SPORT Riding on the Darkside - Triumph Rocket III
Car tires aren't for sport riding? Think again. Here is me and my car tire shod supercharged Rocket 3 running with fellow sport motorcycling nuts at the TWiSTAR Rally May 2008. Tire: Bridgestone Potenza RE-01R 245/45ZR18. This video's intent is to give a good view of the rear tire working. It is not my best video of sport riding on a car tire. See my other videos for corner working. All of them on the Rocket are using a car tire.
Dynoing with Supercharged Triumph Rocket 3
My Triumph Rocket III "MissTress" has a date with the Dyno tuner, Silverback Performance (www.silverbackperformance.net). Supercharger by TTS Performance (www.tts-performance.co.uk). Final results: 231.8 bhp and 206 Ft/lb and a SWEET running machine!

Rocket 3 TTS Rotrex Supercharger
The 1st start up after fitting the TTS Supercharger kit with C30 Rotrex unit to a 2005 Rocket III.
I replaced the auto belt tensioner for the manual tensioner and a stud fitted to the drive pinion rather than the bolt which was prone to breakage. You will note that the drive pulley nut appears to run out of true, illusion only created by the washer and the plastic within the nut. The pinion shaft and belt drive pulley have been dialled for accuracy during assembly.
Producing 276 hp with TuneBoy mapping by Wayne.
Some further adjustments have been made for this particular bike.
Total fitting time for a Rocket with all standard trims refitted and the installation of braiding for the oil lines to and from the charger unit, 27 hours.
Power delivery is exceptionally smooth and instantaneous. Although the idle control unit has been removed, with careful manual adjustment, cold starting is effortless with no throttle, straight off the button and steady at 800rpm cold, 900 rpm hot.
Using the TuneEdit programme I recommend restricting the rev limiter to 3500rpm for the first 500km to allow correct run in of the Rotrex unit, and limiting the secondary butterflies to 70% opening.
After run in.....FULL POWER!!!
This is the first Rocket to be fitted with a TTS kit here in New Zealand.
