Swingarm, fork and crash bobbins. Pics.

Hi everyone!

Just finished installing the Evotech swingarm, fork and crash bobbins. Superb quality!

Easy installation, but aware with the front right-side bolt, because it's pretty tricky tu release, and even worse to tighten...

IMO, results are perfect!

Nice and neat fit.

Hope should I never try them though!

Here're the pics, hope you like them!

For those of you, wondering how wide the bike turns out, here are some pics so you can realise how much they stick out.

IMO, they're just the right size, not protuding to much, but enough to accomplish correct defense function.

In the front view, from that angle, you can't even see them!

Also, they don't look ugly at all, at least to my eyes...

Regards!!!

Hmmmm I wonder what a pair of these costs shipped to the United States. I'm in St. Louis MO. Any idea where is the best place to order from?

Talking Things may not seem as they appear...

"Crash" bobbins mounted to the frame may not be the best idea. The frame designed by Triumph isn't designed to take lateral energy. Ditto for the engine bosses.

Another issue I have is what if the bike (and you) go down?

It seems to me the bike will slide a lot farther on the tarmac, possibly running into the rider that won't slide as far. This could be an issue.
