    What did you do to your bike today?

    Changed oil and getting ready to do clutch fluid in preparation for Monday's track day.

    Dude, you really put in the miles on that thing. How many since you bought it?

    Jeff Payton from OMRL is the buddy who's on the 2 smoke. If you and Andy make it, we'd have an OMRL garage at the big bike track!

    I'll be there with a buddy. He's on a bad ass 2 stroke and I'll be riding Izzy. We'll likely have a garage if anyone wants to stop over and say hey or share it.

    Motor rebuild after floated valve, what to look for?

    Street, of course, the only place I've had it. I've had my Ducati and CBR1000 on the track.

    agreed. I'm going with the idea that they quit making this motor in 2017, and because it's technically a '14 bike, they might be saving any motors they are hoarding for newer bikes. Who knows?

    When the dust settles, I'll be leaving the most glowing review of this dealer that's ever been written.

    So I talked with the warranty service person and the tech who are working on my bike. They requested a crate motor and Triumph responded saying they don't have one available. They now have to completely tear down the bottom end and potentially/likely the transmission to see where every issue is and individually request those parts. Nobody at the dealership is happy about that but it sounds like they are going to basically request a whole motor minus the case. I'm good with that. At the end of the day, I'm thrilled the issue will be taken care of, disappointed in how long it's taking, but overall I'm feeling good. At least that's what I keep telling myself! haha

    New valves, pistons, rings, hone cyclinder(s)? Loads of shrapnel for sure, thing grenaded. Part of the issue with this is, if they do have to grind the motor, who is going to do that? Dealer doesn't have those tools and I don't know a shop around that would touch a warranty engine job. And I'm a tool and die machinist! I'd rather wait until next year if that meant I got a totally fresh motor. Season is about over and I have the Ducati still. Can't float a valve on that!
