Trident Special ~ Alive

Progressing slowly but well in now ~ Wiring today ~

LH Jap switch gear ~ Suzuki and Kawasaki clutch lever ~ Triumph throttle and RH switch gear

Oil gauge mount is going to be changed... looks more like a Dakar bike GPS ~ :o :lol:

And lose the LH hand grip & match RH hand grip

Cheers Stuart SS

Yes ~ I really like the switch gears.. much more functional and practical.. even the trafficator switch has a cancell mode ~

But I really ~ REALLY like the brake and clutch lever " dial- in " ~ a fantastic effect ~ and can be even adjusted 'on the go' ~

Not happy with the handle bars ~ look great but too much cafe race effect ~ too hard on my back ~ maybe ~ The oil gauge mount is "gone" ~ waiting for a replacement more compact pod to appear ~

Another effect I really like is the end finishers on the oil line ends on the oil cooler and the oil tank end! They really do tidy up the hoses instead of bare hose and hose clamp ~

Also note the SS heat shield under the oil cooler ~ Snibor did some extensive tests with his triples and has proven that in Ozzie , the term Oil Cooler does not apply ~ in fact here in Summer they become an Oil heater ~ so this little mod will remedy this issue !!

( PS~ GBC .. there had to be some one eh ~ :20 ~ I wanted to go with an Aprilla Red on the tank ~ but Ms M wants the same colour as "Attilio's T150" whose bike was the original inspiration for the Special ~ and one of our TDU group ~ His is the Black and Gold original tank ~ )

No problems ~ Steve.. A done deal ~ You wuld love the Gillies ~

Even the round Robin .. Malanda ~ South Johnstone ~ Innisfail .. (the leisurely run ) then up the coast to Gordonvale and then up the Gillies to Malanda ~ a nice 3 hour ride ~

I did a video several years ago and anumber of peopel here have seen it ~ Digless.. Bill and GCB ~ the camera belies the incline ~ and that first divided road section .. the left hander is a trick corner ~ Note severe lack of Armco fencing ~

Sea level to 600 metres in 22 km and 92 corners !

But 3/4 in.. on this first vid ~ what a fooking idiot ~ that was a real shyte move on his part ~

A fantasic ride.. btu then I am sure/ know ~ you have equals down south ~
