    I have since called one other dealer, who indicated "around $2000 plus tax". When I told him it sounds expensive he revealed that estimate included valve balancing (adjustment not just inspection) , he said that he had not had a Trophy come through for a. 20,000 that did not need valves balanced.
      My estimate included the balancing work.

    Just had mine done recently. $1365.xx that included shimming (adjusting) valves.  If I had removed the plastic cladding I could have perhaps reduced the labor costs.  (The Triumph mechanic had not had a lot of experience working on Trophys (Tigers yes, Trophys,no) and he did not enjoy learning how to remove and re-install the cladding.  :008:)

    I'm other side of the pond and was quoted 1,100 GBP for the 20k service from our triumph dealership. For reference my annual service which was done yesterday was 214 GBP.

    That sounds a bit much for the 20k service.  I just had the 100k service completed and none of the previous have been over $1200.  A few valve shims had to be replaced each time.

    The dealership I'd gone to for an estimate displayed a misleading placard on the service depo wall. Labor Rate is $86 in large font. Below it, in a small font "half-hour" with a minimum charge of a half hour.
     
    And estimate was roughly $1800 and change.

    At least they don't mark up parts. Their service kit was a few $$ more than what I got from Hermy's.

    Bonkers to say the least!

    I've since got a service kit from Hermy's and plant to perform my own service.

    To close the loop here: I went ahead with the service, and will pick the bike up Tuesday. The dealership hourly rate was $150/hr contributing to the $1825 estimate. They have reported back that the valves were within specification so no balancing or shimming required.
