The GT stuck it up front left on the frame, I stuck mine under the battery tray on Sir Costalot.
Under the battery tray is a great spot

I probably need an intervention because of the bikes that keep 'following' me home. Current garage:
2001 Daytona 955i, 2 yes two, 2003 Sprint 955i STs (spouse rides one), 2016 Speed Triple, 2001 Kawasaki ZRX 1200R

That's what I thought after saw that big opening at left side of the picture. Seems lot of Ducati has similar problem. Some even use some sort of plate or tape to cover those hole. But I didn't saw anyone doing that for Triumph. Or maybe I missed something?

I use Honda Moly 60 that's normally for spline drive shaft. Cause Ducati use it for eccentric as their grease B.

Thanks for suggestions.
But isn't it too hot to mount it under a plastic tray?

I used some aluminum spacers I had kicking around, no problem with heat.

With sh775aa fitted and 4gaug starter wires upgrade.
The ST now take 3 seconds to fire up at first cold start, without the need to prime fuel pump 3 times before start. And instantly fire up when push start button when warm. 14.3V at idle, and 14.8V above 1500 rpm.

So we went for a 50 miles back roads ride this morning. She revs wonderful through every corner, and I kind of like the rumbling sound from exhaust when you let go off the throttle. Mirrors, well let's not get there.

This forum provide so many great information about Triumph. Thank you all for your help.
Will stick around to find more detail to fine tune her.
Not show room condition yet. But for now, we are happy.
