Oxford are some of the best. Don't wire directly to the battery though. Use the Triumph plug under the tank. Easternbeaver.com do a nice loom for the job.

Seems to be a common misconception that the 750 has dropped to 47bhp. It hasn't. In fact according to Honda it's output is 40.3kw (54bhp). It's the CB500X that is A2 license (47bhp) friendly.
