New, solid oil cooler pipes for 2013

It looks like Triumph have decided to make the top oil cooler braided hoses into pre-formed solid pipes, much neater. Have a close look at this picture, I imagine they've done the same for the hose on the other side:



This is the previous model for comparison:

would imagine it's been done as a cost cutting measure. Would think that the braided hose was to stop the possibility of the hose fracturing due to vibration. Probably carried out testing to make sure it dosn't.... at least within the warranty period. Before the Thruxton I had a 94 trophy 1200. It was interesting to watch little things being dropped in later years like hydraulic preload adjuster on the rear shock, adjustable hose clamps on the cooling system, less fancy logo on the mirrors ect. Some bean counter is probably paid mega bucks to cut production costs by a few bucks a unit.

I bet it is hard lines at the motor and the cooler connected by a short section of rubber hose. Vibrations would eventually cause a hardline to frail I'd think.

I don't see this as an upgrade over the braided lines used now.

I also notice that there is a speedo cable in the pic as well, are they going back to mechanical?

Yes, it looks as if the cylinder fins have had the edges polished as well as the head.

Well spotted... The new one appears to have deeper fins and those through-bolt tunnels are no longer visible.
