I bought a new bike ('13 Street Triple) and it came with a two year warranty. I have done all my own servicing with assistance from my fiance who was a mechanic (both cars and bikes) in the past. I was told that I have to take it to a licenced mechanic to maintain my warranty though they did tell me it didn't have to be their (i.e Triumph) dealership. I don't really want to do this as it costs heaps more plus I don't trust them as much. (well I have taken my bike in once to a mechanic to get rear tyre change and they fcuked it up which I realise is not a large sample size but even so, it makes me less trusting). My fiance is a licenced car mechanic, but I presume he'd have to be a licenced bike mechanic? Or does the mechanic need to be tied to a shop to count? Also how likely is it I will need warranty repairs? I thought anything dodgy would be covered by recalls or the fact that manufacturers need to make sure their parts, etc are fit for purpose, regardless of whether there is a warranty. Trying to decide if I should just void my warranty and do the work myself or whether it is worthwhile to take it into a mechanic. Anyone been in this situation? I have to do at least two services a year. edit: I should point out I get a 404 error when I try to check the T&C of warranties as listed on the Triumph Australia webpage.
