Good luck. The guy is in japan. Don't let that keep you away. It's all legit.
That is the exact set up I used too. EB kit with Oxford grips. Half the cost of stock and works great! Jim Davis the owner of EB is legit and his stuff is the highest quality. Shipping from Japan is not bad in terms of price and time. I've used his products on a number of bikes and have never been disappointed.

No Part number for handle bar end

Hit a deer and broke the right bar end. There is no part mumber for it, so I welded it and it is working fine. Other option was to get a new bar...$100+ for OEM or $125 for black. As well machined as this part is, one would think they'd have a separate part number you could order. Not as of now.

+1

I've used Jim's products on three bikes now and couldn't be happier with them. Great stuff.

The deer cleaned out everything in front of the forks except the instrument pod and windshield. It was relatively simple to screw on the new plastic parts to make it whole again. Front tire, wheel, brakes and forks all survived without problems. It works perfectly.

I found excellent service from Triumph central warehouse. Parts were here in about three days. Also, they used ample thread locker at the factory. I was impressed.

Nine ribs and some road rash and six weeks of recoop and I'm good. 2k on the bike since rebuild. Lv it.

Excellent. Glad you're all fixed. Could have been a lot worse by the sound of it.

PM me with your email, and I'll send you the Owner's Manual on PDF. That way, you can study it before your bike arrives.

To paraphrase the old saying.....Just say yes. And welcome to the Tigers' cage on Friday.

I will admit, I wonder why they omitted an ambient temperature display. The sensor is part of the FI system, why not just throw a number up on the screen?
