Greetings From Mid-Mi

Hi everyone.

New Triumph owner here, picked up my 2014 Scrambler this fall. As someone new to riding, Triumphs, and mechanics in general, learning to work on the bike and take care of the maintenance myself has been very rewarding so far.

Come spring the bike will be due for its 500 mile service. Can anyone tell me what is done during that service and what I can expect to pay? Is it something I could potentially do myself?

Thanks and cheers,
Unk

It should be listed in your owners manual. If all is well with the bike, probably all the dealer will actually do is charge you for doing nothing. You may need to do it to keep your warranty intact. If a oil change is required, they may do that. Don't expect much else.

Welcome to the forum!

I believe you should let the dealer perform the services until your warranty has expired. Also, I assume they perform a basic torque check which is valuable for a machine just assembled (I am an aircraft mechanic and a stickler for these sorts of things). Otherwise, ride the piss out of it and enjoy your new Triumph!

Cheers!
