I bought the 20 litre seat Kriega pack and really thought I had made a mistake as I couldn't work out how to fit it. Didn't want to remove panels or under seat panel. So I spent a week thinking about it and then pushed the straps into place around the frame  using a thin flexible piece of wire. It worked and the bag is brilliant and I just tuck the straps under the seat when not in use.

Any tyre from a well known brand is usually ok. I think RED  :305: on here ran a couple of set a few years ago. If they are a good price I would go for them...make sure you go for the lighter duty ones if they come in a heavy weight versions, more suitable on a fat Speed

Thanks all, very good info all round.

I think I was in the same mindset as you Mike.  I didnt check before and once the feeling that the speedo is reading wrongs sets in only the worst possible outcome is the logical explanation. 

Will leave as is and trust the speedo, and leave the rear wheel size well enough alone :001:

Street Triples with ABS read the speed from the rear wheel speed sensor. Sprocket changes will NOT affect the read speed and it’ll remain correct whatever sprocket ratio you choose.

The only way you’ll put the speedo out is if you change the rear tyre to a different aspect ratio. So if you’re an idiot :008: and put a 190 on a standard rim make sure you calculate the crown height to take this into account otherwise your speedo won’t read correctly and you’ll probably get an ABS warning light which will automatically disable it.

Of course for track use none of this matters but for God’s sake get a wider rim to accommodate it and rework the chassis geometry otherwise you’re wrecking the handling and safety for nothing other than showing off to your mates by ‘proving’ you need a wider tyre cause you’re the next budget GP star.
:430:, a bit of a tangent but still somewhat relevant

As long as it's the Triumph one it's plug and play no updates needed. BTW the ones from the 675 also work fine but the shift rod length is slightly different.

Thanks, that's good to know. :821:

Street Triple - General Discussion / Quick Shifter question
« Last post by chunkeymoneky026 on Yesterday at 04:27:38 PM »
So already I want to add a quick shifter to my 765r!  I had one on my Yam MT09 and even though it's kind of childish and not at all needed, I do love just banging up the gears!  If I bought the part online do I need my dealer to activate any software or is it literally plug and play? My MT09 came from factory with one but I know if you added it on an earlier model it had to be "activated" by a Yam dealer.

thanks

I know they have been superceded by the GT but are they any good?

Really need something to see me through the next 5k miles before I change the bike.

thanks

Hi

After a few years without a bike, I recently bought the new Street Triple RS.  Covered the first 600 miles over the last few weeks.  Bit of a change for me as I've never ridden a naked.  My previous 3 bikes were Fireblades and this time I wanted something with a more comfortable riding position and power that was usable on the roads.

Hey JB!  Hello, good morning and a very warm  :401: to the net's best for all things Street Triple!

Hope by now that you're fully used to - and still enjoying - riding "naked"!   Sorry, "A naked"!   :007:

I'd guess you'll miss the outright power blitz presented to you by the 'Blades but the trade off is likely to be in the lightness and ease with which the ST can be hustled so, hopefully, you won't be losing out on the overall riding pleasure experience ...... especially once the running in period is done.   :001:

We will, of course, need to see some pictures of your new toy in its home setting!  Meantime, stay safe and enjoy!!

Regards,

Adie
