i was planning on taking it further, and may still, but after i calmed down a bit, thought to myself, am i likely to be riding it at the moment? probably not. so is it worth creating a lot of drama just out of principle?

Whether you are going to ride it or not create the drama just to make a Point - I would

my bike is due to be collected for gearbox rebuild/replacement as it has chewed itself to bits!
common problem apparently!



isn't this a Speed RS not a Street RS issue?

Not with the exhaust down there it isn't. You should know that!!!

It might be down there next year though.

Oh I do it would appear Komp didn't ;)

Quote from: Dom1 on September 11, 2020, 07:35:40 amWith all the Rally kit, yes.

I watch racestoplaces on YouTube and Basil bike is based on a KtM690.

That said the cost of changing a 690 and the maintenance intervals puts me off.

I reckon the T7 is the closest to a Dakar rally bike straight out of the box without being as highly strung.

you've just answered your question haven't you LOL get the T7

Quote from: Andy M on September 03, 2020, 09:42:36 pmNo went with the R, 19 model so it has the lcd dash. Figured the only real difference I might notice is the ohlins shock and I preferred the red accents... reminds me of my old 675R daytona

Also slightly more torque in the mid range slightly less top end power, not much in them to be honest.

Quote from: MOzZereLLa on July 23, 2020, 06:58:26 amTriumph are not supplying an official aftermarket exhaust with the 2020 like they did with the earlier models. Something to do with the increase in midrange and Euro5 status of the 2020 engine.

I'm not bothered. OEM can looks OK. It's an expense I really can justify anymore and all the other systems available look awful.

I'll just ride it.

Fair point I did notice the standard can on the 2020 sounded good (to be fair so does the 2017 ) one but I still wanted the Arrow and got the USA with the removeable baffle :). I can see why they aren't offering one due to the tightening emmisions etc.

Evotech tail tidy and rad guard fitted.

No other plans. Most of the aftermarket exhausts look a bit shit. Triple noise is fine with the oem can.

Yes you are right it is still fitted an Arrow to mine though :)

Quote from: Jarse on July 08, 2020, 08:44:08 amAs per Facebook, I'd go Street but I read the RS suspension is rock solid so depending on the roads you ride, other options are available.

just back em off the comfort settings, plus the 2020 rides plusher (?) than the 2017-2109 slightly different suspension tune. Setting the erlier one to comfort brings it to the same. Reviews I've read have the KTM as firmer and harsher than the Street as well.

Street for me just because Triple engine and note, the KTM sounds like a CB500

Just thought I'd update this thread, Sorry PJ but Chris has bought the Focus and it's now sat on the drive at mine  waiting for him to book some driving lessons. In the meantime as he'a put me on his insurance it gets to be my TIP run slag  :azn: .

Cheers Andy - genuine car, drives nice, good price  :azn:

Quote from: Andy M on June 26, 2020, 01:07:34 pmHi mate, Iain has first dibs I'll drop him a line now and check. Hope you well 👍🏻

All good here fella you?

And no worries, I wouldn't try and muscle in! Any chance of the reg of the car? I'm having a nightmare with leasing a new car so considering this as a fallback option.


PJ, looks like my lad Chris will be buying it we are off to see it next Saturday, both on shifts so need the stars to align ;-), if for any reason he doesn't buy it I'll let you know but it's ideal and he can get senisble insurance with me as a named driver so it's really just a once over and to meet Andy before the deal is done.
