Installed my Craftride crash bars getting rid of the old bendy OEM bars and put on a Jack B Quick. They did not play well together. The rear JBQ fit fine but the front was way wide even with the spacers provided. So I had to use spacers from the Craftride kit and the JBQ. So then had to buy some longer bolts to make it work. I have told someone they can have my old bars but don't remember who. If your that person message me and I'll ship them to ya.

Jardines are very distinctive both in looks and sound. I bought mine from my good friend John Wilmoth @Native One on the other forum but they were just a wee bit too loud for me so I sold them. Sadly, John passed away from lung cancer a couple of years ago. You met him at that Cascade Salvo Steve.

Breeze the old bars were old Triumph bars that you could bend by hand. When I got the bike it had hiway pegs on the bars. First time I put my feet on them I felt them bend. After that took the pegs off.

That's why I got the Rivcos for my 07 Classic. I have Triumph bars on my 09 Touring and they are very sturdy. That's a fine looking rad cover you have there

In retrospect I should have made more of an effort to get the baffles out to do just that. I can't recall what the issues were but it seems they were stuck fast in the mufflers. Jardines made a very fine exhaust system for the Rocket and it's a shame they discontinued them.

My Jardine muffles now breath a lot better as the header won’t cope with 230hp
