    Parts (un)availability

    Hi. I'm a recent convert from BMW having, within the last year, purchased a 2010 1050.  I am currently trying to source a headlight init and was shocked to find them discontinued by Triumph and generally unavailable.
    Is this the norm with Triumph?
    In over 20 years with Bmw I never once was unable to source spares.
    Thoughts?

    With a bit of modification the TS headlight fits. Maybe why the old one is discontinued.

    Yip thatís the route Iím heading down now🤞
    My initial point was that if I had damaged my headlight in an accident, as opposed to incompetence,  the bike would essentially be a write off due to parts unavailability.

    Fair point, but a 13-year-old bike would get written off for a few scuffs.

    Manufacturers are obliged to carry spares for 10 years after production of a model ends iirc, where should they draw the line?
