    @barbagris, what size are the clamps around your fork tubes?? I have been thinking something like this too.

    Thanks!

    Mine are original EARLY Triumph clamps. Later models I think were rubber lined. They are 60mm I think - but I'll check - I also have my fork legs skinned in Adhesive backed Flexible fibreglass sheet.

    My two cents. I made a set of lowers out of clear plastic. Not the finished look I was looking for. Most important, in hot weather I had coolant overheating. I didn't restrict the air in the radiator. The lovers on my forks must have changed the air flow enough in the front to cause high engine temps. Hard to believe but as soon as I removed the lowers, the coolant issue was solved. On a good note, the lowers kept the cold and rain off my legs.

    59mm clean - 60mm with skins.
