Cockpit storage cubby wont open
« on: April 13, 2014, 03:51:45 pm »
My Cockpit storage cubby won't open. It's been fine up until now. I don't want to force it. Anyone have this problem?

Only when the ignition isn't turned on  :745:   :451:

I just picked my Trophy up yesterday. When I went to see the bike for the test ride  the cubby hole wouldn't open. When I turned the ignition on the button clicked but wouldn't depress. When I collected the bike the sales manager told me that they replaced it under warranty.

Cheers, Donald

Mine used to "stick" sometimes and I had to "poke" the button a bit for it to open occasionally  :023:

It's easy enough to get at to see if it appears to be fitted correctly - two screws -
one on the top of the cover, and the other inside the front of the glove box,
then lift the whole assembly up and slightly rearwards to release it
from the front two concealed rubber mountings.

I never had a problem with mine. Then I took the bike to the dealer for unrelated warranty work. When I picked the bike up the dealer said they had had a problem with the door but had fixed it.  I assumed they had to open it to remove the fairing for the tank replacement, the head  and ECU work.  Didn't think to try it while there.  Now I have to push the button 2-3 times to get it to work. When I find a few minutes I will have to repair the dealer's warranty work.

Ah. Is it a coincidence I've just had that ECU recall thing done..

Perhaps not.   Perhaps every dealer is screwing matters up when the remove the fairing.   If I don't find the fix to be easy I will take it back to the dealer

 Triumph have said it's the Solenoid that's faulty and that'll have to take it to the dealer. I've just been to the bloody dealer!
