Hi everyone. Currently riding an Explorer for the last 18 months, and am thinking about my next bike, a Trophy is on the list. Did you guys have the issue with the cylinder head recall? How's ownership been for the early adopters.
Thx in advance.

Hi there and welcome....

Trophy will be a great choice.....

There have been a few issues with some of the early models.... thinks like fuel tank leaks.... fork oil seals.... Throttle Position Sensor failures.... I don't recall anyone talking about head problems....

Welcome, have owned the Trophy for 6 months now (today) and found it the best ever bike I've had  (been riding since 1972)
Suggest you get a demo and road test it, pretty confident you will really enjoy yourself  :002:

Another post talks about head recall but have been assured it does not apply to trophies.  Most early problems seem to be on exported bikes but not solely.  The biggest problem seems to be the TPS but when changed seems great only a few uk bikes seem to be affected though.  I have no problems so far with a launch model.

Hi and  :400:

As others said: make yourself comfortable with a testride and enjoy. Been riding mine for 6 months now with no issue what-so-ever.

Hi

What a great screen name!

The head issues were resolved by the time the trophy came along as far as I understand.

The head problem was sorted before the Trophy was launched. According to my dealer all Trophies have the new type head  :087: :087:
