52 plate trophy 1200
« on: August 25, 2014, 04:35:38 pm »
evening all, just bought a 52 plate 4 owner 1200 trophy, its got factory panniers and a givi rack and topbox
I already own another triumph
just asking on the off chance someone knows to calculate screen height
I know on the test ride helmet got buffeted and got the top box weave at 80
I was taking trident to france soon but seen this and bought it
don't need top box but buffitting over screen annoyed me, as going to ride for around 6 to 7 hours each day

all hints welcome
oh other triumph is last of carb trident sprints 900, on a 98 plate

Hi sfsv8 and  :400: to the Forum !

This Forum is dedicated to the "new" Trophy model ( 2012 onwards ), although everyone is welcome here,
and discussions on Triumph Models other than the "new" Trophy can ( and should - to avoid any confusion )
be held in this Section :"On Two Wheels - Bikers Chat"

I believe that your '52 Plate Trophy will be the previous model Trophy 4 from year 2002,
which has a fixed screen, whereas the "new" Model screen is electrically adjustable.

There is also another Forum dedicated to the previous Trophy Model,
where you ar emore likely to find the answer to your question here : Triumph Trophy 3 & 4 forum  :028:

( I think the original standard screen was 18" tall,
but a Touring option was available that added 4" in height )
or there's something like this you could consider : Laminar Lip or a PUIG Screen deflector :028:

Cheers
