I know very little of modern Triumphs besides having admired some of the machines I’ve seen here in Hong Kong many times – they’re very nice looking bikes. But from what some of the guys have explained, the stock tail lights on these bikes, especially the Bonneville and Thruxton models, aren’t exactly the most attractive to many owner’s eyes. Therefore a popular modification is to replace the ‘ugly’ stock light unit with a traditional Lucas 564 style lamp that is more in-keeping with the classic look of the rest of the bike. Having looked at a number of photos of the bikes I can see what people mean!
A couple of my LED boards are being installed on Triumph Bonneville’s and Thruxton’s as I write this. Have a look at the photo gallery below to see some shots of one of the LED light conversions installed on a 2010 Bonneville SE (many thanks to Graham for sending me these pictures of his bike). It would be great to put a gallery together of your bikes with the Lucas 564 LED conversion installed, so do please get in touch with your pictures.
A big thank you goes to the guys on the TriumphRAT forum for making the connection between their nice new Triumphs and my LED light conversions. Cheers for drawing this to my attention and I would be only to pleased to see my light units fitted to some modern bikes too.

The Lucas 564 LED light boards are available to puchase in my online store here on the Matchless Clueless website by clicking here. There are various connector options designed to simplify installation on classic bikes, but for modern Triumph models you’ll need the BAY15D adapter which will allow it to plug straight in to the normal bulb socket. The total price for the 12v LED light board and optional BAY15D adapter is only £29.95 plus P&P and this includes everything you need to install the light in your existing Lucas style tail lamp.

Here are some pictures of modern Triumph motorbikes with Lucas 564 style rear lights fitted and with one of my LED light board conversions installed.
