Just beware that the lower plate is about as thick a a sheet of paper.

Have had to weld up both of my last time it had a 2mm thick plate added.
Mounted the dresser bars and they are as poorly made as the OEM engine guards, can't figure out why Triumph would make bars that are intended to protect as nothing more than decoration. I replaced the OEM engine guards with aftermarket guards that are strong but it seems OEM is the only option for the dresser bars.

When I bought mine one of the engine guards were welded, shame on Triumph for producing a decorative guard instead of one that might work.

I have let mine fall several times w/o damage so they have saved my bacon many times.
When u climb back on a bike like a rocket it dont take long to realize when u get old your balance sucks.
I just keep on praticing lol

Remember they do call them 'Dresser bars' afterall, but yep, the rear ones do bend but they do protect and are very easy to bend back. When they bend they absorb shock without snapping things and with the soft leather panniers they do their job admirably but would not protect hard bags too much, except a gentle tipover or two.
