I checked my 2013 and it hasn't got the plug.

I measured the hole diameter at 10.5mm.

I would think a generic plastic plug from ebay would be ok for pennies.

Maybe someone will try an ebay one and post the link.

Thanks for mentioning this because I looked at mine and the plug was half out - it wouldn't of been long before it fell out.

Went to dealer, all 800 on the showroom floor had the plug. The parts manager tried to find it for purchase separately, no luck.

What he means is that it's not a standard stocked spare part and he'd have to order it in from Triumph, he wouldn't make any money on it, would be uneconomic to order, he doesn't think it's a big deal and he really can't be rsed  :008:

Not so Dilbert. I was shown the exploded view of the engine showing # 23 but there is no provision for ordering it separately. You'd have to buy the engine to get the plug. :157:

See above, Triumph Part Number T3450092 - INSERT, ROUND, PLASTIC, 12.7MM

The part will be around 2.15 ($ 2.76), if you order it through your dealer, he will probably have to put it in with a bunch of other spares to make it worthwhile, if you think you really need to get one, then try ordering here : http://www.worldoftriumph.com/triumph_motorcycle_parts_locator?block_01=&block_02=100070572-1-2&block_03=560043
But it'll cost around $50 shipping and import duty  :156:

Alternatively and if your life is incomplete without one, PM your details and I'll order you a couple and send them out to you  :028:

12.7mm = 1/2 inch, so it should be easy to find a plug at a hardware store for pennies.

You'd expect so, or a dob (technical term) of sealant, still not sure what it's sealing up, or why they only have them on the XC versions, but ............
