    Don't look for parts #, look for the gaiters diameter. On Ebay, you want to search for "Triumph T100 / Thruxton Hinckley gaiters" up to year 2013.
    Some sellers indicate the diameters, like this one for instance: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Fork-Gaiter...item5b3e467861

    As you can see, the top diam is 40mm, it will stretch easily over the 43mm RS fork tubes. Same for the 60mm bottom diam, I think the RS is a tad larger than that (62mm I think) but once again the rubber will stretch enough to be fitted.

    I found many Triumph fork gators on eBay, but none matching T2044087 number. Some other nomenclature to take me to the correct ones on eBay would be most helpful... if only to state those that fit a particular Triumph model perhaps....

    I confirm, these are Triumph gaiters indeed. Mines are not from Triumph (I mean they are manufactured or sold by Triumph) though, I bought them as pair from a dude in England, he regularly sell those on Ebay. My current project bike has forks of the same diameter and I bought a couple of pairs from him a few monts ago.

    I know these work, Aussie Bobby Dyer has them on his R* on FB. Triumph fork gaiter part # T2044087 they sell as singles.

    That's a fine lookin' bobber... my favorite style of bike.

    I'd like to put fork gaitors on one of my R*s... Did you get the right sized ends, for a good fit... and, if so, what ends should I be shopping for?

    Sorry for the late reply Sam, I had to jump back onto another build project and didn't check the Clinic in a while.

    I dug up the block from my Ebay history, it is this model:

    https://www.ebay.com/p/171244626?iid=233159104393

    Obviously it is not a direct fit on the engine mount, I fabricated a very simple bracket to piece them together. What I like with this mount is that is allows to fit the ignition key (or ignition button if you fancy this style) and the Mikuni choke. Let me know if I can be of any further help.

    31t front pulley is the best bang for the buck, it's like adding a set of performance cams.. only use Barons, not the cheap aluminum ones

    Thank you for the feedback gentlemen, it is highly appreciated.

    Clke, thank you for the kind words mate, I really like your bobbers too. That being said, no, it doesn't haul asses at all and that's one of the reasons I've joined the Clinic, I'll need your valuable help to sort out where my performance issues come from. I'll post a thread detailing the situation later today if I find the time.

    Lug Nut, I got a few vids laying around, I'll try to find and post them so that you can check the sound
