You're going to be kindof limited on parts for the Trumper, but they are out there.

I'd get with Patrick to see what he's got at Motorcycles Unlimited. He always gets me some sikass hookups for my parts

Sweet, called him and he found me a slipper clutch (STM) and some plastic (sharkskinz)...... sweeeeeet!

Didn't want to bug him about a ton of seeing as how this round I am only going for the slipper and the plastic. Next round is rear sets, brake pads, and exhaust. Somewhere in the middle I need stands, but those are chump change compared to the other things.

Anyone know a good motorcycle race shop in Austin? I can work on a car upside down and sideways, i restore cars from the frame up (http://web.mac.com/timmetim). However, it appears there are specialty tools required for the moto clutch work and some good old know how I don't posses. I guess I could take it to the dealer but yuk that doesn't sit well with me, another option would be to drop it at Motorcycles Unlimited one weekend after MSR Houston... ideas?

Clutch should be a DIY for someone like you. Don't necessarily *need* specialty tools, I bet the tools you have will suffice. If worse comes to worse, you can always get the tools from Triumph.

The BEST tool a DIY'r can have is an actual factory service manual. Not the owner's manual, and NOT a Clymer manual- an actual from Triumph (or downloaded from your favorite Triumph Owner's site...) FACTORY SERVICE MANUAL.

BTW, Motorcycles Unlimited is only about 2 hours from Austin or less, it takes me about an hour to get there personally, and it's always worth the drive when I go. If you want your stuff done for you, driving to Motorcycles Unlimited is going to be worth your time

Really? I need to google it, I just asumed it was too far... I actually live in Georgetown so 130 gets me to 290 pretty quick. The factory manual wasn't something I had considered... duhhh

Thanks bro, hope to see you guys again soon!
