Nicely done.
Will you powder coat the throttle body top with the gold ring as well ?

It's a stock Triumph seat. The standard one for the T120 is brown and I didn't like the black/brown combo. You can option a black seat but it has white piping around the edge which I also wasn't keen on. Thankfully my dealer switched it for the one that comes on the T100 free of charge :smile2:

It's the job I'm about to embark on!

This looks great.

How do you find those tyres?

I'm thinking of changing mine over to some of these.

Do they effect the handling much on the motorway?

** UPDATE **

I finally got round to painting the throttle body black. Absolutely love the result – this is how it should leave the factory in my opinion.
Also has another change of tyres. The TKC's were a bit too "Mad Max" for my liking so I've changed to a set of Heidenau K60's. Far prefer the look and the ride is somewhat better too.

Thank you!

They're only held on with some pretty strong thread lock. Just give them a good turn anti-clockwise and they'll unscrew.
If you're really having trouble try heading them with a hair dryer to soften the adhesive. Mind you, I did have to give them a really strong twist initially!

Then just prime and spray them :grin2:

Did you remove the throttle bodies to paint them?
If so, can you give me details?

Are you still liking the Heidenaus?

Thanks, the bike looks amazing!

Looks sharp! What was required in order to retrofit the NRC tail tidy to the T120? I've heard there are some compatibility issues?
The only reason the NRC tidy doesn’t fit a stock T120 is the seat. It drops down too low at the back so it covers/fouls on a light when fitted. Crafton make a seat which has a rear lip that’s designed to not drop so far down ??

That is great to know, thank you! How's the comfort on that Crafton seat compared to stock? I've had my eye on it for a while cause they look so slick, especially with the tail tidy, but I need more satisfied ass reviews to convince me to pull the trigger haha. Comfy enough for a multi-hour trek? ?

In terms of comfort, it’s on par with the stock seat. However, because of the bench design you can adjust where your bum rests ?
