Rain-X manufacture a number of different products.

WARNING DO NOT use Rain-X "GLASS" on Plastic motorcycle screens, or visors.

This Warning from Rain-X's own web site :

Q : Can it be used on transparent plastics ?
A : Rain-X Rain Repellent it not generally suitable for use on plastics.
The increasing variety of various coatings applied to plastics makes it impossible to pre-test
for compatibility under all conditions, and users should satisfy themselves by treating an area
outside the normal area of vision. Please note that constant, repetitive use should be avoided
due to the possible formation of stress cracking, especially on clear, curved sections,
however, Rain-X Plastic Water Repellent is suitable for use on plastics.

Q : Can it be used on motorcycle helmets or windscreens ?
A : Only Rain-X Plastic Water Repellent should be used on motorcycle helmets and windscreens.

Rain-X "PLASTIC" is the product to use on the Trophy Screen, and your helmet visor :

Division399 :

First of all please note that the "@" Tag before a Username is not used on this Forum -
I think it's from Twatter  :164: or some other Social Media channel !

To contact a Member directly - use the "Private Message" feature,
otherwise the Member must actually visit the page and read the message.

Thanks for the Photo's - As suspected it shows the Front Forks have also been lowered,
so you will need to re-position those when you refit the original Drop Links.

Unless the Side Stand is adjustable, and can be made longer,
you would also need to refit the original Side Stand.

Putting the Trophy on the Centre Stand seems difficult for some Members
and there is a certain technique involved - with the bike lowered it will be even harder to do !
( Topic with Video : HOW TO: Put the Trophy onto the Centre / Center Stand !

With regards to the Suspension Calibration question -
Yes, the system will automatically adjust to the new height the next time it calibrates.

Owners Handbook, Page 55 :

The system will re-calibrate the damper adjustment motors
each time the ignition is turned on,
and the pre-load adjustment motor after every 50 ignition on cycles,
once the engine is started.

Damper adjustment motor calibration takes approximately 2 - 3 seconds,
and pre-load motor calibration takes around 20 - 30 seconds.

Triumph Trophy - General Chat / Re: Bike cover

I see one eBay seller has the XL CV207 for GBP15.

Be wary of a London based eBay Seller advertising these,
who has some Negative "Feedback" comments including
recently sending the wrong size cover more than a week
after the order was placed, and then becoming abusive towards the buyer !

Adding to my comment earlier about there being no change to the Part Number,
that probably should have said "recently".

Part Number T3331400 was superseded on a number of Models by the current Part - T3331520
and while I don't have a date for the change, I have found references to this back in 2019.

They are shown as available to order from Hermy's Triumph eStore

Hi Division399 and :400: to the Club !

Reversing the Lowered modification is easy enough,
by replacing the two Drop Links with the correct length :

Often these will appear in the "Items For Sale" section of the Forum, by Owners
that have lowered their Trophy with no intention of ever reverting to original condition.

Otherwise they are Triumph Part Number T2057605,
available to order from any authorised Triumph Dealer.

The other thing to check would be whether the front Forks have also been lowered.

This would be obvious by looking at the top of the forks, where the
Fork Outer Tube ( Not the Cap ) should be level with the top of the upper yoke.

Finally, check to make sure the Centre Stand and / or Side Stand have not also been lowered
by having sections cut out and welded back together ( Centre Stand ) or an adjustable Side Stand
( such as "Soupy's ) fitted, as these will need to be reverted when you raise the bike back up !

Cheers  :821:

No change to the Part Number ( Still T3331520 ) but there has definitely been a change.

A couple of years back I noticed a change in appearance from a shiny silver to a duller grey,
and you may well be correct that some sort of new heat treatment is the reason for that,
to make the Part harder and less likely to break.

I enquired of Triumph if they had changed the material used, and the answer was "NO" !
