    I was looking at some of the Mods available for my Speed Triple (Yes, I still have it. Economy sucks, and trade in value sucks worse!) and came across this:

    What do you think of the mods they have made?

    For Comparison, this is my bike (or one identical anyway)

    Comments? Ideas?
     
  2. I like the mirrors and belly pan. Your headlights are better. A gp exhaust would rock.
     

  3. ya know I never like the rear fenders much but yours does look great on there. what about rear grab rails for spice... it'd add to the ass end look I'm sure... I have a set if you'd like to try 'em out for 'styling' and functionality purposes...
    BTW +1 on yours looking better than the one posted as an example above it...
     
  4. Almost any mod is a win in my book. Stock motorcycles belong at the dealers.
    Dare to be different! Make it how you want it. Have fun with it, thats what it is all about right ?

    I like the look of the white triple, though I am a huge fan of anything black too. (well black with a little orange is better) :evil4:

    Unique FTW :mfclap:

    Since you already have a low-mount, light exhaust, the next thing is Ohlins, or Penske rear shock. Along with that get the front resprung and revalved. After that I would throw money at some light forged wheels. If you need your brakes done, get some wave rotors, they work well and look the part.

    These.....are beautiful

    and:

    maybe these.

    If nothing else, I'll be re-springing the front and getting the Ohlins rear. Those Daytona fairings are enticing as well.

    Hehehe. Well, a Duc 998 is on my short list. But that Speed Triple has latched on to me. I <3 her.
     
  15. If I got a speed triple,I would make it pretty similar to the white one. except I would go with a circular headlight.
     
  16. Here's what I think, and you can take it or leave it, but hear me out.

    We should put the motor from your Speed into my Daytona and work out a time share arrangement. Daytona 1050 FTMFW!!!
     
  17. For realz, though:
    Suspension work is always a great place to put your money and get real tangible improvements.
    Light wheels as other have mentioned, too. Visually, I'm a big fan of carbon. Carbon anything you can. I love that belly pan, and a nice exhaust would round it out. Those bar-end mirrors are win.

    My next mods are ASV levers and a double bubble windscreen, then it's power time.

    I can't suggest much. Triples are pretty dern near perfect as it is! :mrgreen:
