is this right
« on: January 30, 2016, 01:17:12 AM »
G,day all I have after much buggering around installed my right hand shift lever ,left brake lever etc. the cabling to the brake.   if anyone can help with a photo or confirm my routing , I ran the cable from the paddle around the back of the down tube across the rear guard in-between the wiring for the rear light and ran it down just in front of the rear shock  to the rear brake .I will add photos in a minute cheers

COXY

I Have A GTO That I Did This To
Mine Is The Same Way
I Never Saw One Factory Installed In The US
So Im Just Guessing Like You
It Seems To Fit The Best That Way
Have You Rode It
You Got To Pay Attention
All The Bikes I Have Are The Other Way
Keeps Me Thinken

This makes life easier for a guy who rides Triumphs or other British bikes with left brake right shift. I think I've gleaned from my readings on this site, that you have a Triumph, right coxy?
I had a crash on a Norton switching from my GTR, so I definitely understand the motivation to convert.

I haven't ridden it yet , I should have the kick start back from my metal guru any day bent to the photo that moonpup sent me thanks heaps again!!!!!!
my spare spare tank, oil tank and side covers are off at the painters which I am looking forward to get
my triumph is the first of the front and rear disc brake model so its also the first of the lefthand gear change so I will have a right Japanese bike and a left britt bike confusing .
