woo Hoo just been into dealers and paid for my new Fireball Blue, taking delivery week after next really looking forward to putting some miles on it, latest version is now coming minus the tripper system due to global chip shortage but no reduction in price😢

I like the look of the blue one - but hate the matt green.

But of course yellow is the finest....... 8)

Not to worry about the Tripper. Many here find it rather useless anyway. Many would also have preferred a tachometer there instead, which some have fitted after taking the Tripper off.

Hope you enjoy your new toy! Post a pic so we can check out that new colour.

If anybody has taken their tripper off I might want to buy it for my Interceptor.

Just got back from the First ride on the Fireball in Blue, Great little bike, toe and heel shifter will take a little getting used to, I find my lead foot is keeping the heel depressed when am moving along but that's me not the bike, First impressions great.

Nice colour! Not so sure about the yellow wheel tape though. Thanks for posting the pic.

TEC Bike Parts has a better toe only shifter to replace the cheaply made, poorly designed shift linkage. Top drawer bit of kit. Got one coming across the pond for my Meteor.

I fitted the tec gear lever and it made the gear change a lot smoother and precise.
It is high quality and looks like it should be on the bike.
