Working well so far, but there's a few things I want to fix in a hurry. The front suspension is incredibly harsh on-road and the seat is hilariously uncomfortable compared to my 599. Both appear to be easily fixed.mgdavis wrote:How's the Triumph working out? The Scrambler would be on my short list if I were bike shopping right now.
My new parts came in today and the still-factory-wrapped clutch basket has those same marks. Wrider was spot-on, they are casting marks and not stress fractures.mgdavis wrote:It looks like your clutch basket has some significant fatigue cracks forming.
How many miles are on the 599? It might be getting toward time to replace the whole assembly, before your clutch grenades!
Caveat - I'm no motorcycle mechanic, but I have a feeling for when things look "not right".
It's too bad our motorcycle shop manuals aren't written like aircraft tech data. If they were, you could just find the inspection criteria in the appropriate T.O. and it would tell you the acceptable limits.
