Repair/Modify of the bash plate mounts
on: July 31, 2017, 06:39:09 AM
Well, after seeing some pictures of broken front mounts for the bash plate, I can now add mine to the list. Triumph has made the front mount very weak and it can fail without much force.
I bought some 1/8 inch plate steel and made some new brackets for it. They mount on two (slightly longer now) oil pan bolts and the top lip rests on the crash bar mount for even more stability. The mounts are far more sturdy, and I will find out if it is sturdy enough soon.  :001:

Has this repair worked? I just broke the rear mount and am considering how to fix this going forward.

Yes, still going strong. No issues and I have definitely hit things with the bash plate.

Glad to know you’re testing them out! I am still looking for replacement mounting solution and would love measurements if you can share.
