Thank you Sal. I would say about $150 USD or so for everything including the factory Thruxton bracket and block off plates up front.
Lastly, to finish up the rear of the bike…one has many options for the Lucas style tail light and rear signals incorporated with running light capability for improved visibility in back. I will preface by saying this is not hard for those with just some basic wiring and soldering skills. If you don’t possess these, they are easily acquired with a bit of practice. If you don’t want to go there, one of the plug and play turn signal kits are available from our excellent aftermarket supplier companies…where I purchased these parts from ….some having shock mounting signal and running light capability. Plug and play kits are easiest of course but more expensive and you lose some flexibility to customize your wiring options. Also…separate rear harnesses are also now available for those disinclined to fabricate their own. 20 gage stranded wire and the type of bullet in socket connectors I used are available at your local Radio Shack. All considered, you can build your own harness in back however with a bit of thought and the following should help if you want to go there.
If you go toward the beginning of this thread, I show the wiring diagram for the front and rear. There is a 6 pin connector at the mid point under the seat. You want to remove the stock harness from the rear of the bike and do the following.
Even though there are six pins…only five are occupied:
- 2 leads…one to each turn signal hot. (Orange LH, Brown RH) Cut the connectors off at the end of the harness near the factory rear tail light and leave these two leads long so they can easily run to the shock mounted turn signals.
- 1 lead (Red) goes to the rear running light (tail light) Cut this lead short about 4 inches or so from the 6 pin connector
- 1 lead (Blue) goes to the rear brake light. Cut this lead short about 4 inches from the big connector
- 1 factory ground (Black) lead turns into 3 leads which run to the rear of the bike to support the ground for the tail light and each turn signal. Cut this lead also about 4 inches from the big connector….cutting off all 3 black ground wires. Note: Triumph does something that is rather bizarre. If I worked in their engineering department, I would only run one ground to the tail light and separate it in back. Instead, Triumph runs a thicker collection of 3 ground leads under the rear fender to the back light…lol…adds weight, complexity and cost. No need. Also, if you decouple your turn signals and mount them behind the shocks as I did, you now need only 3 leads total running to the rear tail light…one Red, one Blue and one Black.
OK…you are ready to make your new harness. Here is a pic how it looks: I have made more elegant harnesses in the past but this one is decent and works very nicely.
