Additions to my 2014 TTSE
« on: April 27, 2015, 07:35:46 pm »
Hey everybody:

For anyone interested here are a few additions/improvements I've made to my 2014 TTSE:

1. Hyperlites on the rear as taillight addition and mostly additional brake lights-set up to flash continuously as long as brake applied-VERY noticeable. 1 set of 16 LED's on either side of license plate.

2. Osram Silverstar 2.0 headlight bulbs to replace OEM-much brighter low cost, blinded tech when he looked at them side-by-side with OEM :001:

3. Wolo Disc Low Tone horn connected in parallel to existing OEM horn-no relay needed no extra current draw and MUCH louder and more annoying-very low cost improvement.

4. R&G Radiator guard and Down Pipe guard added-nice clean look and protection for expensive components.

5. Triumph front fender extension/mud flap-keeps grime/water off of front of bike and helps with keeping feet drier.

6. Paint protection kit from Triumph plus installer added 3M film to headlight for protection-nice clean install and protection from rocks, sandblasting(AZ rider), etc.

Thinking of crash guards but not for $600-700 :009: waiting for some competition to lower the price. $500 deductible comp/collision insurance is cheaper.

I'm sure I'll think of something else-does it ever stop? :047:

Ride safe(and fast)

Dirk

No.... It never really stops..... We love them to bits but there is always something that could be worked on to make them even better! :821:

Lots of improvements for sure.  Will be interested in seeing how long the Wolo lasts.  I had the Wolo Bad Boy.  Took half a day to remove parts of fairing, install and re-install fairing.  The Wolo failed in the first rainstorm despite having greater protection than the stock horn.  Stock horn is still functioning fine.  Just not loud enough. Going to install a pair of FIAMMs when I get time.

Yes I have seen that concern with the Wolo horn-mine is installed on the right side as high on the frame as possible right by the upper right side of the vented area, oriented to the right  not facing forward like the stock horn. Hopefully a little better shielded there-and fortunately it doesn't rain much in AZ :001:

Oh and I forgot-Grab On grips which installed very easily with the hair spray technique. Mostly to protect the expensive heated grips but increases grip diameter slightly which is more comfortable, and reduces some of the high-freq vibrations I feel in higher RPM's especially with aggressive cornering in lower gears.

More to come....

I have also added a LED strip to the rear to enhance tail/brake light.

Front and rear fender extensions.

Power Bronze Hugger.

Fiamm Highway Blaster horns

An additional set of mirrors to the mounts that were on the handlebars.

Comfort seat and an Air Hawk R cushion.

Two small zippered pouches to the passenger grab rails for wife's convenience. These just velcroe in place and are easily removed. She keeps her tissues, gum, gloves, etc. in them.

I agree with the statement about crash bars and insurance rates, but I will have some sort of engine guard when available.

A small tank bag that stays in place all the time for phone, reading glasses, etc. Also easily removable when I want to use the Triumph bag.

A small compressor with plugs etc. for roadside tire repair on board at all times.

I like giving and getting lists like this, they often have some pretty good ideas that come in handy and that I haven't thought of.    :152:

Navy Dad,

What small tank bag did you get to fit?

I had an old Eclipse tank bag that has been around here for quite some time and I was thinking about getting rid of it until I bought the Trophy. It is hard to find a bag that fits and this one works great for small items like phones, reading glasses, etc. I mounted the front fastener to the bike along with the fastener for the Trophy bag then I looped the rear straps in the usual way around the frame beneath the front of the seat. This "dual fastener" arrangement works great.

I went with the FIAMM Hi/Lo pair.  About 4000 kms since I installed them - yes they do draw considerably more power and require use of a relay, but that's not a big issue.  They were inexpensive and I can be heard now.  No regrets.
