    possible catastrophic break down of the gearbox - RESOLVED

    Seen on the New Triumph Trophy Facebook page:

    "An Urgent Message
     A friend at Triumph has just told me that Triumph are urgently trying to contact a limit number of Trophy owners to stop them riding their bikes. This is due to a possible catastrophic break down of the gearbox. I do not know the chassis numbers of the bikes in question but best call your deal to be safe."

    Anyone seen anything about this or is it just BS

    EDIT 13/06/16 - Title only Edited to add "RESOLVED"

    I have to say I'm a bit sceptical about this .....

    Most "New" Trophy Owners will have registered their contact details with Triumph at the time of purchase,
    or subsequently, so apart from those who have purchased "Pre-Owned" machines privately,
    and may not have registered their details, Triumph shouldn't have much of a problem contacting them,
    if they decided that they needed to.

    For something so apparently "urgent", I'm surprised that the first anyone on this Forum
    has heard about this is from a post on a Facebook Page, where there are only 170 Members,
    ( many of whom are Members here ) compared to the 2250+ Members we have.
     
    I would have thought one of "us" would have already been contacted by Triumph
    if this rumour were true, and it was that urgent.

    I have however sent a message to Triumph asking for confirmation or denial,
    and have offered to circulate any relevant information if it would be beneficial to do so.

    I agree they had no problems contacting me about the head recall.   On the other hand it might be a very small specialist group who are affected.  I cannot see it really as with a gearbox why would it be something like geographic for example . Perhaps we wait a couple of days to see how desperate triumph are to get in touch.

    There again I haven't looked in post box yet today?

    Thanks Coconut - I'm glad you're "on the case" already..

    We both know the original fB Postee is a reliable sort of chap and not one given to causing panic or spreading alarm.

    I shall be having a quiet word in the "shell-like" of my Service Manager for any further info in a couple of hours to see what's afoot

    For what it's worth, you can check your VIN Number on the Triumph Web Site here :
    Triumph Safety Recall Search
    which should show up any outstanding Safety Recallls.

    I highlighted "outstanding" because my Trophy had the early Side Stand and ECM Recalls,
    but when entering the VIN Number of the Trophy, there are no Recalls listed,
    so it doesn't show any that have already been done, just those that are still needed.

    Checked my bike, no recalls. Good thing since we are leaving for Southern Europe in a couple of weeks :002:
