Hi fellas,

 

Just recently bought a STR. Would love to catch up as I need a lot of help with getting around and tips on riding safely here. Confirming the bike could get very hot as soon as you stop. continue riding might not be too bad.

 

New to Singapore also which resulting in a 1hr riding home from work instead of 15' :)

 

Cheers T

Hi T,

 

Welcome to Singapura & a pat on your shoulder for getting a STR. I'm sure u're loving every moment with it. Feel free to hop around this thread as well as the speed triple thread. No lines drawn! :D

anyone had the dilemma comparing ducati 696 VS street triple?

 

maintenance, FC, functionality on the road everyday

 

Ive owned both ... Maintenance wise 696 costs a fair bit more due to the valve and belt adjustments required at 12k intervals. I did get more mileage per FC on the 696 though (above 20km per litre for the 696 and less than 20km per litre on the STR). My only complaints on the 696 would be the riding position which kind of puts pressure on your arms and shoulders after awhile but could be easily solved by getting bar risers i guess, and the low seating position which leaves my knees bent with both legs on the floor at traffic stops. Otherwise its a nifty bike that looks good and sounds great. The STR on the other hand has a comfortable seating position, better torque. Probably slightly better compared to the 696 for daily use if u ask me. But both bikes gave me good times and ultimately still individual choice ... best to go for a test ride and feel it out yourself ... hope this helps!

Give it a few more days and you will get used to it. I found it balls burning hot the first month but has since gotten used to it.

 

Or u can just go faster :p that helps tremendously in cooling the bike too hehe.

Haha i like the idea of going faster but i dont like to lose my license :p

 

I heard wrapping the pipe might reduce some heat or DIY a heat deflecting sheet under the seat.

 

Not sure how long it will take me to get used to this but Singapore weather is hot enough let alone a seat warmer :))

Hi everyone. I'm currently riding '13 streety. Just want to ask fellow streety, particularly '13 model.

1) Do you experience any oil leak? Usually the base of the oil sump is wet with engine oil (yes, EO, not chain lube).

2) I notice upon inspection, the front bolt at the oil sump (on the right side of oil drain bolt) is loose. Anyone had the same experience? I torque it to spec (12Nm) but still no difference.

 

Went to MAH the first time, was told maybe due to chain lube but after i did a thorough cleaning, the oil came back. Usually after a ride. Will post some pics when free.

A couple of triumphrats and street-triple.co.uk forumers having the same problem. But i understand that assembly and make is different between us and them? Just wana know if anyone here is also affected.

 

The picture above is the base of oil sump. Almost completely wet with oil. No drips though. Just wet when you touch at the base.
