about to pick...

...up a new 2014.

I know that the dealer prep should cover all service bulletins and recalls but what should I be on the  lookout for before I sign anything?

fnhead--

My bike was delivered with air in the rear brake system and a crack in the left hand lower fairing near the oil filter.  Normally I'd fault the dealer but in this case I don't feel it was his fault because he was up to his eyeballs in leaky fork repair and fuel tank changes.

I picked up my 2014 on December 21st and since there was several inches of snow and ice on the roads a test spin was out of the question. I did go over the paint and plastic very closely and we started the bike and ran through all of the systems that we could without riding. My dealer always insist that you take about a ten mile ride and then return to the shop for a final check. Since this wasn't possible he told me to let him know if I had any issues when I did get that first ride in. I managed 45 miles on New Years day and no problems, everything worked just fine.

Welcome!  And I thought it was heartbreaking to pick up my Trophy in August and put it away late Novemeber after only 8000 miles!!  Killing me, must be mega-killing you!!!   Hopefully this long cold winter will end in an early spring!!!

Hi Head,

I suggest that you verify with the dealer that your Trophy is properly registered with Triumph so that you receive any recall or other service notices and that your warranty is activated. My dealer had forgotten to do that until it came up a few days later during the 500 mile First Service.

Hi fnhead and  :400: to the Club !

There's LOTS of information and help available in here -
don't be alarmed by what can seem to be a lot of problems !
It is quite usual in a forum such as this !

You will see that there have been a few teething problems but Triumph are working hard at putting them right  :169:

If you do have any problems with your new Trophy, use the "Search" button, and if you can't find what you need,
just post away in an appropriate Section, and you will soon have a reply ( or several ! ).

Over in the "HOW TO" Section you will find a Topic : HOW TO : Check the most Common Faults and Issues"
that can often provide the answers  you may need :028:

There's also a "New Purchase Checklist" topic that you may find interesting  :169:

Hi fnhead and welcome!

It's a great bike and you will love it!

Yes there have been a few teething problems, as with any new product! But don't pay too much attention to the nay Sayers. What problems there are Triumph are resolving!

Life is too short to worry.... Get out there and ride!
