    Transmission slipping

    Hi, I am new to the forum and to a Triumph.  I recently acquired a 2016 Trophy with 1200 miles on the odometer.  I recently changed the oil and put different brake and clutch levers on . About 5 miles into my ride the revs climbed but not my speed. Eventually it stopped pulling. I took off the clutch lever and re installed and all seems good. Any ideas to why???

    If I change the clutch lever, it may very well not be the same as the original. Note that...

    The lever has a projection that pulses an axis of the clutch master cylinder and this projection pushes the clutch master cylinder more than the necessary travel. Therefore, the clutch is at a point where it is somewhat clutched and down to skid. If I had continued to drive like this for many miles, the time would have come when I would have burned the clutch discs.

    Thank you, I believe I will re install stock levers to be sure.

    Once you have the clutch lever out, make a comparison of the overhang on both levers which is where you push the master cylinder rod.

    When disassembling the handles, be very careful because I think I remember that inside the small rod it has a spring and I think it also has a ball. (I'm not sure about the ball now).

     :400: Tab7166 I would tend to agree with digital that the levers you installed (certainly the clutch) is pushing the master cylinder while the lever is fully out i.e. without any pressure from you. Always better to stick with the original parts  :028:

    Yes, I believe that was the issue, upon inspection there were minor differences in levers and I reinstalled oem levers and all is good now. Thank you again .

    Tab7166, every day we learn things.

    I always compare one to the other what I am going to replace. So I make sure well, if I see any difference, I get to work to build whatever it is so that they are equal to or better than the one I have extracted.
