The shorter (and stronger)-than-stock Sebimoto subframe ($440) from Yoyodyne is made from aluminum tube and is more than two pounds lighter than the stock part. The stock battery had trouble turning over the engine after we added some compression, and eventually gave up. An R6 battery is just one inch wider and two pounds heavier but offers more than twice the cranking power; we slotted the battery box a bit wider, and the R6 battery slid right in. The Triumph kit manual calls for an external fuel-injection device to trim the kit ECU's map for various conditions or fuel, so we ordered up a Power Commander ($350) and quickshifter kit ($266). A Penske 8987 shock handles rear-suspension duties, offering adjustments for high- and low-speed compression damping, rebound damping, spring preload and ride height. The shock is very user-friendly, with easy access to the adjusters, and does not require a compressor to change the spring.
