Triumph & BSA Part Numbers
Triumph Part Number Conversion
In 1973 Triumph introduced a numerical part numbering system which superseded the old alpha-numeric system. For these earlier models the following information will help to find the new number. Prefix letters have been converted to numeric prefixes, as shown in the table below. We use a plain dash - to separate part number fields.
OLD TO NEW NUMBERS EXAMPLES::
Dxxxx converts to 60-xxxx D4250 becomes 60-4250
Exxxx converts to 70-xxxx E4576 becomes 70-4576
Exxxx converts to 71-xxxx E12599 becomes 71-2599
Fxxxx converts to 82-xxxx F9356 becomes 82-9356
Fxxxx converts to 83-xxxx F13245 becomes 83-3245
Hxxxx converts to 97-xxxx H2091 becomes 97-2091
Sxxxx converts to 21-xxxx S413 becomes 21-0413
Txxxx converts to 57-xxxx T1435 becomes 57-1435
Wxxxx converts to 37-xxxx W354 becomes 37-0354
BSA Part Number Conversion:
From the mid 1960's on, BSA adopted a standard numbering sequence which follows the pattern of 2 digits, a dash, then 4 digits, e.g. 71-2790. Prior to this BSA used two other part number formats, the early system used less than six digits so converting to the news system, zero's to added. The later system preceded the original number with additional codes. To convert these to the new system, only the last six digits are used. Here are some examples.
Numbers less than 6 digits:
2-2582 becomes 02-2582
15-152 becomes 15-0152
2-79 becomes 02-0079
Numbers more than 6 digits:
11642-2631 becomes 42-2631
