That's been a hot topic too many times on here. Chances are if you do not touch the induction side at all, it will probably be ok. But....you may add well finish it up with by taking out the air box baffle and snorkel and install a free flow air filter and re map. It's a world of difference. I used a TTP tune and it's awesome. Just an idea for you to think about.

I installed Motone headlamp ears and the Cognito moto flat gauge bracket w/ ignition relocator. I love how much it cleaned up the front!

Nice looking front end, what type of bracket are you using to mount your turn indicators?

There are certain things in life that one can see, taste, feel or experience which have that quality of universal desirability and appreciation.
The Triumph Bonneville is firmly on that limited list.

Agreed, very reminiscent of the 60's concert posters style lettering. It looks like it is painted on, but wouldn't it be cool if that was cut out of a knee pad to give you some extra grip as well!

Yes, about a week ago. A very smart enthusiast fell in love with it (like your wife).

Thanks! I'm using the British Customs bracket that goes where the rectifier is mounted stock.

Thanks! Definitely inspired by the 60's psychedelic stuff with a dash of punk rock. I actually cut this out of vinyl. Wasn't brave enough for paint.
