British Bikes / Triumph TR 250 1971

Does anyone own or have experience of the above bike as I have just bought one, it starts fine and runs very smoothly at low revs when accelerating 15mph + the motor seems to die and not respond to throttle position
 when I shut off and come down to under 15 mph it all feels normal ? could I have an electrical breakdown or short maybe  ?

any workshop tips on re installing the front fork legs on my 68 T100

 I have compressed the main spring with cable ties and with gaiter and headlamp bracket on I can "manoeuvre" the whole leg just up into

 the underside of the top fork yoke but not just enough to catch the threads with the top nut

do I have to buy the Triumph tool as mentioned in the manual or am I missing the obvious remedy for this re install  situation  ?

all input very gratefully received

I know this is stupid question of the day as I type  however I am restoring my 68 T 100 and am stuck as to how I can remove the chrome fork shrouds that carry the fork stanchion oil seal I assumed there were small allan grub screws on the lower tapered section but upon clearing away 50+ years of road DNA these are what looks like small tapered rivet's ?
 hoping someone can guide me on removal of these items

I have a T 100 68 and notice the ammeter needle  ( Lucas type) stays in the centre of the dial just fluctuating left to right very slightly even at cruising speed 50/60 mph,

 with the engine running and multimeter on the battery I get a constant reading of 13 + volts am I to assume the ammeter has had its time looks like the original from 68 or can it be overhauled

PS after a ride the battery always shows in the region of 12.7 +

I hope a member can advise me I have a T 100 first registered 21-5-1969 frame No. H65380  engine No.H39492
 am I correct in thinking that after 20-5-2018 I no longer need to tax or MOT my bike ? I have just received a letter from DVLA to say my bike must be taxed and MOTd ? or placed on SORN.

  We have just moved from Spain to Wales after 20 years so I am very out of touch with UK legal requirements
   all input gratefully received.

I have just become the proud owner of a Triumph T 100 S 1968 I want to do an oil change on engine/gearbox/primary
I am clear about the engine oil but how do I change the gearbox oil ?
there is a nut underneath the motor which \I think is also a gauze filter does this drain the g/box then is there a level outlet for the G/box ?
as for primary is the chain tension nut at the rear of the left side case the correct drain plug ?
also am I correct that the g/box takes hypoid 90 oil and the engine and primary take 20/50 oil

all input gratefully recived
