Recall done - engine now noisier than before - anyone else?
« on: April 27, 2014, 10:45:24 am »
Picked my Trophy up yesterday, and must say I was struck by how much noisier it is now. It's not an unpleasant noise, just more of that "diesel clatter" we've come to know and love. Engine's got an extra one year's warranty, so if it gets worse still, I guess they'll have to do something.

My storage compartment's packed up since its trip to Hinckley, and the one year service was completed on the bike's return, so I think I'll pop in and mention it early next week.

That doesn't sound right.  My bike was much, much quieter after the head replacement.  These are mechanical things manufactured with tolerances of a thousandth of an inch, there should be any noticeable difference from one to another.

I agree with Ernest. I had not considered my engine to be noisy before the recall but after wards I realised how noisy it had been as it was much quieter.

Mine was much quieter too, and still is..

I'm attaching a copy of the tech bulletin.  Make sure they used the correct kit... and installed the oil restrictors.  Not sure what their function is, but suspect it is to keep oil in the top end longer....

That does not sound right (no pun intended) when I picked mine up it was like a different bike it was and is so quiet
