    Good result. My clutch lever has become sluggish returning to rest, causing clutch slip on accelerating. I have to nudge it forwards with the backs of my fingers. I will be stripping it out tomorrow and checking for rust/grease/grime.

    Don't neglect to lube the cable, that's probably your problem.

    Great solution, and this is another case of when the customer contacts Triumph and can show that the use of the machine has been normal and maintainance schedules have been adheered to they usually step up to the mark.

    I had an issue with my car last year that should have been covered by a manufacture approved warranty. I was told by the dealer the claim was rejected but after I contacted the warranty company myself to find out why I found out that the dealer had not included some of the parts they replaced and charged me for in their warranty claim which were the parts that would have been covered.
    That was why it was rejected and the warranty company refunded me themselves.

    Sounds like bad routing on some. Some early ST955i's had same problem. Operator error at factory.

    Modern cable inners are Teflon lined, so should only be lubed with a PTFE type lube re Slinky Glide who recommended GT85 when I enquired.
    Current bikes Tiger800 XRx, Tiger Sport 1050, Ariel FH 650, Yam Serow 225.

    I shall be shooting some GT85 down the cables as part of the process. Thanks.

    Though there was another thing that could have had an influence in this case. Just as K1W1 pointed out the difference in consumer rights regarding different countries there is also the different country aspect of this issue as the OP would have been dealing with Triumph USA, not Triumph UK and I've no idea of the arrangement .... is it directly Triumph UK controlled or run like a franchise. :027:

    Anyway thankfully a good result in the end. I can say I've barely seen much reports of clutch issues on the 800 during my 6.5yrs here so it appears pretty robust and quick shifter system aside I imagine the 900 clutch is likely the same basic design so it was a bit out of the normal to see a clutch failure at so little mileage so a faulty component makes more sense. :028:

    Pivot bolt was a wee bit dry and the nut was vey tight, causing a pinch on the mounting. All greased up and GT85 shot down the cable, nut applied gently. Road test into Wales tomorrow.  :046:

    I usually strip, clean and regrease both lever pivots about once a year. Last year I had a strange noise from the brake lever when apllied and although not used, as such, eventually traced it to the folding pivot joint of the lever, so the pivot joints on the levers now get a single drop of oil as well. :028:
