mnbrennan's STR
on: January 01, 2020, 10:00:07 PM
I passed my full motorcycle test in November - after using a Suzuki GSX-S125 for a couple of months on the CBT. The day of passing my test I went to pick up a Street Triple R that I had a deposit on for a few weeks, completely standard with 19k miles on it.

The day I picked her up:



So far I've done the following to the bike:
    Fitted Arrow Cans and map
    Replaced brake and clutch levers with ASV
    Carbon rear hugger
    Shifting Controll Quickshifter
    R&G Tail Tidy
    Bar end mirrors

I absolutely love this bike! The map has made a huge difference to how the bike runs, and the quickshifter is great fun. Coming to this from a 125 has been a revelation and I really enjoy riding the bike (even if it is cold)

As it is now:






It does need some more love and attention. I really like having clean kit, and as this has a few miles it needs a general clean up and some replacement parts. So my plan is to do this over the winter now that the really rubbish weather is going to set in.

Things to do are:
    Replace top fairing due to stone chips (new bought)
    Replace front mudguard due to stone chips
    Replace belly pan due to general condition (new bought)
    Remove tank pads, polish tank and fit new pads (although I may get it resprayed)
    Recondition the radiator (flaking powdercoat)
    General clean up of everything else, replacing corroded items as I go

Looking forward to getting stuck in!

Hi

Happy New year , congrats with the passed test and a lot of good fun with the street triple.
It looks to me a very nice bike on the pictures.

If I read what you are planning to do and renew, You will get an almost new showroom condition bike.
Drive it a lot, get used to it, it is a wonderfull machine.

Thanks gvy

I only managed a clean today but it's in generally clean condition.

The other picture is my other pride and joy that I've probably invested hundreds of hours and many ús in
