Wanted - 800XC 2011 Engine
« on: January 10, 2018, 02:41:29 PM »
 Hi, somehow I have lost third gear and a fix by local dealer is too costly to contemplate so now require a replacement 800xc 2011 engine with history - anyone?

Have you given some thought to trying to fix it yourself. There isn't much to them its just a load of gears and shafts.

Hi, somehow I have lost third gear
At the risk of, at minimum, muddying the waters for your replacement engine request (if so, I apologize); and, at worst, offending -- how sure are you of "no 3rd gear"?
There are numerous posts on this forum describing a broken pin on the gear selector shaft as "no 3rd gear" - or similar.

Is there an estimate (written or verbal)? I ask b/c it really isn't so unusual to have a gearbox repaired. It doesn't happen often, thankfully -- but, it's been done countless times over the ages and gearboxes haven't really changed very much (at least not ones like in the T800).
What is "too costly"? (you will be getting new parts)

I don't know your regulations -- but, is it possible that there could be a legal/title/registration issue? i.e., bike not having the correct engine number?

Yes.., you don't have much to lose -- in either case, the engine must be removed.

As long as the gear seelctor pin hasn't dropped off into the gearbox and totally )(*&^(*^*(& the gearbox is shoudn't be 'that' expensive.
if it has taken out he gearbox you have been unlucky.

Hi and thanks for the replies.

I certainly have no third gear as I rode it to check and then removed the sump to find gear parts. I have removed the engine but to replace the gear it appears I have to split the casing at the same level as the main bearings! I am not too keen to do this. This is definitely not as easy as the last time I worked on a gearbox on my old Royal Enfield 250 Continental back in 1971! That gives my age away.
I think the 1200 explorer even looks easier than my 800xc to work on.

My main dealer started on it but bits kept breaking! cylinder head studs, the the 'fingers' at the silencer joint broke off from the down pipe. That alone was verbaly quoted at near 1000. I do not think they realy wanted my bike in their workshop for that long. So cut my losses and now have it at home.

I will comtemplate doing it myself but since retiring I have less time than ever so would like to find a reasonably priced 800xc with history.

Thanks anyway.

You could try TriumphAnt who are specialist Triumph breakers. In fact they have one (2012) engine listed on Ebay at the moment for just under 500. Mind you, there's another (2014) engine listed too for 400.

Once again for the replies.
Does anyone know if there issues with the cpu and using 'later' engines and/or 800 as opposed to XC as mine is a 2011 800xc.
