Speed Twin parts and mods
 
The new Speed Twin is great, I love mine! But is not perfect. So letís all figure out what we need to mod and what we can mod already.

So far, I have seen that TEC Bike Parts has some stuff already. https://shop.tecbikeparts.com/t/new-models

Hepco & Becker have a hard luggage system for pre-order https://www.hepco-shop.de/en/meinbik...peed-twin-2019

And one of us has dropped their bike off with Corbin to get a seat done. https://youtu.be/ob9iIyGCljE

What do the Speed twin owners need/want? What do you need to pull the trigger if you are waiting?

I think the first thing I’ll do is decat the bike. George seems to believe that a decat is better then changing the pipes, and the weight loss is nice as well. I know that more weight can be lost by changing the pipes but they’re so damn expensive.

I'm not going to mess with the exhaust, it sounds just fine to me on standard pipes with cat. I fitted a Dart screen, pulled off the ghastly yellow reflectors from the fork legs, tidied the tail and added auxiliary power socket. 148 miles covered so far and will be out all day tomorrow.

Iím more interested in dropping the weight. Between that and potentially new silencers that could be 15 pounds right there. Itíll give me breathing room to get fat.

I also want those adjustable pegs from TEC. I havenít ridden the bike yet so I might not need them, but I like flexibility and itíll give me something to tinker with.

On the fence about the tail tidy. Do you have pictures? I had a tail tidy on my ST and the slightest bit of rain left me with a jacket and seat covered in grime.

I wanted the v&h pipes. But the stock system is growing on me. I burned my cover onto my headers so a full system could interest me but thatís a much lower priority.

Iím also on the fence on a tail tidy. Donít wanna spend money on it nor do I wanna saw through the stock mount.

I need a new seat though, the stock one is the big negative about the bike. If someone got the Triumph bench seat Iíd love to know if itís better. But mostly Iím waiting for Corbin.

Dart marlin flyscreen, stand bobbins are also on the table.

Luggage would be nice. H&B ones are so expensive, though.

What I have done so far is the TPMS system and machined brake res. I have the Oxford 1 liter tank bag for my gate pass (itís the old one and the phone pouch is too small for my iPhone.). And two ram mounts. One for my phone and one for my go pro.

Any pic of the dart screen on the bike? Presumably you had no issue removing reflectors ( no marks left on forks?)

Not much out there yet. I don't have one yet and am still undecided between it and the Thruxton. I would definitely want a 2-1 system. Tec has one out but I am not crazy how it goes underneath the bike, sounds good though. I am still wondering if the Termi Street Twin pipe would fit, I know the Scrambler exhaust and Zard shorty 2-1 fit the Thruxton so the question would be the distance on the passenger peg mounts. Can someone measure the passenger peg straight to the middle frame exhaust mount?

Tec 2-1

Sorry BB, I have no idea how to put up pictures, my computer has no bluetooth for transfer from my mobile. reflectors just pull of, then soften the residue with white spirit and rub with a dry cloth until all is gone. No marks left. If you are on Facebook, I can send pics via messenger.............

Try emailing the pictures to yourself, then downloading them to your computer. From there you can post them straight to the board using the advanced settings on the message board.
