Tony, you should read this thread.

There is no parts list per se. The replacement head and associated parts are/were supplied by Triumph at no cost. You should see a Triumph dealer and inquire about a goodwill replacement. Triumph are still authorizing this if you push them. You would likely have to pay the labour costs. Download and print the Service Bulletin attached to the first post and show it to your dealership and check to see if your VIN is within the specified range.

Hey Tony. Contact your nearest (reputable) Triumph dealer and let him know you want your head replaced on your '13 Explorer. Make sure your VIN is within the number range of 602960,(it will be) and mention Service Bulletin 474, which states that if you feel the head noise of your affected engine is to noisy, Triumph will replace the head on your bike. This bulletin covers all 1215 engines in Explorers and Trophys. It is documented that Triumph is still honoring this SB, even if you aren't the original owner. Get it done...

Because I was traveling in China, I contacted the Triumphal dealer in China and he replied that he could only check the recall notice of ECU and side stand, and he would not guarantee you the motorcycle That I did not buy from him, so I want to replace it by myself

The head replacement was never a recall. Not sure why you are choosing this route, but if you are determined to do this yourself then please let us know how you make out. You will probably be the first of anyone who has posted here in the past 6 years to DIY it. You can find parts and diagrams on bikebandit.com

Edit: the head replacement and shim kit part numbers are shown on the service bulletin 474 that I mentioned in my previous post. Part numbers vary by your VIN number. Those part numbers may have been superceded in the years since the bulletin was written. Triumph allowed dealers 8 hours for labor for the head replacement. You will also need the Explorer service manual.

Sourcing the parts will be your biggest challenge,the actual repair is not that difficult ...if your mechanically inclined, you will be fine
