Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical / Re: Oil filter removal
« Last post by Grubloon on Mar 19, 2023, 07.33 pm »
Coconut, I screwed the filter on till hand tight, then torqued it to 10nm, that struck me as being quite tight, I made sure the O ring/seal was well lubed before fitting.

I will see what happens on the next oil change next year, I will definitely undo it while the engine is warm and before I dump the engine oil.

As I have a Big Blue bike lift I had to drop the bike down to floor level to drop the oil as there's no where to place an oil drain tank, then lift the bike back up to remove the filter, as back problems preclude lying on the garage floor for too long, maybe the engine had cooled too much and filter became tight again, so filter will be off first next time, I will fit some type of frame to hold the drain tank with the bike in the air for next time.

Thanks one and all for the help and ideas.  :821:

I'm halfway through carrying out the 20,000 mile service so firstly a massive thankyou to janfmiller for the guide that gave me the confidence to carry this out.

I had to re-shim five of the exhaust valves as they had tightened up and they are now set to the middle of the specified clearance. I've checked the camshaft timing - spot on and reassembled the top of the engine, fitted new fuel and air filters and reconnected the airbox and fuel tank.

I fired the bike up and she runs a treat, however, once the cooling fans had kicked in I revved the engine up to about 4000 - 5000 rpm. The engine returned to idle but sounded like it wanted to cut out so I then blipped it up to about 7000 rpm. This time the bike stalled. I restarted the engine - it fired up straight away but as the starter was turning the engine over I could hear a noise that sounded like a dry rubbing noise apparently coming from the left hand side of the engine. When the bike is revved up you can also hear the sound.

Today I started the bike from cold - no problems, however once warm the same thing happened again.

Has anybody else come across this please and if so did you manage to solve the problem.

Another bit of information -

If you do need to replace one or more of the Relays, they are no longer available from Triumph !  :110:

Suitable replacements can be found online from eBay etc. by searching for Part Number T2506035.

The original Make and Model Number of the Changeover Relay is OMRON G8HN 1C4T RH

A readily available alternative from RS Components ( or Mouser / DigiKey etc )
is the Panasonic CM1-12V.  Available from RS Components as Part Number 699-5967 for £6.15.

It's worth mentioning that the 5 pin Relay type can also be used as a substitute
for the other type of 4 pin Relay, such as the one used for the Top Box ( Triumph Part No. T2506040 )
which World of Triumph have kindly omitted completely from the Trophy Electrical Parts list ! :027:
( You can't use a 4 pin relay as a substitute for a 5 pin one though ! )

I have updated the Forum Spare Parts List with this information.

Cheers  :821:

Phew ! - That's a relief !

Thanks for sharing - a reminder to us all to smear some oil on the face of the new rubber gasket,
to help stop it sticking, and not to over tighten when fitting.

Recommended torque is 10Nm - or "snug" by hand then no more than a further 1/4 turn.

Cheers  :821:

Finally removed the filter, using a filter wrench.

But I had to use another adjustable wrench to get enough grip on the filter wrench, as my hand was not strong enough to get a good grip on the filter.

All good now, new filter fitted oil added and no leaks.  :152:

They certainly are. Tbh its way over my head but tomorrow i will check if the system is working. If not ill check the fault code, clear it and try a reset limits on Dealertool. If no change ill swap each of the screen relays in turn with the other 3rd relay (that has the same part no) of the rear brake (I think) to see what happens.
