Those look exactly like what I have on my Canadian model. I believe they're the LED upgrade in the Accessories section of the Triumph website.

FOR SALE: 2019 Speed Twin Silver Ice and Storm Grey

Other bike: 2018 Suzuki GSX-S1000 - keeping this one.

Levers have been good for me so far. I want those preload adjusters as well. Not available in the US store. I need something to settle the suspension down though. Itís beating the crap outa me at this point.

Iíll give the fork adjusters a month or two if itís not what Iím looking for Iíll drop in the progressive springs. Iím only looking for a subtle change as the stock set up although a tad firm is great when youíre pushing on ( on decent roads ).
The roads around me are rough enough in parts.

Yes the suspension is finely tuned. It makes me want to do a track day but theyíre kind of rare in these parts as far as I can tell.

Well hereís some even worse news on the storage front. The HB top box rack for the speed twin wonít fit with the stock US tail lights. So not only is it very expensive, but I have to buy things to mess with lights, unacceptable! Anyone find any other hard mount options?

Looking to install a Tail Tidy next. Any recommendations? Does anyone know what bar risers will fit the Speed Twin (looking at SW Motech 1 1/8 risers)?
How well is the MRA Windscreen, in terms of wind protection at higher speeds?

Really interesting that the Speed talk has basically replaced all the Street talk on this forum. Guess a lot of folks upgraded to Speeds or Thruxtons.

Not great. Are you talking 80,90,100mph? No need to answer........youíre going to get plenty wind with or without the screen. I like the screen cause it keeps the clocks clean but Iím not keeping it on the bike because it does a great job of eradicating the wind, it just moves it a bit.
