    Where do I begin?

    Hi Gang,

    I am preparing to do the 10K served on my TT. My plan is to do everything required and then some. I have ordered a manual, and should have that soon. I have the skins off and am ready to start ordering things. That said, I figure I will start with the fuel filter, plugs and air filter. Is this the best idea? Is it six of one and a half dozen of the other? Maybe there is a better order of things to do? Any advice is helpful!

    Thanks All!

    Don't you mean the 20K mile check ??  The plugs & fuel filter don't need to be replaced @ 10K miles, just the air filter.

    At 20K the valve clearances should be checked, too.

    Take a look at my post on page 5 about the air filter and let me know what you think after installing the new filter.

    Hi ST,

    I was looking at a "Scheduled Maintenance Check Sheet" that I found online. It said to do these things at 10K. I understand that it might be overkill. Is it a total waste of money to do the plugs and fuel filter? I was kind of figuring why not since I have the time and the skins are off.

    I did read a few threads on the air filter. I am expecting it to look pretty good, but for a couple of bucks, I can guarantee that it is perfect.

    I don't know.....thoughts?

    Thanks All.

    Maybe you should wait until you get the Service Manual and have a chance to review the Scheduled Maintenance Table.

    I'm a big fan of PM, but I would wait until 20K miles as far as the plugs and fuel filter are concerned.

    BTW, if you would like to save some $$ you could use an automotive metal canister 5/16" fuel filter.  It's a little shorter than the OEM filter, but if you buy a length of submersible 5/16" fuel injection hose, it should work just fine.  The submersible fuel line is pricey, but the OEM fuel filter goes for about $55.  I'm planning on doing that when it's time to replace my fuel filter in a few years.

    I just did a valve clearance check & adjust.  And I replaced the OEM dual-ground electrode spark plugs with a set of NGK iridium plugs.

    You read my mind ST!

    I was just sitting here thinking I should wait for the manual. Good call!

    I will look into your fuel filter idea. Sounds good.

    How did you plugs look?

    How did your valves look? Mileage?

    Thanks again!

    At 19K miles the plugs looked good, but I made the switch to the iridium plugs.  On the ST Forum, with iridium plugs most guys extend the plug replacement interval.  I'll probably replace mine every 30K miles instead of every 20K miles as recommended in the Maintenance Chart. That will correspond to an air filter replacement.

    All the exhaust valves were a little tight @ 0.009" and 3 intakes were a little tight.  3 intakes were right in the middle of the range.  I have all the intakes in the middle of the range now and the exhausts towards the high end of the range at around 0.012".  Wondering how they all will look in another 20K miles.   On some makes of bikes, I understand not much changes after the first valve adjust.   On my old ST1100 that I acquired @ around 40K miles, the valves were all in the middle of the range, and I have never needed to do any adjustments in the last 60K miles.  The last time I checked 15K miles ago, they were all still in the middle of the range.

    Fatherof2 :

    A few things :

    Before you dismantle the Bike too far, remember that it is easier ( not essential )
    to drain more of the engine oil, when the engine is warmed up and the oil is thinner -
    You need to be able to run the engine for a few minutes to do that.

    You downloaded a Service Schedule "from the Internet" ? !  :015:

    There is a Service Schedule in your Owners Handbook !  :169:

    Note however that there are errors in the Owners Handbook Service Schedule !  :138:

    The GOOD NEWS is that there is a corrected version of the Service Schedule
    right here on the Forum - Here : Servicing Data, Reference Info. & DTC ( Fault ) Codes -
    Go to the first page in that Topic and download "Trophy Forum Service Schedule v0818.pdf"

    In that Topic you will also find a list of Service Items for the parts that need replacing,
    along with their Part Numbers for ordering, although I just noticed the Fuel Filter
    is missing from the list so I will attend to that shortly.

    When your Service Manual arrives, like other official Triumph Trophy Publications,
    there are a number of errors within it.

    More GOOD NEWS - I have compiled a list of all the known errors in all the Publications,
    and these can be downloaded here : Owners, Audio, and Service Handbooks + Service Manual errata

    Each publication has its own Reply within that Topic, so look for the one headed
    "Triumph Trophy 2012 onwards Service Manual, Version 1, Publication T3852790",
    and download the document, "Service Manual errata v2.pdf" which you can then use
    to make corrections to your new printed Service Manual when it arrives !

    Cheers  :821:

    I'd be interested to know if Triumph have corrected those mistakes in an 'hot off the press' one you may buy today?
