    Bike Bandit no longer selling Triumph OEM parts

    Went to check some part numbers today, and it looks like Bike Bandit is no longer selling Triumph OEM parts.  If you select OEM Parts on their home page, Triumph is no longer there.  Also, when I select my saved machines, I only get aftermarket and universal parts.  I'll miss being able to get minor things through there.  Triumph better step up their own parts site, otherwise it's going to be hard for some of us to support our rides.  I'm fairly close to my dealer, but it's still a trip I have to plan.

    Hi Dave,

    Have you tried contacting them to see if this is correct,
    and if so whether they are aware of anyone else taking up the supply of spares ?

    Is it possible that they might just be updating their Web Site,
    and all the Triumph parts will re-appear when done ?

    ( I've seen similar things happen on other Web sites that sell "stuff" ).

    Cheers  :821:

    Search links from Google pointing to the Bike Bandit site for Triumph OEM parts return the 404 Not Found error. Something seems to have changed. That's a real bummer as I ordered all kinds of obscure parts from them over the years. Hopefully, the change isn't permanent. Doesn't look promising, though.

    Many dealers have OEM parts that can be ordered online.  Motorcycles of Dulles is one.

    Pure Triumph has genuine Triumph accessories if you don't have a dealer with a website.  I sometimes only used the online sites for the part number, and then had my dealer order them if they weren't in stock for pickup on my next service visit if it was in the near future.  I must say I haven't had to order very many parts for the Trophy.

    Got a reply this morning - "We did used to carry their parts, but they have pulled availability for more dealership-oriented transactions. We will keep you updated if they decide to change their minds!"

    So we have confirmation that what we're seeing is not just a glitch.

    Let's hope they have decided to increase the availability of parts to the dealers here in the states, and we don't have to wait for parts to be special ordered.  The few parts I have had ordered were very common items (fasteners and such) and should have been dealer stock but had to be ordered.  This is a large dealer with a lot of Triumph motorcycles in stock as well as other brands.

    I don't think Triumph employs a parts distributor in the USA. Without such a thing, I don't see that changing any time soon. The dealers sure as heck aren't going to stock parts.
