These have been wildly popular discussion topics on other automotive forums I visit.

So go ahead and share what you’ve done with your Trident recently.

Installed a new part? Went for a ride? Just gave it a wash and wanted to take and share pictures?

To get started, I installed my Givi tank bag and a Racetorx gear shifter stabilizer. I haven’t had a chance to test them out on the road yet, but installation was simple on them both.

I'm planning on getting that gear shift support. How long did it take for the shipping?

After fitting radiator cover and fender extender (see other thread for photo)
and having completed its first service last week, I decided a 70 mile dash round the worcs/Hereford roads to see what she could do, halfway round I noticed the tacho flashing at 6k rpm, so I'm guessing I'm still running in!!
No issues with the bike so far, I'm really enjoying this experience so far 👍😊

My dealer did not change the gear shift indicator setting to Default after first service either; you should be able to do so yourself in the Display Setup menu.

Ordered on the 6th, delivered 12th. Not bad from UK to USA. I did not ever receive shipping confirmation via email. Be aware you will have to sign for it

Thanks for that info. Let us know the verdict once you get a change to test it out. I'm really curious if there is a noticeable difference with the shifts.

Continued breaking it in in 105 degree heat. Hit 300 miles and noticed the RPM's don't blink now till it hits 5k.

I'm definitely interested in hearing about the gear shift support.
I hate to say it, but it may be a bit before I get a proper test ride of the support. This is basically my “winter storage” time of the year, with temps over 100F even at midnight

Yes it's definitely a running in thing, I've done 700 miles and it's still flashing at 6k revs
but I think you still have to take it easy till about 1k miles

You can switch the Gear Shift Indicator setting from Running In to Default yourself in the Display Setup menu. Not sure if it will automatically change over at 1k.

Took the pillion footrest /mountings off, looks so much better without them, just waiting for the plates to arrive, fitted temporary m8 bolts till they arrive

Installed (then removed) the worlds least practical tailbag (yeah, I know - it's a dodgy Amazon special - just big enough for the disc lock & chain, plus a few other odds items).

Same here. I’m in the Central Valley of Cali. We’re about 5 degrees cooler than you. I absolutely hate it.

Mine should be coming in the mail today. Was there a torque spec on the bolts?
