    Hello

    Greetings from Nashville TN. Cody here. I have a 2005 Speed Triple. I'm a relatively new rider with I'd say, less than 1000 miles on the road. I've been playing around with the triples appearance- here's some pictures to ponder.

    Welcome to the site. Ride easy and work your way into this beast. The front end gets light easily.

    Thanks man. It sure does. I've been dialing the suspension in as I gain experience and learn what proper feels like. None-the-less, I still get a surprise here and there.

    It's not in those... Merely a mock up of future plans. I also had an exhaust prototyped from flex tubing which will serve as a template for the welder shop. Check out the attachment.

    No O2 sensor? Wont your leg get a bit warm with that set up, look forward to seeing the finished product. I have the 05 model, had to upgrade the front brake after it let me down a couple of times, if I ever had the front wheel in the air like everyone said it would, then the issue with the front brake wouldn't matter.

    The o2 sensor is in a custom midpipe I had welded up. I plan on sealing then wrapping the exhaust. If it's still warm on my leg, I'll heat shield that section per cafe style.

    I was able to do another mock-up tonight. Here's how she might just sit. Still lots to do of course. Don't look too closely, yet.
