Reliable Parts House

Thanks everyone on the feedback on what to upgrade, greatly appreciated. Now that I have my wish list of stuff can you recommend places that have good deals? There are tons of places and the prices vary, but I want reliability and good service.

Here is my list:
1. Body work (so I can save my stock plastics)
2. Slipper clutch
3. Rear sets
4. Slip-on (exhuast)

I would put tires and brake pads on the list but they are more wear and tear, so I will need them in the future, I just don't know when.

Thats it for now. I figure the rest is a rider upgrade at TD's and maybe a school.

yeah, i think you'll find that in MOST cases, Motorcycles Unlimited will give you the better deal. They have always come through for me and the Team.

I will agree that Sato has some nice stuff, but don't wreck them without having a back up set...

Bent up mine recently and the replacement parts for %75 of the right side only was well over half the cost of the total kit.


I also vouch for Motorcycles Unlimited and suggest you check them out for some parts and advice where needed.

BTW Patrick can get the bodywork as well. The Attack stuff ROCKS!
I really like the Sato & Attack rearsets. For a slipper, look and see if Hinson makes one, after that STM would get my vote. Save your money and get a full exhaust.

I was running the EBC pads and the Vesrah's stop me a lot better. Heck I'm only using the RJL's right now, I can only imagine the SRJLs....

I just looked at the Vesrah site, and they do not show any "race" pads available for the Triumph.....
