Default Triumph Windshields.

JUst recently purchased a windshield for a triumph speedmaster 2011. The part I was billed for was A9701219 but the part on the bike is A9701239. I called the dealer and he informed me it is the same part. Does anyone know if there is a difference in these two windshields.

Triumph commonly changes part numbers.

And to add to the fun, even if the part is common to more than one model, it has different numbers. And not necessarily unique to every bike it is used on.
And I've been told (by "competent authority") Triumph does not plan on releasing parts information or electronic versions of the Service Manuals.

But, back to your question; I don't know. If it looks like what you wanted, and bolts up to the bike without too much fuss, I'd say the Dealer is correct.

Oh man, they made you pay for an A9701219 and shipped a A9701239? Those A-HOLEs.

Triumph dealers have been ripping off their Speedmaster customers by the hundreds by substituting these cheap Chinese knock-off windshields for the read deal. It's all over the boards.

If I were you, I'd get down there and rip somebody a new *******...with a dull knife!

Its.......A FACT!
