Oil Filler Plugs:
LC Fabrications vs Joker Machine vs Triumph

Oil Filler Caps: LC Fabrications vs Joker Machine vs Stock Triumph. Bonnie Café.

I received a couple different oil filler plugs (or caps, if you’d like), so I thought I’d compare them. The stock Triumph oil filler plug: The first contender, the LC Fabrications oil cap: And the second, the Joker Machine oil filler plug: Both are aluminum, very well machined and come with O-ring. Let’s compare both […]

BONNIE MOD #20
Lockhart-Phillips Turn Signals,
British Customs Front Turn Signal Bracket, &
New Bonneville Front Signal Wiring Interconnects

British Customs Front Turn Signals Relocation Bracket. Bonnie Café.

For this post, I’m going to do something a little different and combine a couple different installs. In Bonnie Mod #16, I installed the Maund Speed Fender Eliminator Kit. I installed all four Lockhart-Phillips turn signals (with the help of the New Bonneville harness and interconnects) but didn’t document the front turn signals. I’m going […]

BONNIE MOD #19
Joker Machine LED Lucas Tail Light &
Kisan Tailblazer Brake Light Modulator

Joker Machine Rear Tail Light and Kisan Brake Modulator for a Triumph Bonneville. Bonnie Café.

In Bonnie Mod #16, I removed the rear fender by way of the Maund Speed kit. The Maund bracket itself is a very solid piece.

Removing the rear fender looks extremely cool but functionally, […]

This left two holes in the clutch and brake control assemblies. Visually, not *terribly* noticeable but after a while trace amounts of rust […]

BONNIE MOD UPDATE
British Customs vs Home Depot

British Customs vs Home Depot hardware for a Triumph Bonneville T100 motorcycle. Bonnie Café.

With all the modding I’ve been doing, I find that I have to pull the seat off a lot. (Actually, it’s probably because I create a lot of short circuits, but I digress.) Anyway, I have to pull the seat off a lot. The stock Triumph way is bullocks. Very cumbersome. After a few times, […]

BONNIE GEAR
Venture Heat Heated Motorcycle Gloves

Venture Heat heated motorcycle gloves. These have been in daily use for three months during this past brutal NY winter. Notice that one of the voltage regulators is missing. Bonnie Café.

Since the inception of this blog, I haven’t reviewed any apparel or gear, but I’ve been wanting to, so let me start with a review of these gloves. I decided that I’m not going to review anything until I feel I’ve run it through its paces. Personally, I don’t think reviews of a newly acquired […]
