This is a real improvement over the 2011 Speed triple I had previously. The transmission is a lot smoother. The lighter wheels decrease rotating mass, and make the bike seem to want to turn in to a curve quicker. This model seems to feel more like the Street Triple, with regard to flickability, than the '11 Speed Triple.

I'm going to have a lot of fun playing with the Ohlins suspension, as soon as I get some information on adjustments!

Take it to a specialist, I tried to sort mine myself, to no avail.
Then took it to a local specialist, who sorted it for me. The difference is amazing. and all for just £80 ($120) worth every penny...:)

You need to get the Sag (Front & rear) set for your weight, until that it done you will be wasting your time.

Welcome to the forum. Please add the Year to your main motorcycle , so if you have questions or mods in the future you don't have to keep telling us its a '13 , we can see it at a glance :)

Was your 11 a round headlight model?

The New wheels do not "seem" to help the bike turn better , they do help the bike turn quicker :)

By the sound of it the revised gearbox should have trickled into all versions of the Speed Triple now , though there is no word on where the VIN Split is for the Normal bikes that get the new box .
