Service cost
« on: August 08, 2019, 06:26:35 PM »
After my shock 6k 400 service and the impending 600 12k service cost, I've found out that after the initial outlay owning a 1260s Multistrada could actually be cheaper!! The Ducati 9k service cost 200--and 18k service 800/900!! At 18k the Tiger would have cost me in the region of 1400! Triumph...your dealers are ripping us off!!

Yup, Triumph main dealers are expensive

My KTM 1290 is around 230 for a 9K service and 500 for the 18K
Tigers are around twice that cost over 18K

throws my old theory out that the bigger the bike the more cost to service.

Dont know where your getting your Multistrads serviced. Mine cost 270 for the 9000 mile service. I didnt keep it long enough for the 18000 mile one.

Try Clive Woods for a descent service at a sensible price.

Why would anyone go to a main dealer for a service anyway? I typically spend 100 for a general service or 300 for the big one with the valves check.

Because they use high quality tools, are constantly trained and usually keep servicing only the models triumph has unveiled therefore they know how every single screw looks like. If you has trusted service thats not branded and you use them being happy - good for you but most people dont want to risk and they want to be sure their bike is decently serviced.

It really seems to cost a lot but just out of curiosity I called authorised triumph dealer in Warsaw (capital of Poland) and for the big service (with valve regulation and everything) they charge 2000PLN (around 400) and ias they said t takes 4.5hrs.

One of the reasons I've joined this forum is the chain rubbing strip, I read somewhere that some dealers change this at 6000mls & some at 12000. I've just fitted a new one at 12500miles. having done all but 3500 of those miles myself I know that it has been well lubricated, I found the original one had very little wear so would think 6000miles is a bit early. The new one is a slightly different design to the old one with a rubber insert on both the top & bottom section as opposed to just the top, anyone know why?

Triumph responded to my email re the service cost and have maintained that they are not in control of the labour rates that the dealers charge. They say they have a set price for the service kits but labour is out of their control. Time to start searching further afield for the next service.
