Screen security - a timely reminder !
« on: April 26, 2014, 10:07:59 am »
I am aware of a Trophy owner that noticed that one of his Screen retaining clips ( "E-clips" ) was missing.

It is possible that it was not replaced or re-fitted correctly,
after having work done on the bike, and it popped off !

As a lot of Trophy's have had work done recently, or are booked in to have work done
where the Screen may be removed and these E-Clips taken off and re-fitted,
this is a timely reminder to check them - there are four - Left and Right rails, Upper and Lower.
 
If one or more are missing, there is a possibility of the pivot pin working its way out
of the Windscreen Rail and the screen becoming detached  :012:

Triumph Part No. T2304158, or PFKL2303894 from World of Triumph ( UK Retial =  £1.79 each ).

Always a good idea to regularly check the whole bike over for things like this  :028:
( When cleaning the bike is a good time  :169: ).

Good point, Alan.

Checked mine and they're good.

Hi Coconut,

Yep they're slippery little buggers. I accidently pulled one off with a cloth while cleaning inside the screen before a ride.  I noticed the missing clip 200km from home. Luckily when I got home it was on the garage floor (unfortunately I lost one of the washer/collets).

I've bought a spare clip and washer/collet just in case (+ a replacement washer). They're not cheap @ $A12.98.
