Hello, could someone post a picture of their adventurer without bags please. I am looking to understand what the naked rails look like and where they attach to the frame. Hard to find these items and so I thought that I might try and fabricate something. Many thanks.

Here are 3 pics. The first is an adventurer but I'm not sure the support is factory. The second is what most of them seem to look like regardless of model. The third I also think is not factory. HTH!

Besides bags, does anyone have engine guards on their 90's Adventurer's? I'm seriously looking at a '96 and have had no luck on finding engine guards.

Thanks, good to have a source. They guards go one without having to take off the pipes? That sounds crazy.

No pipe removal. Very rigid and I love the HW pegs. Quality product and Steve Turner is a great guy to deal with. Only bad thing is the exchange rate but that is the price we pay for owning a British bike.

Do the engine guards separate so you can bring them in together? Looking at those pics, I just don't get it.

Yes, the two sides come together behind the down pipes.

They join under the downpipes and are sleeved so just push together. They fit with just the existing 4 engine mounting bolts so are very straightforward to fit. The rear nuts are tricky to get a socket on the inside so I suggest a "UJ" fitted on an extension bar. I do always send some fitting notes.
The downpipes do not need to be removed but sometimes the water pipe can touch, it just needs the mounting bolt loosened and the pipe clips so that it can be moved fractionally.
The website does need updating, they are £175 plus £45 shipping to the US.

I don't have anymore with the highway pegs, I only had a couple of sets made but they worked out to be far to expensive, I would have needed to charge about £300 which is too much for crash bars.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for posting limits rat, very helpful. Are those rails oem? Did you need to drop new holes in the fender? Thanks.

Sorry but can't answer that. They were on when I bought the bike but they look like OEM as I don't see any evidence of new holes.

I have an extra set of Triumph Pannier Rails that came with my OEM Saddle Bags for my '98 Thunderbird that I'm posting on the classifieds section.

I would be very interested, I'll try and find the ad. I am uncertain if they will fit as the adventurer has a different rear sub frame I think. Can you pm me with the price, thanks.
