    1.  Recently bought a Trophy.  Dealer wants over 200 dollars to make a duplicate key.  Any other alternatives?

    2.  This is really a dumb question but do you have to have Blue Tooth or Sirus to play the radio?  I can't seem to just turn it on.

    3.  Any  easy way to get seat electrical plug connections apart?

    4.  Over filling gas tank seems to be a very real possibility?  Any way to prevent such?

    5.  Coming up on 20k service.  Anyone go over 20k before adjusting the valves?

    Thank you in advance.

    To the first question: Obviously, by incorporating a chip in the key they can ask for whatever they want, I think around here they ask for 100 to 150 euros to make a duplicate of the key.

    Another thing is to cancel (cheat) the immobilizer and put keys without incorporating the chip and the cost can be around 3 or 5 euros.

    To the second question:
    I should be able to start it without any problem, I have a radio with a built-in sirius system and I have no problem.

    On this subject you should give more information to see what can happen.

    It could be that I have it disconnected.

    See the following:

    With the buttons of the switches of the upper stereo, keep it pressed, to see if it starts up.

    To the third question:

    The connector itself has a built-in security system.

    Try tightening inwards on the tab, you will see that it makes pressure (spring type) at the same time, detach the half of the connector by pulling it out

    To question number four:

    This gas tank has holes in it in amazing places and it never seems to fill up.

    To question number five:

    I have passed that revision and there is no problem, as long as you know that your bike is working well.

    When you ask to check valves it shows a lot

    1.  The Key has a Transponder Chip that must be programmed to the ECU
    otherwise the Immobiliser will not be disengaged and you will not be able to start the engine.
    If you just want a Spare key for the Luggage & Fuel Cap etc, you can get Blank Keys without the chip,
    for just a few Dollars.

    2.  You don't NEED to have a Bluetooth device connected to listen to the Audio system.
    Within the Audio Settings Menu, select the Audio Output as SPEAKERS.
    ( Read the Audio Manual or download it here under the "Adventure & Touring" Category :
    Triumph Owners Handbook Library )

    3.  There is a catch on the side of the electrical plug that has to be depressed to release it, then pull
    the plug out holding the body NOT the wires to avoid the risk of pulling the wires out of the moulding.

    4.   There is a plastic cage at the fuel tank filler neck to prevent inserting the fuel nozzle too far
    and possibly causing damage over time to the plastic of the fuel tank. 
    Some Members have cut this away to allow the nozzle to be inserted further.
    If the nozzle is held vertically when filling, with the tip resting on the cage,
    the Fuel delivery will usually cut out as son as the fuel level reaches it -
    Here in the UK I have never had a problem with the fuel overflowing when filling up.

    5.  I can only recommend adhering to the recommended service intervals and procedures.
    The 20K Service is the "biggie" and at a Triumph Dealer it will cost !

    Digital - great idea about canceling the immobilization in the computer.  How can I do that?  I doubt that's in the manual.  On turning on the radio, I tried holding down the scroll button on volume but that didn't work.  I"ll try the arrows tomorrow.  But good ideas.  I sure appreciate such.
