I started to lose oil from the pushrod seal, when I had just over 200,000 kilometers.

Change the complete assembly of the rear electronic damper. Saying that is not an easy task. With a lot of patience it can be removed and reinstalled without any problems.

You have to follow the instructions in the workshop manual, although I must add that it will also be necessary to remove the panel on the left side where the BMW type socket is anchored and the panel that covers the fuses. The workshop manual does not indicate removing this panel, but it is necessary since the nut of the upper screw that holds the electronic shock absorber will turn and it will be necessary to insert a wrench from the left side that holds that nut.

I was able to get all the screws out with some difficulty and put them back in with a bit more difficulty. At the end, place all its screws, especially those that hold the support of the TES module of the electronic damper.

It is not necessary to remove all the panels on the left and right. Only the small left panel that covers the fuses, the black cover where the BMW-type socket is located, and the small panel on the right that covers the four blue relays.

Once the shock assembly is fully loose you need to figure out how to get it to go through the middle of the Swingarm, note its position for when you have to re-install it as keep in mind that the shock has to go through the middle of the Swingarm and the preload motor has to pass, both of which are linked by the small oil hose.
Thank you, Coconut.

 looks nicely and bright , hopefully that is a waterproof switch
That is the Pre-Load adjuster for the Rear Suspension Unit.

The complete Rear Suspension Unit is quite expensive ( Approx USD $1400 )

The Pre Load Adjuster is shown as an individual component ( Part No. T2057551 ) at Approx USD $780.
Assuming it IS that ( only ) that is leaking, you'd have to remove the complete RSU from the bike to replace it.

It may require a specialist company to replace the part, so it might be worthwhile sending
the complete unit away for refurbishment - if there is one you know of in California ?

Parts : Hermys Triumph eStore / Trophy SE 2-14 / RSU ( Items 1 & 6 )

Cheers  :821:

I think I found out what it is.  It looks like the rear suspension unit.

He can probably get a non-Triumph affiliated opinion from Ecuador Freedom Bike Rentals in Quito.  They have several Tigers in their stable.  Awesome company to deal with.

It was kind of accidental actually.  I was trying to come up with a secure plug for the sockets in the top case and glove box that wouldn't work loose from vibration while on the road and lose power.  I thought if I could make it more snug in the receptacle it would stay put and that was my pea brained idea.  Didn't work in the glove box, but when I tried it in the top case it pulled the receptacle out and there is enough wire to work with to connect the new one.  Now I don't even use the top case, because I travel with a waterproof duffel and waterproof roll top that weigh less than 4 lb total, so it eliminates some of the weight up high that the top case had.

Exactly where I have had similar lights placed for many years. They were originally on the lower fork leg, as seen in the photo of my bike. :062:
