Thread reproduced with the express permission of Mistress K

Chrome Triple Tree

First I stripped off the stock risers, getting getting my husband Tanker to hang onto the bars for me



Tanker seems a little confused as to why the forks won't turn for him Wink

Time: 15 minutes
Tools needed: torque wrench, 19mm socket, 6mm hex socket, flat bladed screwdriver & a friend or family member

Instructions:
Cover your tank and front fender with a towel first! crank the bars all the way over in one direction, then get the 19mm socket on your torque wrench from the rear of the front end and crack the riser bolts loose from the bottom of the triple tree clamp, but do not remove the bolts yet as they are torqued to about 50 foot-pounds, so adjust your wrench accordingly.
Use the flat bladed screwdriver to carefully prise off the chrome hex drive bolt covers on the riser caps, and then use the 6mm hex socket to remove the riser caps. have your assitant hold the bars while you switch back to the 19mm socket and completely remove the bottom of the stock risers.
Save the washers from the top and bottom of the triple tree clamp! your helper may find it easier to hold the bars out of the way if you carefully snip the cable ties that bind the wiring to the bars.

Next I installed the triple tree cover, after putting an iron cross decal on it front and centre



Lookin' pretty sweet!

time: 5 minutes
tools needed: willpower, towel, rubber mallet (persuader)

instructions:
Seat the rear side of the cover first, as you will have to use some force to get it over the ends of the triple tree clamp bolts (the bolts threaded horizontally into the triple tree that stick out just a little directly behind the forks). then push the front on as well. lay the towel over the cover (to avoid any scratches or other marks), then use your mallet to tap it into place. it should sit just about flush with the triple tree itself

Mistress Ks bike is the only intruder that I have seen the Chrome triple trees on which I am shocked about as they look so bloody good I have not seen them advertised either Suspect
