Rear mudguard Speed Twin/Thruxton 1200

Hi,

Does anyone know for certain whether the standard rear mudguard assembly on the Thruxton 1200 will fit on a Speed Twin?

Having done a bit of research, I find that both bikes share basically the same frame, but that the subframe is different.

Does this mean the rear mudguards are not interchangeable?

Thanks in anticipation.

Paul D.

I agree they look the part but are useless at keeping all the splatter off the back of your jacket and rear of seat. I’ve covered 1300km and every day was fairly wet weather riding. I shortened the tail and moved the plate higher hoping this will help.

I understand the style element of the standard Speed Twin mudguard, but I just don't like it, and particularly like the standard set-up on the Thruxton 1200. I think it looks likely to do a better job of keeping muck off my back than all these tail tidies that seem to be retro fitted.
For that reason, presumably, there are a glut of them on ebay and that's what made me think it would be an ideal switch if everything lined up and it was a straight swap.
I guess I need to see both bikes in the same place or find someone in a showroom somewhere that can compare.

It may not be perfect but you can always make something fit. Suzuki guards on a Yamaha etc

Anyone know if the front mudguard from the T120 would fit the speed twin? My radiator fill up with mud and its a pig to shift...

Just out of interest, are you still using the standard rear mudguard setup, and if so how does that perform with regard to keeping the muck off?

As stated, I get the whole style thing, but if it means the bike and you get covered in muck . . . . .

I contacted Triumph directly to ask the initial question about the rear mudguard interchangeability, but they were unable to answer.

The new Speed Twin is top of my list for next bike, but there are some things you cannot learn from a test ride.
