    Not necessarily, Jodie wanted something after a particularly windy trip down the Oregon coast where she got beat up pretty good. Installed this fly screen after and she's been fine with it and doesn't want anything more. YMMV

    Sorry if I miss typed. I certainly want a fly screen - when I said naked - meant with 'something' on there. That one looks cool and more substantial than the normal one I see on these bikes although I hear those are pretty effective too.

    I like my 2015 STR with fly screen up to about 110km/h (70 mph), but 130km/h is the max I can do for 1hr+. Compare this to my old Daytona, where 160km/h (100mph) was easy to maintain over a long time.

    Whether or not the extra screen on top of the fly screen works for you, might also depend on your length.

    I'd call this a little more than a fly screen; it fits my definition of a 1/4 fairing. Regardless, I haven't seen this one before. Who makes it?

    Picture a clear euro bullet fairing fly screen with the twin round headlamps

    Mirrors are back on. PO had taken them off to fit cheap bar end mirrors. I did not want those, so he took them off but had not put the originals back on.

    It came with one mirror, and I found a second. Couldn't put the one mirror on Saturday, since the OP had shortened the bolts when he removed the mirrors.

    I've got the suspension set up better for me than what it was, but still a bit harsher than I like. Need to fiddle a bit more. And ride a lot more.

    They work great. They are very well designed to perfectly fit the tank shape.

    I will be replacing the Diablo Corsas before too long and was looking for something with better wet grip. Any recommendations? Keep in mind my 2015 Rx has ABS so I need tires that will not cause an ABS error.

    The four tires listed in the manual are not what I am looking for. Anyone running Pilot Road 4's on an ABS equipped Striple? I really like them on my Monster.

    I ran a PR3 up front and a PR4 in the back for about 18,000 miles on my '13 with no issues of any sort. Well, other than the handling getting a bit less assured about 12k in. I've got a pair of Pilot Power 3's on right now, a bit less than 3k on them so far (2200 from a trip I took a week ago) and I definitely like them. I managed to hit no rain on my trip, so no comparison on how they handle the wet. They definitely stick much more than I have the ability to use though.

    Sorry no experience with ABS but PR4s are the only tire my wife will let me install on her Street Triple R. Son also switched to PR4s on his Speed Triple after running stickier rubber for a few seasons and really likes the PR4s and doesn't feel he gave up anything. I also run em on my Griso with no complaints, it's not a sport bike but it does handle and I like to ride quickly.

    Can't see how a tire, at least a tire as good as a PR4, could cause an ABS error?

    The ABS computer works off the speed differential between front and rear tires. The four approved tires have the diameter and profile for which the ABS system is calibrated, according to Triumph. I am sure there are other tires that will not cause ABS errors. Just looking for someone who can verify it from experience.

    I am a bit like your wife in regards to the PR4s. I think they are about ideal for real world street riding. The Super Corso tires are very sticky, but on cold and/or wet pavement they get sketchy. It's been cool and rainy every day since I bought the bike. :dirtdog

    What year is your Street and does it have ABS?
