    You collect any size or just ones that fit you to use?
    May have an Edwards Valencia large for sale soon.

    I only buy brand new helmets as I use them, can't take the risk of using a defective second-hand helmet. Not saying you didn't take care of your but I'm not willing to take the risk. Thanks anyway :)

    Changed my blinkers to triumph aluminium led, also fitted an evotech tail tidy instead of the topblock I had.

    Also finally had the opportunity to drive it after the first maintenance, they updated the QS and it now works perfectly ! So far so good :)

    Those are some very special bikes for sure, and to have owned them must have been quite a thrill. Congrats on the new Speed RS. I’m looking forward to your opinion after owning the others. This is my second Triumph and think there is something special about them. I’m interested in the decision to change out to a RCS Corsa Corta master cylinder. I know there is one more adjustment over the MCS that comes standard with the bike. I would like to hear your thoughts on that for sure. Enjoy!

    Hi Steve,
    Sorry for the late reply,
    I finally didn't change the master cylinder, installed it on my lady's bike (speedr94). I'm kinda jealous now ahaha, the quality on the speedrs is already good but the RCS is clearly from another league.

    Actually I'm kinda debating selling the RS, the bike is great for sure but I was used to "more power" and imo it misses a few hp when you compare it to the 1290r or tuono. Test drove those two, I'm in love with the tuono but the reliability is clearly a risk for this brand..

    Swap the RCS to the RS. Sell the Lady Bike. Buy a 1290R. Sorted (as we say in Essex).

    tried to fit 19rcs to my 2018 but as the master cylinder is at 90 degrees to the bar (unlike the standard one which is at an angle) the brake lever hits the ride by wire unit on the twist grip.

    I appreciate your thoughts. I had considered the Tuono before purchasing the RS, but reliability kinda put me off. I also consider a fuel gauge a must. Cheers.

    Enjoy your holidays. As far as the new bike, I’m going to guess either a Super Duke R or Tuono :heart_eyes:. Go Tuono.

    Hi Jacques - It's good to hear from you...and don't worry, you're here now.

    I sent you a direct email last October, and have just forwarded another copy.
    For clarity, this was my post that outlined the change to the heat shield for 2018+ bikes.

    Don't hesitate to contact me if you need more info :)
