  1. Street Triple 765
    Excuse me if this was asked on a previous thread. So I haven’t had the pleasure of test driving a Street Triple. Looking for some insight from experience owners. Would you recommend the Street Triple for urban commuting? (NYC riding, with lots of stop and go) If so, would you say it’s...

    So I plan to buy a Street Twin as a first bike and mostly for city commuting(which I think this bike nails) but also want to be able to cruise on the highway in weekends. My main concern is about the bike's highway capabilities. I live in Yerevan, Armenia and in our country highway speed is...

    I've seen a few threads here about different exhausts for the Street Twin. Does anybody have experience with the shorty versions from various companies? I've seen them available from British Customs, Cone, Remus, and Zard. Your thoughts and experience? And others? Thanks!

    I dropped my bike off for the yearly service yesterday and received this picture from the dealer: The only accessory I've fitted on my bike is the OEM Sump Guard which has taken quite a beating thanks to lack of proper roads and a flourish of potholes. It has withstood abuse quite well and...

    Howdy. Been snooping here for a few months but finally decided to share my ride—2019 Triumph Street Twin, "Moneypenny" (because she's a refined british woman and she costs me a lot of moneypennies). I recently put my Chicago apartment in storage and rode to Charleston SC with some camping gear...

    I have a 2019 Street Twin and recently installed a TEC x-pipe. Love the power pop, sound, and heat reduction, but noticing slight clutch slippage due to the increased torque (I'm guessing). I'm looking for stiffer clutch springs that fit but can't seem to find any. Anyone out there know if there...

    Hi ! I'm new here. I am the owner of a 2018 Street twin in Thailand. I didn't get to ride a lot this past year so I am now at 20,000 kms (12,000 miles). I had the first service done at 800kms and the second one a year after at 13,000 kms. In theory the next service would be annual or the 32,000...

    Hey everyone! So I’ve picked up a pair of slash cut (turnout) drag pipes from British Customs to fit on my 2018 Street Twin. Left pipe installed fine - no problems. Gone to fit the left one and it won’t align with the cat or the bracket. Even when I loosen all the bolts on the cat and only...

    I have been looking for some side panels which are not so bulky and are closer to the frame. I also want it to fit with A9600620 - the Vance and Hines 2:1 High level Exhaust. I came across this: Aluminum side panels for Triumph models L.C. - Alo's, which I am not sure it will fit yet - but...

    Today, pulled clutch in to downshift, and a bunch of the warning lights came on and the bike went to idle. It did not shut off. There was no reaction when the throttle was twisted. Now, I was low on fuel, but not empty. I was forced to idle it down the shoulder of the road a couple of miles to a...

    Hey folks: Long time lurker, first time poster.... I was recently out for a ride on my Street Twin when I started having problems downshifting from 2nd to 1st. I would press down on the gearshift lever, and nothing would happen; the lever would just hit its bottom limit and spring back up...

    I've put Heidenau K60 tires on my 2016 Street Twin (with stock alloy 18" wheels), and now the clearance to my front fender is minimal. I think I need a different mudguard bracket. I may try to use the front mudguard bracket off the 2017 Scrambler, which has a 19" front wheel, if that bracket...
  13. Moto Camping
    Hey folks! First post, and first moto camping trip. Quick background: I've been riding for about a year. I have a 2019 Street Twin that I love. I mostly commuted in Chicago on it, but made some day trips to Michigan outside the city. I also rented a Street Twin in SF on a work trip, and rode Hwy...

    Has anyone combined the Crafton Atelier "Greaser Seat" with the NRC tail tidy for a street twin? Curious how they look together or if the seat will be able to cover the tail light at all.

    Hi everyone. I'm doing some mods on my 2017 ST to tidy up the lines (tail tidy, bar end mirrors, new indicators etc). One thing that consistently bugs me is the position of the speedo & how it ruins the lines of the top of the bike. I was tempted to install a side mount by Omega Racer (sorry...

    I’m going to be installing 2” rox risers on my triumph street twin. As I understand it, I’ll need to replace the clutch cable and reroute the brake line. Thinking of having a dealer do the rerouting for me. I understand it requires a little finesse. I’d like to have a backup plan if anything...

    Hi~ I want to have a 2019 ST but there is a little concern about engine heat. I found riders (especially from India ) said 2016 ST was pretty hot when riders stopped in traffic. I wonder how about engine heat on 2019 ST. Because I am in Beijing, the temperature in summer can be around 100 F...
  18. Water Cooled Twins Talk
    Hello all, newbie here! I am expecting a 2019 Street Twin, and am considering getting the British Customs fender elim kit as well as their turn signals for front and rear. Does anyone have any experience with installing all of these parts together, and if so, were you able to do it all with...

    Dear all, So I have read a lot of negative comments about the Triumph cotton waxed panniers for the Street Twin: Not waterproof, not durable, too expensive for their value etc. (do not want to discuss this in this post). However, I can't seem to find a good alternative for them either for my...

    Hey All, I'm working on customizing my Street Twin and came across a beautiful headlight guard from the "Miss Moneypenny" promo build from 2015 ish. I haven't been able to figure out if it was custom or off the shelf somewhere. Could anyone point me to who or where it came from?
