Never start your engine or let it run for any length of time in a closed area. The exhaust fumes are poisonous and may cause loss of consciousness and death within a short time. Always operate your motorcycle in the open-air or in an area with adequate ventilation.

Foreword - Safety First

Helmet and Clothing Warning
When riding the motorcycle, both rider and passenger must always wear a motorcycle helmet, eye protection, gloves, trousers (close fitting around the knee and ankle) and a brightly coloured jacket. Brightly coloured clothing will considerably increase a rider's (or passenger's) visibility to other operators of road vehicles. Although full protection is not possible, wearing correct protective clothing can reduce the risk of injury when riding.

Parking Warning

Always turn off the engine and remove the ignition key before leaving the motorcycle unattended. By removing the key, the risk of use of the motorcycle by unauthorised or untrained persons is reduced. When parking the motorcycle, always remember the following: Engage first gear to help prevent the motorcycle from rolling off the stand. The engine and exhaust system will be hot after riding. DO NOT park where pedestrians, animals and/or children are likely to touch the motorcycle. Do not park on soft ground or on a steeply inclined surface. Parking under these conditions may cause the motorcycle to fall over. For further details, please refer to the How to Ride the Motorcycle' section of this owner's handbook.
A helmet is one of the most important pieces of riding gear as it offers protection against head injuries. You and your passenger's helmet should be carefully chosen and should fit you or your passenger's head comfortably and securely. A brightly coloured helmet will increase a rider's (or passenger's) visibility to other operators of road vehicles. An open face helmet offers some protection in an accident though a full face helmet will offer more. Always wear a visor or approved goggles to help vision and to protect your eyes.
Parts and Accessories Warning
Owners should be aware that the only approved parts, accessories and conversions for any Triumph motorcycle are those which carry official Triumph approval and are fitted to the motorcycle by an authorised dealer. In particular, it is extremely hazardous to fit or replace parts or accessories whose fitting requires the dismantling of, or addition to, either the electrical or fuel systems and any such modification could cause a safety hazard. The fitting of any non-approved parts, accessories or conversions may adversely affect the handling, stability or other aspect of the motorcycle operation that may result in an accident causing injury or death. Triumph does not accept any liability whatsoever for defects caused by the fitting of non-approved parts, accessories or conversions or the fitting of any approved parts, accessories or conversions by non-approved personnel.

Fuel Requirement/Refuelling Caution
The use of leaded fuel is illegal in some countries, states or territories. Use of leaded fuel will damage the catalytic converter (if fitted).
To help reduce hazards associated with refuelling, always observe the following fuel safety instructions: Petrol (fuel) is highly flammable and can be explosive under certain conditions. When refuelling, turn the ignition switch to the OFF position. Do not smoke.

Fuel Grade

Your Triumph engine is designed to use unleaded fuel and will give optimum performance if the correct grade of fuel is used. Always use unleaded fuel with an octane rating of 95 RON.
Do not use a mobile telephone. Make sure the refuelling area is well ventilated and free from any source of flame or sparks. This includes any appliance with a pilot light. Never fill the tank until the fuel level rises into the filler neck. Heat from sunlight or other sources may cause the fuel to expand and overflow creating a fire hazard. After refuelling always check that the fuel filler cap is correctly closed and locked. Because petrol (fuel) is highly flammable, any fuel leak or spillage, or any failure to observe the safety advice given above will lead to a fire hazard, which could cause damage to property, injury to persons or death.

To Start the Engine

Check that the engine stop switch is in the RUN position. Ensure the transmission is in neutral. Turn the ignition switch on. Note: When the ignition is switched on, the speedometer and tachometer needles will quickly sweep from zero to maximum and then return to zero. The instrument warning lights will illuminate and will then go off (except those which normally remain on until the engine starts see 'Warning Lights' on page 21). It is not necessary to wait for the needles to return to zero before starting the engine.
The engine should normally be stopped by turning the ignition switch to the OFF position. The engine stop switch is for emergency use only. Do not leave the ignition switched on with the engine stopped. Electrical damage may result.
Pull the clutch lever fully into the handlebar. Leaving the throttle fully closed, push the starter button until the engine starts. The motorcycle is equipped with starter lockout switches. The switches prevent the electric starter from operating when the transmission is not in neutral with the side stand down. If the side stand is extended whilst the engine is running, and the transmission is not in neutral then the engine will stop regardless of clutch position.
Never start the engine or run the engine in a confined area. Exhaust fumes are poisonous and can cause loss of consciousness and death within a short period of time. Always operate your motorcycle in the open-air or in an area with adequate ventilation.

Moving Off

Pull in the clutch lever and select first gear. Open the throttle a little and let out the clutch lever slowly. As the clutch starts to engage, open the throttle a little more, allowing enough engine speed to avoid stalling.
Do not operate the starter continuously for more than 5 seconds as the starter motor will overheat and the battery will become discharged. Wait 15 seconds between each operation of the starter to allow for cooling and recovery of battery power. Do not let the engine idle for long periods as this may lead to overheating which will cause damage to the engine.
The low oil pressure warning light should go out shortly after the engine starts. If the low oil pressure warning light stays on after starting the engine, stop the engine immediately and investigate the cause. Running the engine with low oil pressure will cause severe engine damage.

Changing Gears Warning

Take care to avoid opening the throttle too far or too fast in any of the lower gears as this can lead to the front wheel lifting from the ground (pulling a 'wheelie') and to the rear tyre breaking traction (wheel spin). Always open the throttle cautiously, particularly if you are unfamiliar with the motorcycle, as a 'wheelie' or loss of traction will cause loss of motorcycle control and an accident. Note: 1. Gear change pedal (Rocket III) The gear change mechanism is the 'positive stop' type. This means that, for each movement of the gear change pedal/lever, you can only select each gear, one after the other, in ascending or descending order.

Oil tank Oil tank cap Dipstick Maximum mark Minimum mark
Ensure no foreign matter or contamination enters the oil tank during an oil change or top-up. Contamination entering the oil tank may lead to engine damage. Stop engine. Remove the filler cap/dipstick from the oil tank, wipe the dipstick clean and refit the filler cap, pushing it fully home. Note: The actual level is indicated when the motorcycle is upright, (not on the side stand) and when the filler cap/dipstick has been pushed fully home.
Remove the filler cap/dipstick. The maximum oil level is indicated by a mark on the filler cap/dipstick. When the oil level is correct, the indicated oil level must be between the maximum and minimum lines on the dipstick. If the oil level is too low, add oil a little at a time until the correct level is reached. Once the correct level is reached, fit the filler cap/dipstick. engine oil and filter, follow the instructions below/over.
Prolonged or repeated contact with engine oil can lead to skin dryness, irritation and dermatitis. In addition, used engine oil contains harmful contamination that can lead to skin cancer. Always wear suitable protective clothing and avoid skin contact with used oil. Allow the engine to idle briefly, then stop the engine and secure the motorcycle in an upright position. Place an oil drain pan beneath the engine. Remove the oil tank drain plug from the bottom of the sump and allow the oil tank to drain.
Oil and Oil Filter Change
Note: Removal of the oil tank drain plug allows the oil to drain from the oil tank, not the sump. In order to drain the one or two litres of oil left in the sump, the front and rear sump plugs must also be removed.

Incorporating a new washer, refit the oil tank drain plug, tightening it to 25 Nm. Position the oil drain pan towards the front of the engine, remove the front sump drain plug and allow the oil to drain. This will drain the oil remaining in the front part of the sump. Incorporating a new washer, refit the front sump plug, tightening it to 25 Nm. Position the oil drain pan towards the rear of the engine, remove the rear sump plug and allow the remaining oil to drain. This will
The engine oil and filter must be replaced in accordance with scheduled maintenance requirements.

This is because the majority of the oil is contained in the oil tank on the left side of the engine, not in the sump. To change the
drain any oil remaining in the rear part of the sump. Incorporating a new washer, refit the rear sump plug. Tighten to 25 Nm.

If the engine oil pressure is too low, the low oil pressure warning light will illuminate. If this light stays on when the engine is running, stop the engine immediately and investigate the cause. Running the engine with low oil pressure will cause engine damage. Ensure that the low oil pressure warning light extinguishes shortly after starting. Turn off the ignition, check the oil level using the method previously described, and top up to between the minimum and maximum level lines on the dipstick. Note: When the engine is first started after an oil and filter change, at least 1 to 1.5 litres of oil will be required to top-up the oil tank to the correct level.
The oil may be hot to the touch. Avoid contact with the hot oil by wearing suitable protective clothing, gloves, eye protection, etc. Contact with hot oil may cause the skin to be scalded or burned. Remove the oil filter cover by pulling it gently towards the front of the motorcycle. Position the oil drain pan beneath the oil filter. Unscrew and remove the oil filter using Triumph service tool T3880313. Dispose of the old filter in an environmentally friendly way. Apply a thin smear of clean engine oil to the sealing ring of the new oil filter. Fit the oil filter and tighten to 10 Nm. Fill the oil tank to the maximum mark with a 10W/40 or 15W/50 semi or fully synthetic motorcycle engine oil that meets specification API SH (or higher) AND JASO MA. Start the engine and allow it to idle for a minimum of 30 seconds.
Raising the engine speed above idle, before the oil reaches all parts of the engine can cause engine damage or seizure. Only raise engine speed after running the engine for 30 seconds to allow the oil to circulate fully.
Disposal of Used Engine Oil and Oil Filters
To protect the environment, do not pour oil on the ground, down sewers or drains, or into watercourses. Do not place used oil filters in with general waste. If in doubt, contact your local authority.

Cooling System

Oil Specification and Grade
Triumph high performance fuel injected engines are designed to use 10W/40 or 15W/50 semi or fully synthetic motorcycle engine oil that meets specification API SH (or higher) AND JASO MA. Do not add any chemical additives to the engine oil. The engine oil also lubricates the clutch and any additives could cause the clutch to slip. Do not use mineral, vegetable, non-detergent oil, castor based oils or any oil not conforming to the required specification. The use of these oils may cause instant, severe engine damage.
To ensure efficient engine cooling, check the coolant level each day before riding the motorcycle, and top up the coolant if the level is low.

Refit the intake cover as follows: Align the cover to the centre studs and ease it into place. Fit and tighten the two screws to 9 Nm.

Coolant Change

Have the coolant changed by an authorised Triumph dealer in accordance with scheduled maintenance requirements.
1. Intake cover 2. Intake cover screws Remove the intake cover as follows: Release the two screws from its front and rear edges and then slide it downwards to release it from two support studs in its centre. Remove the cap from the expansion tank, and add coolant mixture through the filler opening until the level reaches the MAX mark. Refit the cap.

Radiator and Hoses

Check the radiator hoses for cracks or deterioration, and hose clips for tightness in accordance with scheduled maintenance requirements. Have your authorised Triumph dealer replace any defective items.
Using high-pressure water sprays, such as from a car wash facility or household pressure washer, can damage the radiator fins, cause leaks and impair the radiator's efficiency. Do not obstruct or deflect airflow through the radiator by installing unauthorised accessories, either in front of the radiator or behind the cooling fan. Interference with the radiator airflow can cause overheating, potentially resulting in engine damage.
1. Radiator grille 2. Radiator fins Check the radiator grille and fins for obstructions by insects, leaves or mud. Clean off any obstructions with a stream of low-pressure water.
The fan operates automatically when the engine is running. Always keep hands and clothing away from the fan as contact with the rotating fan can cause injury.

Throttle Control

Inspection
Use of the motorcycle with incorrectly adjusted, incorrectly routed, sticking or damaged throttle cables will interfere with the throttle function resulting in loss of motorcycle control and an accident. To avoid incorrect adjustment, incorrect routing, or continued use of a sticking or damaged throttle, always have your throttle checked and adjusted by your authorised Triumph dealer. 1. Throttle grip 2. 2 - 3 mm Check that the throttle opens smoothly, without undue force and that it closes without sticking. Have your authorised Triumph dealer check the throttle system if a problem is detected or any doubt exists. Check that there is 2 - 3 mm of throttle grip free play when lightly turning the throttle grip back and forth. If there is an incorrect amount of free play, Triumph recommends that you have adjustments made by your authorised Triumph dealer. However, in an emergency, throttle adjustment may be made as follows:
The throttle grip controls the throttle valves in the throttle bodies. If the throttle cables are incorrectly adjusted, either too tight or too loose, the throttle may be difficult to control and performance will be adversely affected. Check the throttle grip free play in accordance with scheduled maintenance requirements and make adjustments as necessary. Always be alert for changes in the 'feel' of the throttle and have the throttle system checked by an authorised Triumph dealer if any changes are detected. Changes can be due to wear in the mechanism, which could lead to a sticking throttle. An incorrectly adjusted, sticking or stuck throttle will lead to loss of motorcycle control and an accident.

1. Clutch lever 2. 2 - 3 mm The motorcycle is cable-operated clutch.
If the clutch lever has excessive free play, the clutch may not disengage fully. This will cause difficulty in changing gear and selecting neutral. This may cause the engine to stall and make the motorcycle difficult to control. Conversely, if the clutch lever has insufficient free play the clutch may not engage fully, causing the clutch to slip, which will reduce performance and cause premature clutch wear. Clutch lever free play must be checked in accordance with scheduled maintenance requirements.

Brake Wear Inspection

Brake pads must always be replaced as a wheel set. At the front, where two calipers are fitted on the same wheel, replace all the brake pads in both calipers. Replacing individual pads will reduce braking efficiency and may cause an accident. After replacement brake pads have been fitted, ride with extreme caution until the new pads have 'broken in'.
Brake Pad Wear Compensation
Disc and brake pad wear is automatically compensated for and has no effect on the brake lever or pedal action. There are no parts that require adjustment on the front and rear brakes.
1. Brake pads 2. Minimum thickness line Brake pads must be inspected in accordance with scheduled maintenance requirements and replaced if worn to, or beyond the minimum service thickness. If the lining thickness of any pad (front or rear brakes) is less than 1.5 mm (0.06 in), that is, if the pad has worn down to the bottom of the grooves, replace all the pads on the wheel.
If the brake lever or pedal feels soft when it is applied, or if the lever/pedal travel becomes excessive, there may be air in the brake pipes and hoses or the brakes may be defective. It is dangerous to operate the motorcycle under such conditions and your authorised Triumph dealer must rectify the fault before riding. Riding with defective brakes may lead to loss of motorcycle control and an accident.

Disc Brake Fluid

Inspect the level of brake fluid in both reservoirs and change the brake fluid in accordance with scheduled maintenance requirements. Use only DOT 4 fluid as recommended in the Specification section. The brake fluid must also be changed if it becomes, or is suspected of having become contaminated with moisture or any other contaminants.

Final Drive Unit

Other than checking and changing the final drive oil level, the unit contains no user serviceable parts. If a fault occurs with the final drive unit, your Triumph dealer must replace the complete assembly. Check the final drive unit for oil leaks in accordance with the scheduled maintenance chart.
Under no circumstances should the final drive unit be disassembled. Failure to observe the above warning could lead to a malfunction of the final drive unit causing lock-up of the rear wheel leading to loss of motorcycle control and an accident.
Final Drive Oil Level Adjustment
1. Final drive unit 2. Oil level/filler plug To check the oil level in the final drive unit, remove the filler/level plug. Fill with Mobilube 1 SHC 75W-90 fully synthetic hypoid oil (or equivalent) until the level of oil inside the unit is level with the bottom of the filler. Refit the plug and tighten to 60 Nm.

Tyres Warning

Incorrect tyre inflation will cause abnormal tread wear and instability problems that may lead to loss of control and an accident. Under-inflation may result in the tyre slipping on, or coming off the rim. Over-inflation will cause instability and accelerated tread wear. Both conditions are dangerous as they may cause loss of control leading to an accident.

Tyre Wear

As the tyre tread wears down, the tyre becomes more susceptible to punctures and failure. It is estimated that 90% of all tyre problems occur during the last 10% of tread life (90% worn). It is therefore not recommended to use tyres until they are worn to their minimum.
1. Wheel marking 2. Tyre marking This motorcycle is equipped with tubeless tyres, valves and wheel rims. Use only tyres marked 'TUBELESS' and tubeless valves on rims marked 'SUITABLE FOR TUBELESS TYRES'.
Minimum Recommended Tread Depth
In accordance with the periodic maintenance chart, measure the depth of the tread with a depth gauge, and replace any tyre that has worn to, or beyond the minimum allowable tread depth specified in the table below: Under 130 km/h (80 mph) Over 130 km/h (80 mph) 2 mm (0.08 in)

Tyre Inflation Pressures

Correct inflation pressure will provide maximum stability, rider comfort and tyre life. Always check tyre pressures before riding when the tyres are cold. Check tyre pressures daily and adjust if necessary. See the Specification section for details of the correct inflation pressures.

Rear 3 mm (0.12 in) Front 2 mm (0.08 in)
Operation with excessively worn tyres is hazardous and will adversely affect traction, stability and handling which may lead to loss of control and an accident. When tubeless tyres become punctured, leakage is often very slow. Always inspect tyres very closely for punctures. Check the tyres for cuts, embedded nails or other sharp objects. Operation with punctured or damaged tyres will adversely affect motorcycle stability and handling which may lead to loss of control or an accident. Check the rims for dents or deformation. Operation with damaged or defective wheels or tyres is dangerous and loss of motorcycle control or an accident could result. Always consult your authorised Triumph dealer for tyre replacement, or for a safety inspection of the tyres.
Only operate this Triumph motorcycle at high speed in closed-course on-road competition or on closed-course racetracks. High-speed operation should only then be attempted by riders who have been instructed in the techniques necessary for high-speed riding and are familiar with the motorcycles characteristics in all conditions. High-speed operation in any other circumstances is dangerous and will lead to loss of motorcycle control and an accident.

Tyre Replacement

All Triumph motorcycles are carefully and extensively tested in a range of riding conditions to ensure that the most effective tyre combinations are approved for use on each model. It is essential that approved tyres, fitted in approved combinations, are used when purchasing replacement tyres. The use of non-approved tyres, or approved tyres in non-approved combinations, may lead to motorcycle instability and an accident. See the specification section for details of approved tyre combinations. Always have tyres fitted and balanced by your authorised Triumph dealer who has the necessary training and skills to ensure safe, effective fitment.
If a tyre sustains a puncture, the tyre must be replaced. Failure to replace a punctured tyre, or operation with a repaired tyre can lead to instability, loss of control or an accident.
When replacement tyres are required, consult your authorised Triumph dealer who will arrange for the tyres to be selected, in a correct combination, from the approved list and fitted according to the tyre manufacturer's instructions. When tyres are replaced, allow time for the tyres to seat to the rim (approximately 24 hours). During this seating period, ride cautiously as an incorrectly seated tyre could cause loss of control or an accident. Initially, the new tyres will not produce the same handling characteristics as the worn tyres and the rider must allow adequate riding distance (approximately 100 miles) to become accustomed to the new handling characteristics. 24 hours after fitting, the tyre pressures must be checked and adjusted, and the tyres examined for correct seating. Rectification must be carried out as necessary. The same checks and adjustments must also be carried out when 100 miles have been travelled after fitting. Use of a motorcycle with incorrectly seated tyres, incorrectly adjusted tyre pressures, or when not accustomed to its handling characteristics may lead to loss of control and an accident.

Fuse Identification

A blown fuse is indicated when all of the systems protected by that fuse become inoperative. When checking for a blown fuse, use the table below to establish which fuse has blown.

Headlights Warning

Adjust road speed to suit the visibility and weather conditions in which the motorcycle is being operated. Ensure that the beams are adjusted to illuminate the road surface sufficiently far ahead without dazzling oncoming traffic. An incorrectly adjusted headlight may impair visibility causing an accident.
Never attempt to adjust a headlamp beam when the motorcycle is in motion. Any attempt to adjust a headlamp beam when the motorcycle is in motion may result in loss of control and an accident. Note: The vertical beams of the left and right hand headlights can only be adjusted together. Independent adjustment is not possible.
Headlight Vertical Adjustment Headlight Horizontal Adjustment
1. Vertical beam adjuster Switch the headlight dipped beam on. Remove the adjuster cover. Slacken the clamp bolt sufficient to allow restricted movement of the headlights. Adjust the position of the headlights to give the required beam setting. Tighten the clamp bolt to 15 Nm. Re-check the headlight beam settings. Switch the headlights off when both beam settings are satisfactorily set.
1. Horizontal beam adjusters The horizontal beams of both headlights can be adjusted individually. The same procedure is used to adjust either headlight. Switch the headlight dipped beam on. Slacken the headlight bowl fixing. Adjust the horizontal position of the headlight to give the required beam setting. Tighten the fixing to 20 Nm. Repeat for the second headlight. Re-check the headlight beam settings. Switch the headlight off when both beams are satisfactorily set.
Headlight Bulb Replacement
It is necessary to remove the headlight from the headlight bowl to gain access to the bulbs. Remove the headlight from its bowl while supporting it to prevent the cables from being over extended. Disconnect the multi-pin electrical connector from the headlight bulb and remove the rubber cover. Detach the wire retainer from its clip (do not remove the screw) then remove the bulb from the light unit. To remove the position light bulb: Without pulling on the wires, ease the bulb holder from its socket. The bulb is removed from its holder by pulling gently upwards. Installation for both bulbs is the reverse of the removal procedure. Tighten the headlight clamp to 2 Nm.

Never wax or lubricate the brake discs. Loss of braking power and an accident could result. Clean the disc with a proprietary brand of oil-free brake disc cleaner.
Cleaning of the Exhaust System
All parts of the exhaust system of your motorcycle must be cleaned regularly to avoid a deterioration of its appearance. These instructions can be applied to chrome, brushed stainless steel and carbon fibre components alike. Note: The exhaust system must be cool before washing to prevent water spotting.

Drying

Dry the exhaust system as far as possible with a soft cloth. Do not run the engine to dry the system or spotting will occur.

Protecting

When the exhaust system is dry, rub 'Motorex 645 Clean and Protect' into the surface.
The use of products containing silicone will cause discolouration of the chrome and must not be used. Similarly, the use of abrasive cleaners will damage the system and must not be used. It is recommended that regular protection be applied to the system as this will both protect and enhance the system's appearance.

Washing

Prepare a mixture of cold water and mild automotive cleaner. Do not use a highly alkaline soap as commonly found at commercial car washes because it leaves a residue. Wash the exhaust system with a soft cloth. Do not use an abrasive scouring pad or steel wool. They will damage the finish. Rinse the exhaust system thoroughly. Ensure no soap or water enters the exhausts.

Storage STORAGE

Preparation for Storage
Clean and dry the entire vehicle thoroughly. Fill the fuel tank with the correct grade of unleaded fuel and add a fuel stabiliser (if available), following the fuel stabiliser manufacturers instructions. unpainted metal surfaces to prevent rusting. Prevent oil from getting on rubber parts, brake discs or in the brake calipers. Make sure the cooling system is filled with a 50% mixture of anti-freeze and distilled water solution (see page 55). Remove the battery, and store it where it will not be exposed to direct sunlight, moisture, or freezing temperatures. During storage it should be given a slow charge (one ampere or less) about once every two weeks (see page 73). Store the motorcycle in a cool, dry area, away from sunlight, and with a minimum daily temperature variation. Put a suitable porous cover over the motorcycle to keep dust and dirt from collecting on it.

Gasoline is extremely flammable and can be explosive under certain conditions. If parking inside a garage or other structure, be sure it is well ventilated and the motorcycle is not close to any source of flame or sparks. This includes any appliance with a pilot light. Failure to follow the above advice may cause a fire resulting in damage to property or personal injury.
The engine and exhaust system will be hot after riding. DO NOT park where pedestrians and children are likely to touch the motorcycle. Touching any part of the engine or exhaust system when hot may cause unprotected skin to become burnt.
Considerations for High-Speed Operation Warning
This Triumph motorcycle should be operated within the legal speed limits for the particular road travelled. Operating a motorcycle at high speeds can be potentially dangerous since the time available to react to given traffic situations is greatly reduced as road speed increases. Always reduce speed in consideration of weather and traffic conditions.
The handling characteristics of a motorcycle at high speed may vary from those you are familiar with at legal road speeds. Do not attempt high-speed operation unless you have received sufficient training and have the required skills as a serious accident may result from incorrect operation.
The items listed are extremely important and must never be neglected. A problem, which may not be noticed at normal operating speeds, may be greatly exaggerated at high speeds.
Only operate this Triumph motorcycle at high speed in closed-course on-road competition or on closed-course racetracks. High-speed operation should only then be attempted by riders who have been instructed in the techniques necessary for high-speed riding and are familiar with the motorcycle's characteristics in all conditions. High-speed operation in any other circumstances is dangerous and will lead to loss of motorcycle control and an accident.

General

Ensure the motorcycle has been maintained according to the scheduled maintenance chart.

Steering

Check that the handlebar turns smoothly without excessive free play or tight spots. Ensure that the control cables do not restrict the steering in any way.

Luggage

Make certain that any luggage containers are closed, locked and securely fitted to the motorcycle.

Brakes

Check that the front and rear brakes are functioning properly.
High-speed operation is hard on tires, and tires that are in good condition are crucial to riding safely. Examine their overall condition, inflate to the correct pressure (when the tires are cold), and check the wheel balance. Securely fit the valve caps after checking tire pressures. Observe the information given in the maintenance and specification sections on tire checking and tire safety.

Coolant

Check that the coolant level is at the upper level line in the expansion tank. (Always check the level with the engine cold.)

Electrical Equipment

Make certain that the headlight, brake/tail light, turn signals, horn etc., all work properly.

Miscellaneous

Visually check that all fasteners are tight.
Have sufficient fuel for the increased fuel consumption that will result from high-speed operation.
In many countries, the exhaust system for this model is fitted with a catalytic converter to help reduce exhaust emission levels. The catalytic converter can be permanently damaged if the motorcycle is allowed to run out of fuel or if the fuel level is allowed to get very low. Always ensure you have adequate fuel for your journey.

Engine Oil

Make certain that the engine oil level is correct. Ensure that the correct grade and type of oil is used when topping-off.

Final Drive Oil

Make certain that the final drive oil level is correct. Ensure that the correct grade and type of oil is used when topping-off.
Accessories and Loading ACCESSORIES AND LOADING
The addition of accessories and carrying additional weight can affect the motorcycle's handling characteristics causing changes in stability and necessitating a reduction in speed. The following information has been prepared as a guide to the potential hazards of adding accessories to a motorcycle and carrying passengers and additional loads.
Incorrect loading may result in an unsafe riding condition leading to an accident. Always ensure any loads carried are evenly distributed on both sides of the motorcycle. Ensure that the load is correctly secured such that it will not move around while the motorcycle is in motion. Always check the load security regularly (though not while the motorcycle is in motion) and ensure that the load does not extend beyond the rear of the motorcycle. Never exceed the maximum vehicle loading weight of 518 lbs (235 kg). This maximum loading weight is made up from the combined weight of the rider, passenger, any accessories fitted and any load carried.

Never ride an accessory equipped motorcycle, or a motorcycle carrying a payload of any kind, at speeds above 80 mph (130 km/h). In either/both of these conditions, speeds in excess of 80 mph (130 km/h) should not be attempted even where the legal speed limit permits this. The presence of accessories and/or payload will cause changes in the stability and handling of the motorcycle. Failure to allow for changes in motorcycle stability may lead to loss of control or an accident. Remember that the 80 mph (130 km/h) absolute limit will be reduced by the fitting of non-approved accessories, incorrect loading, worn tires, overall motorcycle condition and poor road or weather conditions.
Do not install accessories or carry luggage that impairs the control of the motorcycle. Make sure that you have not adversely affected any lighting component, road clearance, banking capability (i.e. lean angle), control operation, wheel travel, front fork movement, visibility in any direction, or any other aspect of the motorcycle's operation.
This motorcycle must not be operated above the legal road speed limit except in authorized closed-course conditions.

Accessories and Loading

Do not carry animals on your motorcycle. An animal could make sudden and unpredictable movements that could lead to loss of motorcycle control and an accident.
The handling and braking capabilities of a motorcycle will be affected by the presence of a passenger. The rider must make allowances for these changes when operating the motorcycle with a passenger and should not attempt such operation unless trained to do so and without becoming familiar and comfortable with the changes in motorcycle operating characteristics that this brings about. Motorcycle operation without making allowances for the presence of a passenger could lead to loss of motorcycle control and an accident.
Your passenger should be instructed that he or she can cause loss of motorcycle control by making sudden movements or by adopting an incorrect seated position. The rider should instruct the passenger as follows: It is important that the passenger sits still while the motorcycle is in motion and does not interfere with the operation of the motorcycle. To keep his or her feet on the passenger footrests and to firmly hold onto the seat strap or the rider's waist or hips. Advise the passenger to lean with the rider when travelling around corners and not to lean unless the rider does so.
Never attempt to store any items between the frame and the fuel tank. This can restrict the steering and will cause loss of control leading to an accident. Weight attached to the handlebar or front fork will increase the mass of the steering assembly and can result in loss of steering control leading to an accident.
If the passenger seat is used to carry small objects, they must not exceed 11 lbs (5 kg) in weight, must not impair control of the motorcycle, must be securely attached and must not extend beyond the rear or sides of the motorcycle. Carrying of objects in excess of 11 lbs (5 kg) in weight, that are insecure, impair control or extend beyond the rear or sides of the motorcycle may lead to loss of motorcycle control and an accident. Even if small objects are correctly loaded onto the rear seat, the maximum speed of the motorcycle must be reduced to 80 mph (130 km/h).

Do not carry a passenger unless he or she is tall enough to reach the footrests provided. A passenger who is not tall enough to reach the footrests will be unable to sit securely on the motorcycle and may cause instability leading to loss of control and an accident.

Oil Level Inspection

In order for the engine, transmission, and clutch to function correctly, maintain the engine oil at the correct level, and change the oil and oil filter in accordance with scheduled maintenance requirements.
Motorcycle operation with insufficient, deteriorated, or contaminated engine oil will cause accelerated engine wear and may result in engine or transmission seizure. Seizure of the engine or transmission may lead to sudden loss of control and an accident.
Oil tank Oil tank cap Dipstick Maximum mark Minimum mark
Ensure no foreign matter or contamination enters the oil tank during an oil change or top-off. Contamination entering the oil tank may lead to engine damage. Stop engine. Remove the filler cap/dipstick from the oil tank, wipe the dipstick clean and install the filler cap and fully tighten. Note: The actual level is indicated when the motorcycle is upright, (not on the side stand) and when the filler cap/dipstick has been fully tightened.
Remove the filler cap/dipstick. The maximum oil level is indicated by a mark on the filler cap/dipstick. When the oil level is correct, the indicated oil level must be between the maximum and minimum lines on the dipstick. If the oil level is too low, add oil a little at a time until the correct level is reached. Once the correct level is reached, install the filler cap/dipstick. engine oil and filter, follow the instructions below/over.
Prolonged or repeated contact with engine oil can lead to skin dryness, irritation and dermatitis. In addition, used engine oil contains harmful contamination that can lead to skin cancer. Always wear suitable protective clothing and avoid skin contact with used oil. Allow the engine to idle briefly, then stop the engine and secure the motorcycle in an upright position. Place an oil drain pan beneath the engine. Remove the oil tank drain plug from the bottom of the sump and allow the oil tank to drain.
Oil and Oil Filter Change
Note: Removal of the oil tank drain plug allows the oil to drain from the oil tank, not the sump. In order to drain the 0.26 to 0.52 US gal (1 or 2 liters) of oil left in the sump, the front and rear sump plugs must also be removed.
Oil tank drain plug Front sump drain plug Rear sump drain plug Oil filter cover
The engine oil and filter must be replaced in accordance with scheduled maintenance requirements. Because this motorcycle has a dry-sump lubrication system, the oil change procedure differs from those many will be familiar with. This is because the majority of the oil is contained in the oil tank on the left side of the engine, not in the sump. To change the

To ensure efficient engine cooling, check the coolant level each day before riding the motorcycle, and top-off the coolant if the level is low.
A year-round type of anti-freeze is installed in the cooling system when the motorcycle leaves the factory. It is colored green, contains a 50% solution of ethylene glycol, and has a freezing point of -35C (-31F).

Corrosion Inhibitors

To protect the cooling system from corrosion, the use of corrosion inhibitor chemicals in the coolant is essential. If coolant containing a corrosion inhibitor is not used, the cooling system will accumulate rust and scale in the water jacket and radiator. This will block the coolant passages, and considerably reduce the efficiency of the cooling system. The anti-freeze recommended in the Specification section, mixed 50/50 with distilled water will provide the necessary corrosion inhibition.

Coolant Level Inspection

Use coolant mixture containing corrosion inhibitors and anti-freeze suitable for aluminum engines and radiators. Always use the anti-freeze in accordance with the instructions of the manufacturer. Coolant mixture that contains anti-freeze and corrosion inhibitors contains toxic chemicals that are harmful to the human body. Never swallow anti-freeze or any of the motorcycle coolant. Distilled water must be used to dilute coolant to the correct mixture ratio. In an emergency, tap water can be added to the cooling system. However, the coolant must then be changed and returned to the correct mixture ratio using distilled water and new coolant as soon as possible.
Expansion tank MAX mark MIN mark Fluid level
Position the motorcycle on level ground and in an upright position. The coolant level within the expansion tank can be inspected without removing any covers. Check the coolant level in the expansion tank. The coolant level must be between the MAX (upper line) and MIN (lower line) marks. If the coolant is below the minimum level, the coolant level must be adjusted.
Distilled water must be used to dilute coolant to the correct mixture ratio. If hard water is used in the cooling system, it will cause scale accumulation in the engine and radiator and considerably reduces the efficiency of the cooling system. Reduced cooling system efficiency may cause the engine to overheat and suffer severe damage.

Coolant Level Adjustment

Note: If the coolant level is being checked because the coolant has overheated, also check the level in the radiator and top-off if necessary. In an emergency, water alone can be added to the cooling system. However, the coolant must be changed and returned to the correct mixture ratio using distilled water and new coolant as soon as possible.

Do not remove the expansion tank or radiator pressure cap when the engine is hot. When the engine is hot, the coolant inside the expansion tank will be hot and also under pressure. Contact with this hot, pressurized coolant will cause scalds and skin damage. Allow the engine to cool.
Install the intake cover as follows: Align the cover to the center studs and ease it into place. Install and tighten the two screws to 80 lbf in (9 Nm).

Coolant Change

Have the coolant changed by an authorized Triumph dealer in accordance with scheduled maintenance requirements.
1. Intake cover 2. Intake cover screws Remove the intake cover as follows: Release the two screws from its front and rear edges and then slide it downwards to release it from two support studs in its center. Remove the cap from the expansion tank, and add coolant mixture through the filler opening until the level reaches the MAX mark. Install the cap.

Radiator and Hoses

Check the radiator hoses for cracks or deterioration, and hose clips for tightness in accordance with scheduled maintenance requirements. Have your authorized Triumph dealer replace any defective items.
Using high-pressure water sprays, such as from a car wash facility or household pressure washer, can damage the radiator fins, cause leaks and impair the radiator's efficiency. Do not obstruct or deflect airflow through the radiator by installing unauthorized accessories, either in front of the radiator or behind the cooling fan. Interference with the radiator airflow can cause overheating, potentially resulting in engine damage.
1. Radiator grille 2. Radiator fins Check the radiator grille and fins for obstructions by insects, leaves or mud. Clean off any obstructions with a stream of low-pressure water.
The fan operates automatically when the engine is running. Always keep hands and clothing away from the fan as contact with the rotating fan can cause injury.

Throttle Control

Inspection
Use of the motorcycle with incorrectly adjusted, incorrectly routed, sticking or damaged throttle cables will interfere with the throttle function resulting in loss of motorcycle control and an accident. To avoid incorrect adjustment, incorrect routing, or continued use of a sticking or damaged throttle, always have your throttle checked and adjusted by your authorized Triumph dealer. 1. Throttle grip 2. 0.8 - 0.12 in (2 - 3 mm) Check that the throttle opens smoothly, without undue force and that it closes without sticking. Have your authorized Triumph dealer check the throttle system if a problem is detected or any doubt exists. Check that there is 0.8 - 0.12 in (2 - 3 mm) of throttle grip free play when lightly turning the throttle grip back and forth. If there is an incorrect amount of free play, Triumph recommends that you have adjustments made by your authorized Triumph dealer. However, in an emergency, throttle adjustment may be made as follows:

Inspect the level of brake fluid in both reservoirs and change the brake fluid in accordance with scheduled maintenance requirements. Use only DOT 4 fluid as recommended in the Specification section. The brake fluid must also be changed if it becomes, or is suspected of having become contaminated with moisture or any other contaminants.
Brake Fluid Level Inspection and Adjustment
Brake fluid is hygroscopic which means it will absorb moisture from the air. Any absorbed moisture will greatly reduce the boiling point of the brake fluid causing a reduction in braking efficiency. Because of this, always replace brake fluid in accordance with scheduled maintenance requirements. Always use new brake fluid from a sealed container and never use fluid from an unsealed container or from one which has been previously opened. Do not mix different brands or grades of brake fluid. Check for fluid leakage around brake fittings, seals and joints and also check the brake hoses for splits, deterioration and damage. Always rectify any faults before riding. Failure to observe and act upon any of these items may cause a dangerous riding condition leading to loss of control and an accident. 1. Front brake fluid reservoir, upper level line 2. Lower level line 3. Rear brake fluid reservoir, lower level line 4. Upper level line The brake fluid level in the reservoirs must be kept between the upper and lower level lines (reservoir held horizontal). Remove the screws securing the front brake reservoir cover, then remove the cover. Fill the reservoir to the upper level line using new DOT 4 fluid from a sealed container. Install the reservoir cover ensuring that the diaphragm seal is correctly installed. Tighten the screws to 18 lbf in (2 Nm). Remove the screws securing the right hand heel guard to the footrest bar then lift the guard out of the way. Remove the screws securing the rear brake fluid reservoir cover, then remove the cover. Fill the reservoir to the upper level line using new DOT 4 fluid from a sealed container.
Install the reservoir cover ensuring that the diaphragm seal is correctly installed. Tighten the screws to 18 lbf in (2 Nm). Install the heel guard and tighten the screws to 80 lbf in (9 Nm).
Windshield Cleaning (if fitted)
Clean the windshield with a solution of mild soap or detergent and lukewarm water. After cleaning, rinse well and then dry with a soft, lint free cloth.
If there has been an appreciable drop in the level of the fluid in either fluid reservoir, consult your authorized Triumph dealer for advice before riding. Riding with depleted brake fluid levels, or with a brake fluid leak is dangerous and will cause reduced brake performance potentially leading to loss of motorcycle control and an accident.
Products such as window cleaning fluids, insect remover, rain repellent, scouring compounds, gasoline or strong solvents such as alcohol, acetone, carbon tetrachloride, etc. will damage the windshield. Never allow these products to contact the windshield. If the transparency of the windshield is reduced by scratches or oxidation which cannot be removed, the windshield must be replaced.
