Independant servicing recomendations in Southern England
« on: November 07, 2019, 05:17:13 PM »
My Tex is due its 20k service. Triumph dealers prices are extorionate. Can anyone recommend an independant (not Muddy Sump as his website says he isn't taking on any work at this time) within a couple of hours ride from Newbury, Berkshire.

Cheers
Nick

He’s been looking after my 2014 Explorer for about 3 years now.
Top chap, excellent service.

Brian at Dunmow Motorcycles https://dunmowmotorcycles.co.uk/serving/

Fully trained Triumph technician, used to be the lead tech at Ongar Motorcycles before they were sold to Lings when he and Jason decided to set up their own motorcycle business. Has been maintaining my Tex since new, and carries out the servicing requirements for many of the South Essex Triumph Owners Club. Highly recommended and keen prices.

Thanks, both sound good recommendations and I may well follow them up.

Can anyone suggest somewhere a little closer to home, say between West London and Bristol?

If you have indoor parking, I'd buy Marks manual for 25 quid and do it myself. (exactly what I'm doing now in fact) My local shop is quoting 4 hours labour for the 20k. Not including parts.  :005:
