Triumph Rocket 3 reboot & Kawasaki Z750 regeneration!
A very British feel to the mono motorcycles week this week, with the Triumph Rocket 3 reboot dominating a lot of the time in the workshop.
We began our week still reeling from the success surrounding the Kawasaki Z750. Having investigated issues with the motorcycle some months ago, the Z750 customer returned to ask us to have another look. The one assessment which had never been undertaken in the previous collection of works, was a valve clearance check.
Upon checking, Daniel Morris found that all of the exhaust shims were out of tolerance making the clearances on the Kawasaki Z750 too tight. With the shims replaced & the coils, the Kawasaki is now running smoothly. The customer was overwhelmed with the progress & resolution to the issues which his motorcycle had presented him with & he road her away a very happy customer.
As the weather finally starts to cool & the sunshine is accompanied with cooler air; we are hunkering down with plenty of tea & biscuits to keep us fueled & warmed.
The Triumph Rocket 3 was brought mono motorcycles for some extensive upgrades & modifications.
Thus far :
- The Triumph Rocket 3 has had the wheels removed, most of the chrome removed, the bespoke exhaust system removed, the tank, handlebars & headstock removed.
- The wheels have been powder coated gloss black, previously matt black & the headtstock satin black.
- Many of the chrome items have been re-chromed or professionally chrome polished.
- The stainless exhaust cans have been polished.
- New wing mirrors with LED indicators have been fitted.
- New chrome hand grips have been fitted.
- New LED headlights with built in indicators have been wired in.
- Our customer was not happy with the brightness of the rear light. Therefore, Daniel has created a new wiring loom to accommodate the new rear light which has been fitted.
The shear amount of work it has taken to not only remove all of the elements of the Triumph to allow for the works to be undertaken, to deliver & collect the chrome & wheels, the additional time modifying after market components, the many hours online searching for alternative parts & administrative time; has been a vast undertaking.
Projects such as these, as we have spoken about before, involve a lot of dedication from the motorcycle technician & the customer. In this case Daniel Morris has had many conversations with the customer to talk through options & keep the communication open & transparent.
Our last breakfast club of 2018 is this coming Saturday. Don’t let the cooler temperatures deter you, if you arrive on two wheels or four wheels, it will be great to see.
Tickets are on sale for our Christmas Charity Quiz & with a little over a month to go, we expect to see them selling briskly up to the date.
