2016 thruxton 1200
To make a long story short, I am looking to make my thruxton more tour worthy. I want to find triple trees that accept regular handle bars and want to attach hard bags, or at least a hard bag support or mounting system. I am weary of purchasing bonnie parts because of possible slight frame geometry differences, differences in rear fender shape, steering head angle differences, etc. I do not want to waste hundreds of dollars on experimentation. Has anyone made any of these mods successfully and know for a fact that they work? Any tips on where to find the parts?

It’s a 2018
Your going to bump into cables and Hydraulics to short.
Can't help on top and bottom Triple Trees.
Norton / Vincent Flat bars are the Go
If the Top Yokes are thick enough , get some after market Yoke Bar Clamps. Try Up Market Enduro Shops., not cheap Asian stuff.

It looks like you have the lower clip-ons on the bike (come with the fairing). Have you thought about putting the stick clip-ons back on? They'll give you about an inch or more rise.
