1.Seein as the owners manual spells out Exactly what to use, what kind of oil should i use?

2.I just got back from the dealership where we discussed the tors, so, what is tors and what kind of exhaust should i get?

3.My bike is under warranty for two years, should i bother getting the first service done or just wing it and then bitch when they tell me to get screwed.

4.What kind of mirrors should i use?

Just thought i would ask, Be nice now. :devil:

1.) Use whatever oil you want. In the USA, the warranty cannot be voided over oil used UNLESS the dealer and/or manufacturer supplies it to you. (search the forums for more info on oil, and the internet for The Moss-Magnuson Act).

2.) TORS = Triumph Off-Road Silencers and tune. These are slip-on silencers that look like stock, but flow better and are slightly louder. They add about 5 rwhp on the dyno. (do a search for more info)

3.) For an simple oil change (semi-synthetic to synthetic), the first service is expensive. But it does let you have the dealer correct all the things they missed when they set up the bike - and charged you the set up fee. (do a search for more break in info)

4.) Whatever mirrors you like, and allow you to see behind you. (do a search for more info on mirrors)

Well Ichin,  Since your manual is actually a photocopy of an old Kawasaki Mach III manual with notes taken in crayon, I wouldn't worry to much about accuracy.  For Oil the Speed triple really likes Corn Oil, but in a pinch Peanut oil will work.  

TORS stands for "Triumph Owner Retard Syndrome" and your dealer is making fun of you.  I would leave a paper bag full of dog shit on their front stoop, after lighting it on fire.  That'll teach them to call you a Retard.

As for exhaust, the fastest bikes just remove it completely for best flow.  You see, any kind of thing attached to the exhaust port is just a restriction the idiotic manufacture puts on there to frustrate our search for maximum horsepower.   Tear all that garbage off and your bike will make at least 200 HP.  And attract more chicks.  Wheely better too.  Loud pipes save lives.

Since Triumph customer service sucks, you're better off wiping your ass with your warranty than bothering to have your dealership do the first service.   Most deanships are famous for using old bacon fat for oil changes and over-tightening the oil plug with a 14 inch adjustable wrench.  Screw them, I say.

And then there are mirrors.  If you go to the occasional motorcycle swap meet you can probably find one with a Harley Davidson emblem etched in the glass to hang in your living room, right over the oil spot your bike left last winter when you stored it next to the pool table.  I know that spot already has the "Ride To Live, Live To Ride" flag you bought down at the Salvation Army, but trust me:  The mirror has more class  glass.

You must remember, I take nothing seriously.

Except masturbation.

And hot women, when I can get them cheaply enough.

Itchy,
It WAS obvious.
I was being a smart ass - I am a morning person, and had already come back from a sunrise ride through some twisties. ;D

I made breakfast for my nephew and I, and handed my wife a coffee (I don't dare talk to her before she has a cup - not a morning person either) and I read your first post. I decided to answer back - read my post again with a sarcastic tone. ;D

This thread and http://www.thespeedtriple.com/Forums/index.php?topic=1643.0 illustrate a the point that anyone should spend a little time reading (which is as close as one can get to listening on forums) before asking a question. They will probably learn more than they set out to by listening to what others have to say. That seems to be the main issue that most posters on this site understand. Thanks for that, by the way, it has kept more new topics coming up and new info for everyone to learn,
