Re: What to expect from an Triumph Sprint Executive?

My ride for the past 11 years has a 96 Sprint (candy apple

It’s at 84,000 miles now.

On its 2nd set of sprockets (changed ’em out around 50k miles), several many sets of tyres and

Never had the carbs apart.

At 50k miles, my starter’s sprag-clutch south. Probably my own fault for to start the bike for the first of the new riding season on a cold day in winter with a VERY battery, which these sprag clutches don’t a’tall.

If you’re near bring it to the Triumph Come Rally at White Rose MC, York, I’d love to see it.
