  • Triumph Speed 400 aka Safeena

    My trusty RE Himalayan went to her new home in Nov2023 after almost 3.5yrs ,30k kms and tons of good times with me.
    Was on the lookout for a lighter bike after the Himi and after test rides of H452, S400X and the S400 put my money on the S400 - it was-By God's Grace and blessing of ancestors and elders-a gift to myself on my 50th.

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

      The bike is now @2300kms with first service done(oil change + fasteners check+software update).
      Additions are an OE lower engine gaurd ,Carbon racing handlebar risers and a Carbon Racing clear windshield which has been chopped by 40mm from the top by an angle grinder to avoid helmet buffetting and excessive wind noise at the helmet level.
      I am unable to decide on the saddle stays as none are looking appealing to me. Suggestions for appropriate saddle stays are welcome.

        Despite shortening the windshield by 40mm,the in helmet wind noise remains at an unacceptable level-so guess will remove the windscreen shortly. Also as the mercury has shot up ,the radiator fan is almost always on in traffic and the bike is also stalling and shutting off more in bumper to bumper traffic-have to be more mindful of this fact in bumper to bumper traffic

ID:	2240082 The bike has crossed 3000km mark-the windshield has now being shortened down to the level of the ribs and now resembles a vestigial windshield -now it is only a styling element and number plate relocator

            The bike is now closing in on 3500kms - in the last couple of days, the bike had a propensity for low speed stalling - so took it the ASC - the guys there downloaded the latest upgrade into the ECU - the bike was better but still not fully ok - on my insistence, the mechanic opened the air filter - which was fully choked - hence got it replaced. The OE filter is oil soaked paper , the grime sticks to it and doesn't blow off properly even with repeated efforts to blow away the accumulated dirt with compressed air. The filter looks brand new from the outside which means it has done it's job well. The new air filter cost 350+250labour
