So things are better now and the rough plan is to trailer bikes up behind the RV to Marysville and leave her with the dogs at her folks place. Then ride Van-Isle to Port Hardy, BC Ferry to Prince Rupert, Steward, Hyder, then either Cassiar to Watson Lake and loop back to Bella Coola, or east to Prince George and south thru BC Interior. Lots of help and support from adv inmates up there. In the process of recruiting a couple of ride-alongs.

Thanks for posting your blog link.

Measured from the top and front edge of the Triple Tree to the top edge of the windshield.

Even in the lowest position for me (6'2") I have bobble head action.

Thanks
Just put a tape on mine...11-3/4 to 12" to the top of the triple.

Keep in mind the re-drill makes it slant back quite a lot more than stock. But I can't compare to the adjustable brackets, haven't seen them side by side. There isn't much room over the gauge panel on mine now. The slope of the screen is pretty much directly at my eyelevel now.

I really do think the space at the bottom now is what relieves the vacuum behind the screen and that's what upsets the airflow causing buffeting.

Just finished the same trip going up to Watson Lake via Cassiar and then back down to Prince George via Alaska Highway - then over to Jasper and down the Icefields Parkway and back across via 3. Highly recommend that route if you have the time!

Question Front Rotor Tourque Bit Size

Anyone know what size the torque/star bit is for the front rotors? I need to replace the bent one with this nice new one and I don't have the correct size bit.

I don't know her, but small world! Sounds like a great trip you have planned, I'll be watching for your ride report ;)
