PROTECTIVE PANNIERS TRANSPARENT FILM
« on: May 15, 2014, 03:16:31 pm »
Any experience?
Does anybody put protective film on their panniers bag on the Trophy?
I'm looking and I would install it to avoid scratches on the paint.
let me know.
thank you

Answer : YES ! - And elsewhere too :



There's another topic on Paint Protection kits here : Protective paint film options

Triumph have their own kit but it doesn't cover nearly as much of the painted surfaces
that are prone to scratches, stone chips etc that I wanted so I got mine from Tony James Designs, West Midlands UK

ok....but what about the SIDE of the panniers (where is the triumph logo)?
I see in the picture that there is only film protecting the front side of them.
..how protect from side scratches?

I dropped my bike the other day on the road odd angle etc  :233: and a replaceable wear patch that runs down the front and under the panniers would have saved a few scratch. Looking online there is not much to protect the rear of the bike from light falls so  I am looking at making a set for myself they could even add to the appearaence. Looking at fiberglass, alloy copper brass and plastic  :087:
any more ideas

I spoke with Tony James, very helpful and I'm sure they would provide the side pannier protection if not already included. For the price quoted I don't thing this is to expenses, considering the cost to replace or repair any damage. :002:

1st bike Yamaha DT125, 2nd bike Yamaha XV535 Virago 3rd bike Honda CBR 1000 F, 4th bike Honda Hornet 600 (story to tell) 5th bike Suzuki B-King 1300, 6th bike Suzuki GSX1250 FA. Then comes the cream of them all the TTSE in Blue the best colour in my opinion ....... :-)

Can I get this also from Italy?
Will they ship it without problems?

PS how this films applies on the surface? Just like a sticker or it needs hot air and water, such some films I found around?

Biboy I'm not sure but it would be worth sending an email to check. This product is applied with water and can be help with a hair dryer. But allowing it to naturally dry may be best.

I hope you get something. :028:

The product that Tony uses is 3M Ventureshield.

It is applied by spraying water containing a small amount of detergent ( "Fairy Liquid" )
onto the panel, and ( after peeling off the backing paper ), onto both sides of the Protective Film.

The Film is placed in position and can slide around because of the water, until the position is just right.

A rubber "squeegee" ( block ) is then used to push out the water from under the film,
which then sticks itself onto the panel. 

The film is quite tough and can be pulled back off and re-positioned several times
to get it in just the right spot, and can be stretched slightly to fit curved surfaces.

Instructions are provided with the kits he sells for "DIY" installation.

There's a video clip showing how the film is applied on the 3M Venture Shield Web Site
