    Afternoon all. I am picking up a Nightstorm on Saturday having just sold my Gen 2 Tuono. Hopefully all will be good but any useful hints, tips or links always welcome bearing in mind my fettling skills are on a par with my dancing skills :laughing::laughing:

    Had the Mille from new, and starting to go up in value now. Plus needed the cash from the Tuono to pay for the Nightstorm :cool::cool:

    Here are a couple ☺

    Only thing that has annoyed me a bit is that triumph no longer seem to be making parts for Thunderbirds. The shock absorber C spanner is missing and the dealer say they can't get one because Triumph stopped making them.

    If anyone has one spare I would be happy to buy it off them.

    Have a look at GB tools. https://www.gbmotorcycleproducts.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=210&product_id=4682
    I got one for my Daytona from them, not sure if it’ll fit yours but it’s worth asking. If not, there’s a few sellers on eBay who do them
