    Got home around 8pm after a LONG day - 400 miles, 12 hrs, etc but she's in the garage.
    Need to bring the shifter up a notch or 2 - no problem. But looks like bringing the brake pedal up might be more involved. Any & all advice or instructions appreciated.

    Congratulations! It's just like mine, lol. Except different bags. I to thought the brake pedal was a little low but I've kinda gotten used to it. Shift lever was spot on for me. Your gonna love the bike, so tourqey!

    Got the Brake pedal up late yesterday. Next project was to set the clock, which I did. BUT it seems to be set on the 24 hour scale rather than 12 hrs. I've found nothing in the owner's manual regarding that. Any pointers regarding that?

    Yeah I'm not a fan of the 24 hour clock either.

    Beautiful! Enjoy that bike, @Traveler. :) I like those saddlebags...they suit the style of the bike to my eye.

    I recently got a 2014 Bonnie but I don’t know how to get it up on a stand to clean the chain. I understand needs to be cleaned every several hundreds of miles. How do you clean yours? Do you have a center stand? I can’t find a Center Stand that fits it!

    I ordered one on my bike about 10 days ago. Salesman said he checked on it and there was a 6 week backorder on it.
    Someone had an ad for one on a vendor site but I can't recall which one. If I run across it I'll get it to you.

    Well that wqs easy enough!

    Oh thank you so much! I just need to make sure it will fit my bonneville it’s not a 100 or 120. It’s just a regular Bonnie! Thanks so much for your quick response!

    I ordered the center stand from the triumph dealer and it was installed on the bike when I picked it up. I will never ever own a bike again without a centerstand. Was it expensive? Yup, but money well spent imo.

    I had one on mine too (and will have one on the replacement), but never actually used it in the short time I had the bike. How easy is it to hoist the T120 up onto the stand, as a matter of interest?

    It's actually pretty easy. I step on the stand and I just grab my panier rack and lift up on it at the same time as I'm stepping on the stand and it pops right up. To me the stand is essential for chain maintenence, oil changes, or just general maintenance and cleaning.

    Yes, ditto. I only asked because some stands are a lot more manageable than others.
