I have since called one other dealer, who indicated "around $2000 plus tax". When I told him it sounds expensive he revealed that estimate included valve balancing (adjustment not just inspection) , he said that he had not had a Trophy come through for a. 20,000 that did not need valves balanced.
  My estimate included the balancing work.

If you can find someone that cuts plastic, you can really benefit in the heat. I had my stock screen cut down to the top of the brackets, curved of course. Lots of air in the down position and about 4" below my sight in the up. I also have a Vstream for colder weather.

I have definitely thought about having mine cut down. I haven’t had a chance to measure it to see if it is the taller screen. But it is to tall for my liking. I might try that first and see what happens.
Thanks!

Just checked again, and my user manual under maintenance and adjustment has a dot at 20,000 miles for Valve clearance check and no dot at 40,000 miles.
So basically, regardless of that, its every 20,000 miles then.

I'll be hitting 60,000 miles quick enough, so Ill get that and the camshaft timing checked at the same time.

I note in the service manual, there is no requirement for the check at 40k miles,
and it doesn't state anything after 40k miles.

It does in mine ! - "Valve Clearances, Check/Adjust at Every 20,000 and 40,000 miles."

The next line in the Schedule is for "Camshaft Timing - Adjust, only first 20,000 mile (32,000 Km ) service"
which is WRONG and is now Scheduled to be checked every 20,000 miles !

That error, and many more on the various Publications for "our" version of Trophy, can be found here :

This may help :

DealerTool  WILL NOT work correctly if Windoze (10) installs the Drivers that IT thinks are “best”.

This is one of the Updates it kept trying to install on my PC which does NOT work :



To check :

Plug your DealerTool device into the USB Port of your Computer.
( There are multiple USB Ports on my PC, and I find it best to always use the same one ).

Go to : Search / Type “Device Manager” and open the App.

Click on “Ports (COM & LPT)” to open the list, and make sure
that the DealerTool is listed as, “Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port (COM 5”)
Note that your COM Port number may be different:



If the DealerTool is NOT shown as above, then Windows has installed Drivers that will not work.

Make sure you are looking at the correct entry in Device Manager by unplugging DealerTool from your PC,
when the Device Manager screen should automatically refresh and no longer show the device.
Disconnect your PC from any Internet connection ( turn on “Airplane Mode” ),
plug DealerTool back in and check the entry in Device Manager again.

Right Click on the device in Device Manager and click “Uninstall”. 
Follow any further instructions, and if given the option,
also delete any Driver files associated with the device.



Once uninstalled, unplug DealerTool from your PC.

From the Software provided with your DealerTool, look for the File, “PL2303_64bit_Installer.exe”,
which may be in a separate Folder named “PL2303_64bit_Installer”.

Double click on the “PL2303_64bit_Installer.exe” which will install the Windows 10 64 Bit driver files.
Follow any instructions on screen and plug the DealerTool device into your PC when prompted
to complete the installation, after which the DealerTool program should work when connected to your Trophy,
but for now, do not use it while connected to your PC when there is any Internet Connection.

It is a long time since I carried out this process on my PC, so I may not have all of the instructions exactly right,
but they should give you an idea of what to do :

There exists a Microsoft Utility to disable automatic updates for specific devices, and it can be downloaded here :
wushowhide.diagcab

Run “wushowhide.diagcab” and then select the option to “Hide Updates”.

Check the box against the appropriate update, and click the “Next” button,
following any further instructions that appear, after which Automatic Updates
will not be applied to the device and it will continue to use its current driver.  :028:

I do not think they can "fix it" as they, among others, are using a counterfeit Prolific chip.  Prolific got wise and the driver checks the authenticity of the chips and will lock them out if fake.  So one has to reinstall the driver version used before they started checking. I understand Prolific charges a licensing fee to use their authentic chips in products.  I use other cables, for example, to program two-way radios and most of them have started using a different brand of "serial to USB" chips avoiding the issue.

Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical / Valve clearance checks.
« Last post by Pauli363 on Yesterday at 08:04 pm »
I bought my late (dec) 2014 SE with 52300 miles on it.
There is a good service history, and it shows the valve clearances were checked at 20k miles.
The 40k service is in the folder, as is a service a year ago at 50k miles.

I contacted the previous owner by email, and he said he 'thinks' they may have been checked again at the 40k or 50k service.  I'm not so sure, as the service sheet from the dealership doesn't state it.

My question is, after the check at 20,000 miles, when is the bike next due a check, and what is the  normal interval going forward from my current 52500 miles?
I note in the service manual, there is no requirement for the check at 40k miles, and it doesn't state anything after 40k miles.

Many thanks

I used mine on my recent trip to South Spain - worth every penny -
I could definitely feel the benefit of the extra cooling air flow between my rear and the seat !

It appears if you look at your driver manager you may see the dreaded Exclamation point indicating a problem with the fake Prolific chip in the dongle.  I have visited this site: 
https://www.ifamilysoftware.com/news37.html

From there I download the Windows fix in either 32 or 64-bit, and install it.  It adds a shortcut to the desktop so I can reinstall the older driver that works with the device.
