I forgot to ask in my first response. Is there actually a Haynes manual for the 2016+ T120's? I didn't think one was available.

I am looking at the SW Motech bars.

Yes, there is now a Haynes manual for the 2016+ water cooled twins.

Those SW motech bars look like they go to the front upper and mid engine mounting bolts (not the engine cradle bolts). So, those are both 105nm.

I have the t-rex bars which attach to the front mid bolts. It’s a bit fiddly to get a wrench on the nut. I needed a second pair of hands to hold the wrench while I used the torque wrench during installation. It’s probably a similar situation for the front top bolts.

Thanks. I think I am going to register for the online manual.

Not exactly what you asked about but I found that the Triumph fork protectors were worthwhile.

Ah thanks. Yeah they look worthwhile! Easy to install?

These Puig frame sliders caught my interest. Expensive at $199 but might look decent enough on my T120 Black: -

I couldn't tell you. I ordered them (along with the dresser bars) when I bought the bike. The dealer put them on.

Did you end up getting the Puig sliders - thoughts? I dropped my TTR on the left side a couple of weeks ago and it's currently in the shop repairing a bent selector shaft. Like the look of the Puig's but not sure they'll protect the engine casings/gear lever in a tip over.
