Leaking Gas Tanks etc
« on: April 26, 2013, 11:26:04 PM »
Well, I picked up my Boy today from Ray Price, I actually got to meet Mr Price and his wife today...They very cordially thanked me for my patience and wished me well with the new tank. Quite sweet of them really :002: So, the other three SE's in the stable are having their tanks all replaced as I write this and I am very pleased overall with my warrantee experiences both with the Boys and Girls of Hinkley and with Ray Price et al...mostly, really glad to have that scooter back under my roof again! :169:  Enjoy it folks,  -Dr Ron

Crap.  This tank thing is more disconcerting than the fork seals and based on how many you have at your place it may be just as widespread.  I would think all the tanks were made the same way and we might all start leaking unless they changed manufacturing methods at some point.

I just dropped my baby off today at Southeastern Choppers in Jacksonville. Heavy leak at the rear seam of the gas tank. They gave me a Tiger 1200 as a loaner, but I have no idea how long it'll take to get a replacement. The service manager said that there are spare tanks in the US. However, I may be Trophy-less for up to two weeks! I certainly hope that Triumph corrects this problem on new production bikes. Other than this leak and some Bluetooth problems, the bike's been flawless.

Has anyone in the UK had a problem with a leaking tank?

Not yet never I hope.  There again it seems to be only at high temperatures so we are probably safe :017:

I wonder whether it is a specific batch of tanks or whether a general recall will be issued?
