Hey all. I have been away from bikes for a few years and have recently gotten back into the fray. It started with a Dyna Glide but I recently picked up cosmetically challenged ‘05 Triple. She seems mechanically sound with the exception of a ceased eccentric and the shitty brake calipers but I’m sure I’ll get it sorted. The Dyna is a cool bike bike but it doesn’t fill the void my old 955i filled.
Welcome and great choice, the 05 S3 is by far the best model they ever made, just an opinion. My front brakes failed on me twice, searched for alternatives via this site. Opted for the R6 calipers, not looked back since. Brakes are great now. If your in the US have a look on good old ebay or something. Maybe something like these would be up your street.
