    SERVICE HEART ATTACK

    Well it was my intention to post, or read some posts about which are the best tyres for the TTSE but my focus has someone now changed.

    I bought the bike 11 months ago and have lifted the mileage from 5500 to just under 13000 and so a service is due. I have booked it in online but have just been contacted by the dealer who wanted to let me know that they 12000 mile service is a biggy - and by biggy he means 800 big!!!! Is this right, is this normal do I really need to spend that money??

    I have asked what it covers and apparently it covers everything from oil, to fluids, to filters and plugs also valve clearances etc plus visual checks on everything and wheel bearing greasing. Clearly I know what is needed as routine but do I really need everything that is allegedly covered by and 800 service. At the very least does anyone know if (and I know it will be a guess) if the valve clearances are likely to need doing at this stage; the cheaper service that doesn't include them is a mere 240.

    Stunned and thinking about my former life of 37 years riding Honda's, never anything like this!!!

    Hi Pottsie,

    The Service Schedule is shown in your Owners Handbook.

    If you don't have one you can download a ".pdf" copy from the Triumph Web Site.

    The Trophy should be serviced at 500 miles,
    then every 10,000 miles or annually.

    The "Major" service is at 20,000 miles.

    Note that there are some errors in Triumph's published Service schedule,
    ( along with the Owners Handbook, Audio Handbook and Service Manual ) :
    Owners, Audio, and Service Handbooks + Service Manual errata
    but these have been corrected in the version I produced for the Forum here :
    Servicing Data, Reference Info. & DTC ( Fault ) Codes - see the First Post,
    and the documents that can be downloaded at the end of that message.

    The Valve clearances are not scheduled to be checked
    and adjusted until the 20,000 mile service !


    Have a look at the Schedule to see if there's anything else
    that your Dealer is apparently incorrectly recommending  :017:

    If the dealer is telling you they are going to grease the whel bearings he is talking out of his ****, well you get the idea. Perhaps he means the headstock bearings which are part of the 20k service which also specifies the valve clearances. If he mentions they will also attend to the Jiggle Pin and Foo Foo valve, be wary.
    I to had a Honda prior to the Trophy and they are rather good aren't they.

    Probably charging you for replacing the `MKII  body locking self retaining plunging plug'...... :164:
         ( find another Service  Dealer  tout suite ... :821:  )

    all i can say is wow.

    My bike has 24,000 km never had a major service done on it. they replaced the head at 14,000 km. so i have about 10,000 km on the new valves etc. I will be going on a 25,000 km trip starting May 4th. Asked the dealer about major service before i go. they said no. They said wait till i get back home. They will change oil and hydraulic fluids (as it is time), new tires and a once over. Maybe 1 or 2 oil change while away. I told them i didn't want any major work to be done while away.

    By the way the trip is thru the EU and i will take bike with me.
