I got this funny feeling,10000 klicks and the Bonnie wanted to head home for a service and a check up,anyone else feeling that way?J.B.
Thanks for the info,was your first service around 170 bucks ?My T100 had her 10,000k service in October last year - cost AU$233.70 including $53.00 for oil and $30.45 for a genuine Triumph oil filter.
I thought the cost was quite reasonable except for the filter of course, Triumph does itself a disservice by reaming its customers like that, it doesn't promote brand loyalty at all.
Ah! Now there's a story. No my first service (800k) was $368.45Thanks for the info,was your first service around 170 bucks ?
I'm not sure of the exact legal standing of that in Australia although I'm sure that would be the attitude of the dealers.Are you required to have the work done by the dealer to maintain the warranty in Australia?
same here, and the 20,000 and the 30,000 and the..... never went back after the 800 Klick service.My trusty Triumph dealer charged me $350 for my first (800K) service; no special adjustments or work was done - just the standard changing of the break-in oil and bolt tightenings.
... but needless to say I wont be going there for the 10K service.
we got stooged all right.I see your from Melbourne as well - we probably got 'stooged' by the same dealer.
I'm taking it to the dealer during the warranty period so that if anything goes wrong during that time the dealer wont be able to blame another repairer and try to dishonour the warranty coverage.
Geez $350 hurts, though when I hear most people paying under $200. It would've been a 30 minute apprentice's job, and max $50 in oil and filter.
Yeh I can dig that,being my first new bike I'm more interested in the warranty and covering my er, ass Not that I've had any probs with the dealer-one interesting thing is..and don't quote me,as we were talking about the next service and I handed him my service manual to get STAMPED,he said seeya in 5000 ks? I said er it says right here its 20000ks-er really let me have a look,yeh well we'ed prefer you bring the bike in at 15000 ks but if you got receipts etc etc,anyhoo I'm covered,Ride on BrudderJ.B.we got stooged all right.
this is my logic as far as warranty goes.
have the dealer do the first 800 Km service and accept that one is getting shafted. that way you are covered until 10,000 klicks.
my experience with having been involved in things mechanical all my working life is if anything is going to go wrong on a new piece of machinery that warrants a claim it is likely to be within the first few thousand klicks. at 10,000 I feel confident that all the bugs have been ironed out and anything serious if it was going to happen would have happened by then, so at 10,000 and onwards will take the risk and service it myself
