- 2022 All Black Rocket R
Hello all, in the process of waiting for my bike to be delivered and I've run into a conundrum with accessories. Any triumphs techs please chime in if you know the answer. So I'm 190 cm..6ft 2 1/2 inseam 34 inch and was able to find an All black rocket 3r model. I've sat on both models and love the feel of the gt seat and forward controls. I ordered both for my own customization purposes to feel relaxed. I also ordered the quick shifter and shift assist kit for the forward controls. All options on all Triumph sites when you configure your ride when ordering. Now my Japanese dealer is saying the shift kit wont work on the forward controls on an R model bike even though the shift assist is the same part# for both bikes. Saying something to the fact it will reverse the gearing if installed forward controls on an R model that is supposed to have mid controls. i.e. I'm no licensed mechanic but I just don't see how moving controls forward would negate a shift assist and make normal shifting opposite. Any knowledgeable info is greatly appreciated. Thanks for the add.
