That makes three ! (oil leak)
« on: June 17, 2013, 03:45:27 PM »
Third time in as many weeks my poor baby has been back to the dealers for a warranty claim !  :233: First minor, broken mirror on delivery. Second, water getting in to the rear lights where the unit wasn't assembled correctly (This only seems to affect UK riders) The third and most worrying is an oil leak from the sump !!  My dealer said to me " mines not the first Trophy with this problem that they have seen"  (WTF)  seems that the plate where the sump joins doesn't sit flush together hence the leak  :138: So just a warning for all you out there in Trophy land next time your on your knees near the bike have a quick look at the sump !!

Last one sounds serious. Can  you post a picture?  Where is the sump located?

Bottom of the engine, middle of the bike next to the exhaust box. Sorry about the picture quality (taken with iPhone) If you look you can see the oil running down (opposite end to the sump plug)

Hope that helps!  :187: :187:

That part is obvious.  Still a bit of real estate.

Another Friday afternoon assembled bike?

Seriously guys, all brands have issues. Ride the heck out of your TSE, get things fixed as needed, and stop worrying that the TSE is a problematic bike.  :188:

Mine has the pending tank recall but that wont stop me from a 600 mile ride in a few days.

   :440: Don't get me wrong these things do and will happen .......

It was just a warning that there could be a possibility of an oil leak on some of the Trophy's :084: I only found mine whilst looking for something else as you have to get right under the bike to see it
