Pic Request: Triumph Frame Sliders on 765

Can someone post a pic of the factory frame sliders on the 765, preferably white, I'd like to see the fitment with respect to the bodywork. Trying to decide between that style and the R&G style...

kawabunga those look good.

Is that Frame Protectors Item # A9788013?

Does Triumph have an engine cover protectors item for the Street Triple R (765)? I found Item # A9618171 and Item # A9618132 but there was no information for which bike they fit.

According to the pure-triumph.com website description, A9618132 is for certain VIN #'s of Daytona 675 while A9618171 is for Street Triple and certain VIN #'s Daytona 675.

My understanding is that the 765 uses the same engine covers as the 675.

This style seems to be very compact compared to the usual style of the round bobbins. Will this really protect in a low side?

Here are the R&G ones I fitted on my bike. I had the OEM ones in my hand and they are considerably shorter. Mines look huge on the pictures but you don't actually notice them in person. Hope this helps!

IMO, shorter is better for a crash (not a tip over). I've personally seen bad results when a long slider digs in and slams or flips bike. I believe the frame slider is meant to protect the expensive bits (frame, engine) and not all the periphery (lights, etc). Also, the ones that use only one bolt tend to bend. I've seen that many times.

A tech from a national race team personally told me that the Triumph frame sliders crash very well. That was for a Daytona but they're of similar design.

IMO, if you're worried about dropping the bike at very low speed or having it knocked over in the garage, then long ones are probably best. If you go to the track, then wide (span two bolts) and short(er) are best.

To each his own, though. Most people put aesthetics over function anyway.

The Triumph ones are also great for securing the bike into a chock. Very handy place to loop a soft strap.

On my previous FZ-07 that's exactly what happened. It completely ruined the threads where the engine bolt was supposed to go in.
