    So I'm relying on memory here.... You hold down the "i" button until the window with the many choices appears. Scroll down (using the info up/down button) to the profile you want (profile one or profile two, also using the toggle button). Press the "i" button again and a window opens that has "load" on the second line (under the helmet icon). Press the "i" button and it will start a "calibration or calibrating" yellow light on the left gauge. Although it doesn't have a bag symbol I believe it takes this into it's calibration cycle. It does say how to do this in the owners manual, just saying..... :002:

    From the Owners Manual ( TES ) :

    The three LOADING (pre-load) options available are:
    1UP;
    1UP+LUGGAGE;
    2UP.

    I've always wondered why there is no option for 2 + luggage??

    It's an interesting one - and ( IMHO ) is not explained very well in the Owners Handbook ...

    So, this is pure speculation on my part  :087:   :

    I can only assume that the 1 UP + Luggage setting , means Rider + FULL Luggage.
    "Full" luggage would be panniers and top box loaded with 10Kgs in each.

    "IF" 1 UP ( without Luggage ) means Panniers and Top Box fitted but empty,
    then I'm guessing that when you put a pillion on the back ( average weight of, say 90 Kgs = 200 lbs approx ),
    there's not going to be a lot of difference in the handling whether you have another 30lbs of luggage in the panniers and top box or not, so to have a fourth option of 2 UP + Luggage wouldn't make much difference.

    I'd also guess that the 2 UP Setting has a built in allowance for at least "some" luggage -
    I can't remember ever seeing a Trophy 2 UP without the Panniers or Top box fitted,
    and I doubt there are many riding around 2 UP with completely empty luggage either  :084:

    I think that is very well reasoned Coconut and entirely logical....

    Well reasoned I suppose but for some when they add a female pillion the extra luggage that said female pillion adds far outweighs the 30 pounds of luggage you cite as normal.  In fact when I bring my daughter along I sometimes wonder if the panniers and top box can hold the extra weight.  The weight of my daughter is negligible compared to weight of her luggage :008:

    .... the extra luggage that said female pillion adds far outweighs the 30 pounds of luggage ...

    Being VERY carefull what I say here - I don't usually get involved in discussions
    about women and weight, either theirs or their luggage !   :159:

    ( As for me - I'm not overweight - but I should be 7'10" tall  :745: )

    The 10Kgs referred to for each pannier and Top Box, are Triumph's stated maximum load capacity,
    so that's what they'll have used in calculating the various Pre-Load settings  :028:
