Max load of a 2002 Trophy 1200?

I am comparing various touring bikes before a possible purchase and would like to know the max load (or GVWR) for the Trophy. I can't seem to find the info on Google. Anyone have a manual handy?

Hi just finished a huge tour across Europe on one, 1 kilo per glove box, 10 kilo's per rear panier, rear rack as per manufacturers recommendation. I had 30 kilo camp gear on no problem. all up bike weight was with rider and all gear 4oo kilos! No problems, except dont ride at low speed 10 -20 kilo per hour, feels like brick. set up was hard suspension, 46 PSI rear tyre, 38 PSI front, but make sure tyres are good brand, I recomend Metzler tourers any day to any one. As for GVWR just ring a large Triumph dealer dealer, service department and ask for spec's. other than that, I would just say use common sense ad keep weight as low as possible on the bike. When all loaded up and going over the Alps, dont be scared to give it grunt around sharp hair pin bends. It will love it and be alot safer. To low a speed and hesitation is a receipy for disaster on a tourer. But the best tourer to d the long miles in this price range. Terry Australia

1200 trophy stalls when I select a gear

If it goes in gear but the engine cuts out then either your sidestand switch is faulty (does the pin get pushed in when the stand is up - sometimes a bolt falls out and the switch pivots out of the way so the stand won't push it) or you clutch switch is faulty and the bike thinks the cltch is not pulled when you select gear.

Tyre pessure kawasaki zzr1200

Look at the sidewall of both tires. There will be a 'MAX PSI' embossed on the tire. It will probably say Max 45 PSI. At 45psi the bike will ride like a rock. At 15psi it will ride really squirrely. Find a psi at which you feel the bike handles well and rides well. One rider may weigh 125 pounds and the next rider may weigh 300 pounds. The best psi for each rider will be different due to weight. Chances are that 30 to 35 psi will do the trick.

Triumph Trophy 1200.... The battery is drained of power, so much that while I am riding it at hwy speed the bike shuts down. I have a trickle charger on the battery making sure it is fully charged before...

You have a pretty heavy drain on your battery. Find the fuse box. Remove all the fuses. With volt/ohm meter, read each fuse socket to find which one is drawing the power - when you find it ... investigate the circuit to find the short.

It may be that you are not making power ... your rectifier may be shorted which not only prohibits charging ... in some circumstances, it will actually cause a short to ground.

I can not afford 100 dollars to have my oil changed on my 02 Triumph Trophy 1200. I am trying to fing the location of the oil filter and am not sure if I will have to remove the skirt toget to it.

$100.00??? find a different mechanic.

Here is what you do ... go to the bike shop ... pal up with the counter person ... tell them you would like to look at a Triumps filter to see if it is the same as yours ... Buy theirs if you want ... he or she did help you. Then go looking.

Yamaha v max 2003 1200 was working great...turned it off now it will not start....battery comes on lights and so forth are one but bike will not turn over....

possibly a problem in the clutch\side stand\neutral safety circiut, use a multi meter to check the switches go on and off , and check for loose plugs or damaged wiring

Trophy 1200 overheating low mileage!

hey, just finished huge ride across europe on one. Look at radiator and water pump, check oil levels and type of oil used. sounds like a blockage in water pump and or, radiator or hoses. Check electrical fan is running after bike stops? If fan is not working the bike will over heat as it requires fan to draw air trough the radiator constantly. Terry Tourer Australia

Exhaust for trophy

If you want LOUD,then D&D's are what you're looking for.Staintune from Australia makes a nice sounding muffler for the Trophy,but they are pretty expensive.I went with the Trident mufflers from England and am quite happy with them.I think Thunderbike from New Zealand also makes a silencer for the 1200 Trophy.
