Re: Oil cooler hose fitting size?

Hi Colin, 'Scuse the vagueness but it is a while since I plumbed in the oil cooler. I seem to remember that the Guzzi pipe fitting was an unobtainable size, but the adaptors screwed into the cooler were a standard thread so I replaced the adaptors with standard AN adapters and used the self-assembly...

Re: Build tread (kind of)

Hi Berglind, The work / life / Triking balance is always difficult - we just need 30 hour days. With a 2004 bike it is difficult to know weather it had a lambda probe or not - they were introduced around that time, but different countries got them at different times. If you look at the label on the ...

Re: Build tread (kind of)

Hi Berglind, I can help a bit with the fuel injection if you need. There is a modified ECU map which suits the Trikng engine installation and, if needed, can remove the need for a lambda sensor (if your country's approval system allows this). The usual air cleaner approach is to use two K&N filters ...

Re: Swingarm removal

The bottom gearbox bolt is notorious for corroding. You may need to grind an end off or part it in the middle if you can get to that bit. Then replace with new bolt. It does go all the way through with a nut on either end. The pivot bolt is screwed into the CARC casting on the right hand side so be ...

Re: Will I fit in a T3?

Hello Brian,
My type 4 is almost finished and is "on the road" if you want a look and see if you fit. I'm a bit nearer to Donny (about 50 miles) at Matlock. Drop me an email if you want - john at jtdesign dot net.

Re: Triking Propshaft

No issues with this alignment on the type4, there is no extra bearing and the propshaft goes directly from the gearbox to the reversing box. The front u/j has a clamp that tightens onto the gearbox splines.

Re: Fuel pressure regulator

Hi Tony, it sounds as if you have got it all plumbed correctly. The two ports on the regulator for filter and engine will be connected together in the regulator. I really think you will struggle if the breather is plugged - the fuel pressure will rise and the engine will run rich. Will be OK for a t...
