Title: 10k Service
Post by: Chaz on September 23, 2018, 10:19:39 PM
Lads, bike is over the 10k. I have done engine oil, shaft oil and brake pads. Does anyone have the 10k service list so I can see if I can do the rest myself. Cheers

Cheers pug, the only thing I think I will struggle with is the valve clearance. Looks like will have to go to a garage. Shame muddy waters was still not taking bookings.

I do some servicing work if anyone is within reach of Bath. Happy to do part of the work if you want to do your own oil & filters.

Marks manual is a handy buy - did my own valve check last Xmas with its help and you tube. I've been servicing my own bikes for 30 odd years so think I'm reasonably competent - that said the valve job is n't really difficult - just time consuming with al lthe parts that need removing and the lack of room to work on. If your not confident get someone to do it - but its not that bad.  :002:

Yup-totally agree.  :001: When I did my 10000 mile service it still said do the valve check (now 20k as stated above) but there were still a few shims needed

I have Dave, muddy sump doing my 10k, but av done 12k lol on the 12th. I have done oil and oil filter change and brake pads 3k past. I like to keep fresh oil in my bikes. I service my Harley myself, but that’s a bit easy to service. If I had confidence with checking valves and doing shims I would do it but that’s a big nooo. Lol

Who ever does it make sure the suspension linkages are done!!!
Title: Re: 10k Service
Post by: eps on November 07, 2018, 09:19:59 PM
Yep - agree with the suspensions bushes - especially if you ride all year and jet wash the bike. A bit ACF50 or whatever its called won't do any harm.  :002:

I just got my 2017 back from Fox Powersports in Grand Rapids, MI.

10K service (parts included) was $568.

They replaced the rear brake pads- they were already worn out, which I thought was very odd because I am a very light user of the rear brake.  Maybe it's because the front and rear brake systems are linked?

Anyway, it would have been closer to $500 without the pad swap.

I'm curious on the valve shims- does anyone know if the 1200 motor uses the same shims as the 1050?  I have a couple of shim variety packs for that motor.  I never needed them.  My 1050 valves were always in spec.

My Gen1 TEX does not have linked brakes. Not sure about Gen2.

I used HotCams 9.48 mm shims in my TEX. They are widely used in Japanese single cylinder dirt bikes.

I just checked my garage,  and I have 2 assorted Hot Cams 9.48mm shims. 

Good to know I have them if I need them.

There is one caveat, however, if your bike is still under warranty. I recall reading here in a previous post somewhere that Triumph have stated that Muddy Sump is not certified to work on triples.

I recall reading that as well. However, before setting up on his own, David Jones worked at the Triumph dealer in Newcastle upon Tyne and is a factory trained technician. If the claim is true that Triumph don’t recognise him as a bona fide operator then it’s just because he’s undercutting their dealer network as a result of his low overheads. As I understand UK/EU law, a manufacturer cannot refuse warranty claims as long as work is carried out by a legitimate business with service documentation/invoices issued and genuine OE parts are used. I may be wrong about that and I wouldn’t want to be the person testing that assertion! Has anyone actually been refused warranty claims after using Muddy Sump for servicing?
