Hi,
Been trolling the net trying to find a TTSE headlight protector.
It looks like all the Powerbronze sites are out of stock.

I rang the Aussie firm Australian Motorcycle Headlight Protectors and the gent was going to measure one up today.
The company has been sold / bought and have now moved down to Northern NSW.
Might be 3-4 weeks until he has something ready for the Trophy.

A AMHP protector saved the headlight on my FJR once, huge $$$$$ for a new one and the Trophy would be more.

Any leads would be appreciated.

Powerbronze UK are showing that they have 1 set of the "Light tint" in stock in the UK ...

I ordered the Clear ones when they showed "0 stock",
but they were still delivered inside 2 weeks,
although I appreciate they have to be shipped to you Down Under
so will probably take a bit longer.

You could try asking Powerbronze via the "Contact us" tab,
top right of the Powerbronze Web Page to see if they can give
a better idea on delivery timescales  :028:

Could you post a pic of what the headlight covers look like on your TT?  The pictures on Powerbronze's website don't show them very clearly…

Thanks.

How does this work?  How does the plastic film protect the lens when hit by a rock?  Doesn't the lens crack anyway?

Not a plastics film but made of hard clear plastic that sticks above the headlight with  3m lock blocks
The powerbronze ones are a good fit and look fine.
