    1st 500 Mile Service - How Long Should it Take

    I am a bit dubious that my dealer actually did my 500 mile service. From point of drop off to being informed that bike was ready took less than an hour. Is this really possible?. Also, should they take it out for a run to check things as well (brakes, clutch etc?)

    Thanks

    Hi magicbus,

    If you check your Owners Handbook you will find a Service Schedule.
    If you don't have an Owners Handbook you can download one from
    the Triumph Owner Handbook Library  although it contains some errors !

    For a corrected Version which you can refer to and download see here :
    Servicing Data, Reference Info. & DTC ( Fault ) Codes.
    ( Scroll down to the bottom of the first message ).

    Note : The errors referred to above within the Owners Handbook Service Schedule are :
    "Headstock Bearings - Check and Adjust" requirement is missing, and,
    "Renew Fuel Filter", is NOT required at the First Service.
    See this Topic for more information :
    Owners, Audio, and Service Handbooks + Service Manual errata


    The 500 miles service includes the following items :

    • Engine - Check for Leaks
    • Engine Oil - Renew
    • Engine Oil Filter - Renew
    • Autoscan ( Check for Faults & Updates using Triumph Diagnostic Equipment )
    • ABD and Immobiliser ECM's - Check for stored DTC's ( Diagnostic Trouble Codes )
    • Cooling System - Check for Leaks
    • Coolant Level - Check & Adjust
    • Fuel System - Check for Leaks, Chafing etc
    • Lights, Instruments & Electrical Systems - Check
    • Steering - Check for Free Operation
    • Headstock bearings - Check & Adjust
    • Forks - Check for Leaks / Smooth Operation
    • Brake Fluid Levels - Check
    • Brake Pads - Check Wear Levels
    • Brake Master Cylinders - Check for Fluid Leaks
    • Brake Callipers – Check for Fluid Leaks & Seized Pistons
    • Fasteners – Inspect Visually for Security
    • Wheels – Inspect for Damage
    • Wheel Bearings – Check for Wear & Smooth Operation
    • Tyre Wear / Tyre Damage - Check
    • Tyre Pressures - Check & Adjust
    • Clutch - Check Operation
    • Clutch Master Cylinder – Check for Leaks
    • Clutch Fluid Levels - Check
    • Final Drive – Check for Oil Leaks
    • Final Drive Oil – Renew
    • Stands – Check Operation
    • Exhaust Clamp Bolts – Check & Adjust
    • Pannier Link Bar – Check for Correct Operation & Adjustment

    That's a LOT of things to check in just 1 Hour, although if none of the items
    that might need to be adjusted, need to be adjusted, it's probably "do-able",
    as most of them are just "checks", with only the Engine Oil & Filter,
    plus Final drive oil, to be renewed.

    To fully check for Coolant Leaks however, the Fairing would need to be removed,
    ( which would consume a big chunk of that Hour ), to access and examine
    the hose clamps, which some owners have found to be loose, and I would be surprised
    if every Dealer were to do that on the 500 mile service !

    The Schedule does not sepcifically call for a Road Test at any of the Services !

    Cheers  :821:

    Here is a link to the check list I used on my first service.
    Most of it is checking.
    How fast he can do it, I think depends on him and his experience.

    Da Monk,

    The list on that Check Sheet is very similar, and does include a "Road Test", however it states
    "6,000 mile (10,000 km) service intervals (All models except Trophy, Trophy SE .......)" ?


    Cheers  :821:

    No Idea Coconut,
    I'm sorry I didn't pay more attention.
    I just followed the list and then went for a ride.

    I work on any bike I take it for a ride.
    Most shops do as well, but not all.

    My 500 mile service took about three hours I waited at the store.

    Thanks everyone for the info. On closer inspection (well as much as I can tell - signs of oil residue around the filter) it does look like they have changed the oil/filter which was my main concern and it appears a relatively quick job.  I have a cam that comes on as soon as the engine starts and it shows the bike being wheeled into the garage but not out. I am going to have to take them at face value this time.
