Title: Crash Bars by Tralex
Post by: digital on January 19, 2020, 02:33:27 pm
Tralex is my friend and passed me photos and I have them on the PC.

Although this friend is from Leσn and I from Barcelona, ​​we have more or less a distance of more than 800 km. But we have met several times somewhere in between or we have traveled to Leσn, you can personally see his Trophy.

Here are the photos:

Great video and who needs to understand Spanish when he's explained it so well!

Top marks for this detail Digital. :028:

I for one would be interested in a group buy from Tralex if anyone else wants to do similar...

Just over eu400 would be around £350 plus.

Edit: Is the price for front and back bars Digital?

RocketSteve :

Mine were bought and cost just over € 400.

I think that was Digital's reference as to how much he paid for the R & G Bars,
not that these versions manufactured by his friend are for sale at that price - Are they ?

Title: Re: Crash Bars by Tralex
Post by: digital on January 21, 2020, 06:06:53 pm
No Cocunut, of course it is not that price.

I have asked for all the bars, rear and front and today he sends them to me. We haven't talked about the price yet because there is trust.
Title: Re: Crash Bars by Tralex
Post by: digital on January 21, 2020, 07:40:48 pm
I still haven't talked to Tralex about their protection bars.

From here I want to congratulate you.

To say, in my honest opinion, that it has nothing to do with the protection bars that I carry from R&G.

I had not seen the Tralex videos and now, after my workday, I started watching them.

I have observed with great attention that a reinforced tube is placed between the bar and the bar with which the right and left bar exert the force on that bar that only supports the motor without exerting direct force on the motor.

That is, in the case of an accident or fall of the motorcycle, the pressure force would run between bar and bar, not the engine.

In the case of the ones I carry, they are two independent supports for the right and left bar. In the event of a fall, the pressure force is transferred directly to the motor, since it lacks independent support that joins the two bars directly. As in the case of the Tralex design.

As I say, I have not talked to Tralex about this because I had not seen the videos, nor had I noticed when I saw his motorcycle.

It's true, about two years ago I ordered Tralex two rear bars, but ... (trust is a failure) hahahahaha.

So on Sunday I talked to him about wasap and asked him about the two rear protection bars and told him that I am also interested in the front protection bars so that they are of the same material and that mine is somewhat scratched.

Now that I've seen this video, I don't regret asking for the two front protection bars, I suppose it will be more expensive in price.

I agree with RocketSteve, no need to understand the Spanish language. Excellent videos re the fitting of front and rear bars. Thank you to both digital and of course Tralex, the maker/fitter of the bars, for posting these most informative videos. Cheers. :821: :158:

Looks like R&G sell just the front bars for £410 so we'll see what develops from Spain ~ but will probably be quite pricey with P&P etc...
Title: Re: Crash Bars by Tralex

Tralex will pass the price, he says he needs to ask about the shipping price to the United Kingdom and the United States.

  Hello everyone,

Maybe I could also find buyers in France (what is the shipping price in France and the price of the front and rear bars ?).

A very nice job.

Thank you so much  :152:

Whoever has the opportunity to have these bars in their hands will realize the good material that is made.

He has told me that he will enter the forum and give prices. You can take advantage to clarify any questions you have.

PD: It also brings all the necessary stainless steel screws and the two plates for the measurement of the right and left protection bar.
Title: Re: Crash Bars by Tralex
Post by: digital on January 22, 2020, 07:08:34 pm
It is surprising the robust material and a perfect finish.

When I arrived home this afternoon and opened the package, I contacted Tralex to congratulate him.

Post by: Tralex on January 23, 2020, 12:34:17 am
Hi guys!, it has been so long since I was here.
I see some of you have like my work, it is a promise I made with Digital a long time ago, that I would make him protection bars, and the day has arrived.
I've prepare a few other protection bars for some friends and I still have some left, but I can allways make more for  all of those who want them.
The price for the front bars is of 275€ plus shipment to your country.
The price for the rear bars is of 150€ plus shipment to your country.
The shipment for UK is about 22€ for both of them, and for France is about 18,50€ for both of the. For those who only want  the rear ones it will be a little less.

Everyone who is interested let me know.

Cheers!

Tralex, Please be kind enough to price just your rear bars with what you think shipping to the USA might be. Thanks so much! :169:
Title: Re: Crash Bars by Tralex
Post by: RocketSteve on January 23, 2020, 08:55:59 am
Hi Tralex, that's a very good price.
Can you add me to your list please.
Front and rear bars + post [eu447] converts to £378.

Hello everyone,

For all of those of US that are interested, I've been looking for shipping forms and for example shipping to AVI.INC direction (90250) it will be about 70€ plus custom duties for both bars, and of 60€ plus custom duties for only the rear ones.

For all of those of UK or France that are interested, If you could please provide me your e-mail and movile phone I would be gratefull (And the shipping company needs it), my e-mail is mototuningleon@gmail.com.

If you have any doubts do not hesitate in contact me by that e-mail direction.

Cheers!

Thanks for looking in to this Tralex - very impressed with your work. Currency rates will change daily, but as of right now it's about 1€ = $1.10. So here's the breakdown if you wanted to get the whole package to the USA:

Front bars at 275€ = $302.50
Rear bars at 150€ = $165.00
Shipping/customs at 70€ = $77.00

Total $544.50

Not bad at all considering they appear to be a much more sturdy offering than the alternative!

I have installed the rear protection bars. The necessary time has been 20 minutes.

As Tralex explains well in his video, the most complicated thing is to insert the embankment that goes to the right side, with the fingers of your hand, you must carefully move the brake fluid tube and some cables that pass there.

For those who do not understand the Spanish language, Tralex says perfectly that to install the rear bars, it is not necessary to remove the exhaust pipe or the rear wheel.


(https://cdn.img.triumph-trophy.com/trasera2abbe38fcb2614a2.png)

Once installed I can see that the rear bars are multifunctional.

1- In case of fall they protect the saddlebags.
2 - To tie packages that are supposedly placed in the back seat or just above the saddlebags.
3 - With so much that we have been talking to to raiseup the motorcycle and put the center stand. Well, a handle solution to raise the motorcycle to the center stand.
4 - In case the motorcycle is on the ground, we can lift the motorcycle by grabbing as I put in the following photo:

New bars (both sets) arrived this morning - rears were fitted with 1/2 hour of delivery.  :001:

Great quality and price!

Will get the front bars fitted in a few months when I strip her down for next service.

Post by: digital on February 02, 2020, 11:08:43 am
I am very happy that you like them, because I am proud to have Alex as a good friend and very professional in his teabajo.

I know it's not easy to do that kind of work. It has had to cost to make that design and everything very well calculated to the millimeter.

I want to add that Alex is very meticulous about jobs and doesn't stop until he's perfect. It does not support bringing it to the workshop and leaving loose screws or losing them or placing others that do not correspond to those of your motorcycle. From there he decided to have all his motorcycle repairs done.
Title: Re: Crash Bars by Tralex
Post by: digital on February 15, 2020, 05:06:44 pm
Today I installed the front fender bars.

Tralex designed these bars to the millimeter, they fit perfectly and the separation of the fairings is excellent.

(https://cdn.img.triumph-trophy.com/IMG_20200215_172503.jpg)

(https://cdn.img.triumph-trophy.com/IMG_20200215_172437.jpg)

I have not used the measuring separators to adjust the bars, I have put them without fairings by tightening all their screws and that was exactly my measurement. Then, I took out the bars and put the fairings.

(https://cdn.img.triumph-trophy.com/IMG_20200215_175637.jpg)

I have also put the screws that are attached to the motor, copper grease and tighten to 80 Nm.

These screws are attached to the engine (cylinder head), so they must be secured with a fixed or angled wrench from 17.

Nothing to do with the bars of the defenses that I bought years ago.

Excellent work Tralex.

Hi Digital,

After having seen your Trophy before you fitted these bars, your Trophy is no longer Trophy 2.0 but 3.0  :062:

Has anyone heard from or communicated with Tralex in the last few days?  I PM'd him yesterday to see if I could purchase a set of front and rear crash bars for my Trophy and have not heard anything back from him yet.  I don't want to buy a set of R&G Adventure bars until I hear something from Tralex.  Anyone have any experience with how long it took him to contact you back with purchase info?

Thanks!
Title: Re: Crash Bars by Tralex

Tralex does not go much to the forum, he is not very talkative.

Don't worry, I'll make it known by wasap.

Tralex is a good and honest person, besides being very professional in his work.

You will see that it is a very well manufactured material. Nothing to do with R&G.

For information and reassurance

12th May 2020
I contacted the supplier by email regarding the rear crash bars
They replied giving me the cost including postage to the UK.

13/05/2020
I paid for the bars and they confirmed shipping

18/05/2020
Bars arrived and I fitted to bike which took approx. 15 minutes.

Well impressed with service.

Post by: digital on May 23, 2020, 12:18:25 pm
The speed of reaching the bars is very good.

Normally when I order from the UK it takes me about 4-5days.

When I asked for the DAB + U, the UK came out in the afternoon and the next day, in less than 24 hours I had it in my possession. He was impressed. Of course, he must say that we were in the midst of a pandemic.
Title: Re: Crash Bars by Tralex
Post by: EXMX on June 05, 2020, 03:27:00 pm
Has anybody in the US ordered and received the crash bars from Tralex? I'm curious as to how long it takes to get the package from Spain. The last tracking update I received was 5/22/20 from Madrid. Of course I realize the pandemic has had widespread effects on everything.
Title: Re: Crash Bars by Tralex
Post by: Ade52 on June 05, 2020, 04:28:21 pm
Mine took about 1.5 weeks. but it was not down to Alex he provided a tracking number within a few hours of receiving bacs payment. According to tracker it stayed in Barcelona for a few days then moved to Finland via Bilbao (I think but definitely Bilbao to some other Foreign airport). Then parcel Force delivered them to my door without any other tracking information he told me they came from down south but not sure which airport. The tracking information was very poor, I even phoned Parcel force with tracking number and they did not even have the tracking info I had. If my work was not cancelled for the day I would have had to go to PO after receiving a card on door mat. Usual for PF but that just may be my local branch or driver not updating hand held. So don't worry you will get them and rear only takes 15mins to fit and are of equal quality to rg. This was in January before covid so may take longer.LOL

I got mine in 3 days from Spain to Knoxville, TN.  FedEx was the delivering carrier here in the US.  Seem to remember mine were routed through London, UK in route to USA.  I used a faster (ie. more expensive) mode of transportation as was my choice based on the alternatives offered by Tralex.  Don't think you should be worried about anything where Tralex is involved.  I found him to be a totally honest and dependable person to deal with during the whole transaction with him.

I just got my rear bars from Tralex, that I ordered only 4 days ago, also! I do already have the R&G bars on my se.
They rear bats are of very high quality construction & finish. I'll be installing them later today.
I paid by PayPal, & opted for expeditious shipping, at a very reasonable price, to get them here quicker than normal. All, quite worthwhile.
I hit the "fall over lever" one too many times, while making a low speed turn. That made my decision to get these.
I just wanted to reaffirm that Tralex is quite competent, reliable & responsive.

I am sorry that it took so long to arrive, you have had a lot of patience and I thank you. The same day I sent your package I also sent another one to Florida and it arrived in two weeks. Shipments to New York have been very slow, I guess because of the Covid19. When I saw that they took so long, I offered the option of a transport agency and the truth is that it is worth spending a little more money because it arrives in approximately 4 days.
Thanks again.

Hello friends, to contact me you can send me a private message right here on the forum and I will get a notice.
I have made new accessories for my motorcycle but I have not yet made videos to teach friends. Some have seen them on Facebook and have already gone crazy with content but there is still no official presentation.
Now I am in the hospital for a few days because I have a breakdown in my nose that requires surgical intervention, nothing serious, just the deviated septum. In a few days I will be at home and in the workshop again with my inventions. If you want any information do not hesitate to write, my hands work well lol.

Tralex is a trustworthy person, very responsible and professional.
He sent me a wasapp and he tells me that the operation has gone well for him, which I am very happy for.

 Lately it seemed like he had been in a boxing championship.

Just finished fitting the front and rear bars from Tralex. Could not be happier with them! After watching his videos fitting was a breeze, although if I spoke Spanish I might not have put the bar in the wrong way at first  :034: I've had bars on previous bikes that take away from the pristine appearance, but IMHO these actually add value, and might save me another new paint job if I ever slip over again :152:
Thanks Tralex

I think they're a good product, but not if you regularly ride without the panniers attached because then they look a bit odd. I'm also not sure whether they would fully protect the panniers in a fall over.  I suspect not, because it is the upper front edge that takes the hit.  My solution is to keep spare pannier lids "in stock"....but I did get them at a favourable price a while back  :002:

I had hesitated to buy the rear crash bars because my panniers were already scratched. Back in April I dropped the bike at a stop sign, and my left ankle was pinned under the bike.. it took me about 10 minutes to wiggle my foot out of my adventure boot. I believe the rear bars will prevent that from happening again, and I do have two new pannier covers ready to go on when I stop falling!   :008:

As I think no one has spoken about it to say if the Tralex bars would avoid scratching the suitcases and protect the bike from silly falls.

I think I was the first to test the Tralex bars ...

Yesterday we were working placing CCTV in a parking lot, when leaving the parking lot you have to exit through a fairly steep ramp. I don't know what happened to the Trophy that halfway through the ramp the throttle opened and it did not respond, it's like (if the motorcycle drowned) so as you can imagine, I fell with the motorcycle to the ground in the middle of the ramp .

I did not catch my feet under the motorcycle, neither were the suitcases scratched nor did anything break or scratch,

Only the defenses were scratched as you can see in the photos.

I'm super happy with the Tralex bars, with the old R&G bars, the motorcycle once fell to a standstill and the truth is that it caused a good destruction in part of the fairing and saddlebags.

Furthermore, in R&G bars, apart from being scratched, the bars are bent.

The Tralex bars, as you can see in the forums, have not bent at all and that when the motorcycle fell halfway down the ramp, the motorcycle was moving down the ramp.

I give the Tralex bars 100 points !!!

If they work, for silly city falls or for maneuvers while standing they work perfectly, I have fallen several times doing maneuvers and nothing but the bars is scratched. A little fine sandpaper and black paint to fix is ​​sufficient.

Good material, I already say that if they were the R&G bars they would have bent and theirs have not suffered bending and they have perfectly protected the suitcases.

I don't exactly understand what you mean by the fairings are off?

Post by: Mhodges1 on August 08, 2020, 04:21:50 pm
I had to take the fairings off to install the crash bars. So now I'm also going to do aux driving lights, back up xp module, and probably the air filter.

For what the spark plugs cost, you could also take advantage of and replace them.

I found this photo of when I had the R&G bars installed and as you can see in the photo, they are touching the fairing, between being poorly designed and a fall that I had while standing they stayed touching the silver ring of the fairing. I give the R&G bars a grade of 0.

My R&G bars don't touch the fairing.

Better not have the misfortune that the bike does not fall to the ground and you will see how they twist and touch the fairings.

I say this from my experience with R&G bars.

Another happy customer here of Tralex's rear crash bars. Two sets, actually; one for my bike and one for my dad's. Just installed them today and it couldn't have been easier.

Plus the shipping time from Spain to delivery in western Canada was only three days! (including transiting through New York)

Here's to Tralex! :821:
Title: Re: Crash Bars by Tralex
Post by: digital on August 09, 2020, 12:59:46 am
Glad to read this !!!

Luckily I know Tralex personally, not so lucky because we cannot see each other how we would like to, because we are about 1,000 km apart from each other.

But I am very proud to have a good friend and that all the votes towards him are positive.

This same night I went out to dinner with my lady and I explained to her that last Thursday my motorcycle fell when I went up the ramp of a parking lot where we had been working. Somehow and he's right, he has given me something for not explaining it to him, more than anything in case something had happened to me.

But I have already explained that naturally as it is a great motorcycle, no damage to me, nor to the motorcycle, for the latter because of the great Tralex factory bars, nothing that cannot be repaired as Tralex says with a piece of paper sandpaper and some black paint.

So in time you and your dad will be proud of the money invested in those crash bars.

I've already dumped my bike twice before (while stationary at least, so no sliding was involved) so I'm looking forward to having my panniers protected now.

I hope the motorcycle does not fall to the ground, unfortunately, we can never say that we will never fall again, it would be lying to ourselves, since the day we least expect it. The bike is going away and we cannot prevent it from falling to the ground.

As you have seen in the photos that pass, the suitcases have been well protected. I must add that the floor of the ramp is very rough cement and with protruding concrete pebbles.

Thanks Schindawg, back at ya'! I was looking around the forum and noticed yours and Redmerle in that lovely Candy Red. Nice. Mine was Phantom Black when I bought it, but the previous owner had dropped it on the left and then I dropped it on the right, so I decided since I was never a fan of black motorcycles anyway it must be Karma giving me the opportunity to change it :008: Took the parts to my local paint and panel shop and they did the rest. I love it! Maybe we should start a new thread on Custom Colours? :001:

Add me as another satisfied Tralex customer.  Payment from U.S. was easy, shipping took 5 days. The bars are a top quality product.  The videos made by Tralex were brilliant! Made the instillation go with out any issues.

I would highly recommend these if you are at all interested in crash bars to protect your Trophy.

Sorry but, just had to comment on the color of your your bike. This is one color (maybe a little darker teal) I'm considering on my bike.
Know its not for everybody but personally like it and definitely would get noticed while riding!

  Thank you for your help. Everything is installed, It took me about a day, I followed the wonderful video for removing the bike's outer body and after that, it was pretty straight forward. I would only make 1 suggestion I found it easier to pre-install the large crash bars. Line them up and torque them down in the correct position. Then remove the bars from the bike and install the outer body (fairing . Then put the bar back into place. I don't know if I'm being clear enough but it worked out great. The bars look great!!
Thank you for your help.What a beautiful well-engineered product. I recommend this product to all Trophy owners as a very reasonably priced insurance policy, because a drop can happen to anyone

Thanks Don, I'm very glad you like the bars. Now be careful and try not to scratch them, although it is better to scratch the bars than the fairings, the paint is easier to repair.
