First topic message reminder :

So I signed up to the Bathurst run via Facebook and figured I should come and check out where the event originated from and see who else will be on the ride Smile

Howdy all cheers

Nice list of mods, look forward to seeing it in the flesh.

Did you just replace the globes with HID or did you change the high beam/low beam setup? The seperate high beam headlight annoys me, looks stupid with only one light one.

I've been considering crash knobs and the Gel Seat so will be good to see what they look like/feel like on your bike.

What colour did you get them painted? I'm thinking of gold for mine (either painted or the giles rearsets) with carbon fibre heel protectors. Maybe gold with a black lever or black with a gold lever.

Getting them painted black

RidersDiscount via the 675Net forums can do me the Gilles shipped to Aus for US$460 and if I get those I am just thinking of getting them black too. I have slowly been replacing everything that was silver on the bike. Removed the rear pegs the other day as I have the seat cowl and no intentions of having a pillion any time soon

The seat cowl/no rear pegs makes the bike look so much better. As does a fender elim and a integrated taillight.

I have keep tossing up between replacing the sliver bits with black or gold which is part of the reason I haven't replaced a few parts like the break/clutch levers and rearsets.

The Jardine comes with a FE as you need to remove the heat shield to fit it and it has it's own mounting bracket which doesnt support the fender mount. I have a set of small short stem LEDs that aren't on the bike in these pics, they will mount in the holes that used to support the heat shield which you can see in the first pic just to the left of the wiring harness.

I considered the integrated taillight but they don't seem to be very visible during the daytime which is what held me back from getting one

Ahh Another Triumph, another rider with taste!

Welcome to the madhouse, A Triumph only ride might be the go once Scottie gets his bike back.

Can vouch for Madss.com giving great prices, actually the cheapest around..Ive got loads of stuff of them.

Welcome mate!

Maybe we should consider renaming the site from NSW Riders Forum to NSW Triumph Rider Forum.

As it seems to me these Triumph riders are coming out of the woodwork and they seem to be the ones who are posting the most and I can't batten down the hatches anymore and take them all on Razz.

My love of the trumpy is born purely out of ignorance, apart from the Hyosung GT650 I learned to ride on, the D675 is the only bike I've owned. Bought it about 2 months ago now after getting off my Ps and I wouldn't have it any other way Very Happy

I should also add that it's one sexy bike and the sound of a triple can't be beaten Wink

Don't worry CG I've got your back. The funny thing is an argument was used not that long ago that Trumpys are special because there isn't as many of them, unlike the "Jap Crap" bikes. Now the tables have turned, at least on this forum / group and we are the ones riding more exclusive bikes that all those pommy ones!
