    Happy with my new LED ride lights and Goldie shortie levers. Just waiting on Triumph teardrop mirrors

    Couple more things I want to do to my Speed Twin, but these were top of the list. Installed shorty black Pazzo levers, love the look and feel. Also just finished relocating the license plate to the swing arm, really cleans up the look. Had to slightly modify the bracket arm, and rewire the license plate light from the wiring harness down to the new location. Works like a charm!!

    That licence plate holder looks great. I wish we could get away with such a neat install here in the UK.
    Unfortunately we have to have a billboard sized plate :p

    Thank you! Yeah I’ve never understood why they make you have such large license plates over there...

    The teardrop mirrors arrived from WoT. Nicely packaged and work a treat

    Love my LED lights, but had nowhere to mount them but the indicators, so purchased some engine bars.
    They make a huge difference to night riding for light coverage and visibility during the day.

    Fitted some small bar risers for a much more relaxed ride height (5’11”/ 180cm).

    Installed new mufflers (from Cone Engineering) on the beast yesterday, and freaking love them!! So much cleaner looking, and now sounds like it should! Deeper and louder. Next week...booster plug!!

    Updated my horn with a decent air horn, 300db, and fitted in the space left by catalytic converters removal.

    Yes, 8 multicolour strips under tank, seat and side covers.
    I put on for safety before I added the day lights.
    They have a remote with on, flash and pulse settings and 15 colours. :cool: Purchased off Wish

    So, update on the above mentioned booster plug. Absolute garbage, DO NOT waste your money. It actually made my bike run worse. I don’t know how anyone has left positive reviews on this thing, let alone so many positive reviews. Maybe it works on other bikes, but I can tell you on the Speed Twin it certainly does not!!

    I must say I found the same when I fitted one to my Street Cup. I was sceptical to start with as there were conflicting reviews, but decided to try it out for myself. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

    I fitted it when the weather was cold and at first it seemed ok, the bike appeared to pull better from low revs. But as the weather warmed up the bike started to run rough. The final straw was when I went for a ride out with a mate following me and he said he could smell unburnt fuel. So of it came, luckily it was an easy mod and only took a couple of mins to remove. May be ok if you are revving the nuts off the bike but causes it to run way too rich when bumbling around English country roads.

    Pity it didn't work but at least I know for sure now. Some of these things are worth a try at least. The throttle spacers were a success :).
