Farkling a standard Trophy
« on: November 07, 2014, 08:30:41 pm »
I ordered my new standard Trophy October 24th. It was delivered one week later on the 31th. Today after another week this is what I installed :
- heated grips (Triumph)
- GPS bracket (Triumph) with Touratech lockable mount for Zumo 660 wired with TMC receiver
- front fender extender (Triumph)
- tankbag (Triumph)
- GIVI E251 universal rack for Monokey system topboxes
- GIVI V47 topbox
- R&G front fork protectors
 Ordered and arriving next week:
- Powerbronze hugger carbon
- R&G adventure crashbars
- Remus Hexacone stainless exhaust
Planned:
- louder horn
- some form of protection for the rear shock linkage

Wow sounds like a fantastic package.  I have put hardly anything on mine.  I will have to go through your list in more detail  :062:

Hi Mustangpilot,

I hate to say it during the first half of November,
but With Christmas looming ever closer, you could write to Santa,
tell him what a good boy you've been, and see if he will bring you :

R & G Radiator & Downpipe Guards,
Powerbronze Headlamp Protectors,
R & G Swingarm Protector, and
Triumph Pannier Bags !

Ho Ho Ho !

Coco,
Ho, ho, ho for sure!
So I  just asked Santa (http://www.squaredeals-ltd.co.uk/trophy-1200-2013-931-c.asp ) to send me the R&G swingarm protector, radiator and downpipe guards. :131:
I have been using universal pannier bags for the last years. Headlamp protectors, hmmm not sure.
And my latest farkle, I did fabricate some protection to prevent dirt spray reaching the rear shock linkage. Coming week will be a test if this will be effective. I will be touring in mostly rural areas for approx 1000 km with roads covered in dirt, clay, wet leaves, cowsh.t, dead animals parts and more. I will post a picture if this mod is OK.
Coco, thanks for your tips!

No worries  :028:

Oh - also - MIRRORS !

Remove the 2 rubber bungs from the Clutch and Front Brake Cylinder castings -
the mirrors from the Explorer can be used, or others with standard 10mm thread like these :

Thanks for the link - thats roughly what I was thinking but will probably drill and tap holes in grab plate. Luckily I work in an engineering company so I can get little "jobs" like that done.

This was makes removal of the Givi plate easier in the future (ie wont have to remove the grab rack  :002:
