    Trace owner or Service history from Registration Number ?

    Hi guys I Just bought a Trophy off Ebay and wondered how I find out the previous owner & history.

    Iíve read the help guides & removed the tank to give it a service ( oil - Air filters etc).
    But on inspection the filter looks almost new.

    Not sure what to do now.

    Would live to know itís history.

    Anybody have any ideas.

    According to the GOV.UK Web Site :

    Triumph Trophy **64 &*** - { details deleted at OP's request by Trophy Moderator }
    ( Blue ) was first Registered in November 2014.

    At it's first MOT on 06/11/17 ( due on 27/11/17 ),
    the Trophy PASSED the MOT Test with Advisories for :
    • Front Brake Discs slightly pitted
    • Rear Brake Disc slightly worn, and
    • Rear Tyre worn close to legal limit.

    The recorded mileage on 06/11/17 was 28,986.

    The Servicing Schedue is :
    • First 500 Mile ( "Break In" ) Service,
    • Annual Service from date of previous Service ( Unless 10,00 miles reached in less than a Year )
    • Every 10,000 Miles from date of previous Service - or Annual Service if 10,000 miles not reached
    • Every 20,000 Miles Service
    • Every 40,000 Miles Service

    ..... so by 06/11/17 it should have had :

    • 1st 500 Mile Service
    • Annual Services in ( Approx. ) November 2015, 2016, and 2017,
    • A 10,000 Mlle Service, and a 20,000 Mile Service,
      which were probably carried out with two the above Annual Services

    On 24/10/18 the Trophy was presented for its next MOT and it FAILED for :

    • Rear Tyre tread depth below legal limit, and
    • Offside Front Indicator Lense defective

    The recorded mileage on 24/10/18 was 39,569, so it should have had, or was due,
    another Annual Service, with a 20,000 mile service also due within the next 431 miles.

    The Trophy was presented again on 24/10/18 with the same recorded mileage.
    This time the Trophy PASSED, the Certificate expiring on 23/10/19.

    The MOT is shown as currently expired ( as above ) as is the Vehicle Excise Licence, from 09/09/19.

    Since 24/10/18, assuming an Annual / 20,000 Mile service was carried out,
    a further Annual Service would have been due 12 months later ( October / November 2019 )
    and possibly another 10,000 mile Service depending on mileage since the previous Service.

    With regards to Service Records - Check under the Rear Seat
    as there is a recess where the Owners Handbook and Service Books
    can be stowed - and these may still be there !

    If the seller has not provided you with the Service Booklet,
    any Services carried out by Triumph Dealerships will be recorded on Triumph's Database.

    Any Triumph Dealership can look that up that information for you,
    and also advise if there are any outstanding Recalls or Service Bulletins.

    Alternatively you could contact Triumph After Sales Department
    who should be able to provide you with those details.
    Send them an email explaining you are the new owner,
    and request a copy of any known Service History,
    and to record your details as the new Owner for any future Recalls or Safety Bulletins etc.

    Email : after.sales@triumph.co.uk

    I've never tried it and while Triumph will NOT give you the previous Owners details,
    due to Data Protection Law, they may agree to pass a message on to the previous Owner
    with YOUR contact details, along with your request for the previous owner to contact you.

    Finally, if you are also missing the Owners Handbook, and Audio Handbook,
    these can be downloaded from the Triumph Owners Handbook Library by clicking these Links :

    Owners Handbook ( Look under the "Adventure and Touring" section ).

    Audio Handbook ( Look under the "Adventure and Touring" section ).

    Cheers  :821:

    I've just realised that this is the same Trophy I saw being advertised
    where there was a Video showing it being ridden, and at the end of the Video
    it showed the Sceen being raised and then lowered.

    After being raised, instead of smothly lowering to the lowest position
    like it is supposed to, it "fell" from a little less than full height,
    as though there was something broken with the mechanism.

    Was this fixed before you bought it ?

    Cheers  :821:

    Hi guys. Yes this is the one I bought.

    The screen is smooth operating now so not sure why it did this.

    Just an update, Iíve managed to get 2 x indicators quite cheap, and now will put it back together and use it as it is. Taking for
    MOT next week.

    I spoke to the dealer whom serviced the bike last and it has a full service history incl 40k service and has had new headers and other stuff done.

    So Iím really pleased.
