Just installed the Tec adjustable foot pegs. The amount of adjustment is good and comes in 2 different areas on the pegs. Haven’t ridden on them yet but the quality seems ok. I’ll report back after some time on the road.

I have them. Make sure to adjust your brake pedal and shifter height to match if you drop them or raise them at all. Plenty of adjustability.

Only gripe I kind of have is the brake pedal is so narrow that you have to almost get the inside of your foot on top of the mounting point to hit it. Other than that it's about a 20mm drop which is nice

Good call. Iíve settled on same height as stock just further back for now. Thing I love is I can pull off into a parking lot and adjust them in under 5 minutes if I want to try something different.

Thing I donít love is how the adjustable lever adds a space between the bike and the actual peg. Thatís been throwing me off a bit.

I might try them forward just for the hell of it. Back is nice though because now Iím more towards the middle of my foot instead of the ball. Much more relaxed that way, and if I hit the twisties I can still rest on the ball for more balance if I want

Itíll be ugly. But as an cheaper solution for the seat, I have ordered an Airhawk Dual Sport seat cushion. I will report back in a few days with results.

The other thing Iím thinking about are some tank grips. Like the Stompgrip Rally or Universal grips. The standard triumph bulky rubber triumph ones arenít gonna work with the graphics but Iíd still like some extra grip.

I might get an Airhawk as well. The stock seat is brutal.

I basically ordered it cause I might have a work trip while my spouse needs the car. Iím not sure my rear can handle 5 hours in the stock configuration!

So after 4 adjustments I got the pegs dialed in. Feels great to have a tiny bit more leg room. Money well spent. I still want those beautiful rearsets from Sato Racing but the price is just too steep at the moment. It seems like all of the things I want to do at this point cost around $500 or more. Time to start saving!

I was poking around this thread and checked out the Tec tail tidy...

What I noticed was this:

https://isteam.wsimg.com/ip/e8eb1da0...rs=w:600,h:600


The bike in the picture has the US spec turn signals/stop/taillight, but instead of the cover over the middle light (like I've seen on the US spec bike), it actually has the light.... Anyone have an idea on how I could get that done once I have this bike in my hands?

Actually, those turn signals are smaller than those that come on the US model bikes. Those look more like the Euro spec Thruxton turn signals, which would make sense paired with the Euro spec tail light.

Though if you're looking to convert to the euro spec kit, here are the part numbers:

A9838031 - Front turn signals
A9838043 - Rear turn signals
T2701236 - Taillight
