10000 service interval
« on: May 26, 2015, 05:07:22 pm »
Well bike was service today with no issues and new software update loaded to see if the audio off/low voltage resolves itself.

Can't complain about the cost either with the drive oil also done £280.25p all in.

Roll on Thursday for the ride up to Livepool and the crossing over to Douglas (Isle of Man) for the TT.

The more I see these prices, the more I know I was ripped off at DESTINATION TRIUMPH. Nearly 600 quid I recall...

GJ-Trophy,

By"drive oil" do you mean the Final / Shaft drive oil ?

If so, did you ask then to do this, as it is only specified to be changed
at the very first 500 mile service, and then never again !

Cheers  :821:

Coconut yes it's the final/shaft drive oil that I requested changing. I know it state this in the specification but for the small amount of oil and the time it takes to drain just felt it something I prefer to have done.

Brakes didn't need doing as these were done by me a few week ago and I make a point of checking, cleaning the break calipers during the winter.period anyway Also checked the front and rear rotors to make sure these are within tolerance when I service the brakes.

 £280.25 is $430.  Did that include the UK 20% VAT?

W8d4it yes this included UK VAT @ 20%. I should say I have a good relasionship with this dealership. I also do most of my own maintenance on bikes I've owned. As the bike has one year left I needed the dealers stamp to maintain it warranty. But make sure any bits I can do to keep the cost down I will.

Why pay £75 an hour, to the dealers when you can DIY.

Did they have the fairings and tank off and change air filter, sync / lube throttles? Seems like a very good price if they did but there is abig question whether this is really worth it if riding environment is uk countryside and filter is very clean.

From what was discussed and checks I did it deafintly look like they had. Filter didn't need replacing but the workshop manager did recommend it at the next service interval 20,000.

Yes agree it was a cheap service compaired to some of the post I've seen. But as some would agree/disagree I personally don't believe in replace something that doesn't need it. If that item doesn't impact on the bike safety and performance and will last until the next service.
