    Ive owned a couple of Bonnies before a 79 us spec a 2016 T100 and now just bought a 1200 T120 the bike did bot come whth a handbook unfortunately

    1 could someone please tell me the correct tyre pressures
    2 my bike is fitted with Vance and Hined pipes and a X pipe and is super jerky in traffic is there a fix as its quite bad !!
    3 ive seen talk of waking the bike up by changing the sprockets could someone tell me if chasnging to a 39 rear sprocket only would make any decent difference
    4 I read about changing the front springs and spacers etc and the member said they were about £69 from TEC but I can only find them at £139 ??

    Cheers guys
    Rob

    here's the handbook!

    https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwiG27He9av0AhXPQkEAHZUJA9QQFnoECAkQAQ&url=https://images.triumphmotorcycles.co.uk/media-library/files/service%20manuals%20and%20handbooks/modern%20classics/modern%20classics%20owners%20handbook%20%20english.pdf?la=en-gb&usg=AOvVaw3J5RM3q1EMxywrQJUwN0lU

    Front 2.2 bar (32 lbs/in) Rear 2.5 bar (36 lbs/in)

    The T120 was originally designed to run a 39Tooth rear sprocket, but needed the 37 to pass drive-by noise limits. Running a 39 on the rear will make a noticeable difference.

    Ok searching for the 39 tooth sprocket but have only found a 40 and 41
    would these be ok? would they fit without chain issues ? as ive also seen a 16/39 combo being used
    Thanks
    Guys
