IS THERE A WAY: Shield up, key off

Is there a way to leave the windshield all the way up when the key is off

I do not believe so. Would love to hear otherwise though

The only way at the moment to do this is using the dealer lab top  :087: :087:
When I took mine in for the second time with issues that they are still trying to sort I spoke to the techi and he told me that Triumph had just launched the update with this ability in the software. It may well be in the near future that some after market devise may appear and I agree would be very useful while cleaning etc.

That would be handy, especially when trying to clean the bugs and dirt out from behind the screen down next to the fairing.

Yes, trade your wind screen mechanism with mine. I cant get mine to go down or park with key off. With all the windscreen problems, beCareful you don't get what you wish for.

Yes indeed,be careful what you wish for.

Yesterday I got my ST1300 out to give it a good clean before putting it up for sale. First thing to be done was to put the screen full up to allow easier cleaning. On pressing the "up" button the left side runner moved normally but the right side kept slipping as it went causing the screen to tilt sideways. Same thing happened with the "down" button. WD40 on the rails made no difference.

After looking on the internet it appears this is a common problem on ST1300's after a certain age and is caused by the cog on the drive mechanism wearing. Unfortunately it is not possible to buy this part on its own, only the whole drive assembly at a cost of £300!  :005:

I have ordered one from David Silver spares as I don't think it will be easy to sell the bike with a dodgy screen mechanism, but the new owner can fit it. On the ST1300 removing the front panel requires starting at the belly-pan and working up, essentially removing ALL the panels!

On the Trophy it is easy enough to leave the ignition on to get the screen up- only the parking lights remain on which appear not to drain the battery significantly.

The other alternative is to remove the screen- it is only held on by six bolts.
