    Loose Drive Shaft rubber boot clamp

    Today I decided to check and lubricate the gear shift pedal pivot bolt for the first time, a notorious weak point.
    But I was much surprised to find a very loose and dislocated hose clamp at the front cover for the final drive universal joint.
    The clamp was probably overlooked during the cylinderhead replacement work.
    Luckely no apparent damage was visible.

    It really hacks me off when the dealer makes a balls up like this. My bike has been dealer serviced for 3 yrs and 45k miles. Just putting her back on the road after a British winter lay off and I spy a clip laying on top of the engine, possibly from a previous service. A little dismantling (fairing and tank off) reveal it was from an engine to airbox breather pipe but I dont know how long it has lain there un noticed. If Triumph want to have a market share of the prestige market, they need to have good dealers. Mine wasn't, and now isn't thank goodness. Sadly my experience with an incompetent dealer makes me wonder if I should buy this brand again

    Let Triumph know if you have a bad dealer experience and the dealer doesn't resolve it. The dealerships are their face with the public so they will be all over it.

    I quite agree - Triumph owners, having purchased a prestige marque,
    pay a prestige price to the Dealer for follow up servicing and maintenance,
    so that should be of a prestige standard, and if it isn't,
    then it needs addressing and putting right  :169:

    I guess 1675 you are talking about Triumph North East so no need to complain because they are no more.

    I live in South Shields and have had fantastic experiences with A1Moto in York.  The 160 mile round trip across the North Yorkshire Moors is a bonus!

    A good dealer is what's required after your initial purchase and I've found one in A1 Moto; I think I'll 'keep my powder dry' regarding the new Triumph Dealer opening in Scotswood Road Newcastle and continue enjoying my ride to York and back for the foreseeable future.

    Love, light and kindness,

    Dave

    Been twice to the new dealer in Newcastle who took over from the previous cowboy outfit. They are quite willing to service my bike but have no  experience with the marque having just took over the franchise. Why should I pay good money to them to learn about my bike? I love my Trophy, but unless mr Bloor and his band of merry men get their act together soon, I reckon they will be following in the footsteps of a certain american brand which involves a lot of noise and little action.  I suspect the trophy wont be made after 2017 and we will be offered bikes to ride 20 miles to the local meet to have a coffee and discuss accessories. Shame.

    This Topic has been renamed from "loose hose clamp",
    to "Loose Drive Shaft rubber boot clamp"

    Hopefully this will avoid any confusion with other Topics discussing loose radiator hose clamps,
    and will aid those using the Forum Search facility to find this particular subject.
