TTSE still in the workshop
« on: February 09, 2014, 01:31:37 pm »
The stuffed gear lever has had me off the bike for 9 days now waiting for the new bolt. (Think I am about the most distant forum member from Hinkley). I should have told them to drill it out and put a fix in with a helicoil, but no doubt non-Triumph bits will affect the warranty.

I have had to commute 140km round trip for my last four night shifts. Drove my tin top for three trips, but nearly fell asleep on the way home a couple of times. So, got my wife's Honda 750 custom low rider out of the shed and rode that. Loud pipes nearly deafened me. AND THERE WAS NO MUSIC. I must have looked like some oversized praying mantis roaring down the road. At least I never fell asleep.

COME HOME BABY, I MISS YOU :161:. I want my TTSE back.
Don't grow up, it's a trap...

mmm, looked like some kind of oversized praying mantis...on your wife's bike?  Are you implying she also looks like a praying mantis when she rides the Honda?  Good thing she isn't on this forum :001:

Seriously though if the Triumph dealer does the repair it seems as though the warranty should hold.  Of course if the repair is done correctly you shouldn't have to worry about the warranty on the lever anyway

Hello Tropy59, what are the chances of breaking the same thing on the same day?
I also have been waiting 9 days for a bloody bolt, a simple oversize head bolt.
I have seen the bike and the broken bolt section has been removed and helicoil has been placed in and is waiting for the new bolt. :157:
I have a ride along the Great Ocean Road on the weekend of 22/23 Feb and my dealer will hopefully have a bolt by then or as backup Mr Coconut may also come through.
Very frustrating...I feel your pain.  :173:
