    Thank you for sharing.
    

  2. thanks for taking the time to post this- on a side note did you have to do anything else other than cut down the tank mounts and change the bolt end to get the bonnie/thrux tank to fit? was the tunnel ok? we'd love to do that to our america- had a quick eyeball with my bonnie efi tank but it's always good to get info from someone whose done it!

  3. Great video….Many thanks for doing this, it's really helped.

    There was a mistake made……You don't lube the back side of the bearing……You lube the side where the crank or rod throws are contacting

    hi Fred,
    I was told different. I was told by the guys who make the big bore kits that both sides is the correct way. thanks for your interest in the video.

  6. Awesome video this may come in handy later, my bike has 19,680 miles 03 triumph bonnaville america. I've done regular oil changes with the best 10w40 I can find and never ride my bike heavy, how many miles do you think m engine should last?

  7. Where can I even buy the engine parts? I've googled and cannot find anything about the actual engine parts and or cost of the parts or total rebuild. Please let me know the total cost and where I could get the parts to do this rebuild on a 2003 Triumph Bonneville America, thanks.

  8. Brin morris says:

    parts can be found at triumph performance USA or tpusa

  9. God I wish I had a garage. I'd do this shit all day.

  10. Zippidy do dah!  Engine porn!

  11. +shadetree surgeon Before you think about a bigger bike for Jess you might want to take a look at this big-bore kit/rebuild of the bike. A lighter bike with more HP = more fun 🙂 

  12. I know all about Carillo con rods. They are high-quality products. Heavy-duty rods are a must for any high-performance engine that's going to get beat on. You were wise to buy a bike that wasn't expensive initially. I'm thinking about doing similar work on my buddy's Speedmaster.  In my opinion, the newer Triumphs are worth the money/effort regarding internal engine mods.

  13. nice vid . greets from Belgium

  14. Don't suppose you did a teardown video?

  15. There's an old saying, "Horsepower costs money. How fast do you want to go?"

  16. Hi Brin. Regarding the 994 kit, did you fly-cut the cylinder spigot holes for bigger bore cylinders? You did up a great video here, man! Ride safe.

    criscraft:does anyone have vale setting shim replcement

  18. Jean Babbitt says:

    Never in all my years of engine rebuilds did I lube a back side of a bearing,#2 where are the medical gloves to keep everything clean…

  19. HORNET6 says:

    How did you get the cases so nice and clean?  They are spotless!

  20. CHAOBWKBOB says:

    if i have hard time to find neutral of my 2007 bonneville, could it be the star shape drum wear out? (the parts you mentioned at 17:32 minutes of this video) or probably the detained arm spring need to be replaced?
