I have even asked Divya Saran about it he also agreed with me not to install it and it has the unwanted weight and might reduce the mileage . So should I buy it tomorrow or just leave it ? My previous bikes - Discover 100m / Karizma R 2014 did not had any leg guard (karizma does not have/bajaj bike was not provided).
    Sure go for it, install crash guard ASAP. But first look at my crash guard (picture attached) it is simple and looks cool on TB this weigh around 2.5kg, therefore mileage will not be an issue here. don't buy that three bar curved (curved towards driver) crash guard it looks bad on thunderbird (but good for Bullet standard/classic). Also my crash guard is having Royal enfield marking on sides which looks cool & it cost me approx 2000 rs (i have attached pictures, sorry for bad photography)

    Keep thumping

    Officially RE has no approved guard for TBTS. The showroom and service centre guys try to sell the standard Triple guard (as they call it) for all bikes. These are chrome plated and not essentially 100% stainless steel.

    Also in case of TBTS, foot pegs being slightly forward than Classic and other model, the standard triple may hinder the foot movement. And if you observe, the clearance between the wheel and chassis of TBTS is slightly lesser than that of Classic and other models, hence whichever crash guard you chose install, should be such that it wont hit the mudguard in case the bike goes through extreme potholes/ditches.

    Thank you for your information but I decided not to choose the guard . First - I did not got the money from the atm Second - While installing the person was trying to change the setting of the cables in front Third - As there is no built in clamp to hold the guard so they were installing in the hanging manner which I doubt about it stiffness Fourth - Without the guards all the RE looks reallllly awsome in comparison to any bikes -except Triump and Harley Davidson.

    Andrew I was unable to get the guard because of shortage of money of ATM.

    Keep it in your priorities of TO BUY items as soon as you get some cash.

    Looks of bikes need to be preserved in case of a crash, or in parking lots where bikes parked too close will scrape. If you want the crash guard to not cause hindrance with the appearance, then go for a jet black powder coated guard, those blend in with the bike.

    Check out 'BUTB2013 T.BIRD CRASH BAR NEW 350/500cc' at Quality Metal Industries Products - Crash Bars. Its bottom is split and narrow to better suit the TBTS model. That's the one a mechanic demonstrated to me which didn't easily come close to the mudguard even after front shocks were severely and vigorously depressed.
