Fixin' BBBB,got new Exec.

Triumph Trophy mailing list
Remember '98 Trophy w/ bad top end @  38K ? still working on it. But picked up cherry '98 Sprint Exec, platinum, 16K. am questioning which engine I have. It has no evap controls, nor cat cons, like my 96 BBB Trophy had. Don't know if it is a California bike. Dealer says it is, but he can't track engine # (381DHW64518) to see which mill it is. Any guidance out there? Come on Greg, you know most of this stuff!
 Thanks

Hey Steve,
  I was told that all of the Triumphs were 50 State bikes in '95, I can't imagine that they changed that in the "Modular constructed bikes".

Hi Steve,  Thanks for the compliment. I bought my '96 900 BRG in 2002 and didn't know Jack at the time. My brother Kurt has a '95 900 and racked up a lot of miles, up to 260,000 now. With his help at the start I've done the normal maintainance stuff on my BRG for the last 90,000 miles. However I have rebuilt a couple of other Trophys down to the crankshaft in recent years. Building my '98 Spint Executive from Ebay parts was very rewarding. Good learning experience. My Sprint started its life as a Trophy from California. There are couple of differences from 49 State bikes but not much. Your post mentioned "cat cons", I guessing that's catayltic converter. I know of no cataytic converters on our Trophys. The new 700 lb. Trophys probably have them.
 One of your post said you live at Lake Arrowhead. I live in Apple Valley, not too far away. I'd be willing to ride up to your place and check out your bikes. Jack Byers also lives in the area. We could meet up at Douglas Triumph.

Dealers should be able to track engine numbers against frame numbers.
Have you tried calling another dealer?
Also, an AutoCheck would give any insurance activity against the VIN that might uncover any changes that you would want to know about.

Gee, do they really weigh in at 700lbs? After recently pushing my 518lb
beast nearly a mile. I can't even imagine seven hundred..

Dry weight is 518 lbs according to one specs list.  Add to that fuel, oil, coolant, brake fluids, fork oil (probably about 60 lbs), and panniers/contents.  Should be under 600 lbs before loading the panniers.

Re: Fixin' BBBB,got new Exec.

So the 2015 model weights in at 694lbs wet. And our models are 518lbs dry.
So if you add 6.6gals of fuel plus a gallon of oil and coolant. What would
that talley up to? Certainly doesn't sound like 176lbs.

Samuel


Dry weight is 518 lbs according to one specs list.  Add to that fuel, oil,
coolant, brake fluids, fork oil (probably about 60 lbs), and
panniers/contents.  Should be under 600 lbs before loading the panniers.

 Gee, do they really weigh in at 700lbs? After recently pushing my 518lb
beast nearly a mile. I can't even imagine seven hundred..

Have you tried calling another dealer?

Also, an AutoCheck would give any insurance activity against the VIN that
might uncover any changes that you would want to know about.

 Remember '98 Trophy w/ bad top end @  38K ? still working on it. But
picked up cherry '98 Sprint Exec, platinum, 16K. am questioning which
engine I have. It has no evap controls, nor cat cons, like my 96 BBB Trophy
had. Don't know if it is a California bike. Dealer says it is, but he can't
track engine # (381DHW64518) to see which mill it is. Any guidance out
there? Come on Greg, you know most of this stuff!

Fuel is about 6lbs per gallon
Oil is approx 8lbs per gallon
Coolant weight ?
Brake / Clutch fluid
An assumption of near 55lbs over dry weight is likely not that far off.
That brings weight ready to ride near 575lbs. Maybe a tad less for the 900's (Trophy light).

Hey Greg...
 

 Two weeks after buying Sprint Exec, went to Douglas Triumph and there sat '07 black Tiger 1050, all decked out, 17k miles. Could not resist. Have been enjoying it ever since.
 

 Anyway finally got around to fixing '98 BBBB Platinum. Over a period of time, I poured a little Marvel Mystery Oil into cylinders and turned crank by hand. Then changed oil and rechecked compression. Viola!!! Good compression across the board. Fired it up and did the Italian Tune Tune up. Still ran a little stumbly on bottom end. Pulled carbs and did complete rebuild. All OK but put in all new O-rings. What a difference.!
 Runs as good as it ever has.
 

 So Exec is for sale, as is BBBB, if my wife will let me. She's pretty attached to BBBB.
 

 All's well that ends well.

Hi Steve, I rode a platinum Sprint at Douglas Triumph a few months back. Is that one yours? The weather is better and I'm always looking for a good ride. I'm willing to ride to Arrowhead to see your bikes.

Greg..Yep it was mine. Bought an '07 tiger 1050 with all the fixin's. Even more comfortable than the '98 BBBB, and does it scoot. Already put three 1000 mile weekends on it.
