Hi from NZ
« on: December 06, 2013, 02:25:48 pm »
Well I've bought an SE. And guess what... can't take delivery of it until next Wednesday because the fork seals need replacing.

Ah well looking forward to getting it and a long hot summer to put a few decent miles on it.

Hello and  :400:

Better they sort the seals out before you pick it up rather than have to take it back to the dealer later!

Are you sure? The assembly grease leaks out between the fork seals and fork dust caps for around 500 miles and this is NORMAL. Mine stopped leaking at around 400 miles  / 650 KM of riding.

Hi Freefall.
Where did you buy the TTSE from? I'm still trying to make my mind up about going from the SprintGT to the Trophy.
What worries me a bit is do the nz dealers have enough support if the Trophy has issues like some of the experiences shared on this site.
Some pretty keen pricing at the moment here, interest free or demo pricing.
Cheers
Damian.
