So I got some Rigid Industries Denali D2 Aux lights. I don't have them mounted yet but I finally got them all wired up last night. The lights have 3 wires coming out of the the harness and the switch has 5. It took me several tries to figure out what goes where. I used the Triumph Aux light switch thats mounts to the clutch clamp. Anyhow, if anyone else tries the same combo below are what wires go to what... After I get them all mounted up I'll post some pics.

You have the same hand guards and Madstad windshield as I do on my Roadie. As a trial, I also installed the winglets on my bike as you have. But I found that they severely limited how much I could turn the handlebars. My bars are rotated somewhat forward, perhaps that caused the interference or just perhaps the lower bars of the Roadie.

BTW, I agree with an earlier poster who commented that for highway riding the most comfortable windshield position is essentially parallel to the black base plate.

I just returned from a four day, 2100 mile road trip and for my 5 ft 10 in height, that position was the most comfortable of the six different positions that I tried. In addition to the windshield being parallel to the base plate, I also have it adjusted far away from the base plate to create a relatively large opening between the base plate and the windshield and I adjusted mine somewhat higher than shown in this picture.

Fyi

SB 439 for VIN's 466334 thru 501587.

This is for a new shifter return spring. Triumph is not sending out letters & dealers act like they don't want to mess with this unless you have a problem. If you call them & let them know that you know, then they'll do the recall.

My VIN is a 510 so it looks like the 2012 model I bought in November is a newer build than the affected bikes. Ducati had some issues with shifter return springs on some bikes. Best to get it fixed ASAP.

I called triumph yesterday to complain about them not letting people know about the tsb(s). I then called my dealer and they ordered the return spring repair kit.

You need to make sure they have the new parts on hand.

Thanks for the above. On the Triumph parts fiche for the OEM fog lights it shows a relay (part #8). Did you need to order that relay as well or is that not necessary?

Awesome info, thanks. I'm probably going to replace the stock hand guards at some point. On the road I think they're fine - just looking for a little rock protection. But I really like the look of these - http://www.highwaydirtbikes.com/HDB_Shop/ I'm going to be out that way in 3 weeks and going to check and see if they'll do the dirty work for me.
