Mystery part found that definitely came off the bike.
« on: June 28, 2015, 02:49:31 am »
It is a clip with a nut built into it and looks exactly like the one that holds the battery cover in place.  Obviously it is not the one that holds the battery cover in place since I was able to look at it to know the one I found matches it. 

How can I figure out where this part belongs?  Is there a parts fiche somewhere so I can see how many of these clips are used on the bike and where?

BTW:  I found it on the path to my shop where I park my bikes.  Had I lost it somewhere else I would have no clue I was missing a part that is supposed to be holding something together.  Of course it could just be an extra part that someone dropped in the bike and just grabbed another.

There is also one of those parts on the left hand side holding in the locking compartment

Personally I use the World of Triumph website, Illustrated Parts List but that only gives you an idea of location and price.
It is fairly close to the Triumph Electronic Part Catalogue but the part Numbers are different..

I think the item you found is Item #13 - a Captive Boss. A similar item will be on the LH Fairing Diagram..

Thanks guys.  The dealer did put a new battery in the bike prior to purchase.  So either that part came from the factory or from the dealer dropping it in the bike.  Don't see how the dealer would drop it since you don't have to remove it when changing the battery.

Mine will slide around, and OFF pretty easily when there is no screw in it to snug it up on the plastic.

I had a problem with mine as it failed quite easily.  See this thread

Its always possible that your dealer had a similar problem, replaced the captive boss (as Triumph calls it) and just didn't properly clean up after himself.

It can pay to tighten up the grip of the captive boss when you access it. The one on the left side of mine had been replaced by the dealer, so must have come out during a major service, as I found it on the floor of the garage weeks later.

My clip bolt is missing on the left side.  I noticed the bolt bouncing up and down while riding.  I pulled on it and it came right up.  Looked under neith and just a slot there  so I suppose what you guys are talking about is what I am missing
