Maintenance and Warranty
« on: February 23, 2015, 01:26:41 pm »
Does anyone know if doing your own maintenance will void your warranty?  When I purchased my bike the salesman said I could do my own maintenance and still maintain the warranty.  I think he might have told me anything to close the deal.

I can't speak for Florida, but no problem here in Ohio. I do my own valve adjustments, tire changes, etc. I buy my air filters and other bits from my dealer so they are Triumph items. I have never had any problems with warranty work by doing my own maintenance. Now, if something is not working properly such as the windshield or radio then it would go to the dealer. Doing maintenance and attempting a repair while under warranty are two different things.

I'm not totally sure that any mfr. can require you to have service done by them or their representative/dealer or use OEM parts only, but w8d4it could probably answer that question more correctly since he's an attorney.

Googled and found this relating to Florida :
Zem Bower Auto Center
and although it relates to cars, it would seem that the answer is, "No" !

In the UK the answer is NO, providing the Service schedule is followed,
any such work is carried out by a competent person,
and parts used are either genuine "Triumph" parts,
or are of an equivalent specification and quality.

To be certain though I would fire off an email to Triumph
asking them specifically, so you then have their reply in writing  :028:

Cheers  :028:

If it went to court Triumph would have to prove your poor maintenance or use of none Triumph parts coursed the failure. The only problem is software updates
