The sale of goods act is with the Dealer and not with Triumph,so your problem needs to be put back firmly to the Dealer & not wait for Triumph.

The Dealer has to sort it out, the fault with the goods lies firmly with the manufacturer, the bike is legally not 'Fit For Purpose' at this time, but I have put in a formal request that the bike is returned to Triumph UK for a new engine. That is my proposed solution to the issue. I do not want my engine stripped apart again, the already did this, it did not fix it.

They changed the selector mechanism, clutch, selector drum and selector forks.

There are, in my opinion, no more components left to change, I have suggested the issue may be a manufacturing / machining fault, but this is only my opinion.

I have the Finance Company helping me now. Their complaints department have offered to step in and assist if neccesary.

I am waiting for a response from the dealer to a rather lengthy email I sent them just now.

Apparently, I am entitled to financial compensation from the finance company on a rolling daily basis for the length of time I am without the machine.....I think they calculate it out and remove it from the balance. While it's away, they pay. Cool.

I will keep you all updated as to my progress.

The Dealer found the throttles were out of balance, and rebalanced them for me, and she runs much sweeter now.

As for the gearbox, Triumph have claimed that I need to use it more and it should settle down.

I really can't answer that one..........

I will have to put some miles on it and see how it gets on.

I'm still not happy though. It doesn't seem 'Right' to me.

It's a bit better than it was, I will have to 'suck it and see'.

I'm gonna shut up now.

Thanks for your help guys.

I took it out yesterday and rode it like I stole it.....I didn't muck about!!!

It's a bit better, I think they may be right, it probably needs use.

We shall see!

Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year to you too Dave.

When you come to changing the oil try using Castrol Power One Racing 10w-40 Fully-synthetic. I think you might find it makes a difference.

Thats whats in there now. They put that in at the first service, and I have a top up bottle here (that I got a very good deal on at Tescos....think someone mis-priced it, it was 3.50 for a litre! hehe).

Originally it had a 'Running In Oil' in it, whatever that may be, apparently designed to help clear all the little metal particles from the manufacturing process.

After they changed to the fully synthetic, I did notice a slight change in the symptoms, but they didn't go away.

It's a bit better now though. It doesn't do it so much. It has now done about 850 miles.

I've slowly started to increase the demand on the engine, giving it a bit more welly, but remaining within the confines of the recommended precedure in the Owners Handbook. () I am sure of one fact now though......she will do 'The Ton'!!!......

850 miles isnt much. Triumph are probably correct. need to take it for a good long ride to get it nice and hot rather than piddling little trips without the engine having a chance to fully warm up and run itself in. then again bit hard if the weather has been against you, been talking to someone who lives not far from you and they reckon its been very cold

Shift problem

Hi Hop

I'm having a similar issue with my 2012 T100. What ended up being the cause and cure?
