    high mileage

    do any of you have a trophy with 100,000 miles. What is the highest mileage trophy you have heard of. I'm very curious to know how some of you may have put high mileage numbers on your bike. and what it took for maintenance and repairs to get there. Id like to find out about long term reliability with the trophy chassis, suspension and engine.

    I'm coming from a Goldwing and never had any reliability concerns. Trophy seems like an easy bike to maintain but have concerns about longevity and availability of parts.

    I plan on keeping mine cranked up for a while. I am enjoying the ride and looking forward to many miles, The service intervals of 10,000 seem high to me. How often are you gents changing your oil. I am planning on 4000 to 5000. How many miles are you getting from tires and brakes. Is it true that the trophy eats rear tires.

    I change my oil at the Factory recommended interval of 10,000 miles, and get a professional laboratory analysis each time that confirms that the oil is still in great condition when itís drained. I do use a premium Ester based Synthetic Oil: Motul 7100 Series 10W40. The extra cost vs. a conventional synthetic oil is easily justified, given the results. I ride my Trophy more than 10,000 miles per year, so the annual oil change recommendation does not come into play in my case.

    Although I have only accumulated 30,000 miles in my 23 months of Ownership, I donít see that brake and tire wear is any different than the other sport touring motorcycles that I have owned. In my experience, wear on those items are much more dependent on the rider than the motorcycle.  :008:

    If you are interested in accumulating high mileage on your Trophy, I cannot stress highly enough the importance of performing all of the recommended maintenance per Triumphís schedule. There are many riders that I know that scrimp on needed maintenance, only to complain when they start having mechanical issues. Perform the necessary maintenance on time, and you will have a much better chance of achieving a long term relationship with your Trophy.  :164:

    If you are comfortable with a shorter oil change interval, by all means stick to it. With modern designs and full synthetic oils, the 10k interval is still very conservative. I have no reservations of going the full 10k or even over by a bit.
