     :400: to the forum.  As a 2013 with 7,000 miles on it I guess he only rode it to the end of his driveway and back into the garage! :745:  Your going to love it once you really see how it handles and rides.  Good catch!

    He bought it as a leftover in 14, rode it to yellow stone and back to south jersey, the he and I rode to west Virginia and back. The bike has been sitting for probably three years. I got it home and had to diagnose a no start issue, turned out to be garbage in the fuel pump. Filled it full of fresh gas and presto!! It runs.  I have since called Triumph NA to inquire about the head issue in the early bikes. I was told there is no TSB for my VIN.

    Welcome to the forum, Joe!  You'll find that long days in the saddle are pretty darn easy with a Trophy underneath you.  I have 73,000 miles between my 2013 and 2017 TTSEs, and always look forward to the next ride.  Enjoy & ride safe!

    StinkyArmpit,

    Welcome  :401: to the Trophy, I sold an Electra Glide when I bought mine, and never looked back.  :046:

    There is something called a head or valve train upgrade.  Triumph did not call it a TSB or recall.  If you heard noise from the head, they went in and changed it free of charge.  A search for TSB and recalls will not find this.  You have to ask was the head upgrade done.

    I know I had mine (a 2013) done at around 13,000 miles a number of years ago.  One thing that was good about it is that if done later, closer to 20,000 miles, it pushed back the big maintenance required at 20,000 miles, saving money at the time, though still requiring it later.

    Something to think about, my memory is not as good as it used to be  :084: and there may be others on the forum who can provide more details.

    Ride Safe,
    ZShyster
