Hi Phil  :405:

Sticky's have good stuff.   You sport guys will have to drive what's put in them. 

We don't have them in the states.

 I live close to Knutsford in Sth MCR. Not taken any snaps of the bike... Two from the shop I bought it are attached tho..

Ive not added much to it either. Wanted to fix a Scottoiler - but it proved a challenge to find a good place to fix the reservoir...

It had an arrow can / pipe, 3 boxes, heated grips, main stand when I bought it. Ive just added a hugger extension and adjusted levers / pedals / suspension to suit me (thanks for the suspension tips on the forum). I  think it'll be right for me for a while to come.

Dunno how big the scotty reservoir is. I have a PD Oiler with the reservoir cable tied to the frame on the left hand side just inside the front of the rear cowl. Easy access for power and I have fed the filling tube up so that the end is under the seat. To top up I just lift the seat, take off the cap and squirt oil into the top of the tube.

The Scottoiler on my TS is fixed similar position.

I made a custom mount for mine under the tool tray. More vertical yet still accessible from the side. But it is a tight fit.

Very nice photos Phil.

Best advice: Don't take it out of the garage or ride it. That way, it will always be clean and it won't go wrong  :008:

Enjoy  :031:

Great tips guys. Thanks.
Here's a photo of my own answer  :138:
I ride all year and as you can see from the pic , after just a fortnight, the bike is no longer close to being shiny...
I am trusting ACF50, triumph build quality and a nightly hose down to keep out the worst of our British winter road salt.
Its back to fortnightly  chain cleaning  with paraffin and regular use of the lube spray over the next 3-4 months. Brrrrrrr...

Those are both excellent products  :028:

BTW: Your chain appears a little tight. How much slack do you have  :187:
