Wanted headligth (damaged is ok) for 1050 -09
« on: 26 November, 2018, 09:41:29 PM »
I need some some parts for headligth unit after melting my own in the oven :430: Yes Im upgrading to Retrofitlab.
My needs are:

http://www.worldoftriumph.com/triumph_motorcycle_parts_locator?block_01=&block_02=100058806-0-2&block_03=560046

2x part number 6, bulb cover
2x part number 10, screw
1x part number 7, snorkel

Maybe someone has a broken unit with scratches etc, I dont mind.
Or maybe there are Motorcycle salvage company specialized on Triumph bikes? Anybody?

How about trying for a Sport headlight instead? (though I know they're hard to find). Plenty of information on 'how to' on here.

Hi Paulie,

I already purchased Retrofitlab kit. Now I need only spares for original headligth to fix my mistakes.

And even having them seems to be very hard.

Can you name any bike salvage company in Europe? I dont know the rigth term, maybe thats why I couldnt find other than one in Holland.

Problem you got mate is that most salvage yards will only be interested in selling you a complete headlight.

Fowlers Bristol (Triumph Dealer), are showing stock of the covers (T2707580) and screws (T2707509), but not the snorkel,(T2700397)  Gonna cost you 20 odd plus postage though.

I find continental bike breakers very pricey. that's why I tend to buy any bits in the UK. If you do a search on eBay UK for Triumph Tiger 1050 in the bike parts section, you should find a few places advertising breaking the whole bike. There's at least 2 quite well-known ones, one in Essex and one in Lincolnshire.

I have a complete headlight unit which I took off my 2013 T1050 @ 700miles when I fitted TS lights. However  it's probably more than you need, and the postage to Finland could be prohibitively expensive?
