    Pannier Cover

    Hi, sorry if this is a daft question. One of my panniers is scratched and I was going to have it resprayed. I have seen colour coded pannier covers at World Of Triumph for 68 . I can't see the cost of a re spray being any cheaper than that. Now here's the daft question, when it says right hand side, is that as you sit on the bike? The Triumph badge seems really expensive at 30.82, has anyone removed the badge from their old pannier cover and re attached it to the new one. Many Thanks, Donald

    Yes, correct, on the bike your right is the same as the bike.
    To understand us, the brake levers are on the right.

    The Triumph badge and reflective reflector are included and installed on the saddlebag lid.

    I bought a pair of Phantom Black lids as spares (based on previous experience!) and the badges and reflectors were already fitted on the lids.

    I was in the same situation, panniers scratched pretty bad, from previous owner.
    It was cheaper to buy new covers, than the cost of paint and labor.

    Problem is, if Phantom Black, finding a new set. I luckily found some a early this year..

    Might get the spares vinyl wrapped as an extra set.

    If you order a new Lunar Silver Pannier Lid Assembly ( T2356090-MM )
    from your local Triumph Dealer in Edinburgh, it will be a few Pounds cheaper
    than ordering from World of Triumph.  :028:

    I agree.  The black ones are hard to find.  I was fortunate enough to buy a new pair from an owner who had sold his bike.  He himself had kept them "just in case"

    Many Thanks, cover now ordered. I also added the chrome Triumph decals to the tank, the bike will be looking really good. I just wish they had kept the bike on, a new updated with TFT and sharper look would have been great. Still don't want any other bile at the moment, had this one 6 years, longest I've ever kept a bike.

    Well, today I had to order another another pannier lid after my bike went down at a petrol station. I hadn't noticed the pool of diesel that I stepped off the bike into and when putting the bike onto the centre stand my boot slipped off causing me to lose control of it. The bike came to rest against the pump and the pannier scraped down the kerb. Lucky that was the only damage. The filling station is only 5 mins from my house so I didn't even have my phone on me to take pics. Two other bikers helped me get the bike upright. Then I noticed the diesel on the ground and I could see that the stand was covered with it from the sole of my boot. The supervisor at the garage was pretty good, she came out and took photos of my bike and the fuel spill before she covered it with sand to dry it up. I've sent Shell an email explaining everything and have asked if they or the garage owner could make a gesture of good will to pay the 68 for the new cover. I'm not holding my breath but this wasn't my fault.

    On a plus note, I'm off to Durness tomorrow, well, just 10 miles south to a hotel called the Richonich Hotel. Been going for years, well before that guy from the Scottish Borders branded the NC500. If you've never been north of Ullapool you have to go there. It's breathtaking and it never loses it's appeal.

    All the best, Donald
