    Looks like one of the ones that the battery cover panel pegs locate in?

    Honestly though, I can't see how you could jetwash one of those out, even if the peg was not in position for some reason.. They are a tight fit!!

    Its likley to be T3020135 and could be one of the two securing the forward edge of the Battery Cover.
    ( Same as the Storage box under the left handlebar ).

    There are also two more securing the small dark gray engine infil panel
    just below the edge of the fairing near the rider's shin ( on both sides ).

    It could also be the one securing the rear "peg" of the painted panel surrounding the Indicator.

    Less likely but also check the two grommets for the Side Panel,
    though these appear to be more elongated.

    Edited to add : Be VERY careful using a Pressure Washer on the Trophy !
    ( I own a Pressure Washer and it is NEVER used on mine ! )

    If you do use one, be particularly careful to keep the high pressure jet
    away from the Front Wheel Bearings, the Rear Suspension Unit Lower Bearings
    ( within the Drag Link etc ), the Handlebar Switchgear, Front & Rear Brake Calipers,
    Front and Rear Brake and Clutch Master cylinders, and anywhere else that high pressure
    water might be forced into - where it could result in damage or corrosion  :012:

    Cheers  :821:

    Weird. I had the same grommet bouncing around on top of my tank during a ride (at 60mph) this weekend. I was lucky enough to catch it. I was going to ask the same question.

    Just like the K1600 I had some of the grommets on the Trophy may get pushed or pulled out if they haven't had their plastic parts removed in a while.  I think it's either drying out somewhat or possibly the rubber shrinking back to new diameter over time and getting tight on the prong that fits in it.  I started using just a bit of silicone grease on them and the plastic comes off and goes back on so much easier.  It doesn't take much.

    I'll chalk that one up as another success then !  :164:

    The grommets probably don't need replacing,
    but like all types of rubb they can dry out over time. 

    With a RRP of around GBP 2.00 for just one replacement grommet,
    a bottle of Auto Glym Vinyl & Rubber care,
    ( other products are available  :008: )
    would seem to be a good investment !

    Cheers  :821:
