Oh, how I hate anodized bolt kits for motors. If not for that, it is a beautifully modded bike.

I'd go with black bolts, but the red beats the heck out of the stock bright bolts on a black motor.

Random question for those who ride year round - how's the stator/rectifier on these, and do they have enough amps to power some decent heated gear? Thinking of a heated vest/gloves/pants, if I can - gets a bit cold here in Colorado during the winters, and I love the bike enough to want to ride year round, but seeing that they only support a single extra light (at least according to triumph) makes me a bit worried about a bunch of heating elements. Anyone tried it?

Here you go, this should answer your question.

They make plenty of power AFAIK, they are however notoriously NOT dependable. Aside from that Stupid EXUP valve the R&R is the only major problem with the 675's. That being said, they can be replaced with a unit from another bike, say a Honda to be made more reliable. Supposedly there is a replacement coming from Triumph but I have yet to see a service bulletin for it.

Funny you say honda, as the 3 hondas I'm involved in all have their notoriously BAD RR/stator

We just replaced my friend's VFR750 one for a second time (this time with aftermarket), and I swapped out my CBR one early on before I sold it. Gonna have to do the same with the Nighthawk 650, as it doesn't even charge below 2500rpm!

Street Triples do not have "that stupid EXUP valve." (Daytonas only).

The Triumph replacement R/R (p/n T1301234) is state-of-the-art as far as such things on motorcycles go. Its a MOSFET device, runs way cooler, charges better, and Triumph even reversed the installation to provide better cooling. Can't fault it.

Yeah I forgot about that, never had to worry about it since I have a Streety. Too bad Triumph didn't put the better R/R on the bike originally.

Is that the stock part, or a replacement?

That's the new replacement kit that includes a new harness, RR and bracket.

Would someone please explain the last half dozen posts to a non-electrically minded person and tell how it affects the ability of my 2011 to run my Gerbings?
