    Pannier lids

    I mentioned recently how the availability of pannier lids seems to be less and less, especially the Phantom Black colour.  I bought a pair at a good price a few months ago from someone who had also kept a spare pair "just in case", so I'm sorted...unless I drop the bike twice on the same side  :002:

    Anyway to cut a long story a bit shorter I spotted a pair of new unused pannier lids in phantom black on a well known UK auction site for 85.  Or a single one for either side, 45 or 55 depending on which side.  The prices include delivery so could be of interest to someone in this forum.

    I have nothing to do with the seller.

    When you say 'availability is less and less' aren't they available from Triumph? There are a bunch of bikes that use these bags, and here in teh US anyway, there are still dealers with new Trophies on the sales floor to sell. Have they discontinued the part?

    Last time I talked to my dealer all Trophy body skins were readily available.

    Although I do think the supply will shrink up but that said, with 30k miles on my discontinued model bike I'll only replace plastic that's broken.  With the use I have had and remaining value it's just not worth it to me.  Of course, ymmv but I believe those body panels won't go as quick as you would think.

    I went through Bike Bandit and it took 2.5 months to get a pacific blue lid.  Ordered in June and got it in September.  Don't know why it took so long.  Same thing for the rear brake pivot bolt.  Think you can guess why I needed these 2 parts.  I had to make a pivot bolt out of the remains of the the original to keep riding.

    The pivot bolt mod will end that problem for you.  I keep thinking I need to order a set of blue covers and just keep procrastinating, so I guess when I eventually do they won't be available. :009:

    I feel your pain with Bike Bandit! I will NEVER use them again for ANY parts. Waited 7 weeks for a Triumph connector and an inner fairing piece from them and never got them. Only received their automated emails reminding me that I did not have my parts yet!  :435:

    Finally cancelled the order and purchased them thru Hermys and got them in 3 weeks! Only took that long because the inner fairing piece was on backorder with Triumph in the UK! Hermys had the wiring connector in stock! :152:

    The part was on backorder from Triumph for the 7 weeks too. None of the above delays have anything to do w Bike Bandit.

    If a part is back ordered from the oem, they can't magically conjure one.

    That was the question that started this thread.  Are parts going to continue to be available?  First they are back ordered and then at some point they can't be found.  You can expect the few aftermarket parts that are specific to the Trophy to dry up.  I purchased a radiator grill.  I was lukewarm to having the grill but thought if I decided I wanted one later on it might not be available.
