Ignition coil replaced as No. 2 was cracked/split.
Brake fluid change.
Coolant change.

Broken down it was about
90 coil.
265 tyres and tubes.
540 service and fluids.

Dave did my last one at 24k. Now approaching 36k and was hoping to book him again.
I can do the basics but wouldnt attempt the shims. 2 needed changing at 24k.
Might wait to see if dealers do the winter price deal, or contact Clive but its a bit of a drag from Lowestoft!

Clive is in Swineshead (6 miles E. of Boston). Just 200yds from the A17 so easy to find

                                                                       WOW
                                                                    895 - 00p

                      Was it in the shop with the big windows where they can see you coming all the way down the street.
       
                      At those prices is it really worth having a modern day triumph

                       Cheers  D.O.C.

I've just been quoted 850 from blade Swindon including an MOT for 12K.  :027: They work on 80 quid per hour.  I tried to barter etc but did not get very far.  I'm now thinking of seeing what they'd give me as trade in against a new bike.  Love the bike and finally got a seat which I can ride all day, but 850 quid...  (excuse rant, I'm from yorkshire...)

Now you know why you shouldn't move South  :016:

Is MS still doing them at home? it'd probably be cheaper to ride up and have a night out
Tinkering is what happens when you try something you dont quite know how to do, guided by whim, imagination, and curiosity.
