    just booked my bike in for its 12 month service at Phil Youles, £210ish, which i suspect is mostly labour.
    I think this will be last time i use a main dealer for a service it seems alot of cash for a load of checks and adjusts!!

    I think the only reason why im using them is that im probably not 100% sure what Robinsons did to it when i got it last october, bearing in mind they went bust shortly after. Bikes only done 4k in 2 years so fingers crossed there wont be any surprises.

    Think ill be trying Dave Helm in preston next year ive heard some good reports about him

    £210 ? that too much £££ , i paid about £150 & i think that is a rip off , trouble is if you want the stamp in the book ..... :?

    pretty sure it will be my last one tbh. ill be moving to an indie.

    im considering taking mine own oil that could save me a few quid

    i know car stealers charge around £65 for oil and you could get it from Halfords for half that
    but im not sure about the bike its my first paid for service

    Mine was £175 and I complained. I wanted the Honda Centre here in Shrewsbury to do it cos I know them well but they said they didn't have the diagnostic equipment. So it went to a franchised dealer. Next time I will find out in good time who's got the kit.

    As mine is outside the warranty period, its unlikely I will be using the Triumph dealer anymore as he’s over an hour ride away.

    At 4000 miles it's just that, Andy -a bunch of checks, and an oil change...all stuff that you can & should do yourself - your money is much better off in YOUR pocket IMO, not a dealer's. :)
  7. I agree with Dareen. I can do it all myself except for a tune so better to take it to GT at £12.50 for the tune and do the rest myself.

    I keep all the receipts for the good oil and Triumph filter etc and sign the book myself.

    Hi guys, I purchased my bike through a ex triumph dealer who bought the bike from bill smith! I am due the first service and was getting it done by the ex dealer! And they are also sorting some warrenty bits and bats! Can any one see any issues?
