Triumph T12.2

triumph bonneville t100 t12.2Triumph T12.2 is born with her sister, T12, for 2012 Tridays and it is a modern interpretation of glorious British café racers.
The main modification regards the belt transmission to eliminate maintenance and minimize power loss. Further, it permits to adopt a rear wheel 17” Metzeler Sporttec M3 tyre (160/60 size). At the rear work two higher performances Bitubo absorbers. At the front there is a 2007 Speed Triple fork with a modified hydraulics and a new geometry to copy Bonnie's. Free Spirits Triumph T12.2The 320 mm disc brakes by Newfren are completed with callipers and radial pump by Brembo. The CNC machined footpegs erase rise (55 mm) and move back (100 mm) the foot position, close to the geometry of Triumph Thruxton. The engine guards, made in plastic materials, disperse the impact on several part instead on one spot. Light steel intake, 180° curved with conic filters bring air to the engine. The 2in2 exhaust, with 45 mm stainless steel intake with new mufflers. The DB killer does not affect negatively on Triumph T12.2 performances.

The T12.2 has in common with the T12 the following points:

Free Spirits Triumph T12.21) 307585: Belt transmission primarily made to reduce “loss of power” between transmission box and rear wheel, over to eliminate completely maintenance (not cleaning, notgreasing, necessary on chain transmission).
65 teeth Alloy Rear pulley
29 teeth Alloy front pinion with “tempersteel insert”
130 teeth belt
Ratio equal to the original
WARNING! The OEM sprocket cover and the chain guard are not compatible with this kit. The sprocket cover can be replaced with the cod. 307514.

2) 306103: The new billet Footrest are made of a special alloy search, developed and hardly tested during 10 years of racing with Buell, this “drivers footrest” offer an excellent Free Spirits Triumph T12.2grip and comfort also with the rain without damage shoes. Position it’s has been move backward around 100 mm and raised to 55 mm, similar to the Truxton model. It use original master cylinder.

3) 308514: This new engine crash pad has been designed to dissipate-disperse the power of the collision to more points, avoiding absolutely to concentrate it in one point (also this experience has been tested hardly during race season). Fork and swing arm crash pads use a special material that slide instead caching-grasping asphalt and this why fastener bolt are located internally, instead been out at the same level.

4) 304020: Dual intake manifold, this new solution has be developed to allow conical filter to work as they born for, narrow end in the front, large area in the rear, otherwise large surface would create a “vacuum effect” which is not a real improvement. This was possible due to our special 180 degree elbow. The 57 mm diameter tubular stainless steel elbow is produced by a unique patented process that allows the use of thin walled lightweight construction (322 gr including looking-ring, while the K&N filter is 162 gr). The quantity of air “bringing in” is so high that mixture result extremely lean (Truxton cup racing map are not nearly enough) therefore is absolutely necessary to add our “fuel injector unit” to add fuel.

While these are the ones that make it different:

1) Suspension and brake.
Also in this case Bitubo support was important and constant. Beside the Rear shock absorbers which are the same as the T12, on the front end of the T12.2 we use the original fork from Triumph Speed 2007, Bitubo replace spring, oil and pistons to improve Rebound and Compression, over the proper adjustment obviously. We build new triple trees to accept the new USD fork but with 55mm of offset, in order to have the same trail of the Bonneville (not the speed one) to avoid the bike to be too reactive. We replace stock caliper with the high performance Radial Monobloc Brembo caliper and supported with stainless-steel embroidered brake-line and a radial 19x18 Brembo master-cylinder. Also in this case under our design and specification “New Fren” supports us with building new 320 mm front brake rotors Completely Tempered with hub and carrier in Ergal. All this work was done mainly for two reasons; A) to have a massive brake power and B) to have spoken wheel instead alloy, therefore we build a new dual flange hub to accept (without any modification) original Boneville brake rotors. This hub accepts also original 36 spoke and original rims, new axle spacer allow to mount the bigger “speed 25 mm axle” on the same size bearing. On the rear wheel we kept original hub and spokes and replace original rim with the larger “triumph legend tt” purpose was to have 17” wheel front and rear.

2) The new slip-on billet conical exhaust was expressively build to be mount on original headers and use the same new concept where decibels are not muffled with the classics (caps) "db killer" but with our unique exhaust baffle design, resulting in no loss of power.

3) New tail section was especially made for the T12.2 (so far only as prototype) same as the new front board with single headlight.

And here, in detail, some kit mounted on this bike:

049931: This unit that uses generation 3 Dobeck TFI technology and has several advantages over previous models. With this fuel injection unit mixture adjustment is by means of 3 push buttons on the top face of the controller, supplied with new simplified instructions.

301901: Our "risers block" are made of light alloy tempered, and are available in black. They are equipped with new bolts. Fit to the original position. Raise the rear of about 35 mm.

302304: Kit steering plates designed to accommodate USD Showa fork. Wheelbase as the original Triumph Speed Triple, and caster as the original Triumph Bonneville. These fabulous CNC machined billet triple trees fit on Triumph Bonneville T100. Can be adapted also for Triumph Thruxton, Scrambler, and SE. Available in either black or natural silver finish.

Free Spirits Triumph T12.2303809: Front brake disc with braking band of special high quality carbon steel, heat treated to the full thickness and is formed with laser cutting, CNC hub and pawls variable floating. Particular attention is given to the final finishing of the product to ensure the parallelism of the braking band. It mounts easily on the original side.

303900: Front hub CNC machined billet alloy with flanges formed on the right side, to accommodate the right disc brakes.

307551: This new belt tensioner is designed to keep a constant but light tension on the belt throughout swing-arm movement, the reduced stress and shock loads not only benefit and prevent premature lengthen of the belt but also and above all reduce stress from wheel and gearbox output bearings. Maintenance free belt tensioner. To obtain correct tension: Lean belt on the idle sprocket and slightly press it down (just a little). Fasten two mounting bolts at Nm 28 (to be add on existing instruction). Part for Triumph Classic, Bonneville, Scrambler, Thruxton.

307514: Exciting new design of aluminium sprocket cover. Also compatible with kit 307585, 307586 and 307587.

301200: This kit considerably improves original fork, which has an almost absent hydraulic action, into a well controlled, progressive and stable unit. New valve kit, increases front stability, braking characteristics by giving perfect control of deceleration even under the hardest braking, it increases the grip entering and exiting a curve thanks to the immediate hydraulic control. Part for Triumph Classic, Bonneville, Scrambler, Thruxton. Packaging contents detailed instructions, with attached shims chart.

309010: This product is designed to re-position your key ignition to the right side of the frame for better access. CNC machined from billet aluminum avaiable Black.
