Brand new here so not sure if there's already a thread or not for this. Apologies if so.

Does anyone know where I can find a Felder eliminator for the speed twin 2020?

Cheers.

If by "Fender eliminator" you mean "tail tidy" ...I went with Tec Parts. There's several other available from other manufacturers but they're all more or less the same. It's like comparing apples to apples. Tec makes about the cheapest, most straightforward one.

Thanks for reply. I mean a kit that actually removes rear mudguard and blanks off hole left when you do. I know you can get them for the street twin but can't find anything for the speed.

I've seen those made for Thruxton Rs too. Doubtful but perhaps those will work for Speed Twins.

BAAK makes something that interfaces both Thruxtons and Speedies. Their language is a bit confusing but maybe this will work, even if it takes some shop modification.

Buy a couple that are close and modify, spray paint after cutting and bending. I couldn't find exactly what I wanted to do on my Thruxton so I bought a few components and cut them up. Ended up with exactly what I wanted. Take a chance and have fun.

Like the idea if only it wasn't an option that may not work but will cost a lot.

I did end up paying a bit extra to marry a license plate holder and cutting off the built in one that didn’t work on the tidy kit. LoL. You might not even need to pay extra at all, perhaps it’ll take just cutting stuff to allow it to fit or perhaps just drilling extra holes or larger holes. What does the back frame area under your seat look like? Can you take pictures with some dimensions?

At the end of the day what's "a lot" though? I can't see a project like this going over a couple hundred bucks or so. Totally worth it if that's the look you really want, and it would definitely set you apart from the Speed Twin crowd. The bragging rights alone would justify the endeavor.

I'd fish around with some custom-end Triumph shops for their take on feasibility and go for it.

I thought the same. Apparently not though.
What changed? This was a very recent change from what I thought. Ask a vendor like Motone if you have not already. It would seem odd that they would change the frame in that area for two motorcycles that should be based on a similar configuration. I’m guessing it’s close enough to modify at any rate. If a third party makes a fender that is the same on both then an eliminator kit should work on both.

I’m not sure what is supposed to have changed between the street twin and the change to speed twin. I thought the name change was to reduce confusion with the triples.

I've spoken with motone and others. They aren't compatible. Without seeing why it's hard to judge how or if it could be modified.

Next time you take your seat off, take pictures of the frame under and looking at different angles how the fender is attached. Just about anything can be modified, it’s just is it worth it.

Thinking a may have a road trip to motone Newport and see if I can persuade them to let me see how the street twin version fits.
