The OP said his 2017 Trophy had only been ridden for 1200 miles
so I doubt very much whether it had an Oil Change and the “wrong”
oil was put in by the previous owner !

I think it’s more likely to have been for the reason already explained,
but this does ( also ) highlight the importance of using oil of the correct specification.

Semi or fully synthetic 10W/40 or 10W/50 motorcycle engine oil
which meets specification API SH (or higher) and JASO MA,
such as Castrol Power 1 Racing 4T 10W-40 (fully synthetic) engine oil,
sold as Castrol Power RS Racing 4T 10W-40 (fully synthetic) in some countries

My supplying Dealer uses FUCHS Silkolene Pro 4 10W-40
Extreme Protection Fully Synthetic Ester Oil.

I don’t ride often enough at night to warrant carrying out this modification,
but I would like to seem some Photo’s of what the switches look like
in the dark - if that’s possible ?

Agreed Saddle Tramp - I was just going by the Good Book !

Maybe instead of writing :

"If the purpose of fitting the K&N version is to reduce the number of times
or frequency that the Fairings and Fuel Tank have to be removed....."

I should have written :

"If the purpose of fitting the K&N version is to reduce the number of times
or frequency that the Fairings and Fuel Tank should be removed....."  :156:

That's a great Video of removing the "Skin" ( Fairing ) - Did anyone else spot
the one screw that actually doesn't need to be removed ? !  :164:

Ok - K&N Air Filter - presumably the one that
“can” be left for 50,000 miles before being cleaned.
( Less in dusty or other harsh riding conditions )

This in itself doesn’t necessarily make the K&N Filter
any “better” than the OEM Filter.

The original question was whether there was an easier way
to change the Air Filter - the answer is NO.

If the purpose of fitting the K&N version is to reduce the number of times
or frequency that the Fairings and Fuel Tank have to be removed,
where the OEM Filter is specified to be changed every year or 10,000 miles
then that is a false assumption, as they still have to be removed Annually
or every 10,000 miles to Inspect the Spark Plugs and balance the Throttle Bodies.

Update :

Having still heard nothing back from Triumph or the Vehicle Safety Branch ( VSB )
I chased this up recently and had a reply today indicating that there has beeen a delay
in progressing this, due to the Member of staff at VSB being away from work.

The case has now been reallocated to another Member of staff who I am in contact with,
and I am hopeful that I will be able to provide more information soon.
