Ok, I was told it confidential, so don't WikiLiki me

Range 524056 to 568329

Mine is in there

It is a Service Bulletin and if they dial your number in, it won't pop up...

Issue 474 (if I remember correctly)

Many thanks for that.
I am slap bang in the middle with a Launch model.
Will make discreet enquiries with my Dealer.

It doesn't matter if it's a recall or service issue.

People were concerned with the noise of their engines and Triumph have taken action.

Got call from the dealer. They contacted Triumph USA and they asked to file a claim that they will authorize. Dealer is ordering the bucket kit already and will call me to schedule repair upon parts arrival. Good job Triumph

I may be a beneficiary of this Service Bulletin, though that specific language hasn't been used.
My dealer chased around an elusive rattle in the valve train for a couple of weeks in December when I had it in for the 10,000-mile service and finally got approval from Triumph to replace shims and buckets. He said they'd done the valve adjustment 8-10 times in the course of the noise search.

They got the parts last week and my bike a couple of days ago. Haven't heard anything yet about how it's going with the new parts.

My dealer phoned me today to inform me about this service bulletin. I'm the second bike they will do as they want to have a go first on their demo before touching a customers bike.

When it goes in they will also change the top radiator pipes at cost as they have turned green so must have been something I've used to clean the bike but no idea what and they will also do the annual service at a reduced price.  :001:

T12  Im not too far from you which dealer is doing your work, Bill Smiths or Woods? i was going to book mine in early for an annual service,(bike was reg in May last year)

Mine turned a green color long before I washed it.

Woods, to be fair to them they told me a long time ago a fix was in the pipe line.

That must be pretty much all of them that have been built until now?

Mine starts 555 and i did not get it until the end of September ?
