Put the trophy on a diet!
« on: March 23, 2016, 10:19:34 pm »
Hey guys! I'm picking up my Trophy 1200 (T312) on Friday and I'm wanting to get on with abit of modification!
I'm not wanting to go all out "cafe racer" but I am wanting to lose the tourer look and put the bike on a diet! Could anyone advise me on how and what needs to be done to permenantly remove the fairings and change the headlight?
Please spare no detail as I'm new to modifying a bike
Cheers guys!

If anyone has done what you are proposing, I am not aware of it.

Good Luck!

Why pay for all of those bits and then toss them out? Why not go with a "Standard" or "naked" type of bike instead?

Unless you're really good at fabricating a new fuel cell and some new body panels, I don't think you will be able to lose the fairing. This is what my TTSE looks like naked on one side.

Shorai and Pipework slip-on are all I did.  That and running with top case only instead of 2 panniers.  Enough for me.  You are not gonna get significant savings without compromising what makes the bike what it is.
