  1. Maintenance & Workshop Talk
    Hi, I was thinking about spray painting the metallic engine covers of my thruxton R (pic below) Is this a good idea? I’d rather not spend lots of money on something I might be able to do myself. I’m not a professional spray painter in any way, but have some experience. Which products should I...
  2. Water Cooled Twins Technical Talk
    I'm wondering if anyone knows if a top yoke from a Speed Triple can be adapted to a Thruxton R. Top clamp diameter on both is 52 mm, but there are probably other issues. If someone had both in their garage I would be interested to know their observations.

    So I managed to pickup my brand new thruxton r today and really like the bike so far (coming from from a gixxer :-))! However obviously as it being a new bike I'm still "breaking it in". On the way back from the dealership however I noticed the odometer isnt working correctly. The journey back...

    Took off my seat yesterday, and a big connector was unconnected. As I remember it, there were two0, and the upper one (towards front of bike) was unattached. What am i looking at?

    Hi everyone, I'm back on a Triumph after a brief stint with a Ducati Monster. So glad to have stumbled upon the Garage Company and Motorcycle Museum in Inglewood CA which re-ignited my passion for Triumph motorcycles. There's nothing like them! Currently, I'm customizing my Triumph Thruxton...

    Hi, I have ridden Triumphs all of this century and currently own only a Meriden Trident after selling the second of two Sprint RS models I ran until last year. Big mistake! I then bought a Ya*a*a which I didn't get along with at all and am therefore looking to buy another Triumph to match all...

    Time to start planning to be somewhere else! Your forum helps me learn about other places I might like to see - and what bike to see them on .... I had the pleasure of riding a 1200 Thruxton the other day. Still have a grin on my face thinking about it. Reminiscent of my Ossa 250 Wildfire...
  8. The Welcome Center
    Hi all, Here's the obligatory "new guy" post. Long-time-reader-first-time-poster. All of that... I've had my Thruxton R since the launch and shortly after that, I sold my T-100. Happy to be here and looking forward to giving any advice that I can. But, let's be real... I'll probably be getting...
  9. Water Cooled Twins Talk
    Hello, new Thruxton R owner, just picked up a 2017 this month. I'm looking to upgrade the exhaust. I know it's a very subjective topic but I kinda like the sound of this exhaust. Thoughts?
  10. The Welcome Center
    Hello everyone! I just wanted to drop in and say hello! I'm super excited because I just purchased my new Thruxton R today. It's a 2017 fresh from the crate. Part of the PDI will include recall fix for the stalling issue. I hope to meet some cool Triumph owners here. I'm located in Union...

    Hi Guys, Just wanted to share a recent incident with my Thruxton R which is now resolved. Issue : The Malfunction Indicator Light came on while riding (odo 3500). No limp home mode, accel/decel seemed fine. Went home and pulled the code from the speedometer display (-2 ps15). Also noticed...

    Hi all, I'm looking to buy a new motorcycle in Mars/April and the one that has caught my attention the most is the Thruxton R. Since I'm a tall rider (6'4 and 34 inseam) I'm a bit worried that I might be to tall for this bike. I haven't had a chance to sit or test ride one yet. So is there...
