    Has anyone swapped out the stock handlebars of their Speed Twin for another models' handlebars or ones from a third-party seller? If so, how do you like it? Have you noticed any difference in your bikes handling? I like the look of the ones being offered from British Customs, but I haven't seen anything specific to the Speed Twin in the forums.

    Hi will! Wondering if you ended up swapping the bars on your Speed Twin? I’m in the same boat and wondering if I need to be purchasing brake lines as well as a clutch cable. I’m looking at the LSL Superbike bar, so roughly 3/4” taller and wider but much more of a pullback than the stock bar.

    I fitted some higher Rizoma bars to my ST with no other mods.

    I believe someone fitted Scrambler bars to theirs which only required the additional purchase of a T120 clutch cable. One benefit is that the Triumph Scrambler bars come with all the predrilled holes as well as the slots for the heated grips
    Can't find the details though...

    Those subtle red accents placed here and there are pretty sharp. They really make the bike pop without being ostentatious.

    This is great! Thank you! I’ll give it a try with a slighter taller and more pullback bar. Sounds like as long as I don’t go wild with the bar choice I should be ok. And great looking bike! I dig the red bits. And what a garage!!!!!

    Don't call it a garage as i told the town hall it was a porch when i built it a few years back to get it through planning :)
