    I changed mine last week. Tourances had 6300 on them and noticed them providing less grip on the gravel. Time to go!

    Eager to hear about how you like the booster plug. Almost pulled the trigger on one, and then saw conflicting things about the power band across revs. So I'm kind of looking for a reason to pull the trigger...

    Ill keep you posted. They made a great difference on my ducati so I’m hoping for similar results. My mech has the triumph tuning software so hopefully that’ll give him an idea on how she reacts to it, especially in combo with the new exhaust.

    Enjoy the upgrades!

    Zard Low. With a sweet custom side cover.

    Looking good! The Zard low mount is not compatible with the Triumph engine guards, correct? Are there engine guards out there that are compatible with this exaust?

    The only one's that I believe work with for sure with the Zard are the Givi TN6410 Engine Guards for various Triumph Bonnevilles. They just happen to be angled the correct way to fit with the Zard low exhaust. Other similar guards won't fit. I have not installed them yet but lined them up and they will fit. I will post photos once installed with the Zard Low Exhaust. I am also using the Triumph case protection and axle sliders.

    I bought mine from Fortnine in Canada.

    I actually bought the Triumph Dresser bars way before I realized I wanted the Zard Low Exhaust so I will take a look to see just what is causing the issue with fit, in case anybody cares.

    I am curious to see what they look like. i already have the Triumph dresser bars, and I am kinda thinking about putting the low exaust, but not loving the idea of not having engine guards.

    Was hoping you may have tried the BAAK Bobber twin shorties on your XE. ;)

    That BAAK is super sharp. Curious if it has a spark arrester in it. We found that a Bonnie / Thruxton side cover won’t fit our Scramblers. I was curious if I could mount one of those in place of the supplied Zard bag they included. The tabs don’t line up at all and there’s a whole bunch of electronics behind the cover as well.
    Sidenote, the seat cover came out great.

    Hey Chris, how are you liking the Zard low exhaust so far?

    I'll likely buy those TN6410's as soon as I've seen them on your bike and know for sure they fit, so please do post pics when you can.

    Cheers.
