    Need help identifying 2014 TTSE Fluid Leak

    Hello All,

    I noticed a fluid leak recently.  I think I narrowed down the source, but I don't know exactly the part name for this.  I looked in the service manual, but couldn't identify the part.  Could someone please assist?

    I think I found out what it is.  It looks like the rear suspension unit.

    That is the Pre-Load adjuster for the Rear Suspension Unit.

    The complete Rear Suspension Unit is quite expensive ( Approx USD $1400 )

    The Pre Load Adjuster is shown as an individual component ( Part No. T2057551 ) at Approx USD $780.
    Assuming it IS that ( only ) that is leaking, you'd have to remove the complete RSU from the bike to replace it.

    It may require a specialist company to replace the part, so it might be worthwhile sending
    the complete unit away for refurbishment - if there is one you know of in California ?

    Parts : Hermys Triumph eStore / Trophy SE 2-14 / RSU ( Items 1 & 6 )

    Cheers  :821:

    I started to lose oil from the pushrod seal, when I had just over 200,000 kilometers.

    Change the complete assembly of the rear electronic damper. Saying that is not an easy task. With a lot of patience it can be removed and reinstalled without any problems.

    You have to follow the instructions in the workshop manual, although I must add that it will also be necessary to remove the panel on the left side where the BMW type socket is anchored and the panel that covers the fuses. The workshop manual does not indicate removing this panel, but it is necessary since the nut of the upper screw that holds the electronic shock absorber will turn and it will be necessary to insert a wrench from the left side that holds that nut.

    I was able to get all the screws out with some difficulty and put them back in with a bit more difficulty. At the end, place all its screws, especially those that hold the support of the TES module of the electronic damper.

    It is not necessary to remove all the panels on the left and right. Only the small left panel that covers the fuses, the black cover where the BMW-type socket is located, and the small panel on the right that covers the four blue relays.

    Once the shock assembly is fully loose you need to figure out how to get it to go through the middle of the Swingarm, note its position for when you have to re-install it as keep in mind that the shock has to go through the middle of the Swingarm and the preload motor has to pass, both of which are linked by the small oil hose.
    Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.

    Hello All, I'm finally getting around to posting what the problem was.  The dealer said it was a clutch cover seal that was leaking and the wind was blowing the oil backwards making it look like it was the rear suspension unit.  Around $300 to fix.  A lot better than having to replace the RSU.

    Thanks for the update !

    New Clutch Cover Gasket ( T1261430 ) around GBP 10.00,
    Replace "Patch Locked" Bolt ( T3205081 ) around GBP 2.00

    LOTS of Labour charges :
    • Investigation & Identification of problem
    • Remove Fairings
    • Remove Clutch Slave Cylinder
    • Remove Clutch Cover & discard old Gasket
    • Clean Mating surfaces
    • Replace Gasket, Clutch Cover, Slave Cylinder and Fairings
    • Check Oil Level and top up if necessary
    • Test Ride and check for leaks

    There have been several reports from Members over the years
    reporting Engine covers, Crankcase covers etc. with LOOSE bolts,
    and some on new bikes where it was suspected they were not tightened fully at the Factory.

    This serves as a timely reminder for everyone - whenever you have access
    with the Fairigs off - to look for signs of leaks from the various joints
    between engine covers etc, and check their bolts to make sure they are all tight,
    saving the potential cost of having to dismantle parts to replace gaskets / seals
    that could have been "snugged down" if they had been noticed earlier.  :028:
