Here's my little collection of links for my new bike. :-D I just wanted one central place to go for my own reference.
Clicking on a link "should" open a new link. This started out small, but as it grew, I thought some other peeps might
get some level of usefulness. Who knows? Maybe not! Hope you can find something useful here.
It's not very pretty, but pretty functional.
One day I hope to make it look nice.

Here's a pic for your (and my) enjoyment of what my bike looks like:

2000 Lucifer Orange Triumph Sprint RS

There are some really great Triumph user sites and forums out there. Thanks to all the participants for all the knowledge
I've picked up! I've tried to give credit due where applicable. Please let me know if I missed something.
It certainly wasn't my intent.

Although lots of information exists, the one thing I thought was missing was what I am going to attempt to put together
at a new site to be announced soon. That being, some pretty detailed How-To guides with both text and pics. Initially,
I was going to concentrate on my model, but realized I could give back more to the community by hosting the site for all
Triumphs. To be announced soon!

Motorcycle Insurance

Dairyland is who I ended up with. Although I went to a local dealer, they can be found here online
GMAC My Old Ins. Co. They wanted to contract with Progressive because they didn't handle the Triumph directly.

Interesting Tidbits & Sites:

I just liked that Randy Lervold has his upgrades all listed on one page here. - *New 5/06*
He also has a cool page that talks about all the bikes he has had over the years. Nice!

Read this: Just make sure the bike you settle on has Triumph's latest engine-management mapping downloaded into its black box. (Under the #1 used bike, the Speed Triple)

Installing GenMar Risers

Installation Instrux from GenMar - *New 5/06*

Adjusting Headlights:
The manual recommends removing the cockpit, I removed the nose fairing to adjust mine. There are four adjustment screws on the back side of the headlight assembly (I think they are hex head bolts). As viewed from the rider's point of view, turn the right upper screw clockwise to move the beam to the right, turn the left upper screw anti-clockwise to move the beam to the left. There are two vertical adjustment screws near the middle of the assembly. Turn the vertical adjusters clockwise to lower the beam and of course anti-clockwise to raise the beam. Found here:

Alternative Oil Filters: (from the mailing list)
The 955 oil filter is Triumph p/n T1210200
Hi Flo HF-191 oil filter
Purolator Pure One PL14610. It's a wee bit longer than the stock one for more media and easier to get a wrench on.
Purolator Pure One PL14612 is the same filter in the stock size.
A list that cross references many motorcycle oil filters

Tips on installing LSL Sliders:
Q. Did you have to undo both sides simultaneously like the instructions say?
A. Under no circumstances take out both bolts at the same time. That could allow the engine to rotate, not good. I did not have the huge Torqx bit so I used an allen to hold the engine mounting bolt and removed the nut from the back side with a long extension and ratchet. Take a look at my mods page (there is a link on my previous post in this thread) and make sure you have the mounting pad on the right side in the proper orientation (I have a close up picture), such that the ear fits between the engine and the frame. The pad could get cocked in there and press on the engine if one isn't careful. Only took about 20 minutes but get yourself a helper for sure.
Thanks go to unummyu & TriumphRat.Net. Instructions grabbed from here

Moving the Seat Lock:
A free mod that the people with bags will love. I moved my seat lock from the left side to the rear, above the license plate. No more removing the left bag to get the seat off. I can't take credit for the idea, but it is free and worth the 30 minutes you will invest in time.
1. Remove old lock and mount
2. Make drilling template from old mount
3. Drill a 3/8" - 5/16" hole in the undertail tray in the rear left corner, drill from the inside and angle towards the left rear.
4. Disconnect the release cable at the seat lock, pull cable out, lubricate cable.
5. Drill the mounting holes according to the template, just above the license plate (I had to use a Dremel tool to enlarge the lock hole).
6. Feed the cable thru the hole in the undertail tray, reconnect to the lock mechanism.
7. Make a loop in the cable to take up the slack and bolt the lock on the fender.

Cool Tip:
Q. I have a slight oil leak coming from the gear shift shaft where it enters the crank case. Has anyone had this problem before, and is the repair a do-it-yourself quickie? Maybe just a bad seal is best guess?

A. The shift shaft seal. Not to uncommon. Easy one I'm told. (haven't had to do mine......yet) Just pick the old one out being careful not to nick the case. Lube up a new one and carefully tap it into position. Done, no case splitting is necessary.

Corbin Seat: - So far so good!
Custom Corbin Seat that is about a half inch taller. Perfect condition. Used only about 750 miles. All black. Leather. The Corbin is a firm seat. The Corbin is wider and firmer. The shape of the Corbin does not push me forward but the sweet spot is close to the tank not back against passenger ridge.
Currently trying out a Zero Gravity Sport-Touring Screen - Better than stock - could be higher!
EBC brake pads front and rear - Great!
