    centre stand disaster

    Hi all - im not sure of the correct name for the item however, the bracket that the centre stand bolts into on the left side of the bike has snapped right through the centre of the screw section

    can anyone tell me what (if its separate) that part would be referred to so i can order a new one - or is it part of a frame section (meaning im completely buggered without some welding)

    i know it wasnt a very good description i will try and get some photos once it stops raining

    cheers

    Check the age of your bike. Early bikes had the centre stands replaced under warranty.  However, I don't know why; just mine was...

    There was a recall, but the stand was not replaced, rather, a bracket was installed to prevent the stand from too much forward travel.
    A picture would help...

    The recall was only on early models and not because they would break, only a range of travel on the stand was involved.

    The Centre Stand Recall ( RM2013/033 ) affected Trophy models
    from VIN 561284 to 590855 ( Build dates 01/06/12 to 28/02/13  ).

    The Centre Stand Recall added a strengthening bracket on the left side of the bike - Part Number T2082719.

    After the above VIN range a modification was utilised and the bracket was not used.

    The bracket that was added is shown in the image below :

    77

    If it is not this bracket, and it is the part with a hole in it through which the centre stand is bolted,
    then I'm pretty sure this is part of the main frame itself, and is going to need a specialist repair.   :012:

    hi Coconut

    unfortunately i think it is the part of the main frame that has snapped - seems to be a forged ring that the main threaded bolt and eye goes through - i have finally got a picture for you to look at (and sympathize with me)

    its about the best photo i could get - as i cant put it on the centre stand to see properly lol



    thanks

    Here are two Photo's of mine - it's difficult to tell, but there does seem to be a difference,
    in the Frames, and I'm wondering if yours was the earlier type of frame, and mine the later,
    and yours hasn't had the Centre Stand Recall carried out ??

    Check your VIN Number against those listed in my previous Message.

    If your VIN Number falls within the affected range, and the Recall has NOT been carried out,
    then you may be able to get some recourse from Triumph if the bike has been to a Triumph Dealership,
    after the Recall was announced ( 09/12/13 ), for Servicing work etc,
    when they should check that all Recalls etc have been done.
