Lighting, Electrical, and Wiring / Re: Top case lights
« on: Yesterday at 09:28:42 PM »
No problem,

It's entirely up to you as to where you make the connection,
and will make no difference to the operation of the lights,
so you can choose whichever seems the easiest for you to access.

What I was trying to explain is that if you remove the rear light unit
you will see that the wiring from it goes to a multi plug connector.
The individual wires from the Light Unit to the plug are as stated in my first message.

On the other side of that plug, ( the Trophy Harness side ),
the wires are different colours, again as stated in my first message.

So by way of example, for connecting the Admore Brake light wire ( Blue )
you would either connect it to the Blue wire from the Light Unit,
or to the Green wire with Purple Stripe on the Trophy harness side of that connector.

It's a matter of personal preference but I always try not to chop the main harness wires,
and either splice into any sub harness, such as the one from that connector to the light unit,
or make up a "plug and Play" lead as described previously, so that it is easier to return
things to the way they were if you need to, but that's just me !

I hope that all makes sense now !


Triumph Trophy - General Chat / Re: Country of manufacture
« on: Yesterday at 09:01:52 PM »
Hi Easyider4,

There's no easy answer as there is no single Country of manufacture.

Different parts are manufactured and sourced from different Countries.

Triumph have two factories in Thailand where Frames, Swing Arms
Header systems, Plastic injection moulded parts,
fuel tanks and die cast parts are produced,
and where there is also a Paint shop.

Other parts such as all Crankshafts for all Models are made at Hinckley
together with various machining processes such as Camshafts and crankcases.

Other parts are manufactured in other Countries,
for example the Audio system comes from Radio Sound Inc. U.S.
and the Brake Calipers are made by Nissin - a Japanese Company.

There are assembly lines at Hinckley ( UK ) as well as in Thailand
to bring together all the parts for any given Model.

Hope that helps !



I'll be an expert cleaner by then !  :028:

Hi JerseyJeff,

You didn't say which Light Kit you bought but I assume it's the Shad LED-SH48-T-TS (CG) Kit

The rear light of the Trophy is easily removed after unscrewing the white nylon nut underneath
the pillion seat.  Withdraw the rear light unit and you will find the Plug & Socket connector.

The Multi Plug from the Trophy rear light unit plugs into the socket of the Trophy harness.

You then need to decide where to splice the connections in to the Trophy wiring.

The wires of the Trophy Light Unit are coloured differently to those of the Trophy Harness  :112:

The wiring colours at the Trophy Harness Socket and at the Rear Light Multi Plug are :

Main Harness Side
Tail Light & License Plate +veYellow
Brake Light +veGreen / Purple
Ground -veBlack
Offside / Right Indicator +veGreen / White
Nearside / Left Indicator +veGreen / Red

Sub Harness to Light Unit Side
Tail Light & License Plate +veRed
Brake Light +veBlue
Ground -veBlack
Offside / Right Indicator +veYellow
Nearside / Left Indicator +veYellow / Green

( Where two colours are listed the first is the main colour,
and the second is the colour of its stripe ).

This is the connector plug for the Triumph light unit :

From the Admore SH48 Light Kit instructions :

You should now be able to work out where to connect the wires.

NOTE : The reference to "Canbus-equipped motorcycles" may or may not apply.
The problem that could be encountered is that if you connect the Admore RED wire
to the Trophy Tail Light circuit, this may result in the Trophy Cruise control
being disabled, as unexpected voltage could be seen on the interconnected Brake light circuit
( the LED's are combined to provide dual brightness ), as the Cruise control is deactivated
when the brake lights are applied.

There may not be a problem at all, so I would start by connecting the Admore RED wire
to the Trophy Tail Light circuit, but with a temporary connection until you have chance
to get out and test that the Cruise control still works. 

If the Cruise control IS disabled after making this connection, disconnect it
from the Trophy Tail light circuit, and connect it to some other positive supply
that becomes Live when the Ignition is switched on.

Finally, if you want to make a really neat "Plug and Play" installation,
I found a source for the exact Multi plug connector used for the Trophy Rear Light.
They are in the U.S. ( and also ship to the UK for a very reasonable price ! ).

If you buy the male plug, female socket, and pins you can make up your own
interface lead with the Admore wires connected in between the two for a
"Plug and Play" installation.  Here are the details :

Ballenger Motorsports

Parts needed :

1 x CONN-75822 5 Way Connector Plug Kit for NTK AFRM ( Harness Side ) @ US $6.99
1 x CONN-75823 5 Way Connector Receptacle Kit for NTK AFRM ( Sensor Side ) @ US $6.99

Each Kit is complete with a set of seals and pins to solder your wires onto  :028:

No problem - Let us know how you get on !   :028:
