On my Trophy SE the same problem has occurred. One of the wires is broken where it goes out from ignition switch.
I wonder; will it help to change the wires with wires being 5 to 10 cm longer? The mission is to get a softer bend.

From what I can see on my bike, it's more about the way those wires exit the switch body and the rubbing of the brake hose more than the wires being pulled tight all the time. By all means, try longer wires but I doubt that would help/solve the problem??

Thank you for posting this informative diy repair guide!
I'm prepared for this eventuality, now.

To ALL Trophy Owners that have had this problem - please see this Topic :

Ignition Switch Wiring Failure LIST of Members affected !

The above Topic also contains a request for information from everyone that has had this failure,
with the intention of formally alerting Triumph to the scale of the problem.

Thank You to everyone that has responded so far -
though this is currently less than half of those known to have had the failure,
and the more responses that are received, the more likely it is that
we will be able to get something done about it !

My problem is if I leave bike in my garage with handlebars turned to left it drains my battery in about 2 days. if I leave the handlebar turned to the right It doesn't happen.  Sounds like its going to expensive no matter which  way I go.  :233:

Can anyone tell me where in the service manual the ignition switch removal is.    Thanks

It's not specifically mentioned in the Service Manual.

Chapter 12, Section 8 provides information on dismantling the Front Suspension Upper Yoke
where the two Upper fork clamp bolts are undone, the 2 electrical connectors for the TES
on SE Models are unplugged, followed by removing the large Headstock nut,
which then allows the complete Yoke to be lifted away complete with Handlebars.

It may well be easier, as described by other Members who have carried out this repair,
( I haven't - my Dealer did mine under warranty ), to remove the Handlebars,
and support them out of the way - in an upright position due to the Hydraulic fluid
in the Master Cylinders ), and then remove the Upper Yoke,
which can then be inverted to access the Ignition Switch.

Hope that helps.
