Dont they already have Quickshifters?

Oh and do you have a second set of heated grips available? :P Happy to pay ;)


Nope QS not standard on speed. Wasn't fussed at first. But all the reviews rave about it. Especially the down shift.

Heated grips... Think yours would be different to mine but can check


I'd be grateful. Bars and TFT screen is the same so good chance they are the same :)

OK. Decided to pick up the bike on Friday after work. About 1pm. Was gonna book a day off in the week. But too much to do and so little days to use as holidays.

Collected my evotech tail tidy last night. So might fit that on Friday. Just need to order a smaller number plate today.

Thanks. Looking at the fitting instructions the only difference is the routing of cables, so if you ever come across ex demo or otherwise aquired units, let me know as i do want some, but not at the price triumph want from a dealer!

With this speed triple I decided to fit a tail tidy straight away. So just been doing that.

It then highlighted that the cans weren't actually aligned properly. So I then had to take all the body work off to fix that.

Need to make pics smaller as too big uploading from my phone

Nice work. The tail tidy looks good. A lot of the aftermarket ones look pretty shite these days and worse than the original but that looks neat.
