Default 2007 Triumph Speed Triple - $3000

So here is the story in case you haven't read this thread:

http://www.bandofriders.net/forums/s...ad.php?t=86850

Looks like what I had in the bike for coolant froze over the winter. The bike still runs, idles fine, doesn't smoke or anything (I honestly rode it around the neighborhood this morning). Unless I said something, no one would probably know. The bike is in great shape, I bought it with 1500 miles on it and it's never been beaten, tracked or stunted.

So this is where I stand: I am still working through figuring out what is wrong with the bike but to be honest, I have my eye on something else already and I'm willing to sell the bike as-is. I will continue to pick away at it and do research so if I get it fixed in the mean time, the price is going to go up another two grand.I have a feeling it is something simple, like a seal, that will be a cheap fix. So now is the time to get a great bike for cheap: take advantage of my impatience and stupidity!

Details-
2007 Triumph Speed Triple
13,968 Miles
Clean title in hand
Never been down or dropped

Upgrades -
Yamaha R6 calipers and master
Steel braided brake lines all the way around
Speed bleeders all the way around
Arrow Low mount exhaust with Triumph ECU tune
ASV shorty levers
Sargeant Seat
CRG bar end mirrors
Techspec tank protector and tank grips
Rizoma fat bar
LSL steering stabilizer
Woodcraft Frame Sliders
Some powdercoated parts (like heel guards and the like)

Also included in the sale, will be all of the original spare parts, Pitbull rear stand and some other miscellaneous stuff that I will find between now and then.

I'll update the post with additional stuff I think of, and answer any questions.

Contact me on here or at eight-oh-too, five-five-ate 6213

(Pics from this morning)

Thanks for the offer Chris, but like I said, I have my eye on something else

Sooo tempting.... So in that other thread you hadn't turned it over (sensible) or dug in to see the situation with freeze plugs.

Since you now say you've ridden it, could you fill in the gaps? Did you drain/refill and just fire it up, or what?

Sure. I called a couple Triumph dealers and also went through the repair manual, and no one seems to believe that the bike has freeze plugs (at least, not the same as a Jap bike). It sounds like where the freeze plugs would be, there is some sort of threaded insert which obviously wouldn't pop like a freeze plug.

When I went to change the oil last Saturday, the bike had not been started since last year. I drained the oil, noticed the issue, and didn't go any further. Yesterday morning I drained and replaced the oil three times to flush it, and used distilled water to flush the coolant system. Each time I started the bike, let it get up to temp (until the fan kicked on), checked the entire thing for leaks, then drained both the water and the oil. I only rode it around the neighborhood (maybe a 1/4 mile), and didn't get out of 3rd gear or high RPMs. Here is a vid of the bike running yesterday and also another of the oil being drained and what color it was. The bike seems to run fine, doesn't smoke or anything which leads me to believe it isn't something catastrophic, probably a seal or something like I said above.

Does that answer your questions?

many of those parts came from a very good home...

so did you drain the oil AFTER you let it get to temp and rode it around? if so what did that stuff look like? white as well?

Yea, if you watch the video in the link above, it came out all milky white. The oil and water were separate when I initially drained it (before it ran), then while I was flushing it and draining it, it came out white.

Being a former Triumph guru, do you know have any good sources of info?
