I dont think it can be done mate. R&G (UK) are pretty much the best out there and if they have to drill it then its gotat be done. Dont bother with stupid motrax or equivilant mushrooms its more trouble than its worth!!!
Thanks for the info folks, here's some in return. My local dealer, Red Dog have some made up which fit to the top mounting behind the engine so 'no drilling' £50 the set, they've put a set aside for me. I'll take a photo when they're on so you can see what they look like.
By the way. I've now had my Tornado a week, despite some of the stories I read I decided to go a head and buy one (I won't go into the delivery and DVLC delays!). Loved the look of them since they first came out but took a demo a few weeks back and REALLY loved it. And with the deals on offer at the moment, well just had to do it!
Got to say it's the only bike I've had that draws such attention from everyone! Even none bikers stop and look!
Best comment from a girl so far about the fans at the back "are they to cool you down as you go along?"
Before the demo, I thought it wouldn't live up to the GSXR1000 I've had for a couple of years but no worries. It's the way it produces the power for me that does it. For road use at least it's exactly where and how you want it.
Can't wait to finish the running in to get the full experience of the demo version.
Marcho, please get some piccies ASAP please as I am interested in how they are fitted. I was about to go and order a set from R & G, but seeing the comments about them not even being produced yet, I guess that is a non starter!
I was looking for bungs for my RS. Was told R & G did them but only drilled fairing.
Took the bike to BSD and the enginer said that he wouldnt want to fit them the the engine mounts (above the pegs) as it'd restrict foot movement etc..
Left with paying £100 for R & G who aparently had a problem with the mounting bolts for theres so they had to stop production and recall all the sets. All sorted now (aparently...though I just go on what the shop tell me)
Guess wot, the R&G bungs don't fit the TRE as i was told they would. Dealing with Howard at R&G and he's sending me wot i need to alter them to get them to fit, with a little help from vtxbrit modifying my engine mount bracket for me (top man) !
Hi Chaps, got my crash bungs fitted on the tre eventually, needed 1mm taken from the inside of the engine mount bracket & a little modification to the RS crash bung kit from R&G. You don't have to drill the air ducts, but you have to drill 25mm holes in the lower fairings. Would post pictures but can't work out how to do it, so if someone can advise i've got them on my laptop ready !
They look quite tidy there marcho but are you sure that they'll do the job that they're meant to do situated where they are? If you look at the pics in Gary's link above then those really look as though they will save a fair bit of damage to the bodywork should things go tits up:\ Still, having some protection is better than having nothing at all
