    I wonder what ratio of Triumph Trophies actually need the adjustment at inspection time.  Its a lot of money to fork out for a mechanic to say the valves were within tolerance. (I know its a catch 22, because you would still need to strip the bike to to verify that).  But is it more common that they need adjusted or not?

    There hasn't been much activity on the forum for a couple of days. Must mean everyone's happy with no Trophy problems. Hope it stays that way, no problems that is. Cheers. :821: :028:

    Hahaha it must be that according to the territory it is cold or wet asphalt, because what I am, if I had problems:

    The first did not work the two front headlights ... Failure of the cable that gives tension to the two headlights.

    Solution: Not to disassemble half of a motorcycle and access the connector under fuel storage, pass a cable from the lighthouse fuse to the handlebar switches.

    The second problem has been to replace the carter under the engine, since there was a small loss of oil.  :821: :821: :821:

     digital, it was you that I was thinking about when I posted up the original message. For some strange reason I thought you might have sold your Trophy and moved on. But that's not the case. Good to see your well and having a few little "niggles" with your bike.  :821: :028:

    Thank you with all my heart for remembering me.

    Don't think that I haven't been about to sell the motorcycle, since I have my parents at home who are very old and my wife and I can't go out anywhere. So I don't even touch the motorcycle.

    I bought a Cupra car and now I go to work in Barcelona by car. so I don't touch the bike.

      Sometimes life gets in the way of having a good time. But as always parents care is more important than bikes. Cheers. :158: :158:
