I'm quite surprised with your experience. You sure you got the correct parts for your bike?On 2006-02-17 05:02, ozbon wrote:
Is the $220US for the dresser bar and the grab rail, or just the grab rail? I would kill to be able to pay that little for an origional Triumph part. Today I recieved my dresser bar and high backrest, I have to say I'm not impressed with the quality of workmanship, brackets didn't align properly, hex key wouldn't fit in bolts properly,welded nuts with slag in the thread which need to be tapped so they don't strip the bolts, Triumph logo on the back pad scratched and all this for $450AUS dollars I had one quote of $530AUS thats between $330-390US. Normally I'd send it back but it's taken the dealer about 5 weeks and alot of screwing around to finally get the part to me, I just couldn't be bothered

I was asking Brent about the possibility of selling the grab bar by itself so that those of us with the Triumph sissybar could swap out the part when not using the actual backrest portion. That way we wouldn't have to purchase the dresser bar (lower rail) again.
The conclusion was that the grab rail was going to be very expensive to make and sell unless there was going to be a big market for it.
Hey, Chuck! How about this? We split the cost 50/50 you keep the dresser bar and all the fasteners and I keep the grab bar. Interested? Shoot me a PM if you are.

Consider spending the same kind of money (and some) for a Ventura Rack System. You mount a couple 'L' bars to your bike parallel to the underside of the seat. To those 'L' bars can mount either:
a small luggage rack that holds a "Sport Bag" w/pockets
- or -
a large luggage rack with a tall rail to support one of a variety of huge single bags (or a couple bags that can zip together)
- or -
a classy grab rail (available in chrome?).
Ridge, which handlebar are you running? it doesn't look like an M bar (maybe a bit more rise) but it sure isn't stock. I ride a fair amount of interstate highway, often to get to the good roads, and want to be leaned into the bike more.On 2006-02-17 19:27, Ridge wrote:
Sounds great, Chuck.
Here's a shot of just the dresser bar on my bike. It may help you get a feel if you'll like it by itself.
