Took mine back in for squeaky belt right after my $825.00 12K service. Told all was fine "they all do that". I knew better as the squeak was pretty loud under acceleration. Anyway, took a 150 mile trip up the coast. Got home and there were black spots all over the back wheel on the belt side only...took it back and it has been there almost three weeks waiting for a new belt and pully....I have had issues with every problem discussed on this forum except sticking speedo. Have had the bike 19 months and it has been in the shop over 3 of those months...It is time for Triumph to admit this early build Bird was a total lemon from day one.
