99 trophy 1200

Triumph Trophy mailing list
Just acquired this bike, changing fluids etc. Do I have to remove fairing to get to radiator cap? There is a switch on the left console that seems to have a thermometer?, water level symbol on it. What is it and how does it work? Can't find it in haynes manual. I own a few other Triumph's, 66 bonnie, 69 tiger, 79 bonnie. I also have a 76 bmw r90/6.
 

 Thanks, fish.

I have the model of Trophy before yours, so I am not too sure on whether the fairing needs to be removed to access the rad cap, it doesn't on mine. But won't you need to take the fairing off to drain the coolant anyway?
As for the switch, some owners fit a manual fan switch to override the temp sensor and turn the fan on earlier.

David

Hi Fish, Yes the side panel will have to come off, but it is not that simple. You will also have to take some other pieces off before the side panel can come off.  The little tabs on the top gray panel hides some small bolt heads. Use a real small screw driver to force the tab towards the bike's center and the tab will pop out and go flying. More bolt heads inside the glove box. Take off the chin fairing under the head lights. Take off the belly pan under the engine. Now you can take off the side panel with a 5mm and 6mm allen head wrench. Greg

Hi Fish,
Yes, you will need to remove the lower front fairing and the left front fairing to get at the radiator cap.  It's not difficult and you'll get good at it.  Make sure to re-connect the turn signal when you put it back on and be very careful with those plastic tabs on the fairings.  
That gauge on the left console is an add-on.  The bikes came from the factory with only the 4 gauges on the dash (Fuel, Tachometer, Speedometer, Clock).  It likely either is attached to a mechanical thermostat or to an electronic thermostat.  Nice to have if it's working.
