The muffler bearing went bad when he let the blinker fluid get too low.

Muffler bearings are very precise and delicate parts. A slight misalignment can foul them up.

Actually...All the neglect he's been giving to it with his new love (cb750) getting all the attention...It laughed at him, a big one and left little pieces throughout his garage

After that it refused to start for him...

Triumph Speed Triple

Honestly...I like the way the Street Triple looks and sits better. My problem with both these bikes is I can't get past the strange looking and oddly mounted headlights It's just weird to look like the fork mount lights we have but really just hanging off the front of the frame.

Press Any Key To Continue.

As for the eyeballs, I think the headlights are what makes it very distinctive. I like it!

He should do the exhaust. The S3 is one of the best sounding bikes with a good exhaust. I love spending other folks money!!!

first is bar end mirrors.

already has heated handgrips, will lengthen my riding season this year, and has a gear indicator, useless to me really but i didn't pay for it, directly, or have to deal with it, anythings goes wrong i'll just rip it out, gently of course.

build a man a fire and he will be warm for a night.
light a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life.

congrats! i get the itch to trade,sell, add, buy a bike nearly every year and I've been looking closely at the s3. my 03 sv1000 w/ 40k i'm not that intrested in riding much these days as i love riding my 919. I've ridden my buddies and I like it very much. sportier than 919 but not so focsed that it is not great to live with.....and the motor is fantastic

I would probably spring for a used one for $7k or less as that what the 05-07--seem to be priced around.

anyone looking to unload an s3

Those look stock, but I'm not an S3 expert. Maybe they were gutted to some degree? Check out the Arrow exhausts, they are built working with Triumph.
