- My 06 Speedy, is my 3rd EFI Triumph Inline Triple, and I have Never had any oil leak issues from the oil cooler.
- Steering lock issue is all new to me.
- Gearbox. These 955 derived gearboxes in the 1050s, are somewhat agricultural compared to Japanese items, especially the likes of Suzukis, but still better than a BMW boxer.
The symptoms you describe, I would attacking by:
1 - Adjusting the clutch cable at the lever and at the engine end. The struggling to find Neutral is typical of clutch cable not properly adjusted and the clutch not disengaging thoroughly.
2 - Drain the oil, and give her a fresh gut full of 10W40... This tends to takeout some of the clunkyness. When she gets clunky again, its time to change the oil again.
In terms of oil, from early on I found that Fully Synthetic 10W40 Motul was fairly clunky. At the suggestion of my mechanic we tried Semi Synthetic Motul, which smoothed things up.
Oils I've used that satisfied include:
Semi Synthetic Motul
Yamalube - Semi Synthetic
Silkolene Semi Synthetic
Penrite Semi Synthetic
- Silkolene and Penrite were from Supercheap Auto, and the Yamalube from the local dealership for much less than Motul, Repsol, Motorex or other pricey brands.
Hopefully that solves some of those issues and make it more liveable.
