    Looking for some assistance from my R3O crew to help me identify a possible Triumph part number of the crash bars pictured. I’m not certain as to what year R3 they’re from. The one pictured is designed differently from the currently available bars for both R3R and R3T.

    Looks like the old Rivco set which were darn good. Not OEM Triumph although better.

    Yep and @Rocket Scientist can probably confirm as I seem to remember him testing a set of them deer slaying and still has them.

    I’m looking for these as replacements for my 2008 R3T. The left side has a bit of rash on it and I want to replace it with some new bling.

    There is nothing wrong with the current Rocket engine guards. :thumbsup:
    They saved my legs in two crashes!
    My big crash a few years ago destroyed the left bar - I had to buy a new set.
    Just this summer I had a minor crash that destroyed the right bar and radiator.
    Now on my entire second pair :D

    I wholeheartedly agree, they are there for a purpose. Those who ride without a set on their bike are subjecting themselves to possibly more extensive damage to both machine and body.

    There is a difference however in the tube O.D. Triumph crash bars are 1.250” and Rivco are 1.000”

    Case solved, now I can sleep well knowing who manufactured them back in 2008. Thanks to the fine R3O detective work.

    So is that your set in the picture, or are you looking for a set ?
