Ride Reports and Touring / Triumph SOS App for Smartphones !
« on: June 07, 2021, 10:49:37 am »
Triumph have released a Smartphone App : "Triumph SOS"  <-- Click for details !

Basically it is an Emergency Services ( E.S. ) Contact App, which will activate if the Smartphone
detects that an incident has occurred, interpreted as being one where E.S. may be required.
( i.e. a CRASH  :012: ).

Having undergone extensive testing to demonstrate a lack of False alerts,
the App is approved to contact the E.S. directly, and not via a Third-Party,
or other Contact, thus reducing the notification and response time.

The Smartphone will automatically dial the E.S. and provide GPS Location.
The E.S. operator will attempt to communicate with the Smartphone owner,
to provide an opportunity to cancel E.S. deployment, and / or provide further information.

This is a PAID Subscription service - in the U.K the cost is currently GBP 3.99 per month,
and is currently available to use in the UK, Europe, ROI, North America ( USD $4.99 per month ),
Australia and New Zealand.

The service can be used by ANYONE, however TRIUMPH Owners, get their first 3 MONTHS FREE !  :152:
( Validated by providing Triumph Motorcycle VIN Number ).

The App has a number of other useful features such as :
  • Worldwide Route Recording, Editing and Sharing
  • Full Screen Routes with Ride Stats
  • Export & Share .gpx Files
  • Explore, Discuss and Share Community Recorded Routes
  • Profile Management

Note : READ and comprehend the Terms & Conditions of use,
particularly all the "Disclaimer" information, before using !

Cheers  :821:

Having recently bought some new Pannier covers to replace the originals
( they were getting a bit scratched  :138: ) I needed to replace the "Union Flag" stickers I had on them.

The original stickers I used were a "domed resin" type,
the same type and size that Triumph used on the sides of the Fairing
of the previous Trophy Model, as well as on earlier
Triumph Daytona, Speed Triple, and Sprint Models.

They measure 28mm wide x 18mm tall :

The Triumph Part Number for these is T3900074 but they currently Retail at
around GBP 7.00 EACH which is quite expensive for what they are !

I found a Company that produce this type of sticker, but they had a
minimum order quantity, so I now have several spares available
that might be of interest to other Forum Members / Triumph Owners !

I will sell them in Pairs ( 2 x stickers ) for just GBP 4.00 a pair INCLUDING UK Postage. 
( Postage outside the UK would be at whatever the additional cost is ).

Send me a Private Message to enquire !

Here's some Photo's :

I also had these on my first Trophy SE :

This Photo shows where Triumph fitted them on the previous Trophy Model :

The following Video has been produced to help explain some of the main Features & Functions
of the After Market DealerTool Device.

I recorded this with the device connected to my 2016 Triumph Trophy SE,
with a Cold engine, and NO Fault Codes ( DTC's ).

Please note : I am NOT ( and never have been ) a Triumph or DealerTool employee,
and have produced the Video and comments based on my own experiences of using it.

Disclaimer : The Video is posted here to help other Owners appreciate some of what the
device can do, and provide a few reference / base line figures of various Sensor Readings etc,
however the Device should only be used by a competent person, and at their own risk.

Notes :

The Trophy uses a "Ride by Wire" system, where the Throttle Twistgrip is not connected
directly to a set of carburettors,  but comprises a Potentiometer that sends Signals to the
Main ECM ( Engine Control Module ), which uses additional data from numerous other Sensors
including a Barometric Pressure Sensor, Ambient Air Temperature Sensor, Coolant Temperature Sensor,
O2 ( Lambda ) Sensor, MAP Sensor, Crank Position Sensor, Gear Position Sensor, Road Speed Sensor etc, to determine precise engine settings for the Fuel Injection and Ignition Timing.

You can see an effect of this in the video - where, despite applying Full throttle at the Twistgrip,
the ECM does not command the Throttle to fully open.
From rest, with a cold engine, immediately opening to Full Throttle would cause poor engine running,
so the throttle opening is reduced as determined by the ECU taking account all of its Sensor data.

DTC's : The Video states that DTC's can be displayed ( but not reset )
on the Trophy Instrument Panel without needing any other equipment.

"How To's" Technical Guides / HOW TO : Remove the Instrument Panel
« on: May 08, 2021, 12:26:01 pm »
Removing the Trophy Instrument Panel

To fit ( or remove ) the Triumph Sat Nav bracket and / or a wired Sat Nav system
attached to the Bracket, or access the Instrument Pack Connections, and other components,
the Instrument Panel needs to be removed.

Unless stated otherwise all Bolts have a 5mm Allen Key
type head, though I recommend the use of one of these :

  • Remove the Screen - Two Bolts for each of the Screen Arm Covers,to reveal a third central bolt. 
    Recover the white Nylon spacers from the central bolts.
    After removing the screen, recover the six rubber washers from the arms -
    which might be stuck to the inside face of the screen !

  • Remove the Battery Cover : A Single Bolt then lift upwards and rearwards
    to disengage the front pegs from their rubber grommets.
    Check the Grommets don't get dislodged or stay on the "Pegs".

  • If you are going to be working on any electrical circuits dosconnect the Battery.

  • Take measures to protect the Fairing Paintwork by placing a cloth
    over painted areas to prevent them getting scratched
  • Remove the Glove Box - One external Bolt, and One Internal bolt at the forward edge,
    then lift up and rearwards as for the Battery cover, checking those Grommets.

    Turn the handlebars fully left and squeeze the clutch lever to aid removal,
    then disconnect the Glove Box electrical connections :
    Peel off the Rubber Cover for the Accessory Power socket and pull the connector away,
    Depress the silver spring wire at the side of the USB Housing to release it,
    ( DON'T try to remove the Spring wire - you WILL drop it somewhere difficult to retrieve ! ),
    and pull the connector away from the housing.
    Rotate the connector for the Lock Solenoid so the latching  "barb" can be depressed
    with a small flat bladed screwdriver, and pull the plug out of the housing.
    NOTE : This MUST be reconnected when refitting the Glove Box,
    before screwing the Glove Box back in place and closing the Lid, otherwise you will not be able
    to ( easily ) open the Glove box to access the Internal securing screw !

  • Remove both Front Indicator units by folding each mirror out ( grasp the outer edge
    of the mirror and fold it out towards the side of the Fairing ).

    Disconnect the wiring connectors for each Indicator bulbholder by depressing the silver spring
    wire and pulling the connector away from the bulbholder ( similar to the USB Connector ).

    Remove the single large headed bolt securing each Indicator in place -
    Hold the Indicator in place when removing the bolt so the Indicator
    does not fall out and drop to the floor where it might be damaged !

    Carefully swing the outer edge of the Indicator Unit away from the bodywork, then move
    the Unit sideways away from the Headlamp to release the locating peg at its inner end.

  • With the Indicators removed a single bolt is revealed securing the painted panel
    below the mirror pods : 

    Remove that bolt and then carefully ease the panel towards the front of the bike,
    to release another of those pegs from a rubber grommet. 

    Note the various tabs around the edges of the Panel, and how they engage for later reassembly - Particularly the rearmost  flat tab that can be broken off if not properly engaged when refitting !

  • Next, the black lower Mirror surrounds need to be removed.

    There are 3 bolts, two on the lower side edge, and one that is now visible after removing
    the previous painted panel, that screws into the Mirror pod :

    After removal of the three bolts, the part can be carefully separated from the rubber protection piece,
    by pulling it way, taking care not to scratch the Fairing paintwork :

  • Inside each of the Mirror Pods there is a black plastic Cross Head screw that must be removed.
    These are just above where the large headed Indicator Unit bolts were removed from
    as in the Photo below ( Right side shown ) :

    Unscrew them carefully so as not to damage the screw head - they can be helped out by pushing from
    the other side of the Mirror Pod.  Recover the plastic expanding inserts that they are screwed into.

  • There are two further bolts to be removed - one on each side, within the Mirror Pods,
    but further towards the inside of the pod, that bolt back into the rear of the Instrument Panel.

    They are fiddly to access and undo - especially the one on the right,
    which is to the left of the Radio Antenna base. 

    The bolts can be removed with an Allen Key, but a small 5mm Hex bit
    in a ratcheting holder is much easier ! 

    These two bolts are 20mm long compared to the usual 16mm.

  • Looking at the lower edge of the Instrument Panel there are four bolts to be removed,
    two on each side - one below each Loudspeaker Grill, and one revealed when the lower
    Mirror surround was removed earlier :

  • From the front of the bike, next to the Screen arms, ( which do not need to be removed ),
    remove the four bolts noting that the Inner two bolts are "Patch Locked" with a "Loctite" type
    of compound.  Those two bolts screw into the Instrument Panel Fascia bracket.
    Triumph recommend that the two "Patch Locked" bolts are replaced whenever they are removed.

  • The instrument Panel can now be detached from the front Panel.
    Lay a cloth or towel etc. across the front of the handlebars for protection. 
    The lower edge of the Instrument Panel should be pulled slightly rearwards first,
    then the top edge can be lifted upwards to release it from its tabs around the Upper edge.
    Note that the lower outer edges of the panel will snag on the inside of the mirrors,
    which need to be manoeuvred to help clear them.

  • Note that if NO Sat Nav is fitted, a Blanking piece is released and needs to be recovered
    from the top centre of the Panel.  If a Sat Nav is fitted, take note of its cabling, and the
    Fascia trim piece that needs to be re-engaged with the panel when refitting.

  • You can now see the back of the Instrument Pack and the two electrical connectors
    covered by black rubber shrouds at each side of the Instrument Pack -
    Peel back the rubbers and check the connector housings are pushed fully home and latched,
    or. to disconnect them, depress the catches on the side of the connectors to free them -
    making sure (as with all connectors ) that you only pull on the plastic housings and NOT the wires !

  • Dare I say it - Refitting is a reversal of the above !

This is a blatant "plug" for anyone in the UK thinking of taking advantage of the remnants  of
Winter weather to fit a Sat Nav - ready for the new riding season, that hasn't seen my advert ! .....

I'm selling my Garmin Zumo 595 LM ( which has Full Europe Lifetime updatable maps ),

Rumours are circulating of an impending announcement tomorrow
that some of the Covid travel restrictions are expected to be gradually lifted,
and as soon as it is permitted I will be able to offer a FREE fitting service to the buyer,

Items for Sale / Garmin 595 Motorcycle Mounting Cradle / Wiring Harness
« on: February 10, 2021, 03:59:37 pm »
This is a "previously used" Garmin 595 Motorcycle Cradle,
complete with the four fixing bolts and Lock Nuts,
and the removable Weatherproof cover.

As far as I am aware this Cradle is designed for use ONLY with the 595 Model,
and will NOT accept, for example the 660 Model.

The wiring harness includes connections for :

  • Power supply ( "+" and "-" ) - Can be conected to the Trophy NAV
    Power supply using the Triumoh Accessory GPS Connector A9938122
  • Loudspeaker Output ( 2.5mm Jack Socket -
    Connects to the Trophy NAV Audio Input if required )
  • USB Input ( e.g. for Media / Music files )
  • Microphone Input ( 2.5mm Jack Plug )
  • Audio Input ( 2.5mm Jack Socket )

This is in perfect working order - the cable does show a few marks
from having been fitted previously, though these are not visible
when installed onto the Triumph Sat Nav bracket for your Trophy.

The Mounting Cradle has 4 holes of a standard pattern,
which can be fitted directly onto the Triumph dedicated Sat Nav bracket,
or to a suitable RAM type fitting ( not included ).

The usual RRP for this Cradle is around 35.00 to 40.00

Offered For Sale at 20.00 INCLUDING UK Postage.
