    20000 mile service

    Good afternoon all.
    I have just returned from my mum's, been there on the bike  :153:
    When ever I go down I always go past a house that always has motorbikes in / on the driveway, and once I saw a van with Triumph Birmingham all over it, this dealer is now shut.
    Anyway, on my way past today I stopped and spoke to the chap, it transpires that he was a mechanic for this dealer and is now working for another dealer, this place sells all makes.
    Anyway, he is a fully trained Triumph mechanic, I told him my TTSE is not far off the magical figure, and that I'm going to be putting the best part of 5 thousand miles on the clock, he said I would be better off getting it serviced, clearances checked, but didn't thing they would be far out if any, anyway all in all, he said he would give a full service for 100, and check for any faults with the diagnostic unit.
    I'm very tempted to go to him, he wants the bike for a day, but thinking about it, the parts would cost that  :084: :084: :084:

    Hi Wilco, it all depends on what he means by a service, just done my annual oil change, 40-45 for oil & filter.... then some checks...brake pads etc, so that's 50 profit. Still to strip the brakes and clean them, will do them when the wheels off for the new tyre I've ordered,other than that I don't do much else. Just do as and when it's needed.

    Didn't take me a day.... more like an hour to change the oil, it will probably take a couple of hours to do the brakes.

    I should of added that I have changed the oil & filter, also replaced the shaft drive oil, just for peace of mind, also fitted a new rear disk and pads all round,he will replace the air filter when he removes the tank / panels to check the valve clearances, he will also replace the coolant as a pipe has to be removed  :187:.....so not much more to do to it............Also missed off my original post, the 5k miles I will be adding, will be an European trip to and around Bulgaria in August.

    If just his labour for a 20K service comes to 100, that would be a bargain,......somehow I doubt that would turn out to be true, the time it takes just to to get to the point to see/check the valves and the cost of the special cam chain tool. :084:

    He say's he has the equipment to carry out most work on the TTSE, but in fairness, his garage / home workshop did appear to be wall to wall of the correct gear, hydraulic lifting bed, etc.

    It's the cost of item number 24 that I object to, if he's got that, can you ask him if he'll hire it out or what he uses/does instead. :001:

    I gather that it's involved in setting the correct cam chain tension.
