Hey, thanks! I love the rear sets. The quality and fit are superb, and I much prefer the more aggressive stance they give you. The position of the pegs are moved 27.5mm back and 50mm up. Doesnít seem like much but itís definitely a big difference that you feel, mainly in the vertical change. My knees and feet are up higher, which is what I wanted. It makes it easier to grip the tank with your knees. Iím 6ft, so if youíre taller it might feel too compact. Also, the pegs are more narrow, so your feet are up against the bike and you really use those heel plates.

Install was fairly easy, but the instruction are very vague. You have to figure some things out on your own. The shift side was simple, but the brake side took me a few hours to figure out and adjust. I had to look at the diagrams that are in the instructions and piece it together. You donít need to modify anything, they bolt right in.

Shifting seems much smoother and faster to me. You have 3 positions for the shifter so you can change the stroke to your liking. Each pedal tip has two positions so you can change the distance from the pegs and the brake pedal height can be adjusted as well.

Overall Iím super happy with them. Definitely recommend them if you want a more aggressive stance.

Awesome! yea im 5'6 so my knees just barely touch the bottom part of the tank so i have been looking for something that will help raise my knees so i can grip the tank better. This and the steering damper are my next must have mods. Thanks for info!

If you get them let me know if you need any help with the install. One thing to note, the main bolts that secure the pedals to the brackets have red loctite on them and are set at the factory. Don't unscrew them. I learned this the hard way and had to clean out the dried loctite on one of them. It might seem like you can't install the brake side without removing the pedal, but you can.

Here's my 2019 silver ice Thruxton R!

Not too many mods yet, but I love everything about the bike thus far!

Mods so far include:
LED shorty OEM signals
Analog motors FEK
Larson upholstery seat cover and matching tank pads in tobacco brown
Motone xpipe
Vance and Hines slip ons
Tamarit belly pan

Future mods:
PCV
Might switch to arrow headers and either the cone or BC GP exhaust

Other than that, the bike is everything I've wanted it to be and more honestly! Cheers!

Got my New Rage fender eliminator....
I live in PA does anyone know if it's okay to install the tuckef license plate bracket in pa. Or where I might find that information I like that look better but I also don't want to get pulled over.

I found this:
*Registration plate lamp.*A registration plate lamp, if originally equipped, shall emit white light and make the registration plate visible from a distance of 50 feet to the rear of the vehicle

The license plate is hanging loosely from its mounting bracket.

*******(C)***The license plate is obscured so that the numbers cannot be identified.

*******(D)***The license plate lamp, if so equipped, does not illuminate the license plate.

Does the tucked plate meet ANY of those requirements?

TEC finally came out with their Raider 2 into 1 exhaust system for the 1200 Thruxton. The Rebel 2 into 1 they currently had did not fit the Thruxton, though it seemed like it might. I shopped around and settled on the Raider (Thanks Tricolour for the input re:Iron Cobra!). I just installed it a few days ago - and it looks a lot cleaner, weighs a lot less and has a great sporty sound. May even be a bit too loud for me. It may be my imagination - but I think the bike is even faster! The ECU seems to have adapted without any special attention on my part., but Ive only ridden it about 15 - 20 minutes. Oh and the catalytic convertor removal was a bitch, but overall, Im quite pleased!

All my other small modifications to date are listed earlier - so am just showing the new system on the bike.

Here is a picture 50feet away(as stated in PA law). I can clearly see the plate number with the naked eye. I think I'm good.
