So long my friends !
« on: August 13, 2014, 03:41:23 am »
My dealer is sending a trailer to pick up the Trophy tomorrow. Issues with drive train !!! When I pick it up it will be brought to the Yamaha dealer and traded in for a new FJR 1300ES. When the bike works it's a great ride but mine isn't reliable. I guess I got the LEMON. Tried to talk to Triumph about an exchange for a new bike. Pete Carlini (Triumph of America) wasn't to concerned about my bikes issues. I was told he was real busy with peoples issues, DUH !!!.
  I want to thank everyone on the sight for the help. Coconut your the greatest and was a big help for me with your how to right ups.
 Also I will have a top box (silver), heated seats, and comfort riders seat. I don't think I will get any extra for these on a trade in. You can email me at chym08@gmail.com if interested.

Sorry to hear it came to this. Dealer support is under valued in decisions to buy or continue to own vehicles when issues come up. I hope you have better luck with the FJR - a great bike choice btw

Carey, Sounds like a bit of a disappointment and I wish you better luck with your new bike. 

What were the drive train issues ?

cheers

Hi carey, 

Sorry to see you leaving after such a bad experience,
and I too hope that someone at Triumph UK is taking notice !

As for my past advice - you're most welcome  :028:

One more for you before you go - you might want to consider removing your email address from your post,
( Just go back to the message and Click on "Modify" ), to remove the risk of you being bombarded by Spammers !

Post details of the stuff you have for sale in the "Items For Sale / Wanted" Section,
and anyone interested can send you a Private Message to enquire  :169:

Take care and stay safe - whatever you ride  :821:

   Will do Coconut as soon as I go through the trade-offers. I'm not going to offer up the items unless it enhances the trade in value. A lot of people think the top box and heated seats are standard items !!!!
    There is a clacking noise in the drive train where the drive shaft and the output shaft come together. Could be something wrong with the U-joint. I will post the result when I found out.
