Thanks much. Arrow pipe and a few other odds and ends are enroute. I've tried all the modern triumph seats, and the 2014 "upgraded" seat is my favorite. Second to the solo seat. Did close to 200 miles Saturday and my butt never noticed. My Bonnie seat was a different experience.....

'12 was a big change, right?

It doesn't have the 2014 on there yet but changes include new colors, matte blue and a gloss silver/red combo along with an upgraded seat similar to thruxton, black powder coated wheels and black handlebar. Skid plate is standard.

One thing to note about that site...first year for Fuel Injection in the US was 2009. Europe got FI in 2008. It's a U.K. Site but most other info is accurate. 2010 saw updated front rotors and a stronger hub/spoke design. You can analyze the pics on that site and see some of the changes such as the switch to dual gauges in 2010 etc...

Black oil line and bars as well. All '14's are supposed to have a better exhaust note too. My stock scrambler pipes sound better than my stock 2012 Bonneville pipes, but I'm assuming that's due to the 270 crank as opposed to the 360.

Either way, the stock pipes don't do either bike justice.

The Shark website doesn't have much info.

I also wanted to ask what fenders are those?

No center stand.
It's a really well done exhaust, with removable db killer and a good, low and not noisy sound, and increase 4 hp for efi and carburators bikes.
