The foam don't polish up so well.

True.  But the silver gives a nice "GS" look :007:

Just when I think I have all the tools I need I go to install the bars and realise the tits at triumph have used torx bolts and I haven't got a big enough driver.

Got the bit, will fit bars tomorrow, does anyone know the torque settings? Not a problem if not but would be nice to know the ones for the engine mounting bolts.

The silly part about it is that Heed replace the Torx screws with Hex ones so you need both kinds of drivers.
There is a sticky with torque settings in the service section.

I had to go out and spend a fortune on Torx heads and extension bars to get my H&B bars on.  Pain in the ass it was!

As for torque - no idea.  I don't have a torque wrench   I might get a little digital one though, the one that goes between the tool and the socket.  Be a good portable tool.

Hi . Just trying to fit the right hand set of bars to my Tiger 800 and  am finding that the middle of  bottom fixing plate is in contact with what looks like an oil way. I have put the 9mm spacer on the forward bolt but the plate is rocking on the engine? Anyone else found this problem please?

Do you mean right side as you are sitting on the bike or right side as you face the bike (aka the left side)?

And what exactly do you mean by an oil way?

If you can clarify, I'll see if I can take a look at mine and send pictures if that would help? (Assuming it is full heed bars - mine are on a 2013 roadie)

Right hand side when sitting on bike. Picture hopefully shows bit of casting sticking out between the two fixing points. On checking the flatness of the lower fixing plate it has a noticeable curve at each end away from the engine which when the screws are tightened pushes the centre of plate in to touch engine. I think I will probably add some extra spacers to compensate. I wonder if this is a common problem and there are bikes being rode with this plate hard up against would could be a more delicate part of the engine.
