Triumph Optimiser
« on: March 16, 2013, 09:32:34 AM »
Hi All
Am in Australia. Have a Trophy coming and want to get the Triumph Battery Optimiser.
Can't find it on the Triumph website and not sure of price etc.
If anyone has one, could you please tell me
Cost in Australia? - can it be connected through the Accessory Socket, or, does it have its' own connection, or, must it be connected directly to the battery terminals?
Have done searches on triumph website but no success. :187:
Cheers
Rob

I have an ordinary (non-triumph) optimiser. It comes with a connection designed to fit to the battery with a connector on it so you can just plug the optimiser in whenever you want. I had it installed on my Honda and will be fitting it to the Triumph (when it stops raining here!).

Hi,

I have always use an Optimate which is around ú50ish. They are supplied with a fused lead which connects to the battery. I tend not to use this method, I buy an adaptor (usually eBay) which clips on the end of the Optimate lead and then plugs directly into the socket outlet on the left hand side of engine (bike) which is permanently live. Couldn't be simpler :152:

My Trophy SE came with an optimate cable fitted, it is located to the left of the battery compartment and has a red rubber waterproof cap. I am pretty sure this is standard equipment as I never specified it when I ordered the bike, it was just there. You should check on this before ordering parts.
Might as well as wish we had.

It's not standard from the factory, but a lot of dealerships install them into every bike they sell during the PDI for their own convenience.

I noticed the red /orange cover on the demonstrator bike I rode.
You may be correct. Will wait til I get the bike to check.
Thanks for the info  :062:
