What to do (how to do) whilst the tank is off
« on: September 15, 2019, 07:35:51 PM »
So the insurance is up on the TTSE (2014) at end of the month, so baby is going imto hibernation,  oil and filter change, tyres over inflated, wire wool in the muffler, she has 27k on the clock, and the air filter has not been done for 11k, will also change the fuel filter, question to the group, whilst she is stripped, tank off etc. What else should be looked at. She is running great, no noises of any kind, . What's people's take on coolant, needs changing?

When I had my Trophy tore down for the 30,000 mile service, installed crash bars. You need all the plastic off to get them on.

Hi shrory,

The Coolant is scheduled for replacement every 3 years - regrdless of mileage,
so it all depends on the age of your Trophy and when it was last done, if at all.

Be wary of the drain outlets on the Radiator - I recall someone finding they were corroded
and broke off when they tried to undo them !

Additionally ( not related to having the Fuel Tank off but worth doing ) -
check and lubricate the Rear Suspension lower Drag and Drop Link bearings
and Sleeves for corrosion, and the Gear change pedal and Brake pedal pivot bolts.

Cheers  :821:

Smiles are infectious,and they are FREE,
so if you see someone without one, give them one of yours :-)
