New Trophy Mirrors
« on: January 12, 2013, 10:26:26 AM »
Ater an extended road test on the new Trophy I found no matter where the mirrors were set? All I got was a great view of  my hands & the wife's knees. I even spoke to the guys at Triumph at the Motorcycle Live Show? No advice given there either...???

My solution !!

Ordered the bar mounted mirrors from the Explorer? These have arrived before my bike and trailed on the shop demo."PERFECT" now I can whats behind me. They will be fitted to my bike before leaving the dealer when I collect it.

Any of you guys out there had any problems of this nature? This worked for me.

Hi,

I picked my Trophy up on Monday and have not had a problem with the mirrors, the view I get is under each bar and a really clear view of what is behind in each mirror, no problem solo or two up.

Nice one mate. Enjoy the bike.
Maybe just me being 6'4" tall? Stops me from being able to get a clear view through the fairing mounted mirrors.

At 5' 9" (standard height-ish) with a low heated seat set on the lowest position that's got to be it!!

I don't think that the seat adjustments would make any difference with your height.

Tried that also? Cramps up the legs.
The things we have to suffer LOL!! Sure I'll manage even had to buy some tighter fitting boots so I'm able operate gear lever and brake peddle.
No such problem on the Harley? But the pro's will outweigh the con's I'm sure.
No choice now the deed is done,looking forward to joying you guys on the road.

Coming to the Trophy from a Pan 1300, it was always going to be tough but I
have played around with the angle and can report they as good as the Pan's, maybe better.
You may get a 'lower' view of the road than you'd like, but the lateral coverage is excellent.
I'm 5'11" but I think you'll find you can get the angle right even if tall.
Btw, you can adjust the gear lever gap on the spline, and I imagine also the brake pedal.

The mirrors also offer a fabulous place to keep (wet) microfibre cloths.... I'll let you figure out how!
