The headlight relay on my 2008 Triumph failed the other day, which didn’t really bother me; hey, it happens right? Unfortunately, my friendly neighborhood Triumph shop didn’t have any replacements in stock, and weren’t expecting any for at least another week. Not wanting to wait that long, I trotted down to the local auto parts store and tossed the old one at the counter rat. “Got one of these? “Yeah I do” he said. After the banter I installed my new relay, the lights came on and I was a happy camper. Granted, not all OEM relays are so easily replaced by generic counterparts, but it’s always worth a shot—all you have to know is what relay to use and figuring that out is easy.
