    So it arrived today!

    Well i have now joined the ranks of a TT owner  :046: as it was dropped off today and took my old K1200 GTSE in part ex. I resisted getting out on it today as the weather has been awful here today. It does seem a little lighter and less top heavy than the K and the topbox and panniers slightly smaller but will have to pack less stuff. A quick question for you it has a normal key no fob but the alarm light flashes. Is this a key operated immobiliser?  and if so is it ignition key deactivated and does it drain the battery. Also does any of you use the optimate to plug straight into socket on the frame and if so does it work. Will add some pictures when it stops raining and warms up a bit.

    That alarm light stops flashing after 24 hours, well if you don't start up the engine again. A chip is built into the key. :002:

    I use an optimate and plug into that socket by the left knee, that's the only socket that stays live when the ignition is off by the way.

     :400: to the Big triple club.   :821: Cheers and enjoy your ride.  Mine overwinters on a tender hooked directly to the battery.  The newer ones don't have the sound system draw down problem and the older ones have it fixed.

    Hi 1299cc and :400: to the Club !

    ( Check your PM's re the Tank Bag Strap !)

    As stated the Ignition Key has no buttons to press,
    the Trophy is fitted with an Ignition Immobiliser, ( it is NOT an "Alarm" )
    where the Key(s) contain a Transponder that is detected
    by an antenna at the Ignition Switch.
    If the Transponder is not present, the engine will not start.

    You can get an additional Alarm Accessory ( Datatool S4 )
    which comes with a Remote Key Fob to Arm and Disarm it.

    The Power Socket next to your left Knee is very convenient for connecting a Battery Optimiser,
    such as the Optimate, and an Adapter is available from your Triumph Dealer to connect an Optimate.
    The Socket is a "Powerlet" / "DIN" / "Hella" type, and not the usual "Cigar Lighter" socket.

    Also, check your Main Bettery ( Remove the cover under the right handlebar grip by undoing 1 screw,
    then lifting the rear edge of the cover and pulling it up and back to release the front retaining pegs ).
    You may find that there is already a "Fly-Lead" connnected to the Battery, with a an Optimte in-line connector,
    which some Members prefer rather than using the Powerlet socket.

    You don't need to worry about the "Sound System Battery draw down" issue that karl mentions.
    That problem only affected US & Canadian export models with the XM Satellite Radio system.

    Cheers  :821:

     :400: 1299cc I'm betting you will be happy with the switch.
