Just bought an RS...
« on: November 12, 2018, 07:21:40 PM »
...and very excited! Lovely bloke who was selling it, agreed the sale today and will be picking up soon as poss.

So now Im officially (or soon to be) a Street Triple RS owner, are there any pieces of advice to know of or essential mods to do? Its already got the Akra can and a few other parts and looks beautiful as it is so Im not sure I need to do anything to it anyway other than a pair of new boots.

Any tips welcomed.

Congratulations! You're going to love it. It's a very easy bike to ride below 8000 rpm. Go above this and it's an animal. Mine came with the led upgrade,  heated grips, triumph fly screen and tail tidy. I've added an Arrow exhaust (sounds awesome), R&G rad cover,  novo quick charger port and taken the fly screen off as I've found above legal road speeds it was channelling the air straight into the bottom of my helmet (I'm 5'11). I'm about to replace the supercorsa's as I had a few twitchy bum moments yesterday with the wet/ leaves. The rain mode coped well with the wet with these tyres but not with anything else. It just wants to be driven hard. Best bike I ever bought that didn't want to kill me. Have fun buddy.

Congratulations on your new bike, I hope we still get some nice dry days for you to give your bike a blast. Might even see you along the coast or at the lighthouse in the future. Enjoy your new bike.

Thanks for all your welcoming messages. I think heated grips will be something to consider pretty soon, new tyres are sorted so will wait till I collect the bike before deciding on anything else. Maybe a pair of billet bar end mirrors too...?
