Spanish Andy :

I'd change it again in about 4K miles and keep on changing it every 4K miles until it looks fairly clean.  Then every 10K or 20K miles after that.

It takes very little time to do a change and doesn't cost much ( small volume ).

I use any full synthetic 75W-90.

Thanks . Yes I was thinking along the same lines. I suspect (hope) it will be much cleaner in the next changes. I think it has never been changed even at the first service. I completed a minor* service (oil/air/plugs/carb balance/drag link) and included coolant and brake fluids as well. I didn't bother with valves or steering head grease, leaving until next service at 64K KM's but IF the final drive oil was never changed, possibly other items were missed, I don't know but in any case I might get round to those sooner.

By the way I used liqui moly 75w/90 100% synth . It comes in 500ml. good for two changes.

*Nothing is minor on this bike :-)

Hello from North Carolina.
I am also a new member with a blue 2014 TTSE with 7k on it.  I've had mine less than a month, but agree it is an amazing machine.

I have the Triumph Service Tool T3880620 ( V Series Socket Adjuster 48mm ), if you want to borrow it,
or I can take any measurements from it that you would need to make one ?

Cheers  :821:

I have read and re-read the instructions in the workshop manual and going to do it myself.
I will have to make a couple of tools up to assist and have seen drawings of what is required in the manual, so once it is all apart, will be able to get some dimensions.
Whilst I am in there, I may as well grease the steering head bearings, which will require yet another tool, which I will make.
Fingers crossed!
Thanks for everyone's input.

"what happens when they go bust"? Which they did

One of the more responsible decisions in my biking life was to say "I'll have a think about it and call you next week" when asked at the factory if I wanted to put a deposit down on a Norton, I never did call them back  :164:
