 :086: I got quoted NZ$320 today for my first 800km service booked for next Tuesday. I feel is a fair bit of money already since it is oil + filter + labour  :187:
I will be doing a oil + filter change every 6000k myself 'till annual / 16k service interval.

Crikey... That's a lot for oil and filter change.. Does it void the warranty in NZ if you do it?

Unfortunately it does void the Warranty if not serviced by "an Authorised Triumph dealer"  :003:

Servicing at any franchised dealer is always expensive especially when you consider labour charges of around £80 - £100 an hour plus vat (UK20%) .


At least the intervals are 10,000 miles apart rather than 6,000 for most other manufacturers. Handy when you're doing around 8-10,0000 miles a year

To put it into perspective the 12 month annual service on my XRt was NZ$368 and the 12 month annual service on my Jeep was NZ$356. Go figure!  :027:

Just picked up my bike from its first service - NZ$317  :012:

I complained about the clutch 'judder' when I dropped it off. Got advised today that they have got new clutch plates on order  :033: and approved by Triumph NZ as a warranty claim.
Brand new bike  :013:  I sort of expected it since I have read about similar cases on this forum  :034:

Trust that the replacement should sort it and I can start putting some good K's on it  :063:

Hi I did my 16000ks service as per the manual Gen1 Tiger.
Valve clearance and camshaft timing. supplied service pack ex Jack Lilly UK. Cheaper than NZ Triumph for everything, exchanged rate worked out a lot cheaper with some upgrades included.
Engine sounded a bit rough.
I wasn't keen on waiting for the revised service interval of 32000ks. Glad I did it sooner. Cost $1108.45

I have just been quoted £260 for my 1st 10k service  :172:  :005:

I asked them to explain what they did for my hard earned money and was told they would email the service sheet through to me, I was told the air filter was included and the tank would have to come off though.  :230:

I expect I'm not going to be pleased with how little they will do. :024:

Wow that’s cheap! I’ve just paid £200 for an annual service at my main dealer which really was no more than an oil and filter change and updating the ECU, Chassis and clock electrics to the latest firmware on my Gen-2. Oil alone was £60.
For my 10K service, due in about 2,500 miles, I’ve been quoted in the region of £400 (as tank has to come off) which, if some of the shims need replacing could be even more expensive.

I’ve always understood about £400 for the 10k service and about £750 for the 20k service to be in the “right region” for main dealers. Maybe I’m wrong - what have others paid?

Just had a annual service done £200 on a gen 2 , basically the same as Hawkeye.
