Do you have ideas on what you would want?
Got it, I have a 2012 so I don't need the holes for the idiot lights.

I like the design in your pic, the only thing I might prefer is to have the top of the bracket follow the curve of the dials, like the OE bracket. Would it be difficult to do that? I could see how that tight radius between the cups might be a bugger.

Got the one for my bike back from powder coat today. Turned out sick. Here's pics.



I'm going to be running a set of 50 in a week. 10 of 5 different styles

1. 2009-2012 with Ignition relocation and flat top
2. 2009-2012 with ignition relocation and contoured top
3. 2009-2012 without ignition relocation and contoured top
4. 2008 and earlier with ignition relocation (bottom right of tach)
5. 2008 and earlier without ignition relocation.


Im willing to fit some custom one's in there too. i just need to know before i cut the lot.

Price for brackets are as follows

$40 for raw un-finised bracket
$50 for Cleaned test fit and painted bracket in your choice of color
$80 for a powder coated and test fit bracket

Lemme know if you want one.

First it is great that you are offering this to the Triumph community at large.

Any pics of the 2008 with the key relocate ?

Also will it have the same bend as the OEM ? I have the Triumph fly screen and do not want to change the headlight
mount. Just wanting to relocate the ignition key up top.

I haven't got any 08 styles made yet. I can bend them. I just need to match the bend angle. I'll use my bros 08 as a template. I'll set u some PDFs of what I'll be doing tomorrow.

To be fair - D9 has been making and offering a lay flat bracket in a number of different layouts. PM him as well if you would like. Also, keep it in PM's please. There is a market place on the site you can have these discussions.

I am not trying to take away from what Wind is trying to do but sponsors pay money to sell their stuff on this site and no real transactions are meant for the general forum. We try to keep it loose but when there is larger interest then it should go in the classifieds.

Here is my bracket from D9. I am not trying to say get one from one person or the next. I am showing this because it follows the lines of the guages.

Ad they make a great product. It's just too pricy for me. That's what brought this on. So far people have pm'd me and all other correspondence has been in private email. I've even given the plans out free. If people can do it on their own ore power to 'em. I especially don't want to tick off sponsors and I'm a regular supporter of a umber of them. I've put nearly 2k into my thruxton since day one. Most of which has been to TRat sponsors.
