I just picked up my 06' from it's free brake job....did the usual piston & seals plus a new m/c from a sprint. Looks different from the original, anyone know if aftermarket levers will work? Does the sprint have a different clutch lever, if not I could just get a set for the sprint.. right?

anyway the new brakes rule, stoppies better with much better feel and no finger crushin' action. The dealer's service department was supper cool with me. +1 for Triumph for standing behind their stuff.

So, should I be expecting a new MC with the coated pistons? I thought they were only doing the coeated pistons.

J pip, if you are the squeaky wheel you get a 5/8 m/c. I told my dealer the brakes were worse than before after the new pistons (they were, some new kid didn't know how to bleed them). I left my bike, they re-bled the brakes and they felt great. As I was about to ride home I asked, what if I'm still unhappy. The reply was, "the triumph rep said he would replace the m/c as a last resort, but is not happy about it." Don't tell me I can get something upgraded and then ask if I still want it, hell yah I want a bigger m/c. I had to wait a while cause the suppier was out of new m/c, seems there was a run on them for some reason. My dealer was super cool, even though their t-shirts are $70. Didn't cost me a thing, riding home I remembered why I bought this bike, It F-ING rips and now they brakes do too.

Thanks for the tip, my dealer still doesn't have the new pistons in and I know If I try getting the M/C it'll be another few months. I've been waiting two months now just to get the 12k service done, and it's not cuz they're busy.

I sprung for the radial m/c from a 675 and couldn't be happier!
