Good, I wasn't sure if the coupon was targeted as I've only seen other coupons after I had an item on my wishlist for a couple of weeks.

Accessories and Products / Castrol Power 1 4T 10W-40 on Amazon

For those of us in the USA using Castrol POWER 1 4T 10W-40 I just received a 30% off offer on Amazon.  This took the case of 6 bottles from $52.95 down to $37.06.  I can live with $6.18 per quart of the stuff.  I'm not sure why the coupon was offered but I have had it in my "wishlist" for some time now and I think Amazon marketing thought it was time for me to push the purchase button.  If you don't see the offer try adding it to your wishlist and see what happens after some time.

Before anyone mentions it, yes I know there are many other oils that can and have been used but I like the way this stuff works.  I fully understand someone knows some guy that has used "weasel slobber" or such in their bike for over 100,000 miles without a problem but I'll stick with stuff I like at a good price.

For those of us in the USA, there's always our friend Harbor Freight:

Often for small parts I've seen Videos where they either use a separate electric oven in the garage or for small parts a toaster oven even from a thrift store uses exclusively for purpose.

The examples I've seen parts came out looking fine as long as properly prepared.

I say you'd be doing something if someone could incorporate wireless charging to the TPMS modules.  Simply park the bike over a charging pad, or even one near each wheel, and resolve low battery issues once and for all.  :038:

Have you checked that the LEDs from superbrightleds don't require a LED Light Load Resistor Kit to work properly on the Triumph Trophy?
I've not installed on the Trophy but understand being "Canbus" it takes care of the issue.  On "normal" systems often one needs to add load resistors or replace the flasher with an electronic one to stop the rapid flash issue having a lower load on the circuit.  I further understand the rapid flash was initially built in to indicate a blown bulb to let the driver know one bulb was out.

For those of us in the USA, I've used superbrightleds.com (no affiliation)

Their site is quite the rabbit hole and you may find you "need" many more bulbs/lamps than originally intended!  :001:

As a side question are the batteries in the TPMS units OK?  Showing Low voltage at times?  I've had a warning light at just a couple pounds low pressure so 11 should have long triggered it.

Triumph Trophy - General Chat / Re: Found a leftover! Need advice

I don't see where you are located but I bought my 2015 new in October 2017 for just over $10k.  These are discontinued bikes so I'd say it's overpriced even "new".  Basically, it's a 4 going on 5-year-old bike that no one has wanted to date at that price.
