Please note: A complete User’s Manual and Installation Guide, along with a companion video, will be available in late April, 2018.

Installation requires a small number of common tools for the KM T750-7379, which is designed to fit oil in frame 750’s from 1973 to 1979. Installation time is under 3 hours for the average home mechanic. Other models for other Triumph years, will be similar. Highlights are as noted below:

  • Prepping the bike
    • Removal of gas tank
    • Removal of the airbox assembly
    • Removal of timing side passenger footpeg
    • Removal of two engine plate fasteners
    • Removal of two bottom fender bolts
    • Removal of two handlebar clamp bolts
    • Removal of kick start assembly
  • Installation
    • The dash assembly is mounted to the handlebar clamps with two new cap screws. Its cable is run along the frame under the tank and plugs into the starter control unit (SCU), which mounts under the battery box.
    • The SCU is secured to a mounting plate that attaches to the two bottom fender bolts under the battery. A main harness is attached with breakout connectors for the proximity switch and solenoid, along with a power supply pigtail.
    • The actuator/mounting plate attaches at three points – two engine plate locations and the passenger footpeg location. Longer bolts and spacers are provided.
    • The proximity switch attaches mounting plate and its cable connected to the main harness.
    • The pneumatic hose and solenoid assembly mounts under the air box side.   The solenoid is connected to the SCU main cable assembly. One hose routes back to the satchel and the other to the actuator.
    • The combination shaft is mounted to the kick start shaft with the same tapered bolt as stock. A second tapered bolt is supplied to mount the kick start assembly to the combination shaft.
    • For left hand shift models with the rear brake switch on the timing side, the switch is relocated to the mounting plate and connected via a short extension cable to the main bike harness.
    • The power pigtail is connected to the flasher unit connector via a three way spade adapter. The ground lead is secured to an engine bolt.
    • The airbox assembly is then reassembled. The downdraft plastic inlets on later machines are not used, however. The tank is then reinstalled.
    • If an on board air system is used, the tank and regulators are mounted in a KickMagic satchel and secured to the frame and/or grab rail with straps or in a suitable owner saddlebag.
  • Removal of major components.
    • The system is designed for easy removal of the major components for a return to “stock” look, for example when you park you bike in the living room for the winter.
    • The actuator, combination shaft and mounting plate can be removed in about 15 minutes.
    • The satchel is removable in less than a minute.
    • The dash, SCU and pneumatic solenoid would normally be left installed, but could also be removed in 15 minutes.
