    Hi all, recently got back into biking, didn't know what to buy, owned 1200 bandit, blackbird and a gixer750. By chance found this 2000 Rs Sprint, with 18500 miles, a few teething problems to start, it's sat in the previous owners garage a while, need new tyres, very squared off, but all in all, so far very happy .

    Had a few idle problems, ie sitting at 2200 revs, then stalling at lights etc, visited local triumph shop, hoses to stepping motor perished, fit them ASAP hope it cures the problem, apart from that very nice bike.

    A common fault on these, just replace with silicone hose, the originals split at the rubber ends. I hope they didn’t charge you for new Triumph parts, they’re ridiculously expensive o_O
