    hi there !
    I'm going to buy a speed but I have to say that I don't really like a lot the headlight, instead I've seen the new Street RS and I think that that headlight would suit really cool on a speed.

    As far as I could see on pictures, looks that it will fit, but I haven't seen in person.

    Do you thing that would be possible ?

    I've made a photo montage and I think that its really nice

    and the original.

    It's probably doable - if you've got the money! Certainly on older models lights and flyscreen are interchangeable. I've got a 2015 model and gone the other way, going back to round headlights but with a modern led twist. (see avatar) I needed to make a minor wiring change to enable dlr's only, but you probably don't even need to do that. On older models the support bracket for Street sits lower than Speed (but still interchangeable), don't know if that's still the case.

    I bought the earlier model for the preferred styling of the bike. But I am a bit jealous of the extra power the newer motors have!!

    The double round headlights with LED rings are terrific. I like that very much!

    My daughter would say, “that’s sick!” or something like that which means it’s good :grinning:

    also much prefer the 2020 street lights.
    although i assumed the 2021 speed would probably have that style anyway

    Thanks - "Fill your boots" linked here....
    I had initially looked at using a couple of round Triumph LED lights as first fitted to the bobber and more recently to the current Rocket3, soon changed my mind after I priced them up!!
    I still used Triumph back shells and mounting bar (shorter than what's used with the Dame Edna's), the 5.75" LED light units I fitted are from China at a much reduced price but seem to be quite good quality, even the DRL rings are quite bright and seem to get me noticed, dip and main beam are definitly brighter than standard and a good beam pattern (although I rarely ride at night).
    I've had them for a few years now, recently noticed you can even get them now with the option to switch the DRL rings to amber, makes me think with a bit of electricary you could get them to serve as indicators too, although I'm not sure if that might look a bit too chavvy. :D

    hi again.
    here you can also see some videos
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1PYZ3rsP8oqFiN4WTNi1OI6jDxwfQaBxd

    by the way I have received a mail

    "“KIT will do Street 2020 in Speed RS 2018-2020 All this costs € 713.50 Includes optics, mounting kit, electrical installation, screws and mounting instructions. Remember that we will need you to send your section of electrical installation in order to make the modifications and prepare it so that the original optics can be reassembled in a plug & play plan ...! If you make a pack of several I can give you a discount with the optics ... Which is what money is worth ... Remember that the kit is tested only for speed triple 2018-2020. I guess 2016-2017 is the same, but we haven't confirmed it. "

    This modification interests me a lot!

    Do you think I can order from my dealer in France?

    If I understand correctly, there are just 3 pieces to order. The optics / "X-shaped" piece of metal / one piece of plastic support?
    What about the electric cables?

    Are these parts original or for adaptation?

    Thank you very much !

    Good morning all !

    Do you know the Triumph part number to make the modification?

    I can not find the two black metal parts in the shape of "Y" and the power cable of the headlight :(

    Hi ! Thanks !

    okay ! These are pieces created by Triumph Girona, I didn't know

    You only needed the "Y" part, 2 cables
    That's all ?
    You did not need the rubber part (triangular shape)?

    I'm definitely keen on this swap. It's the 1 thing I don't really like on the 2018 speed rs
