Hi GP, the same happened when Volvos first appeared in the UK. Their owners got fed up with drivers flashing them they had their lights on. Sadly no answer to my original question regarding the differing quality of filament style bulbs. I shall have to do further research. As always I am not inclined to swap to modern equivalents and stronger alternators etc. Go down that road and when exactly does my original Triumph stop being original. I guarantee when it came up for sale the bike that was closest to original factory spec. would fetch the highest price. When I want modern I ride my FJR. Maybe we could start a movement called the KIO club. "Keep it Original". I genuinely feel disappointed when I see old Triumphs for sale that have been heavily modified and it absolutely slashes their value.

My 72 Tiger is still basically origional.....minus the rubber mounts, tires and exhaust. Tried to keep it as original as I could. Bought it in 2017 with 16,000 miles. Was sitting in a friend of my uncles garage. He hardly ever rode it. Lots of hours polishing up the aluminum. Installed a new set of rings. Bottom end has not been cracked open yet. This one is next after the T140 I'm working on
