Joker Machine Clip-On Handlebars

Joker Machine motorcycle clip ons - 41mm fork tube, 1" diameter bar.

If you’ve been following along, you know that the first mod I did to my 2014 Triumph Bonneville T100 Black motorcycle was swapping the stock handlebar with a Dime City Clubman-type “Speed” drop handlebar. A very cool new look, to say the least. Recently, Joker Machine sent me a pair of clip-on handlebars to review. […]

Lonelec Interface Cable for TuneECU

LonElec interface cable to patch into the ECU of a Triumph Bonneville T100 motorcycle. Bonnie Café.

Let me preface by saying, “tread lightly.” With certain mods that I’ve been doing (swapping the exhaust with an aftermarket TEC 2-1 and removing the baffle), those that I have planned (air box removal), or simply just wanting to learn more about how to make my bike perform as best as possible, TuneECU has been […]

TEC Progressive Fork Springs

TEC progressive fork springs for a Triumph Bonneville T100 motorcycle. Bonnie Café.

Back in January, I installed some pretty awesome TEC rear shocks. My intention was to replace the fork springs at the same time. Unfortunately, TEC was back ordered until April. Well, guess what? It was a wait but I finally received the fork springs, as promised, end of April. Before we begin the install, exactly […]

SMT MOTO Headlamp Brackets (aka Ears)

SMT MOTO aluminum headlamp ears for a Triumph Bonneville T100 motorcycle. Bonnie Café.

Back in Mod #20, I replaced the front turn signals and positioned them off of the headlamp ears. Joker Machine had sent me a pair of clip ons to try and in order to do so, they need to be installed on the forks. This requires replacing the stock OEM headlamp ears since they cover […]

BONNIE MOD UPDATE
TEC 2-1 Exhaust with Baffle Removed

Removing the circlip holding in the baffle of a TEC 2-1 exhaust for a Triumph Bonneville T100 motorcycle. Bonnie Café.

As you know, one of my first reviews many moons ago was where I swapped the stock pipes for the TEC 2-1 pipes. This past weekend, I finally picked up a good pair of circlip pliers and got around to removing the baffle in the interest of hearing what it would sound like, and I […]

Scottoiler V System Auto Chain Lubricator

The reservoir (RVM) of the Scottoiler V System vacuum auto chain lubricating system for a Triumph Bonneville T100 motorcycle. Bonnie Café.

My bike, a 2014 T100, is a daily commuter. It dawned on me after riding throughout this past winter that I had totally neglected my chain. As you can see in the above photo, the chain and sprocket are completely dry. In fact, rust is even setting in. Embarrassing, quite honestly. I took to Google to research […]

Triumph Bonneville T100 Torque Settings

Tekton torque wrench used to tighten down bolts on my Triumph Bonneville T100 motorcycle. Bonnie Café.

I culled these torque settings from the 2012 Hayne’s Service & Repair Manual. What I’m posting applies ONLY to a late model Triumph Bonneville T100 (EFI). I created this page as an easy way to pull up this data on my smart phone when I’m outside working on the bike. I hope you find it […]
