Recommendations for online sources for parts
« on: July 08, 2013, 10:23:28 PM »
In trying to move my motorcycle out of the rain and against the building wall, I forgot that that in putting the kickstand down and leaning the bike I needed to adjust for more clearance.  As a result I scratched up the pannier.

I'm looking for a reliable source of online Triumph Trophy parts  online.   Ideally, for future acts of stupidity, quick shipping in the Northeast USA region.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in Advance!

For something like the pannier I think you will find the dealer is the best source.  You only need to replace the painted portion, not the whole thing.,

I agree with w8d4it re dealer ( from experience). Most keep the pannier skin in stock because the panniers come to them unassembled so they can make them fit either color. It's a very easy change but you will need the tool that fits the head of the attaching bolt ( sorry don't know the name..not an Allen wrench)  the tool is not part of the stock tool kit   Not sure of cost but the skin I bought for my top box was $ 148.00.  :183:

I was told 6-8 weeks to get the cover in stock.   Hence, figured I would look for reliable online sources and posted the request for feedback.

I got the pannier cover from www.triumphmcparts.com and paid $77 for it.

Just an FYI:  Called triumphmcparts.   Pannier covers are "red dotted" for the USA.   When I asked for a translation of what "red dotted" means - they have to come over from England.  No availability until the second week of August!

Just as a "follow up" to the "follow up," anyone else have any other online sources for parts?

I use 'worldofriumph' for the satnav mount and to replace a broken left front indicator. Lot faster than my dealer but had to pay freight from UK.
Don't grow up, it's a trap...
