Mystery
« on: February 10, 2016, 08:57:35 pm »
So after 16.500 Km's I must report that there is nothing left to complain about my SE. The cilinderhead has been renewed/modified plus fitting of a new heated grip and the TPMS-sensors. The information on this list helped me to understand and know most of this complicated bike. But I found something that I do not understand the purpose of yet. On the bottom of the glovebox there are two small studs, one maybe 1" tall and the other half of that, both attached to the sidewall and the bottom. What could they be meant for?

I think you'll find that it's purpose is to store a Credit Card sized card vertically in there...

Useful for a Fuel Card, Credit Card, or the Card that Triumph Supply in the UK
which has the RAC Breakdown Asssistance call out details on it  :028:

Cheers  :821:

I know - crazy isn't it !  ( But another Mystery solved  :028: )

Probably why they give it away free in the UK for the first year !   :164:

It's a nice thought from Triumph to provide a place to store a credit or debit card on the bike, but MINE are staying in my pocket!   Something bad or very inconvenient would happen if I tried to leave it on the bike, even in a locked space .... !

I find that "credit card" holder very useful for keeping my works pass, which I can then access easily with gloves still on, to show to security when entering site.

I just have to remember to at least open the glovebox before turning the ignition key off so I can remove the pass before the glovebox locks itself.

Lannis - It was MY suggestion about the Credit Card, not Triumph's -
I mentioned it as everyone knows the size of a Credit Card,
but I would never keep mine there either !

But The Triumph Assistance Card, Fuel Cards, etc are ideal  :028:

Could be handy on a Peage as well for the CC and the entry slip.

This Forum is great!
