I just double checked and all Daytona 675s and Street Triples including the new 2013s have the same throttle tube. So The 1050 tube will offer shorter throw for all of them.

I plan on doing it .. I don't like the stock throttle . It's like 1 1/2 turns to full. Less turning = more snot ..

Triumph have a habit of fitting different parts to the same bikes (look at the swingarms - some later bikes still got the short one, well after the long one had been introduced, and both swingarms have the same part number), so maybe later ones got the 1050 tube, with no change in part numbers on the fiches. I've not compared the cam on my throttle to a 1050 tube, but I know it's the throttle that it left the factory with, and has exactly the same travel as a 1050 Speed Triple (and the same as my Bandit with quick action throttle cam on) - 1/5 turn from closed to fully open. Whatever they've done, the later bikes (or at least mine) certainly have less throttle travel than the earlier ones, with none of the excessive travel problems that owners of the earlier bikes complain of. Given the fact that it's already a 1/5 turn throttle, and the snatchy nature of the Striple's throttle when getting back on the power from a closed/trailing throttle, I wouldn't want to reduce it any more.

Forgive me if I call foul but even the 1050 throttle tube is between 1/4 and 1/2 turn when on the Street Triple let alone 1/5 ....

Easy to clear up though, the two have very different profiles at the cable mount and can be told apart visually so why don't you slip the throttle tube off and post a picture of the cable mount end, head on please




EDIT: Correction to my previous statement, just checked and with zero cable slack my throttle throw with the 1050 tube is right at 90* or 1/4 turn from resting position to WOT.

.. My Bike.. ...has a new owner :(

Maybe in spring - garages are a lot colder in winter here than they are in Florida, lol. I don't know without taking it off whether mine got a 1050 tube at the factory, but I can categorically say that it is less than 1/4 turn from closed to fully open (and I've just been out to the garage to double check that - it's easy enough to check, just use one of the lines of dots or moulding seams on the grip as a datum). When it's warmer i'll measure the exact angle. I'd guess it's around 85 degrees (admittedly that's more than 1/5 turn, but it's definitely less than 1/4). In 20 years of riding bikes I've never ridden anything that has anything even close to a 1/2 turn throttle, you'd need very odd wrists for that, lol.

Lol, you edited that after my post. Still too cold to be taking anything off and photographing currently though - have you ever been to Yorkshire in mid winter? I've not been to Florida, but I've seen it on telly, and it looks a fair bit warmer there, lol.

90* is way to long a throw for my arthritic wrists, 60* would be more like it. I wonder what the roadrace guys are using?

I know this is a stupid question, but I'll ask anyway. Are there any posts on how to actually do the swap. I guess it is pretty straight fwd.

Here's a thought...I have the 1050 tube but still have a slight (to me) feeling of it being twitchy at low speeds and on bumpy back roads . Not as much as with the stock tube, but still there non the less. If I were to get the throttle tamer by G2 for the SPEED Triple...I wonder if it would still be shorter to WOT? At least shorter compared to stock? They claim "The radius increases or “ramps up” after ˝ throttle to keep overall rotation requires to reach full throttle at or near stock rotation." Flame suit on and checked...but after my off last summer I'm looking for ANYTHING that will up the joy and decrease the "I'm not liking this anymore" feeling.

Thanks guys.

Lol. That would be the cheapest option.
