Good day All,
Looking for a luggage rack for the R3T.
Just the rack itself and it doesn’t have to be in perfect condition.
My back rest is off a 2017 R3T.. I’m assuming they are all pretty much interchangeable.


Thank you

Search and keep an eye on eBay. Note that the tack for the thunderbird is the same. That is how I found mine.

Which Thunderbird version did you get and use @Jay, Part number please?

There are a few to get confused over and the Thunderbird LT 2015/16 version from the Quick Detach Sissy Bar does not get a mention at all in the Fowlers UK Triumph parts fiche - which is weird. I thought they were the same as the 'Special Edition' Thunderbird but that was in fact a 2010/11 only model with a fixed rack and different part numbers. It gets confusing.

Note also that different model Thunderbirds have different tire/wheel combinations and sizes and I am pretty sure the TB LT is a different wheel size and likely frame to the other TBs.
A Cycle World explanation:
2014 Triumph Thunderbird Commander- First Ride Review- Photos- Specs

the basic Commander, which we can’t call a stripper because nothing has been left off exactly, but the fancier rig, the LT (for Light Touring), has a windscreen and bags.
A9758068 R3T
A2306380 R3T & Thunderbird Commander/LC
A9758189 Thunderbird Commander/LC


These MAY match:
A9750570 Replaces A9750517 Thunderbird (1600/1700)
A9750517 Thunderbird (1600/1700)
T2305992 THUNDERBIRD (1600/1700) special-edition-only 2010/2011

The R3T rack was actually known under two part numbers.

1 Luggage Rack Kit A9758068

And then the other versions (some to be confirmed as exact same) with same and different part numbers but which have same appearance and some associated part cross-fitment. The connections are sometimes buried as some out of production parts and/or accessory/'special package only' versions get deleted from the model search functions and have to be found via back doors.

Thunderbird rack versions:

Another two part numbers but note identical number to the R3T version above.

I actually have one I'd sell for $75 US. Although even being right next door in Washington State the shipping cost would probably be prohibitive. I can take some pictures if you'd like.

@Ishrub , the part number on the rack I bought is A2306380.
Thanks yep that is the same part number as our R3T and is now also unavailable from Triumph UK but may be left as NOS at some dealers.

I will see how good the match is with the identical appearance A9750570 Triumph Genuine Thunderbird Chrome Luggage Rack I just bought. There are a few in Oz and more at Triumph UK. Au$187.50 (US$127) new in Oz.
