Aftermarket Triumph parts availability in U.S.
« on: January 26, 2016, 02:20:24 am »
I recently ordered some items for the trophy from bike bandit.com and Pure-triumph.

Bike bandit for gps mount parts and heated grip parts.  Part of that order is "back ordered " and the other shows "ordered", but not shipped.  The part ordered will be here in another 2 weeks as they told me it ships from UK to them and then to me.  So about 22 days total.

From pure triumph I ordered R&G crash bats, sliders, etc and pannier and trunk liners.  When I saw that it had not shipped after about 3 days for items that showed available I gave them a call. They advised they were waiting for one more bag and it should go out last Friday.  As of yet still not shipped....6 days since order.

 So is this normal for the aftermarket parts for this bike?  I know that I am impatient, but damn  :002:

My local dealer orders from Triumph once a week to save freight so it depends on when I order on how long it will take.

My last order Triumph part order  from Bike Bandit also took three weeks.

There is not a lot of aftermarket things for the Trophy, but I don't think it needs much.

On a positive note, everything seems to be much more reasonably priced compared to BMW parts.

You can get R&G parts in the US from Twisted Throttle .

For genuine Triumph parts, I use Hermy's online store with good success and service.

I am happy that it doesn't need much!  I am extremely happy about not ordering an aftermarket cruise control. :047: lol

Thanks for the Hermy's link.  I did see the R&G products at twisted throttle, but for the swing arm slider, axle sliders and crash bars were an additional $185 at twisted throttle :233:


Frugal and impatient I guess :002:

Ordering from overseas is hit and miss.  Sometimes I get a within a few days, other times more than a month.  Best thing to do is to make sure you have a recourse if and when things don't go right.  Purchasing through ebay and/or paying with Paypal mitigate a lot of the risks, as you can file a dispute to get a refund.  If you credit card has purchase protection, that'll work too, but the dispute process isn't as well laid out as with ebay and paypal.

One other bit of coaching, if you are planning a road trip make sure your bike is "road ready" weeks ahead of your departure date. Waiting for accessories is one thing, waiting to hit the road is a completely different matter.

I've ordered from both vendors. Bike Bandit is always at least two weeks. Pure Triumph depends on what they have in stock and what they have to order.
