BMW R NINE T R 1200 GS THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR COVER

The object of making this cover was to keep as small and snug fitting as possible maintaining strength to protect throttle potentiometer and conceal connector harness. I wanted an alternative to the erector set (Mechano) look that requires a stack of spacers and overly long screws.
Fits 2006-2014 fuel injected boxer models. Not liquid cooled.
Gloss Black





Burnished finish

TRIUMPH BONNEVILLE THRUXTON SCRAMBLER PLUG & PLAY FENDER MOUNT LAMP KIT

So you now own a gorgeous Triumph with a hideous tail light. Don't want to be seen on Main Street with that on board. Whatcha gonna do?
                                What can you do?
Well there are some kits available constructed from a piece of bent up plate that show all the wires hanging out the back of the lamp.  But ....No flexibility in tail lamp choice....No style..... No upgrade.
If you have the tools, time and skill you can always make something fit and drill some holes in the fender, fiddle around with the wires, blow a fuse or three and waste a weekend.

Here is a little trick way to slick your license plate with a stock fender set up. Might not be the best                            idea if you live in a state that's main revenue is writing traffic tickets.
With hacksaw or cutoff disc slice 7/8" either side of bracket. Can be bent fairly easy or gently formed with a hammer. I found a 2 1/2" radius worked.

Desert racer style (Thruxton/Scrambler fender). Reduced to width of fender and easily read.

Triumph Thruxton Cafe Racer Aluminum Seat Cowl





Now available! Aluminum Thruxton seat cowl. Fits stock oem seat and are a replica shape of stock cowl fastening in the same manner. Much better form and accuracy than formed sheet metal.
If you have no plan on selling your Thruxton it might be a good investment. Not sure how long plastic cowls will last. Mine already has a crack. Also if you don't like the checks or stripe this is a good option as painting is expensive and a lot to invest on a plastic base.
 Also fits direct on a Scrambler seat giving some extra storage space. It has no more than 1/2" gap at top front and looks acceptable. See pictures with white piping.
 Converting Bonneville/Scrambler to a cafe style this is a good option. Polished to perfection.
I can also supply as just shell to which could be adapted for any any seat.
