1050 S3 Front Brake lever cross reference

I ordered a set of CRG levers for my 1050 S3.
As it turns out the same brake lever fits a bunch of other bikes. I guess several manufacturers must use the same master cylinder.
Attached photos list other manufacturers part no's. So If a 1050 (not sure about other S3's)owner needed a brake lever but couldn't get to, or didn't want to go a Triumph dealer this info might come in handy.

Edited by Dfib to show pics
Thanks Dfib :drink:, couldn't test view last night untill the photos got approved.

Starter and headlight relays are the same part. The Hella relays on my '06 are no longer available by that part number. I found a replacement Hella that works just fine. This is a single-pole double throw, with a diode and resistor for protection of the ECU. Hella part number 4RD 960 388-25.

And a great place to get them - I bought from Susquehanna MotorSports in Fleetwood, PA. I worked with Dave over the phone and he picked out a relay that works fine. And his price was good too - just $8 for the relay.

So it looks like my first post here is gonna be to bring this oldie-but-goodie back to life.

Tons of great info, and I'm very glad I finally found this thread before I started asking done-to-death questions (for instance, the search function has not been terribly helpful in regards to oil change info). But there is one problem I'm having with nearly all of this information, and that is me not knowing what info here applies to the 1050, the 955i, or if all the info is totally interchangeable between the two. I've only had my 955i ('03) for a few months, and as such am not privy to what the differences are, or even if there ARE any differences aside from the cc rating. So some guidance here would be tremendously appreciated.

I have a Tiger 955i as well as a Speed Triple 1050. The 955i and 1050 are very much alike at the motor, but there are many other differences as well. There use to be a 955i thread here somewhere. Try the link below:
Speed Triple 955i 02-04

If you cant find what you're looking for, just ask. Plenty of peeps here either had or currently have the 955i.

The links for the manual no longer work. Does anyone have a new link?
