Which crash bars.
« on: 11 January, 2020, 10:19:32 AM »
Morning all,

My 12 plate 1050se didnt come with Engine bars & it being in tip top nick Im terrified of it tipping over so thinking of fitting some crash bars.

Been hunting around the usual places.

Looking at either the SW-Motech or the Heed ones.
Heed look good & the price is excellent but can find little reference to them on here. Wondered if there was a reason for that. Anyone had any experience with the Heed bars they can share.

Cheers

I fitted Heed to my brother's 07  and to my 2014 TS Exellent fit and quality. downside is they have to come off to get the side lanes off. Having said that, I reckon when you've had them on/off a few times it's only going to add 20 to 30 minutes to any job.  :001:

World of Triumph was selling the OEM dresser bars for about 45.00. They look good & they are very easy to fit. Timbox may well still have a spare set for his non-existent TS  :187:

...and world of Triumph are no longer cheap.
Btw, these were for the earlier tiger 1050, but dresser bars fit all models of tiger 1050/sport with a couple of bolt lengths different
I got a full set of bolts for both versions when I bought my earlier ones

I bought a set of the heed crash bars from https://heedshop.eu/
For my 09 Tiger se. Total cost including shipping to Ireland was 153. Also included was a set of custom bags and a lower engine bar. Really well packed. Fitting is easy. Fit loosely at first then tighten up when everything looks in good shape.
Have to admit it gives the bike a different look some may or may not like. It dose have much more road presence though.

No problem mate. Heed built quality is 100%.
Probably not the most expensive item you will buy, but it will change the look of the bike significantly so be 100% before you buy.
Happy shopping
