Just had a 12000 mile  service done by muddy sump, it was a pleasure to watch him work with dedication and expert knowledge and I am very pleased with the results it was a lot more involved than i thought and worth every penny at least 200 quid cheaper than triumph. I highly recommend the service that he gave, not seen anyone work with such dedication in years thanks again muddy will use again  :046: :037:

interesting to see hardly anyone will do their own servicing nowadays,
is it down to complexity? (shouldn't be, I have had many bikes far harder, the 800 imo , is really good, and very very easy. to work on)

I do a fair amount of work on the bikes myself, but not valves. I've been working on them for 40 years, I think I deserve a bit of a break...

Lots of us here do all our own servicing and repairs

we seem to be in the minority though, nowadays

I'll tell you in February  :017: I've booked mine in for it's 12,000 miler

No way am I paying my local dealer prices  :156: :156: :156: :156: they're shocking and an utter rip off.
