Where to bulk buy service parts?


Guest

Recommended Posts

Bikes running a bit lumpy, I've got an intermittent fault with headlight not coming on unless I restart the bike and sometimes my right indicator doesn't work. Not to mention the tyres aren't the best brand.


I would like to do a bulk buy and get the bike totally sorted for my first summer, everything from new tyres to battery, oils etc. Only thing I don't need is a new chain, sprocket and bulbs as I've just bought all these (bulbs yet to be fitted).


Any advice?


Thanks,

Liam. :cheers:

Wemoto are pretty good. Good stock, good prices, fast delivery.

Will check their site out and prove them up against whatever other replied I may get, thanks Joe [emoji4]

A few questions:

 

  • 1) Are these "high performance" "high torque" "light weight" batteries worth the extra?

    2) Would you recommend changing discs at the same time as pads?

    3) Which pads are better for 'general road use': "Standard (GG Type)" vs "Sintered (HH Type)"

    4) Does a Triumph TT600 need iridium plugs or not? (I didn't get a manual with the bike)

 

Sorry for all the questions :P :popcorn: :stupid:

1. Yes .....motobatt is a good one to go for

2. No unless your discs are below the wear limit which I doubt they will be or they are warped

3. Sintered HH all the way

4. Not really but every little helps

Just a word of warning mate......as Bonniebird said in another thread, watch the fuel fittings on the underside of the tank.....The originals are plastic and are prone to failing when you take them apart......resulting in dumping your fuel all over the engine. Carefully disconnect the fuel line fittings, but be prepared to whack them back on quickly if a lot of fuel starts p*ssing everywhere..... :wink:

I will be buying all the parts myself but will be taking it to a local garage to have it all fitted/sorted whilst I go to work so don't worry I won't break anything [emoji39]

If the fuel connectors haven't already been upgraded to metal then this is a mod well worth doing

Any suggestions/recommendations on where to buy them? I'll get them today with the rest of my order when I get back from this ride-out.

Not all garages let you do that as they miss out on a slice of profits from the parts. Best check first

I can't remember where I got them from but this is the connector http://www.tom-parker.co.uk/products_subgroups.php?products_categories=6&level2=170&products_groups=1127&products_subgroups=1721" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

It may well have already been replaced on your bike if you are lucky. Garages may have these anyway they are not a bike specific part

Oh really? Well I guess that makes sense.. I'll call them.

As long as they aren't bike specific I'll ask the garage, thanks [emoji4]


I've screwed up already, bought what is touted as being THEE best bulbs for bikes.. Went to replace mine this morning... Wrong bloody size completely... Anybody want them?

My bad, they're the 2 I bought, the one out of the pack is the one I tried to fit. The one on the bike has 3 prongs and they're much more spaced apart.


The old bulb is back in the bike as it still works.
