    Crash Bars

      I'm asking for any recommendations for drop protection hardware that is reasonably priced. In addition, I bought a 2015 Trophy SE which came with a Garmin mount, Does anyone know what model(s) were options from Triumph as I cant seem to find a unit that will mount correctly. Any replies are appreciated Thanks Dinty from Boston

    Hi Dinty and :400: to the Club !

    There are only really 2 options for "Crash Bars" :

    1.  R & G Racing "Adventure Bars" - a UK based Company,
    but you can ususally find their products for sale by various sellers in the US.

    2.  Forum Member "Tralex" who is in Spain, ( I believe he can ship around the World)
    and produces his own Bars as per this Topic :

    Crash Bars by Tralex

    He also makes protection bars for the Panniers, and a Luggage Rack that goes above the Panniers.
    It is best to make contact using the Forum Private Message service, but appreciate that he speaks
    very little English with Spanish being his native language !

    With regards to Sat Nav's the Triumph Bracket has 4 mounting holes that are designed
    to accept an Industry standard mount ( AMHP ? ).

    Originally the Trophy was designed to accept the Garmin 600 / 660 Sat Nav,
    and has a dedicated Power Supply connector and Audio Input Plug,
    though many Members have opted for the later Garmin 595 Model,
    which has the same connectivity, or even other Models that just use Bluetooth
    for connecting with the Trophy Audio system.

    This Topic is quite useful if you are going to fit a Sat Nav - although you already have
    the Sat Nav bracket, the Topic describes how that is fitted, as it will need to be removed
    for the new Sat Nav wiring cradle mount to be attached to it.
    The Cradle wires have to pass through the Sat Nav mounting bracket assembly :

    Those that have bought the bars from Tralex seem to be very happy with them.  He makes rear ones to protect the luggage as well.  You can PM him for info.

    Dinty  :400: As you've already found out there's a lot of helpful members here. All the best with your "new toy". By the way even though I have R & G crash bars fitted to my Trophy I feel that Tralex's bars are better in the way they mount. Just my thoughts. Cheers.  :821: :158:

     Thanks for your response, I've been looking for a top box and cover phantom black.
      I was fortunate to locate a box in California and a cover in England. I also solved the Garmin bracket/dock mystery. It is a Garmin  396 LST. It should be sufficient for my needs and reasonably priced ( used on eBay). Now I'm wondering where I can mount my iPhone, I  bought a RamX grabber dock with a 1" ball on the backside. I've seen a tank mount/bag mount but I'm wondering if there is another location that I shouldn't miss. The phone will need to be powered (location?)  And ball receiver hardware? and location? any and all suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks again Dinty

    Probably the easiest RAM mount solution is a threaded ball - can be screwed into the unused (at least stock) mirror mount holes on the bars.  If you already have aftermarket mirrors attached to the bars, some have drilled and threaded the center cap nut  A no-tools alternative is a RAM Lobster Claw - I've used one - It's ugly and bulky in use, but it works, and it is fully attachable/removable with no tools involved.

    On the rare occasions that I want to mount my Mobile Phone, I use a Ram ball
    fitted to the left supplementary mirror hole ( in the Clutch Master cylinder casting ),
    and an "X-Grip" Phone Holder with Ram Ball, that has a USB Socket built in,
    and just needs two wires connecting - one for +12volts, and one for Ground.

    These wires can be routed along the handlebars with all the
    other wires and connected to somewhere convenient,
    such as the Cockpit Storage box accessory socket wiring.

    The X-Grip USB socket has a rubber cap to keep water out
    when not in use, but is not watertight when being used.

    From eBay I found a very short “Lightning” power cable
    to go from the X-Grip USB socket, to the iPhone in the Grip.
