As for my literacy, if you'd care to enlighten me as to what you misguidedly think may be wrong with the parts you've highlighted in bold, then I'm happy to comment, but as there's nothing wrong with any of them, I'm somewhat at a loss to comment, without further clarification, lol.
Have a nice day y'all, lol.
Listen, from some of your posts you seem perfectly capable of adding something beneficial to this forum. Please stop junking it up with useless banter, regardless of how much or how little you regard the opinion of "yank[s], who probably couldn't point to the UK on a map."

As far as telling people the quality of their parts, you only need to tell them once. There is no need reminding them ever couple of pages.

@Kowalski may i suggest you tone down your comments or otherwise you will find yourself on the receiving end of a ban by me you want to act the tough guy go to your local pub as your attitude stinks this is a place for like minded people to converse and discuss their bikes not to have to put up with your arrogance..
you have been warned you will not get a second warning it will be an instant ban as i see fit

Looks great! (Other than those stock mirrors; combined with the new headlights it really does make these bikes look like an insect)

Bahaha never heard that before, but you're so right! Time for me to order some new mirrors.

It really does look awesome. Mirrors are easy to take care of; the real work's already done

So if this is a step above a Street Triple R, what shall we call it? Street Triple RR?

Just curious, how'd you bore out the lower triple clamps? I thought about looking for some Ohlins forks since I recently did a full suspension swap out on an even cleaner slate (Street Triple non-R) and went with an Ohlins shock, but I ended up just getting some Daytona forks and dropping in cartridges since I didn't want to have to go through the hassle of sourcing all-new triples. I never thought about boring the clamps though!

I've been calling my bike with Daytona suspension and brakes an RR, ha ha, so I think the Ohlins should bump it to an RS.

One concern I have is what the boring of the lower clamps will do to the structural integrity of that piece. Any concerns on your part, OP?

Good question- structurally the lower clamp is pretty beefy to begin with. The bore enlargement was very minor considering the size of the piece. I'm still curious if the speed triple r's lower clamp could have be used.
