    Cheers! JP, new here, I'm in North West NJ, USA. Just picked up a 2014 SE, 3,600 miles, near showroom condition. This is bike number 5 in the stable.  Love it so far, put about 400 miles on it. However no top box, hoping a can find and alternative, hope I didn't make a mistake buying a bike without one as I would like to do some very long distance tips with this and really need a top box.

    Shiny side up.

     :400: to the forum.  I've gotten so I never use my top box any more.  I have a Mad Waters 30l zip top submersible duffel and their 20l waterproof roll top back pack, and between them they weigh less than 5 lbs total.  Saves a lot of weight up high without the top box.  Riding the Trophy on back roads without any luggage on it is an enlightening  :038: experience!

    Welcome to the forum. You already know the Trophy is a good bike. The amazing thing is that on your long rides it's going to get even better than that. It's capabilities as a long distance highway machine are unmatched. The top box isn't too heavy and the slide mount minimizes excessive input from it's mass. 50mpg and the Trophy's large fuel capacity result in range numbers that allow for all day riding with no worries. Even out west!
    Keep looking here on the forum for your missing top box, they do turn up occasionally.  :400:

    Hi JP67-RN and :400: to the Club !

    Keep an eye on the Forum "Items For Sale" section,
    as Top boxes do appear there occasionally.

    Also when browsing the Internet / searching for one, be aware that
    the TIGER Sport From VIN: 570059 to VIN: 750469, and
    the Sprint GT Model use the same Top Box - if you see one of those for sale.  :169:

    It IS worth checking with a Triumph Dealer, as Part Number T2356395 ( Top Box Assembly, Coverless )
    IS now shown as being available, although the coloured covers are not.

    If you buy a brand new Top Box note that they are not supplied with a lock barrel. 
    The "spare"lock barrel was provided with the Trophy when new, in case the owner
    wanted to add a Top box and retain the single key operation for all locks.

    Check your new to you Trophy to see if you have that spare barrel - it might be in the tool roll,
    or the under seat storage box, or front left storage box, or any bag of "stuff" you were given with the bike's paperwork.

    Inserting a lock barrel into a new Top box is very easy. 

    Changing a lock barrel can be done, but is not so easy - there's a Topic on how to do that here :

    HOW TO: Remove the Top Box Lock Barrel ( at last ! )

    You will also need the Sliding carriage onto which the Top Box is mounted,
    but these are still relatively easy to find.

    Cheers  :821:

    Looks like there's a brand new Top Box here : e Bay CANADA

    You would then need the appropriate coloured cover, and the Sliding carriage ( and the Lock barrel ! )

    Part Number A9508156-JI = Pacific Blue cover ( This one on eBay U.S. )
    Part Number T2350101-MM = Lunar Silver cover
    Part Number A9508156-PR = Phantom Black cover

    Part Number T2351532 = Sliding Carriage assembly ( Should be able to order from Triumph Dealer or Hermys Triumph eStore )

    Part Number T2500692 = Luggage Lock set ( 3 locks & 2 keys ) if needed. Also available via Hermy's

    Cheers  :821:

    You could always use a Givi top box they are much lighter than the Triumph one.
