[quote=Hokie;898401]R/R went bad. I replaced it with one from a different bike, the connections worked themselves loose, caused a short, and lit on fire. Small fire got much bigger when the fuel line burst.



Damn dude. That sux... sorry to hear that. The R/R on these bikes seem to reek havoc.. seen many post about issues wit em!

Yup. Triumph could've saved a little face if they released that recall a few years sooner.

Yup, call any dealer and give them your vin, they should be able to tell you. If it hasn't been done, they will order it and you have to bring your bike in to get it done.

Knolly, nice work! Cool little model though!

Triumph should have replaced that bike, IMNSHO, as they knew they had "issues"...

Haha glad everyone liked the idea too. I had the fire parts in a bag labelled "Optional Accessories for Authenticity" or something like that. Glad they did the trick, haha.
