Thats taken from the UK site, I will check US and see what is says. I remember some talk about this, but think the "make sure you use original parts and take to a VAT garage" only apply to cars and not motorcycles here.

The machine must have been serviced by an authorised Triumph dealer, at the intervals specified in the Triumph Owners Handbook and the service log completed accordingly.

Thats true.  One of the guys i work with had a triumph scrambler and couldnt get something done on warranty because he does his own servicing.  Even though he is a qualified bike mechanic too.

I believe that the US allows for servicing your own scoot whether BMW / Trumpy / etc.
Some kinda cool law that allows for it.
You'd better have perfect service records if something happens though....jus' sayin'

Hannabone's correct -- US consumer protection laws prohibit manufacturers from denying warranty service because maintenance was performed by someone other than the manufacturer's own dealer network. As long as the recommended maintenance was done (even if the owner did it him/herself), the warranty remains in effect.

I was told by our service dept that if we didn't have Jodie's Street Triple serviced by them, it would void our warranty. I argued with him for a few minutes but figured it wasn't worth the time or effort. I do all my own servicing and don't plan to change whether the bike is covered or not. That's what living a couple hours away from any dealer will do to you. This is in Canada as well so I don't think we are covered by the same http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnuson%E2%80%93Moss_Warranty_Act law that the US has.

From what I've gathered, though, if you have a GS, with optional computer, a service light will come on which only the dealer have the means to reset.  Am I wrong?
