I ordered a set of Upper Crash Bars from Heed on Monday morning and they arrived today Thursday before 11am. Superb service.
The frame Torx bolts are T59
0.

Two screws in my full crashbars are 6 size and one is 7. I also believe we all mean hex type not torx :)

The original Triumph bolts in the frame that have to be removed are Torx. Size 50. Note my typo above,repeat T50.
The replacement bolts supplied by Heed are conventional Allen head.

I fitted my Heed Upper Crash bars; Triumph lowers already fitted.
The bolt that secures the bars through the frame into the engine took a lot of puff to get the Heed Upper bar bracket near the frame mounting point.
The RHS was not as difficult but in both cases the Heed upper bars do not seem to have the geometry quite right.
Any other Heed owners care to comment.

I helped a mate fit some and had similar problems.
It's down to heat distortion caused by poor and rushed welding practices IMO

I suspect you are correct. The drawing is probably spot on but the bars "spring" when taken off the jig.
I sent an email to Heed but I guess all they can say is send them back if you are not happy. and

Hi All, I have just fit these bars to my 2018, 800 Low Ride Height, ENGINE GUARD CRASH BARS HEED TRIUMPH TIGER 800 / XC / XR (2015 - 2018) - Bunker ( Full one piece ), the only problem I found was fitting the top cross piece, when finally done they look quite good I just hope that I don't have to use them.

I have received my HEED crash bars need to ask a couple of questions:

1. Are the two Tork T50 screws fitted with LOCTITE? If so, any ideas on loosening?

2. Are they easy too fit, is there a fitting order?

Thanks for your answers guys

Have a good Chrimbo,
Steve

 :187:  :164: Steve ---- read the posts just above yours.
But further to that -- my Triumph Torx 50 bolts "cracked" loose quite nicely with a 300mm breaker bar. There was something on the threads but I hesitate to say it was a Loctite type product.
I had enough of a problem putting the replacement bolts in to bother about Loctite.
