    How come I can get a full set of metal fuel connectors for my 2001 sprint st from the United states but here in the heart of the British Empire I can only get one piece of that set from a company called parkers but I can't actually get it because it won't let me order on the internet and I can't speak to anyone on the phone...

    I think its total sh#te how things are done here in England....

    I may save some pennies up and order this from the states...
    At least the yanks live up to delivery times and so far they have been brilliant with everything
    I think all our American cousins should vote for Donald Trump again as at least he provides parts for my bike..just lower the import tax...

    I probably should have put this on rant of the day but I don't know how to transfer it over...

    Sourcing parts is sketchy no matter where you are. I live in the most populous part of the US. It is said that there are more motorcycles per person here than anywhere in the U.S.. But when I go to Triumph to buy a part, sometimes I have to wait for weeks and still pay a ransom to free it from thier greedy little hands ! I am currently in need of a throttle cable. I wound up sourcing it out of Germany and paying the shipping. That was cheaper then going to those thieves at the Triumph dealer. ...J.D.

    I told @Duckadiledundee about Parkers as that’s where I’d got mine from.
    I’m fortunate that they’re not far from me so I collected, and that I only needed the female fittings. Last time I looked, I could only find valved male elbows with a hose barb outlet but I didn’t look too deeply on the website.

    ooh.. nice fittings you got there.

    I ain't got them yet as I have to convince the wife they are necessary and not just cosmetic..I just wish you could buy a set like that here in England...

    I like your name for your bike...:)
