Since the bike does not come standard with a centerstand, I find it hard to believe they'd specify the chain slack using one.

Triumphs and bicycles. I like the above system best ... simple, elegant, nothing sticking up to the sky.

3 out of 3 = Side Stand it is - Thanks guys. was confused by owners manual. QUOTE: "Place motorcycle on level surface and hold it in an UPRIGHT position with no weight on it". Led me to erroniously think centerstand. Unlike 'Girlie' manual that sez specifically SIDESTAND...but then shows picture of it clearly being on centerstand. I think Truimph & I may have a language barrier.

I'd be happy to speak the KINGs English. When I try to speak like the Queen...people look at me funny. I think Churchill said "2 english speaking countries separated by a common language" ...or something like that.

I would do something like that but I want to keep my top box. Maybe when I get my side casses I will change it up a little.

Dunno if anyone has done this but I managed to drop my stock screen all the way down to instrument cluster.





All I did was leave both front mounts stock. remove left and right plastic brackets and let it drop. Just for temporary trial I cut up and old aluminum license plate and bend and drill to match stock holes and threads. Use stock bolts and nuts. Took me all of 10 minutes. I'll let you know how it works when I get back.

I'm not a locksmith, but the Triumph tumblers are different.

I tried mine down a bit but it threw too much wind at me. You're right to try though as sometimes less is more as I found on my Girlie but the Girlie has a fairly big fairing as well.

yeah, they did change the sound chip in the 955i in 2001. My 2000 Sprint RS sounded like a tractor at idle, which oddly enough I loved, and then as it wound up, oohhhhhhh the sonic joy.
