These arrived today....fitted them in around 2 minutes....they seem good quality and come with rubber strips to prevent them slipping down the forks....they are pre split at the back for different size forks and cable tie unobtrusively on....time will tell if they are any good or not but thought I'd post it up ....if they haven't been posted already! They have good reviews....any thoughts or experience with them always appreciated 👍

They look good for the price. What do they charge for delivery?

Free if purchased with goods £25+...or....(I just typed it into the site again) and normal delivery is £1.45.....there are various other options but that's the cheapest.

That's a good price. They look similar to the Triumph ones a few people have (including me) although those bolt in place instead of using cable ties.

To be fair...I would prefer bolts a'la triumph but for the money cable ties will do☺

this is my test print on my 3D printer, it only cost 18p in materials for 25% of the size and will cost about 70p for the full size version when I do print it, it'll also be smoother.IMG_20180315_112339%5B1%5D.jpg

Can any one with a vernier caliper tell me the outer diameter of the top of the black tube of the forks of a nc750x where the fork protector would sit so I can attempt a 3D print? I am still too unwell to go out and measure it myself but am so bored stuck in side! :blink:

Eek the Triumph ones (Triumph Fork Protectors Kit #A9641010) that I ordered from a Triumph dealer and paid £5 for are now listed everywhere at £41.

That's quite a price hike. I did think they were good value at a Fiver but £41??

Wow that is a massive hike, but puts emphasis on me using my 3D skills and printing my own especially if they only cost under a quid in material :D

There was clearly a bit of a cook-up on their pricing, and the jump was also a bit wrong. If you look at the separate parts you can get the shields for £8 odd each. Not sure if they come with fixings like that, but you could source suitable stainless nuts/capscrews from the auction site for a few pence.

I seem to recall someone found  a seller of the Triumph parts on the auction site for sensible money.

Just got a pair off "the bay" for 99p....

Cut the back and drilled a small hole either side and then tied together with wire to hold in place.

Worked a treat and was surprised after a 40 mile blast now dirty they got.

Have just found that World Of Triumph (hope I'm not breaking forum rules) has the fork protectors kit reduced from £41 to £12.30, that is £16.80 delivered. Just ordered a set.

are not the same. Ordered them previously and had to return them. They have no screw fitting at all, require to drop forks to slide them from the top. Also the upstand is much closer the the fork. Triumph rep told me the schematics on the website were as a guide only and were not intended for technical use.
