For whatever reason, it’s listed absolutely nowhere. I had to call Triumph NA and beg the guy to log off of NerdBook for 5 seconds and check. Sure enough, they make one... Also, there is a Black Engine Bolt Kit. If you’re going to do this all in one shot one day, you might want to check that out. Especially since it’s only like an extra $40 bucks.

I’m snowed in with an out of nowhere 16 inches of snow, so I just went out to take a closeup of the engine cover & sprocket cover for you, to try to show the texture, and how it looks pressed right up against the almost exact same color of the black engine itself... It’s the exact same as found stock on a T120-Black & Street Twin, which is a textured matte black. Besides the sprocket cover, they are all the same part numbers actually... And as you can see, they are a lot more bug/dirt/water spot resistant. So a little less maintenance is an added bonus. Cheers.
Thank you... and yeah, could not find that part number anywhere!!

Black Front Sprocket Cover Kit Part Number A9610394 - US$103.74

Heel guards in black

Black Ribbed Inspection Cover Part Number A9610261 - US$45.00

Black Engine Cover Kit Part Number A9618184 - US$375.00

Black Intake Covers Part Number A9618183 - US$55.00

Black TPS Covers Ribbed (for her pleasure) Part Number: A9610349 - US$60.00

Black Engine Bolt Kit - Part # A9618190 - $45

And that is one of the reasons for me to be thinking about changing them to black. Beside the looks... the ones that I have got stained some how and I can't seem to be able to get rid of the stains... here, take a closer look:

Black Engine Bolt Kit - Part # A9618190 - $45

If you want to go crazy, I also bought the Black Head Bolt Cover Kit - Part # A9610275 - $50


I had almost the same spots on mine too... My most noticeable one was from after I was already off the bike for 20 to 30 mins, I was simply wiping the tank with a squirt bottle with regular water in it & a microfiber cloth. A drop or two made its way down from the bottle or tank to just like in your pictures... I couldn’t wipe it off fast enough... It’s sort of like when you were a little kid, and you accidentally left a sweaty glass or cup on your grandma’s nice stained oak dining room table without a coaster or something... It sort of stains IN the material, rather than ON the material... And you Brillo or polish that brushed look and then you have to do the whole case... The thought drove me bonkers... So I saw the Black Engine Cases on eBay really cheap & jumped on them... I knew it was going to solve the maintenance issue that I was having with the brushed ones... I didn’t know I would like the look so much, that I would end up buying almost all the Triumph black accessories though... Oh, well... I do like my bike even more than I already did when I first got it. So all in all, it worked out. Cheers.

If that is the case... any major issues remove/replacing these covers? Involved procedure? or easy? Anything that I need to be aware/worried about when removing? I might just remove mine and send them off to the local powder coating shop... I will get the black bolt kit anyway... always like to get new bolts when removing these parts...

Not speaking (typing) for anyone other than myself and my own experience with these installed on my bike for over a year & a half... So not trying to argue or offend...

I haven’t had even one spot or mark on my cases that didn’t wipe right off, since I had the black ones installed.
*knock on wood*

The second to last time my bike was at the dealer, they decided to give it a “courtesy wash” without asking me. (It was the one time I wasn’t there for a “while I wait” appointment, due to it being unridable because the rear ABS sensor got sheared off cause a tech put my rear wheel on half-ass.)... Anyway, the bike got box-trucked back to me with dried hard-water spots all over the motor... The sh*t would have looked like my bike has Skittles-Pox for the rest of its life if it was on the brushed. Wiped right off the black ones with ease, to my relief.

The last time I was at the dealer, just 3 weeks ago for one nice day above 60*F we had, I got the oil changed and the ECU/Gauges recall done... From the oil change and from the long ride there & back with semi sh*tty salty roads, my bike looked like it was a relic unearthed from beneath the ancient pyramids of Egypt, and not a 2016...

All that crap wiped right off... I was so surprised, and so relieved after dealing with silly things like just dried bugs here & there from summer riding, that would always look like a murder scene outline of the bug for the rest of my life with the brushed headers & cases.

So again, I would recommend them. And the finish is the exact same as the engine if you get the Triumph ones... Instead of someone having “their guy” powder them right out behind his meth-lab one afternoon... If you look closely at that amazing expensive black full fairing one I posted of that guy’s in NYC, you can even see how the slip-on’s are a slightly different shade of black than the headers... Sprocket cover slightly off to the right-side engine case... A heel guard that looks like it was bought off the shelf from the Wal*Mart close-out sale isle... If you can pick that up from a really nice picture, imagine it in real life, on a bright sunny day up close... Na wa’ I’m say’n?
