    Considering a 2014

    Hey guys,

    So I'm once again hunting for a TTSE and found one I'm considering.  Coconut already provided his excellent evaluation recommendation blog:

    https://www.triumph-trophy.com/index.php/topic,8776.0.html

    I'm considering a Blue 2014.  The VIN ends in 625290 so I assume it has the head fix by the factory?(please correct me if I'm wrong).  The bike has 5,500 miles and is in good shape with the exception of both pannier covers need to be replaced.

    Original asking price was $8,750 and got it down to $7,750 due to the bags.

    Is the 2014 a safe buy or am I better off with a '15-'17?

    Craig

    Considering luggage covers are only $70 each and easy to replace you got a screaming discount if they're knocking off $1000. :046:

    Mine is a late 2013, and the recall work was done, It now has 22000 on the clock, and is a beautiful ride, by the way, that's the best colour to get  :153: ..regards the panniers, they are cheap enough to replace the covers on, or resprayed., I did mine due to some scuffs, but need doing again now thanks to the wife lol.

    That's exactly like mine.   Just got back from a 7500 mile trip around the USA two-up, never any worries.   

    18,000 miles on it, had a "TES" system sensor replaced under warranty at 9,000.   600, 10,000, and 20,000 mile service done by the Triumph shop (the 20,000 a little early obviously), but I paid for them at a highly discounted rate up front when I bought the bike so the pain wasn't so bad.

    I'd buy it again!

    I've got a '13 with 75k and apart from the wires to the ignition switch breaking, no bother. Just having the rear shock rebuilt at the moment, but I reckon that's acceptable. Personally I would leave the pannier lids on and spend your negotiated discount on petrol. I would also buy a new one following my 6 seasons experience of the model, ohh, hang on.....

    Had a bad head on 625805 at 20k. Took some time arguing with Triumph USA to get it taken care of. They gave me the parts, because a complete head is not available, and I had to pay labor to get it assembled and installed.
