There is an easier way.  I found that by using a cigar lighter that is a two piece design, removing the nose part of it and placing a rubber washer the right ID over the male thread and threading the front nose piece back on it makes a tool that will pull the socket from the case.  I pushed it into the receptacle and pulling it out resulted in the rubber washer becoming tight enough in the socket for pressure to over come the spring tabs that hold the socket in the case.  I put a dual USB receptacle in it's place and done!

That would have been easier for sure!

Hello All,

I noticed a fluid leak recently.  I think I narrowed down the source, but I don't know exactly the part name for this.  I looked in the service manual, but couldn't identify the part.  Could someone please assist?

I would suggest to your friend that he makes enquiries with
the Triumph Agent in Ecuador and ask them about Parts availability.

He will probably find that Parts are available, but will have to wait for them
to be shipped from the UK, and may have to pay a premium for the shipping costs.

Here's a Link to the Distributor :

Triumph of Ecuador

Cheers  :821:

 :400: To the forum.

Depending on which spare parts, it is difficult to find. But searching, you can always find or opt for other solutions.

Sure enough, that site is the best place for those types of auxiliary lights.

Sorry if some of this is cross-posted from another forum but it was suggested that as my query is Trophy-related this might be a better place to post.

I have a friend who lives in Ecuador and he has the possibility of buying a Trophy (Year 2013). He likes the bike but is concerned that he may not be able to get parts. Does anyone know if parts for the Trophy are easy to get?  He says that he can get the bike serviced but his main concern is the possible difficulty in getting parts.  Also, the bike he's considering is a 2013 year, which seems to be very early in the production run, would it be advisable to avoid 2013 bikes?

Thanks!

Mine hasn’t been working and then realized from the forum I was missing the relay that inserts into relay group on right side of bike behind that side cover, just like the side cover on the opposite side that covers the fuse box.  Ordered it from turn local dealer…still no power.  I tested the two leads on the top case mount and then once I had the old one removed, I tested the two wires connecting to the charger, all had power.  To remove the old one, it’s not cooperative!  There is a YouTube video where the inner shell was removed using a hair dryer to loosen glue…I had a heat gun on mine for 1.5 hours, nothing!  Finally realized that with the inner liner screws removed, I could get a long automotive grommet tool down there to apply pressure to the old socket from below.  And with a second pry tool at the top, it finally popped up.  The new socket was a bit wider so I had to dremel the hole with a sanding wheel.  Be careful though, it just needed a tiny amount of material removed.  This way, you can pop the new one in without having to attach the locking nut below.  You just cut the old wire terminal away and add two spade connectors.
