Congratulations harness !  :152:

With the Tire Pressure Monitoring System ( TPMS ) there are a couple of things to consider :

1) When the battery voltage in the sensor drops through use after a few years
you will get a warning message on the Instrument Panel, and eventually no Pressure reading.
Triumph advise replacing the complete sensor, which is expensive, but thanks to the efforts
of our Members there are Topics in the Forum that describe how the battery can be replaced,
though this does require a little careful soldering, and is easier with the earliest type of sensor,
as later sensors had a type of "potting compound" that has to be removed.

Topic here : Replace TPMS Battery

Recently ( in the last year )  the sensor type has been updated again.
I don't have any information on changing the batteries for those.

2) If you are not interested in having the TPMS feature and want to disable it,
then you will need additional equipment to do so, that connects into the Diagnostics "OBD"
socket of the Trophy - which you will find attached to a plastic clip on top of the main battery.

"TigerTool" is FREE Software downloadable via the Forum, and it can be used to not only turn off
the warning messages / disable the TPMS system, but can be used to program IN new sensor(s)
if you were to buy some.  You would need to buy a compatible Connection cable interface from your PC
to the Trophy OBD Socket.  Details and Download available in this Topic :
How To Use TigerTool V3.1 Service Utility Software.

Alternatively there is "DealerTool" which is a commercially available after market package
comprising Windows based PC Software AND an Interface Cable.  DealerTool has many more
functions for Maintenance and Tests than the TigerTool software, and can also disable the TPMS Warning
Messages from appearing, but it can NOT ( currently ) program IN new TPMS Sensors. 
The Interface cable supplied with DealerTool DOES work with the free TigerTool software though,
so consider getting the DealerTool package AND the TigerTool software for the best of both worlds !

Within this Lengthy Topic I posted a Video that helps to explain
how to dismantle the Drag Link at its forward end :

Drag Link failure - rear suspension assembly

Scroll to my post dated 2nd December 2020.

Note that to remove that forward bolt when on the Centre Stand,
the bolt needs to have been inserted from the RIGHT side of the Bike,
with its Nut on the LEFT side of the Bike, so that the bolt can be withdrawn
sufficiently to remove the Link, as shown in the video.

If the Bolt is installed the other way around, there are further explanations
within the Forum of putting the bike on the Side Stand and knocking a bar,
or rod of the same diameter as the bolt through to push the bolt out,
( leaving the bar in its place to support everything ), then pushing the bolt
back through from the other side to displace the temporary bar.

The Trophy can then be placed on the centre stand and the job carried out as in the above video.

Cheers  :821:

To return to "stock" - the lip of each fork outer tube
should be flush with the upper surface of the top Yoke.

Yours look like they have been lowered ( raised in the Yoke ) by about 5mm.

Cheers  :821:

T1218001 IS the genuine Triumph Oil Filter specified for the Trophy.  :028:

Wise move Maca - I'd encourage everyone here to take an Advanced Rider Course.

I did mine with the IAM ( Institute of Advanced Motorcyclists ) and it was
one of the best decisions I made - after buying a Trophy in the first place !  :169:

The course definitely improved my riding skills, and they awarded me with one of these as proof :



Cheers  :821:

Hi Relic1965 and :400: to the Forum !

You won't find many folks in here criticising the Trophy, as we're mostly all big fans !

What are the specific "lot of electrical issues" you mention ?

There has been a Worldwide Recall for an Inspection of the Ignition Switch Wiring,
which actually only affected a very small percentage of the total production,
but any that were affected have been ( or will be ) put right by Triumph.

Other than that there have been a very small proportion overall,
of Owners with some sort of electrical problem. 

The problem with any Forum is that such problems are discussed in detail
to alert others, and to try and obtain solutions, and this can cast a false impression,
just like Holiday Reviews - where people are very quick to report their grievances,
but all the other happy holidaymakers don't report their happiness as widely !

My advice would be to make yourself aware of potential issues so you can be on the lookout
for them, and be armed with the information when you go to view one - take a Test Ride,
and insist on some warranty, even it's only for a few months,
to cover anything that you might not have spotted prior to parting with your cash.

If you haven't seen it yet - this Topic should help :

What to look for when Buying a Pre-Owned ( Used ) Trophy SE

Cheers, and Happy Hunting !  :821:
