    Looks like you got a bargin with the yellow one, they are actually fantastic handling bikes and it was a shame that they got such bad press about the early fuelling issues. I was also very surprised how comftable they are to ride for a 600 sports bike.

    The Track bike looks like it would be loads of fun as well.

    Cheers

    Steve

    Thanks Steve

    To be fair the fueling low down from stock even on my 2004 yellow one isn't great
    What improves it was a new can and K&N and them a full rolling road tune, it's much improved however it has had a effect on fuel consumption, but that not really a major issue

    It's a lot less snatchy now

    They are also the last Hinckley model to be made in the UK. as anything after could be made in Thailand.

    I had a yellow one of those brand new in 2002 I think when they were first released. Loved it and despite ribbing from my jap sports bike friends taught them a thing or two about riding quick with it!

    Hi,
    New to the forum, I have bought a TT 600 2000 model, I can find anywhere on the net what do handlebar risers for the TT 6oo, does anyone know where I can get them, also the lowering suspension kits are these suitable for the TT 600 or do they impair the handling,

    What's your issue with the grips height? For an early supersports the grips are high in comparison with newer bikes. Wrist and/or shoulder aches?

    Thanks for the reply. Its purely the riding position, I love the bike just trying to make it a bit more upright.

    Should'a bought a Bandit, LOL.
    I had a TT in 2003, for around a year, and not having had a sports style before it was a bit alien I recall. Now on my second one, and using it for commuting mostly, yes I see where your coming from. Tend to be upright a fair bit of the time. Once tucked in I find I rest my elbows on my knees a lot. Reminds me I must get a new tank protector!
    Good luck with your search, I've not looked for risers personally so can't help I'm afraid.

    Cheers for the reply, I do have bikes I can sit upright on and was hoping there was risers for the handlebars, spinal injury prevents being tucked in though, I like the triumph, lovely bike I just wont have to go long distances,
    Thanks

    I used to race one in Thundersport street fighter class, great bikes I have a modded rear shock on eBay finishing today,. Item number 303074360731
    It's only up to £20 at the moment!!!
    Also got some EBC prolite discs which are a bit fatter than standard and seemed to help improve the spongy front brake.Also some GB Moto rear sets but they were for my Daytona 650 so not sure if the mountings are the same.

    Ive just got myself a TT600! Its not as pretty as yours, a few marks but m not really that bothered by that.

    Mines had the remap done by Triumph and its such a joy to ride with the handling and oh boy, the brakes!!!

    Im loving it after the B12, which was fun but not really that inspiring to ride.
