  1. Ayup could we add steering head bearings too…sizes are 32005JRS top and 32006JRRS bottom 😉

  2. Hi, does anybody know where i can get 3 pod type filters for my mk1 speed triple please.. cheers..

  3. Trevor at Sprint should be able to sort you out 😉



  4. Hi, as you may be aware a common fault in the rev counter stops working. I have found a company in Holland who will repair them for about £80 with a warranty of 12 months. Although they cut open the unit, I had my bezel removed here, sent in to them for repair and then had the bezel and glass replaced on its return to the UK. Took about a week at a cost of around £85 compared to £240 for a new one (Which will just pack up again!). They modify the electronics to make them more reliable. The company is http://www.carmo.nl (Carmo Electronics). They also cut open and repair ignition units.

    Interestingly, no-one seems to have spotted why the rev counters fail in the first place. If you look down the holes that take the dial illumination lamps, one looks like it is next to an IC on the PCB. The standard bulbs get VERY hot and I think they fry this IC. I’ve done an LED conversion, you can get diect replacement lamps for £1.99 a pair on ebay!

  5. Hi Clive

    The the chrome on the bezel of my rev counter is ‘bubbling’ – not sure if its plastic or metal! Anyway – Id appeciate it if you could tell me who replaced the one on yours

    cheers Brian

  6. Hi Brian,

    The bezel is metal, so could be removed a re-chromed. Note my comment on the lamps frying the pcb, worth replacing with LED’s (direct replacement on ebay £1.99 a pair). There are several companies on the internet that would be able to remove the bezel, worth Googling to see if there is one near you, anyone who repaired speedos and rev counters should be able to do it, but make sure they have the correct equipment and don’t just use a screw driver! Mr guy was in Penge London, he was OK, but you may be able to do better, as he marked the bezel putting it back on and didn’t clean the glass properly before replacing. His name is Peter Bond 0208 289 9031.

    Just about to upgrade the side stand mounting using one from a 96 Trophy.

    Let me know how you get on.

    Best regards,

  7. Thanks for the info Clive – I’ll get googling!


  8. Hiya, i did a bit of research and found that brake seal kits for certain Suzuki’s will fit the 4 piston fronts and 2 piston rear Nissin’s. The Suzuki GSF1200 Bandit had the same front 4 piston brake calipers and the Suzuki DRZ400SM had the same 2 piston front caliper as the rear brake on T300’s. I also found a replacement KYB oil seal to fit the rear shock and with a bit of effort, managed to rebuild it. Also, Kawasaki KDX200/250’s had the same steering head bearings so you can find quality aftermarket versions for a whole lot less than KOYO bearings. I’ll post pics of my bike when i have finished rebuilding it!
    Cheers, Pete.

  9. Hello everyone,
    My first comment on this site (which I have read at length already). I would like to know if you are facing the same problem and how did you work your way around. My bike, when on the side stand, is leaning a lot (more that other bike which is obvious when parked with other bike). I thought that the side stand started bending and therefore I change it for the upgraded version recommended here (good tuto on MOT’s website: http://www.mottleybiker.com/page30.htm). So job done, take the bike done, the side stand is chunkier and feel more robust, and when I lean it I get approximately the same angle (actually even a little bit leaner, it looks a tiny bit shorter). You all know that the bike is heavy, I am using it a lot and I would love to be able to save a little bit of my back, any suggestion? (Extender, new stand…).
    Thanks a lot and thank you for this website,

  10. Sound like you may have the wring stand. I fitted a stand from a later Trophy and it is great, slightly longer and much stronger, resulting in a less severe lean angle. Note that you have to fit the complete assembly from the Trophy as the actual stand part is slightly different in that the raised section in the casting that operates the kill switch is on the other side.

    The alternative stand fits with no modification what so ever. Only tricky part is getting the nut on the engine mounting bolt. Solution is to wedge it in the end of a ring spanner with a piece of paper.

  11. Hi…
    Anyone else had experience of fitting a kawasaki alternator as a replacement for the triumph one.. ?
    I did it on my old tiger. Only needed to change the drive with the triumph one. I originally found the suggestion online but can not longer find the link…
    Both are nippon denso and even the wiring plug is the same
