    Hello I live in San Juan Capistrano Ca USA where we are currently dealing with social distancing. BUMMER Anyhow when I was a young man I bought a 1966 T120TT basket case with bolt on hard tail, Z bars, extended forks, etc. I converted back to swingarm suspension,stock length forks,dirt track handlebars,custom seat,trailor rear fender, my own custom style. Rebuilt the engine & enjoyed that bike way more than any of the Japanese bikes I was riding at the time. Then somebody needed the bike more than me & stole it. 35 years later I picked up a 2016 Thruxton R. Bike is in great shape exept for fork seals leaking, so I changed seals & I'm putting forks back on but cant find workshop manual or torque specs. Any ideas on specs would be much appreciated. Also ride a 2005 Harley Road King & various dirt bikes.

    Welcome to a terrific forum, Cal Rider, and a great bunch of folks. I lived in San Diego County for about ten years and am now in the neighboring state of Arizona. I had a 2016 Thruxton R and loved it but traded it for a 2019 Speed Triple. I, like you, also have a Harley (two actually) in the garage. Looking forward to seeing some photos of your bikes!! Hint, hint.....
