    There are numerous possibilities !

    First, check that the correct Fuse is in use - it should be rated at 15 Amps.  :169:

    It's impossible to diagnose remotely with just that information,
    but possible causes of the Fuse blowing could include :

    A wiring fault where a wire has been chafed and may be shorting out to Ground.

    A fault within the TES Module ( under the Right Side cover with an "NTouch" label on it )

    A fault within one of the TES adjustment motors.

    Seized Rear Suspension Unit Lower Links preventing the free movement
    of the Rear Suspension Unit when it attemtps to adjust or calibrate.

    If you can provide more information about when the Fuse blows,
    such as at Ignition ON, or when the system is "Calibrating" ,
    or when you are adjusting the settings etc, that may help with the diagnosis.

    Cheers  :821:

    Hi
    The fuse blows once the engine has started and the system starts to adjust the suspension.
    It has been working fine for 88,000 kmís just started to play up a few days ago and it is my mode of transport to work.
    So any help would be great.

    Hi Hopper.  Welcome to the forum!  Mine started off as you describe, eventually getting to the point that the fuse would blow just by turning on the ignition.  Triumph did the diagnosis and stated that the suspension unit needed to be replaced, as they are not repairable.  I sent it off to a shock rebuilder and they replaced one of the adjustment motors.  It had frozen up due to corrosion.  Another Trophy owner I'm aware of also had his fuse blow just by turning on the ignition.  His was diagnosed as the TES module.  The good news is you can ride it without causing any harm; you just can't adjust it.

    As mentioned previously it could be the TES module or one of the adjustment motors
    ( the rear seems favourite ! ), but it costs nothing and is relatively easy to check
    that those lower rear suspension joints are all free to move and not seized,
    which could be putting extra strain on the motor trying to move them,
    and if they seize up completely can result in the lower Drag Link breaking !

    Thanks guys itís great to get some good advice, with ignition off, I have tried to replace the fuse and it blows as soon as I try to replace it.
    The Worksop manual tells me to take it to the dealer as it needs the triumph diagnostic tool hooked up.
    I will check the rear suspension movement tomorrow and if thatís good I will touch base with the dealer next week.
    Thank you for all you help on this issue.

    On another note the bike has always had issues mis shaping the front tyre, the true specialist had me increase front pressure to 40psi and I have still had to replace the tyres at 7,000km,s, any ideas on this issue.

    Keep us updated Hopper !  :169:

    With regards the Tyre issue, you might want to start a New Topic,
    or tag into one of the exisiting Topics in the Tyres and Wheels Section.
    ( Searching for "Cupping" will find a lot of Topics ! ).
