Don't use the thumb kill to stop the motor.( can fry the ecu) The motor makes a really cool sound being a I-3. triumph requires a store stamp in the service book to maintain the warranty. putting on a aftermarket exhaust sheds 10 pounds. they already come with s.s. brake lines and have 90 degree valve stems on the wheels. anything else?
Cool man thanks for the info. Good to know about the store stamp for warranty. anything bad about the 675?

Would you please share where you got this information. I have checked the NHTSA for defects and recalls and am not finding anything. I definitely want to know more.

That's a misconception. It's illegal to try that . The sales people will insinuate that stuff but it's totally false. You can do your work yourself or you can have it done elsewhere and as long as it's done correctly your warranty remains in effect.

Are you talking about the red 675 that crashed? Wasn't it already determined that the piece broke off during the crash and not before? I remember reading somewhere that it wasn't the cause and it was more the riding style that caused the crash.

Got in a hurry and copied the wrong quote. This is referring to the store stamp being required for warranty. You can pay the extra dollars if you want but not using the dealer for basic maintenance does not nullify your warranty, on any brand of bike, or auto or whatever.

the stamp is not required at every service. only at the 500 mile...6000 mile and so on. I think the 675 is fairly comfortable. Got some bad vibrations at highway speed through the clip ons.

It's not "required" at any time. Only suggested or recommended by the factory. They cannot deny a warranty claim without justifiable reason that would constitute abuse, neglect, improper maintenance or repair procedures or parts.

Of course all factories want to support the dealers. They also want you to buy their parts rather than aftermarket. Fortunately, the Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act allows us to make our own choices.

The red one is just one of about 8 that I,ve heard of, Not a recall, but if I had one of these I think it would be a very small price to pay for piece of mind, he is just now able to ride 3 months later and the original estimate for parts only was $10,800, Yea I know U can buy another bike for less, but the point I,m trying to make is its just not worth the risk IF they were to break and cause body damage or worse and $$$$$$$ in parts, the fact is the factory part is cheesy aluminum and the replacement is identical except slightly thicker and stainless steel, It would allways be in the back of my mind, what if this were to happen? kinda takes the fun out of the ride, just my opinion fwif
