Dismantled rear end to clean and grease suspension bearings.
Got it in bits and a good clean.
Initial look and bearings seem to be in good nick.

Bit tricky getting at the bolt holding the link to the frame but with swing arm off was a bit easier.
AND a friggin imperial screw head.

All clean so greasy fingers (smearing shabby clothes) tomorrow. Proably be some snot running down my nose if its as cold again tomorrow.

Addressing woeful Triumph build quality Issues:

Take a look at this Hose bracket. Never noticed it in 10 months of ownership.
How did Bill Smiths' miss it?

I used a soft headed mallet to twat it into place.

Feeling like a dead duck
Spitting out pieces of his broken luck, oh, Aqualung

Brilliant!

Apologies, I had to look that up.
Although well old enough to know of Jethro Tull I am not that familiar with their work.
Thanks to you and Spotify I have now listened to 6:35 mins of Aqualung.

Thank you for edjumacating me.

Today's tasks were valve clearance check, oil/filter change and balancing the throttles.


Tinkering is what happens when you try something you dont quite know how to do, guided by whim, imagination, and curiosity.
