Re: From a workshop in rural Norfolk...

I like the Type 4 pedals. Are they pretty straight forward installation? I was thinking about them as the standard supplied gas pedal had to much lateral slop for my liking. I have a LHD Triking so I should have a little more room to install them.

Re: Front tyres

I second the Heidenau. They work well but then again its the only tire I have tried. 3000 miles and they are still going strong. Wet grip seems ok but I try to not drive in the rain. Hurts more than you would think.

Re: Build tread (kind of)

Hello Berlind, I have a 2002 California USA spec motor in my Triking with a 15M ECU. I drove it all last summer with the stock ECU map and it drove pretty good but there were a few lean back fires every now and then. Knowing it should get a remap I finally broke down and purchased the cables require...

Re: Thinking about buying a 1100 cc engine.

You might also want the coil brackets, the shift linkage for the transmission, the spacers for the rear fork (we call it a swinger in the US) and make sure you get the double u-joint for drive shaft. I also used the exhaust clamps from the stock bike. If you are using a rear wheel from the bike you ...

Re: Thinking about buying a 1100 cc engine.

I am not sure of the prices of things in Europe compared to the US, but you will also need the ignition coils, fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, wiring harness for the ecu, rear wheel, and a few other items I can’t think of at the moment. If you can find a complete running bike you might be better...

Re: Alternator/Stator

Bill, Take a look at this website. They sell an upgraded charging system for Guzzi. https://www.euromotoelectrics.com/category-s/1844.htm Guzzi electronics are strange. When I built my Triking I noticed that the wiring diagram I found for the model and year of my bike didn't match the actual wiring ...

Re: Rear Tyre Size

I don’t remember off the top of my head but I think it was on the higher side or recommended pressure. Probably mid to high 30s psi. The smaller diameter wheel should help with starts from a dead stop. The reason I go with higher pressures is because of the soft side wall. Haven’t had any grip issue...

Re: Rear Tyre Size

Eric I have Continental ContiProContact tires in a 155/60 R 15 that I bought at Discount Tire in Minnesota. They had to order it in and I got it in about a week. I think a 165 would fit but didn't think I needed it. I used the swingarm off a 2002 California that had a 140 tire in the rear. So far I ...

Re: quick disconnect steering wheel

Thanks for the info. I placed an order with Alan. Hopefully it doesn't get held up in US customs. We still have plenty of snow, about 50 cm, so I won't be driving it any time soon unless I can get it out on the local lake where some friends race their motorcycles on the ice.

quick disconnect steering wheel

I recently purchased a steering wheel quick disconnect hub from Amazon here in the US. I am very disappointed with the free play in the wheel. Of course I didn't discover this until after I cut welded and mounted the unit. What kind of play are you guys finding on the quick disconnect unit that Trik...
