Ahhh now we’re cookin’ the best of bug-eye years. No mo’ dam starter clutch problems, and best of all, no electronic trickery or known faults.
I had that model (‘10) ‘till I crashed it back in January and replaced with a ‘16 R.
It looks absolutely peachy. Add full sliders and engine covers. Those unmolested clutch and stator covers are a rarity. And maybe a sleek set of rizoma levers and grips, perhaps replace the pee-cup style brake fluid reservoir with a all black triumph option accessory or also a rizoma (although the rizoma is a bit cliched by now and the new ones aren’t anything special imho)
Sargent seat will work wonders and you can have it done for about $200 since they’ll need you to send your seat in bc they don’t have the pan for that model. You can choose your materials and thread colors, their cost. service is amazing. I did mine with carbon fiber vinyl and leather on the rider section mocking Triumph’s gel seat weave and silver thread color And asked for no Sargent tag (tacky imo). You can even customize the angle just by telling them to make the front or back thicker or thinner to your liking. Their foam allows you to do 300 mile days with ease. Best $200 spent ever.
Quickshifter: I use QS Easy distributes by bluemonkey.com($240ish?) No issues up or downshifting. Second best $200 spent lol.
Tail pack: Triumph OEM is sturdy textile compact enough not to be in the way but big enough to hold a change of clothes and a small toolkit. Easy zippered attachment to seat and a handle to carry around.
Congrats and don’t crash it, you probably won’t come across one this clean next time around.
