    Complete electrical shut down

    Hi

    I have just found an issue with my Trophy Se, on full left lock I lose electrics completely, no dash, engine cuts out, nothing, slight move to left and it all comes back and restarts no problem, I have had all the fairings off to fit a Denali but did not touch any of the handlebar wiring.

    Anyone else suffered this issue?

    thanks in advance

    It's most likely the wires where they exit at the base of the ignition switch, the rigid brake hose rubs/breaks them over time.

    I would bet that the ignition wires have chaffed through where they rub on the steel clutch (or is it brake) line where the wires go between this and the headstock. Follow the sheathing from the ignition switch and you will see it. Covered extensively in posts here and I have suffered it once where I was left stranded, the second time I caught it just in time.

    Thank you Earthman and 1675, I will investigate tomorrow and see what I find, didn't expect it on a 4 year, 1,000 mile bike

    We are hearing more and more of these failures.

    It happened to me on one of the last few they built.

    Once you have confirmed that this IS the fault ( almost guaranteed to be )
    I would contact Triumph and ask them politely, but firmly, what they intend to do
    about repairing the fault on your Trophy, that they have known about for many years
    but have not issued any Recall to carry out checking and preventative action !

    For reference, this is one of the lengthier Topics on this subject :

    Ignition Switch Wiring Failures.

    Cheers  :821:

    Thanks coconut, I have now stripped the top end around the ignition and found that just touching the plastic sheath under the ignition switch cuts the electrics, I have noticed that the wires coming out of the left side of the ignition as you sit on the bike bend sharply downwards and it was indeed the front brake hose that has put pressure to that area.

    I will contact the dealer tomorrow but really need a quick fix as I am away in 4 weeks time!!!

    Do you have any idea how the ignition is removed from the top yolk, it feels like sheer bolts which means I will need to take the top yolk off to get to it

    Thanks in advance

    This Topic has some useful information:

    Ignition Switch DIY Repair

    The task is easier if you unbolt the Handlebar(s) and secure them in an upright position ( Hydraulic Fluud in the Master Cylinders ! ).

    Let us know how you get on ! :028:
