Great fender eliminator kit. Needs a little modifying to make the stock license plate light fit properly.

Can you provide a little more detail on the mods/what didn’t fit? I just picked up my new Speed Twin on Thursday and that’s on the short list of mods. I’m also interested in learning if someone makes a small luggage rack for this bike. I want to be able to carry some tools and plug kit.

I just bought a Nelson Rig tail bag for mine... It looks great for this bike, in my opinion. The straps under the seat, make it a little difficult to snap the seat in place, but with a little tweaking you can find The sweet spot and get it to fit.

Which Nelson Rigg model do you have?

Looking at the Nelson Rigg CL-1060-S2 Sport Tail Bag. Looks like a good product that won’t be “too big” sitting on the bike...

The holes for the license plate light doesn't line up , so you would need make the holes bigger if you were to retain the stock light. If you use the light provided in the kit, the fit will be fine.

Just bought this beauty, 2 days ago. It's the most perfectly balanced bike I've ever owned. The throttle is so responsive yet smooth, the ergonomics are perfect for my frame, and the aesthetics are exquisite. It's like Triumph made a bike specifically for me. I love it.

Just got red one Saturday.... love the bike .... but one issue when trying to remove seat it catches on top of fuse box and ends disgorging the spare fuses .... this happened at the dealer , it take much notice until today when I had same issue .... when looking at the underside of the seat part of the moulding fouls the fuse box I’m off back tomorrow, I’ll probably mod the seat moulding myself.... I think Triumph need to be aware of this maybe it’s just mine as the fuse box does not sit deep enough in the recess ..... the bike is brilliant, just such a stupid niggle...

I installed a set of the Vance & Hine slip-ons (after removing the dB killers). Look and sound great.D6F5990B-7EC6-47F3-8A77-E64D425D2A33.jpeg

XLFish which wind screen is this; off the Thruxton? Any buffeting, looks very clean on the bike.

Dart piranha flyscreen for the triumph truxton 1200, a perfect fit. I'll let you know if there is any buffeting after a long ride this weekend if it doesn't rain.
