    R & G radiator & front pipes guards.

    I think that these are a great idea & a must basically, before I order them, is there even another option for me to look at?

    I'd like their crash bars too but again, anyone else make a different style of crash bars?

    I'm thinking of ones that would fit lower down, wrapping around the engine so that the bike would rest on them if you toppled over. I'm thinking of what's fitted to the Goldwing for example.

    Will the R&G ones save the brake & gear lever if the bike falls over for example??

    Good morning, earthman - I installed the RadGuard radiator guard on my bike.  http://www.radguard.com.au/products/triumph-trophy-se-2012-2016-radiator-guard.html (I don't have any ties to them).

    It comes in black or polished alloy - Mine is black.  I think that it gives the bike a more finished look.  I hoping that it'll cut down on the amount of debris that sticks to the radiator - bugs, flora, etc., of which we seem to have a lot of in this part of the world.

    https://www.triumph-trophy.com/index.php/topic,5086.0.html - installation was a snap.  :028:

    Er, thanks for the reply fellow Trophy owner, I'm hoping that there is other options that are closer to home? Lol

    They do ship internationally - I don't know how long it took to ship from Australia to the USA, as my wife ordered it for me - I like the installation method better than that of the R&G.

    There are also several on the forum that have made their own - shouldn't be too hard as there's not much to it.

    I made my own using anodised, expanded aluminium mesh and some simple Car Door edge trim for less than 15 the set....

    Pure-Triumph has them. I believe they are in Florida.
