     Friday last [16th. Sept.] whilst riding north on the Hume Freeway I had a large bird [cocky] hit the top left [sitting on the bike] corner of the screen. The result of such a heavy impact bent the screen back with the result that the bottom bracket [the one witch drives the screen up and down] broke at the point where it is attached to the drive spindle. If you go to page 36 on the maintenance section you'll see a photo of another members broken bracket. In his case his bike fell over at a fuel outlet and the screen hit the fuel pump/bowser causing his to break in the same spot.
     I'm going to see if a local aluminium fabricating business can tig weld it together with a piece of  aluminium top and bottom to give it a bit more strength.
     Coconut's post of removing the front screen and lights was most helpful in removing all the bodywork. My wife made comment that she hopes there's no screws and nuts left over when I put it all back together. I tell you it's very "busy" in behind the screen.  :821:

    I remember Triumph had spare parts for those aluminum parts.

    Once when entering the house I hit the dome (screen) with the frame of the main door and those pieces of aluminum broke.

    I took those two pieces apart and put two steel plates on each end and screwed them to the aluminum piece and it always worked for me and for years I had no problems.

     I have repaired the broken piece with a flat length of aluminium and six screws into the broken item. But on another note I was told when enquiring re the availability of said part by my Triumph outlet, that you have to buy the complete assembly, at about $840. I pointed out that  a US member had purchased the broken bit singularly. The spare parts person then informed me that indeed you could, and they just happened to have one at their headquarters. My good wife just happens to be in Melbourne on another matter and is awaiting my phone call that the delivery has been made. I'll be fitting the new item and keeping the repaired one as backup. I'm sure there's another bird out there with my screen on his radar. Cheers.

     I'm rather taken aback by your comment. Assuming you DO get the replacement part.
      Well it's sitting right next to me while I write this post. Deliverered by my dear wife. The part Number is T2305486. In fact i just put this into Google search and the World of Triumph website lists part number T2305485 as the Upper Arm Screen Mechanism, part number T2305488 Rubber Covers Screen Mechanism.
      As I don't know how to post photos on the forum if you PM me your phone number or email address i'll send you the photo.
      The factory service manual doesn't go far enough into the screen raising and lowering mechanism. Cheers.  :821: :028:

     I forgot to mention that the item cost $144.95 AUS. DOLLARS. Probably a bit considering the smallish size. But as my good wife always says.... It's better to have than not to have.

    Lost in translation, I thought your wife was trying to get the part for you, and that you were waiting for a call to confirm !

    I'll send you my email address in a Private Message shortly.

    Did you get the Upper Arm Screen Mechanism - T2305485
    or the Lower Arm Screen Mechanism - T2305486
    or did you have to replace both ?

    Cheers  :821:

     All good Coconut. No, only the lower arm mechanism T2305486. The arm mounts onto a plate that is driven up and down by an electric motor turning a long screw mechanism, this in turn drives the screen up and down. The offending arm mounts with 4 screws and the amount of cast aluminium above, middle and below the holes is very small. Maybe it's designed this way so as to brake rather than have something more expensive brake.  Got your PM and will send photos of all parts. Maybe you might be able to give a description here on how to place photos in the forum. It would help me [and possibly others] in the procedure. Cheers. :821: :028:
