Just took the SS for a quick potter
Where did you get the shocks? I wonder if they have them long enough to fit a Speed Twin?
I bought K-tech, but they’re a bit stiff, and no compression adjustment. Unfortunately, the Speed Twin shocks are so long that the choices are limited.I purchased them locally. I have a friend who has a Speed twin and couldn't find Fox shocks for his bike. He ended up going with Ohlins.
many reservoir shocks are just for looks as Bitubo makes quality DeCarbon shocks aka internal reservoir-separating piston. British Racer carries them for Triumphs at less than the Fox brand. i had Bitubo WME's on my 2012 bonnie + just got a ship notice for them for my T120, various lengths + springs weights + colors are available from them
Looks good, and clean also, more than my poor Thruxton does after riding in the floods yesterdayYes. I had the engine done first, then thought the wheels would look good in that colour too.
