Your 12K service has inspired me to give it a shot. I have the service manual so the steps are well outlined although you have to dance all over the book to find the relevant information.
I'm going to order the DealerTool for the throttle sync. You mentioned you dont think the fuel adaptor hose was needed since there was enough length in the existing hose to make the connection to the removed tank so I'll give that a try. Did you need the extension cable T3880123? Any o-rings need replacing or did everything come apart cleanly?
I'm at 10500 miles so I have a few weeks before the 12K mark-any further info on your experience would be appreciated. Thanks
That sums it up well. I had the new centerstand and gear shift spring fitted today. I am very happy with the work my dealer did - they are Belle Plaine Motorsports. They got it done quickly and efficiently, and did a fine job.
The gear selection just seems more "positive". Not stiffer, just more "definite". Anyway - it went well, so I am very happy.
It's not a recall as such, it's a factory covered upgrade. Triumph are not issuing notices for this upgrade. The best way to check if it is applicable is to ask your dealer. They can run your VIN number and find out. However, if yours is a 2012, I think the chances are that this upgrade will not apply - meaning you already have the newer version spring. You can always check with your dealer - you do not HAVE to have the work done. It is not a safety recall, and not having it done won't affect the warranty or anything.
