    20,000m service being done today - few questions (but urgent sorry)

    Hi folks,

    20k service being done tomorrow by Triumph and they've found a few things today already (bike on 26 with service indicator showing due in 1000)

    Rear linkages shot - front and back. Sounds like an important fix and a known issue?

    Front fork leaking oil - as above

    The downpipe is totally corroded at the junction (I realised this when fitting an end can). It's leaking  bit but doesn't affect performance that I'm aware of and sounds fine. The downpipe is...550. That's Five Hundred and Fifty of Her Majesty's pinds. I'm thinking leave it for now. Advice please?

    Thanks gents,

    Richard

    PS Loaner is a Tiger Sport. Awfui vibration and not comfy but what an engine :-)

    Had a answer on the quote

    Rear linkage is 273 including parts. Told 'em to go ahead ('surprised is hasn't seized up already' says technician)

    Front fork seal is 506. Including parts at 254 for 2 seals and brake pads. Told them to leave it and I'll research an independent fix. Not impressed with 506 to fix a fork seal.

    What's the view on my decision please?

    At "World of Triumph" ( where prices are typically around 5% more than directly from a Dealer ),
    the Front Fork Seal & Bearing Kit is GBP 68.43 and two will be required ( one for each fork ).

    Front Brake Pads from the same place are 112.98 for both Discs.

    Total = 181.41 so not sure how they get it to 254.00 ? ( Expensive Fork Oil ? ).

    That still leaves 250 Labour, which at today's rates is probably quite reasonable -
    There's a fair amount of work involved in stripping the forks down,
    not to mention requiring the inevitable specialist tools !

    When they are replacing the Bearings in the rear suspension Drag Link & Drop Links,
    ask them to make sure they install all of the securing bolts from the right hand side - as per this Topic :

    Wish Bone ( Drag Link )

    That way you will be able to more easily maintain them and keep them lubricated yourself !

    Cheers  :821:

    I meant for genuine Triumph parts ( "typically" ) - They can be useful for ordering on-line,
    and having parts sent by Post, but I'd never buy tyres that way ( from them )  :156:

    Excellent - thank you for the excellent advice :-)

    I've told them to do the rear linkage and leave the fork seals as I have a friend in Wales who can sort them. I also asked if the fix would be worthwhile because the forks could be pitted already with the oil leaking so it might be a temporary fix for over 600. Reply was, 'Oh well I haven't seen the forks myself?'

    And 509 for a downpipe plus labour - no chance. It's leaking a little at the zorst so I'll wrap it up before the MoT and job's a good'un.

    And now this...

     
    Please see attached photos. This is a shim bucket which is very badly worn and your inlet cam which is showing signs of pitting. I have spoken to Triumph with regards to a goodwill claim, which I am sorry to say they have refused. Please advise how you would like us to proceed. The bucket is about 19.65 inc vat and a cam is 290 also inc vat.
     
    Is this normal on a 25k bike?!

    On the thread of the down pipes, had the same issue, luckily I found a stainless steel welder who did the job at a much lower price. F*** paying that price!!! i do find it frustrating that it corrodes that easily! It must be the lowest grade stainless steel. It should never corrode in my honest opinion but thats another foible of the trophy!!!
