Big thanks to Flitwick Motorcycles, On Your Triumph suck.

  1. well as header really. Before I went to Ireland I'd noticed a small
    knock in the head bearings and obviously doing over a thousand miles
    on their lovely smooth roads made them a helluva lot worse so much so
    that the last time I rode it heavy braking induced a clunk clunk clunk
    clunk.

    Needless to say I didn't think this was good considering the bike had
    only done 3500 miles. Andy looked at them and not only was the top
    bolt only finger tight, the rubber washer could spin at a rate of
    knots and was obviously *very* un tight.

    He phoned the dealer who I bought it [1] from who basically said tough
    shit, its a maintenance item and his attitude wholly sucked.

    I phoned Triumph who said it sounded a little extreme and to take it
    into a dealer and if they needed replacing then it'd be done under
    warranty.

    I arranged to take the bike into Flitwick motorcycles who not only
    checked and tightened the bearings but bled my front brake as well.

    and then didn't charge me for it as a measure of good will. It makes a
    helluva difference being dealt with by pleasant, helpful people rather
    than a bunch of cunts.

    so *big thanks* to Flitwick motorcycles.

    You need a nice Suzuki.
    Not surprised really - is it under 6 months old? I'm sure you could have had
    a stab at the Sale of Good things
    and it being unfit for purpose.
    Still, happy ending

    No surprise, the workshop manager at the original site is the only good
    thing about them.
