Hello!

Hi there,

I purchased an immaculate T509 in roulette green a couple of years ago! fantastic bike!

and cheap insurance too!!

looking to make the bike more standard there are a few things like aftermarket (gillies) pegs rubbing on exhaust, and there is / was an unnecessary steering damper fitted.

Welcome to the forum!

Those green T509's were absolutely beautiful! Shortly after I bought my first Triumph, a 1998 Daytona 1200, in 1999 I spied a green Speed Triple at the dealership. I should have known then I would end up owning a Speed Triple.

Best of luck finding the bits you need, and please post photos of your T509.

Cheers!

Tom, if you close your eyes going through Gosport, IN you will miss it.

Very nice bike, I'm still a big fan of those twin round headlights.
