Pretty easy to fit - comes with handlebar mount and wiring to run direct to battery.
NB unplug it when not in use for a few days as it draws a small current even when not active
Thanks for linking this. What a great little item. Definitely on my Christmas list for this year.

Well... I'm either two days, or nine days from purchasing a new Speed Twin. Just the basic black model to go with my all white car. I'm heading up for a test ride early on Saturday. I'm 90% sure I'm going to love it. I've been thinking of a new Triumph for a few years. I liked the smaller Speed Cup and the Thruxton S models. But it never sat well in my stomach... like a gut feeling. When I saw the teasers for the Speed Twin, I waited and waited. And now that I see them, I really like them. I just want to get a firm price. They'll cut $750 off the top because the only black model they have is a demo model with 170 miles on it. So that seems like a quick win. We're working out details over the phone. But I'm pretty much ready to pay as soon as I enjoy that test ride.

But here's to hoping to join the Triumph family. I'll definitely keep you posted.

^ It’s a great bike for sure. Doesn’t need much work if you’ll only be riding in short bursts. Fun engine, good breaks, comfy ergonomics. Think this ones a keeper.

Seems like a good deal. I worked hard on a demo black one as well as had them down $500, then I decided to go with a new 2020 silver and black for $100 less than sticker. I pick it up this Saturday as well. Enjoy the ride.

So nobody here uses that dealer tool.... m'kay. I think I would have lost money had I bet someone here did... lol.

Well... how about a triple tree/headlift stand? And for a swingarm stand, if my memory serves correctly the bobbins need to be 8mm, yeah?

8 mm on the rear bobbins yep. I just got 2 long (3" I think) M8 bolts at the hardware store and use them when I need them. Less than a buck.

I have the dealer tool. Never got it to work with my old computer. Now I no longer have a portable so itís on the shelf collecting dust.

I use rear stand and bobbins with headstock stand on the front
It’s all very sturdy when it’s up.

installed Triumph grab rail PN A9758311 for Thruxton on my speed twin-- had to move the turn signals.
First i moved them on brackets behind the shocks and didn't like that
I made some brackets and move them to original position just back maybe 3 inches
Im fine with that for now. I might add Rizoma I Ride S smaller turn sigs front and back down the road
Either way--I like having a grab bar and it bolts onto existing holes on speed twin
