Triumph Trophy - General Chat / Re: sold my trophy

Sorry to see you go - Glad to have been of help !  :028:

Take care, and stay safe - whatever you ride  :169:

Cheers  :821:

The Rear Brake Pedal should definitely activate the Brake Light.

As Saddle Tramp says, the problem may lie with the switch needing adjustment or being faulty,
and that is probably the most likely cause, but it could also be that the Rear Brake Switch Relay is faulty,
or there is some other wiring problem.

The Rear Brake Switch Relay is behind the right side cover.

Hi Novocastrian, and :400: to the Club !

I used to have a "V" Reg 900cc Trophy ( British Racing Green ),
which was great, but I definitely prefer this one  :169:

Cheers  :821:

Hi again,

Its up to you which Section of the Forum you Post in, just use a bit of common sense !

e.g. the List of works needed on your Trophy at 42,000 miles could go in the
Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechaniccal Issues Section.

The "Making a DIY Dog Carrier" Topic could go in the :
HOW TO: Technical Guides Section,
if it is something you are posting to instruct other Members on how to make one,
or could equally go into the :
Accessories and Products Section for a more general discussion on the Topic.

The "Triumph Trophy - General Chat" Section is reserved for Triumph Trophy related Topics only.

Posts made in the wrong Section, or in the General Chat Section, when they would be better
suited elsewhere, generally get moved by the Forum Administrator or Moderator.

Cheers  :821:

Take Care  :821:

Triumph Trophy - General Chat / Re: WING MIRROR GLASS REPLACEMENT
« on: December 05, 2018, 04:41:19 PM »
I doubt very much whether Halfords would have a Mirror Glass to fit.

They might offer you a sheet of Acrylic ( Plastic ) Mirror that can be cut to shape with a pair of scissors,
but don't waste your money on those - the reflected images are usually far too distorted to be of any real use !

I did find this Company though :
( I have no knowledge of them, or connection to them - just found them by "Googling" ) :

Car Door Mirrors UK

They have two services that might be useful - Custom cut mirrors from a pattern you send them,
( which are presumably backed with adhesive to stick over the broken glass, but ask to make sure ! ),
and a Repair Service - where you send the old mirror to them and they replace the glass.

It might be worth using their Contact Page to enquire about potential costs,
compared with buying a new one from Triumph at around 70 !

They are based in Middlesex, so not a million miles from you in Romford !  :028:

Let us know how you get on if you decide to use them - could be useful to other Members  :169:

Cheers  :821:

The Mirrrors are not designed for just the glass part to be to replaced.  :110:

Removal of the Mirror assembly requires the Instrument Fascia to be removed.

See this article for details of how to do that :

HOW TO: Fitting Triumph Sat Nav Mount .......

The securing bolts for the mirror are then acccessible -
Remove the three lock nuts and washers then remove the Mirror assembly. 

New Lock Nuts "should" be used when refitting - tightened to 4 Nm.

Think you may have missed my sense of humour after your little Typo :

"Viola" & "Fiddling" - See below !  :028:   :008:
