Pah, awful things. You’ll hate it…


Welcome to the Triumph Massive. Your new 'bike is gorgeous and a fantastic choice as an upgrade from your last one.

Enjoy (oh, you most certainly will).

Shaunicous I still have my 636 laying around until I get round to selling

Hi Jamesg177. Congratulations on your toy. They handle well, and I find it to be a great road bike. However, I’ve had a lot of warranty issues on my 2013 Daytona 675. Fortunately it’s all been taken care of on warranty through the dealership, Palmers aka Herts Triumph. Some minor, but some major and dangerous. If you want details, let me know.

Ace man that doesn’t sound good,do you still have it?
If you could let me know what they was themat would be great I can keep an eye out if I’m getting anything similar

Hey Jamesg177, as you asked, here’s the details. Slan and Janey, take note:

As requested, here are all the warranty issues I’ve had on my 2013 model Daytona 675 :angry:

3/10/14 Bolt fallen out from lower right side of engine (holds lower fairing in place).

I’ve never had problems like this with any of the Japanese bikes I’ve owned. The build quality of the Daytona is seems poor, and the assembly appears not to have been thorough. The dealership are good at getting the warranty issues dealt with, but as the warranty expires in January 2015, I’m very concerned about how receptive they will be after that period if things continue. The dealership claims that Triumph are very good at honouring such things, but only the future will tell.

thanks i’ve already had a few of these problems myself…

left mirror on order because wobbling around

tyre pressure sensors replaced coz not working replacements not working more ordered

seat cowl fits poorly and come off somewhere - replaced

the exhaust cables were replaced before purchase and was already fitted with gel comfort seat so hopefully avoid seat issue

how did you get that list is that something you have kept yourself?

My God! What’s with all the bolts falling out? :smiley: Engine bolts, oil sump bolts. Crazy…

its these British built bikes built n Thailand lol :smiley:
