Service Manual 2010 TB

Can anyone tell me where to buy a 2010 service manual for the 1600 cc TB? Also, is there a complete parts list available.

The manual is available either from triumph for i beliebe $120, or via ebay from sellers that somehow make ans sell copies for 1/3 the price, about $40. I have a copy and it's fine. Go to bikebandit.com for the parts list. Click "OEM parts", then triumph, then 2010 then thunderbird and you can see the entire parts catalog.

thanks

Thanks, I liked $45 for the manual a lot better than from the dealer. Will do routine maintenance and small repairs myself. The price for a simple oil change and checking fluids does not seem to make sense to me, but what do I know? My two sons both have Harleys, one a fatboy and the other, according to the first son, a girlie bike, the 883. He rides the Sportster every day to work, 77 mph on the interstate. Already burned up one piston, fixed under warranty. I decided to fake them both out and buy what I really wanted. You may assume I really like this bike.

I bought the Triumph manual, and consider it worth every penny. It has already saved me from having to take the bike in for checkups every 6k miles in order for them to tell me that my throttle bodies are still balanced.

Cost to have the dealer do this: About $50 every 6k miles

Cost of manual: $120 (one time)
Cost of computer cable: $20 (one time)

They also charge insane amounts for changing out the oil and filter, so I have been doing that myself as well.

Sure, there are folks out there that have the attitude of "let the dealer handle it", but I am not one of them.

Hrm... that is a checklist for the old Thunderbird, not the 1600. I would love to see how you would do a carburetor synchronization on the 1600, seeing as it is fuel injected.

Also, there are some missing items on that list, such as checking the ECU for flags, and doing a throttle body balance.

Sorry, also saw the chain on the list. Does anyone have the list for the 2010 Thunderbird.

The list is in the owners manual, and I think that a link to the PDF for that has been posted around here somewhere before.

I am ordering the manual from the link posted by Marde. I'll let you know when I get it in. Totally down with doing my own simple maintenance.
