Pay particular

attention to the other two gudgeon pins. They may have come from the same heat treat batch! Maybe from the same material stock bar.

Triumph pin failure

My son was keen on a Triumph Bonneville fuzzrr , but after seeing how Triumph have treated you , I think I`ll be advising him to go for something more agricultural like a Harley .

I did ask the Citizens Advice about the block servicing tactic, as I thought it was illegal for them to create that 'monopoly'.

My arguement is, when I bought it, the bike was coming out of warranty. So why would I have had it serviced by Triumph, to uphold a warranty I didnt have anyway.

This issue should have been dealt with them under a good will gesture, not mattering who serviced the bike. The pin just should not have snapped, end of.  I even asked them to supply parts at cost price, they wouldnt have lost out in anyway. Again they declined to help.

My other arguement is that no Triumph service would have prevented this. The bike uses so much oil between services, I have had to check it weekly to keep it topped up. So what is telling me that this bike was not run low on oil between its 500 mile, and 3000 mile service, when I didnt own it. Whats telling me the damage wasnt caused to the pin due to oil starvation at that point. My estimates are, that in that period, and the owner being a relative newbie, he could have gone through 2litres of oil in that service period.

But..... I could rattle on and on about this till im blue in the face.  You can all read through the thread and take out of it as you wish. I am yet to have someone on here say that I am being un-reasonable in all of this.

Anyway.... The letter has been sent, and I have ACIC the resident solicitor waiting to respond to their answer.

sorry..

new member so only juist read this, many moons ago I had a demonstartor sprint RS from clay cross. Went around a bend touched the peg down and it snapped. All i asked for was one at cost, thier reply all our parts are stress tested the bike must have had a previos accident. Thats it no apolgy, nothing just two lines. Sold it a week later with oberons on, never been to triumph since - feeling for you mate hope you get some joy and cost them some money....

Triumph

can't believe how badly they've threated you,I was gonna buy a new thunderbird while the sun is shining, not now. I remember old bonnies with banana shaped rods out the crankcases but pistons were still attached, I don't think I've ever seen a broken gudgeon pin.

Split the crank casings today, and took the other two pistons out and inspected everything.

Then  went about ordering the parts. Now I knew the supplier would have to put some things on back order, but they should arrive next week........................

Except the 2 gudgeon pins I need. No date from Triumph when they will be in, and no stock available........  How very VERY odd eh????
