Speed four rearsets

If anyone is interested, GB Moto makes a rearset for the TT600 and surprise; it fits and works perfectly for a Speed Four. I have them on both of mine and wouldn’t go back to stock. Not sure why the pictures came out rotated, but you get the idea.

There's only a few TT600 parts like that that won't fit a S4. Daytona 600 and 650 rearsets ought to work, too.

It's a squid thing. You wouldn't understand.

Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

I think someone posted that they were looking at these back a few years ago but never said if they got them or posted any pictures. Anyway these are a direct fit and are relatively inexpensive around 235$ US. I did have one issue with a part but they shipped a replacement real quick. The bikes shift so much cleaner now.

Good to know. As I recall, the stock pegs and shifter on a TT600, S4, or D6 all had shift levers connected directly to the spindle. Triumph switched to a linkage with the D650, similar to GB Moto's design. The general consensus among those who swapped to those was that it makes a difference. It's good to see that the same kind of controls are available as aftermarket parts which makes them somewhat more accessible. Plus, they look great in all black like that.

I'm curious. Is the main advantage of these rearsets the gear change linkage or is it additional leg room.

The shift feels a bit nicer, plus you have the choice of using GP/race shift (which was the reason I did it)

For some reason, the linkage makes the bike shift better. It makes no sense that it would do that, but there it is. Plus, if you want GP shift, it's the only way to do it. I had GP shift on my Daytona for a number of years so I wouldn't get all fouled up on the race bike, which was also GP shift. I still sometimes foul up now that the bike is back to standard pattern. Habits are serious business!

Habits certainly are serious business! For me it's so i don't shift the wrong way on the road bike when going on a "spirited ride", brain goes into race-mode and I instinctively click down to go up a gear. It's well and truly ingrained now as there is so much gear shifting when racing a two stroke!
