Instant Speedmaster Tank Swap!

I rode up to Detroit Triumph for their free coffee. Told the guy I'm interested in ordering a speedmaster tank. He said he has new black Speedmaster in crate, and he can take take and put it on my bike... right now. I said cool, and less than an hour later, I'm back in the wind.

Outstanding...

That's what I call a result mate. Great service by that dealer.

Congrats,

Roy

Thanks Roy... tank and fuel pump was direct swap... i had to use SpMas fuel gauge sensor, as original bobber sender wont give proper reading in new tank. Filled, I can tell differece in feel... more solid and weighty. Love it. I'm getting short fender kit next. And I have to say, my best bang-for-buck modification in terms of fun were the leather tassles for the apes. 🤔

The SM and Bobber share the same fuel level sender. The part numbers are the same.

That's awesome! The bike looks great. Did you have a black Bobber tank on there before, or was this a color change too?

Each one matters.

The dealer said fuel pumps are same across Bonneville range, but the sender in Bobber tank wont give proper reading in Speedmaster tank. I'm actually not 100% sure, so I believed him as he talked an English engineer at Triumph from the mother country. I think the bobber needs the SM tank as it looks better, IMHO.

Tank looks good, a sensible upgrade.
Your levers appear to have grown whiskers.
