Hope all is good, Dave!I’ll keep you all posted as to how I get on with the first couple of rides.
Those silencers are by far, the noisiest ones i have ever used. You might like the noise they make on the overun with about 3 to 4000 rpm.My 'did with my Triumph' is low tech. Had a fire damaged '78 mudguard for a '73 frame.
Cut sides off that suffered worst damage and had scallop for hydraulics that won't be needed. Will not be having side panels, so adds 'airiness' whilst protecting frame and still offering support at bottom.

Cut front six or eight inches off to avoid the indentation for coils tray and worst damage. This leaves the only nice bit of chrome left poking out as a café-flavour rear end.

Front mudguard is from a rusty rather than fire damaged bike. Rusted through and dented. Cut to maximum size to avoid the worst damage.

Waste not, want not.
Oh! I'd better put the wadding back in then.Those silencers are by far, the noisiest ones i have ever used. You might like the noise they make on the overun with about 3 to 4000 rpm.
Its good when one bird goes out to let the other bird in. I used the fridge a few times on bearings but not brave enough to cook an engine. I suppose i might have warmed up a few bits though
Thanks for the tip. Just ordered a strip of copper sheet.I use some copper sheet i cut up to get that large gap filled when using those silencers.
It sounds like this at speed
Mmmm ... sort-of ... based on the ones I've got, I'd say the bends forward go further forward than real M 'bars, which is possibly one reason for the problems you're experiencing?handlebars. Like M Bars, but third the price.
Heathen ...T140E yoke. Clocks binnacle doesn't fit. That's okay, it's ugly.
Possibly due to the 'bars not being real M 'bars?Problem is that T140V clock brackets also clash.
This bit I don't understand.Anyone know a clock holder with a 90 angle, so I could them into the binnacle? (Circled.)
One size afaik. And they're ugly ... My T100 with front disc-brake, while I used the aforementioned '73-'78 twins/'73-'74 T150 top yoke, I mounted the clocks in a Triples Rule 3-Gauge Bracket.longer T140V style brackets?
Excellent idea, Peg.Hi Alex
Have you tried the binnacle with the standard Triumph p mountings for the bars, rather than the risers you have fitted?
have you tried swept back risers?
The problem is if you get a bracket it is going to be expensive and based on standard bars and ’P’ mounts, unless you have something bespoke made which is very expensive, or build something yourself, cheap but maybe not the best finnish (depending on your skill). Both me and OCR (Davey)have made their own brackets, mine looks very home made with minor issues, OCR’s look like they are factory fitted.
Example only note not for T140E
