  • Data Importer

    You dont have to, but next step I did was install the engine into the bike Frame

    Install the engine mount bolts and torque them up. Front mounts on the Standard model have one bolt unlike the Special models which have a 3 bolt bracket

    Bolt the middle drive gear to the drive shaft - there are 4 bolts

    Pull the boot over and secure it to the rear of the middle drive housing.

    Install alternator and cover

    Install ignition plate to the LHS

    Screw on the wire for the Neutral switch under the LHS

    Install tach drive to the front of the head. I used a new O-ring and seal

    Next, at the rear, install the rubber inlet manifolds.

    Add clamps and also Vac lines to Cylinders 1 and 3 (Well if you still use the standard fuel petcocks)

    0_1511300452129_164.JPG

    External Oil feed pipe. I used New copper washers either side of the pipe on the union bolts.

    Next, bolt the plastic cover on top of the Starter Motor

    0_1511300497109_166.JPG

    Install Oil cooler lines to the front

    0_1511300514138_167.JPG

    Prepare oil filter housing with O-ring around the outside. New O-ring on the bolt. Push bolt through and slide on the spring and then the washer.

    Install onto the engine with new oil filter

    0_1511300552608_169.JPG

    Install rocker cover with new gasket and silastic. The brackets at the front are for Air scoop which is normally found on the Standard models. It will help with keeping the middle cylinder cooler.

    0_1511300591712_170.JPG

    Air scoop fitted

    0_1511300601650_171.JPG

    Next - Top up with Oil! I’m using a running in oil for this.

    0_1511300625508_172.JPG

    Fill until its just above the top line on the oil level sight window

    0_1511300638851_173.JPG

    Install new exhaust gaskets

    Bolt up the header pipes but dont tighten completely

    0_1511300681278_176.JPG

    Attach the muffler to the headers and align the pipes up properly. Then tighen the nuts to secure the header pipes to the head properly.

    Attach Clutch cable and the rubber cover

    0_1511300722681_178.JPG

    Install carbs and air filter. Also Spark plugs and leads.

    0_1511300733132_179.JPG

    Next to do is put the tank back on and connect up the fuel lines. Also Hook up the battery

    Set petcocks to prime, turn ignition key on, full choke and kick it over!

    And of course it started almost straight away!

    0_1511300765598_running.JPG

    Check your oil level.
    Clutch cable will need to be adjusted properly. Check your timing and make sure your carbs are tuned properly! And then go for a ride and take it easy!!

    Here’s a short vid of my Triple running! (sorry its 14mb but I think its worth the download )
