Finned Timing Covers

FYI - I was just having at look on Square Deals website and I came across some finned timing covers by Motone Customs which I haven't seen before. Of course if you go with these you're going to want matching covers for the other side, which don't seem to be available yet but I'm sure they'll be the pipeline.

Yeah, the Motone Facebook page showed a prototype of the cover on the other side of the bike. These look pretty badass!

While I get the appeal, I think there are just too many fins and detracts from the overall look of the engine.
I just love the polished/satin look of the OEM covers.
Just my humble opinion, of course.

I completely agree, it's the bane of Bobber ownership, if only Triumph had made 'em with substandard poorly designed parts then life would be so much easier! As it stands finding aftermarket parts that are as good or better than OEM is tough! Even the stock exhaust looks and sounds great, how many modern bikes can you say that about?

Then you probably wouldn't have bought the bike .

These were available for the air cooled 865, looked sh*t on them as well.
The classic style & engine are a major part of our retro bikes, fins are ok on sharks but not on timing & clutch cases.
no no no & NO

Yeah... I'm in the "I don't care for the look" camp too. I like the authenticity of the smooth cases.

I've spent my fortune on wine, women, and motorcycles. The rest I wasted on everything else.

Iím afraid on this occasion I have to agree... a step too far in the wrong direction in my opinion!
