    Would be about cost and gut feeling when I spoke with them for me......could go wrong but if it's all you've got, go with it :):)

    Make phone call to all and prepare a few questions
    Go with the one that gives the answers you want and feels right.

    Sometimes if you’re comfortable it’s because they’re capable.

    If they do a shit job don’t take any notice of my advice in future;)

    I’’ve always been to Pidcock’s for my Triumph bikes and recommend highly for both buying, servicing and general helpfulness... even before they saw the colour of my money! Have had a few new bikes from them so they prob see the £££££ notes attempting to escape my wallet when I go and visit but that’s fine as they are a business and it’s always nice to feel genuinely warmly welcomed.. never had a prob and looking forward their open night next week which is always packed ! ... hope helpful

    [QUOTE="Dozers Dad, post: Muddy Sump is mobile.
    Triumph have authorised him to stamp the owners service book. Therefore the warranty is unaffected.[/QUOTE]
    The only people that triumph will autherise to stamp books are triumph main dealers. However anyone can stamp a service book if they want to.

    Cleverly worded to imply that. Triumph endorse no one but main dealers end of. No matter how good they are. Infact they do not recognise his work as not VAT registered. He cannot do warrenty work

    Not according to Muddy Sumps website mate. If he was telling porkies I'm sure Triumph would taken him to court by now. He's been in business for many years.[/QUOTE]

    Infact. He is not VAT registered so even more reason. That said if he uses triumph parts a dealer may be sympathetic should a customer go back to a dealer within the warrenty period. Like any other 3rd party

    Yes. Thats the same for any bike shop. Nothing special for him. It is not an endorsement
    You are correct, be does a good job and very popular. But on his website also states there are now a lot of new models he cant work on.

    I come on here and make comments ONLY when iv'e experienced things personally so to help people and save them money,unless i am 100% sure i don't bother commenting,i recommended muddysump to my local triumph club and half of them have used him even though the triumph shop is 50yds away from where we meet,if less people used dealers maybe they would have to put their prices down,i once took my 900 legend in a van to clive wood but cannot recommend him because he wasn't that cheap.

    I always say. Cost is not the key. The target is a good job at a fair price. No matter who does it or to what.

    In all the makes of bikes iv'e had over the years,cost is paramount when it comes to triumphs,not only are they up to 4 times more expensive to service than any other bike iv'e ever had,but all the triumph dealers i have been to share one common thing,--- incompetence.On my yamaha when i go to dealers they have a glass wall so you can watch them as they are confident in their own ability,i wouldn't trust most triumph dealers to change my oil and get charged 4 times the price for it,iv'e seen 2 dealers pushing bikes out with oil dripping from the filter and 1 of them was mine.

    Just be as picky about who does your knees! Had both mine done 9 yrs ago - new lease of life and banishment of pain.

    Well expect to come round and feel as though you have just been flattened by a train.....
    My single piece of advice is to work at mobility and flexing every bit as hard as they tell you, then some.

    My daughter had her tonsils done and the bloke next door was 2 days post op with a knee replacement and feeling very sorry for himself. She said I was coming in and warned me. I stalked round the corner groaning stiff legged then dropped a crutch - he looked despairing til I started skipping..... a game changing op. Flex, flex, flex! Measure what you need for the bike!

    thanks for the advice/info,i have measured what i need and the triumph is more of a leg bend than the yam but i can bend 15degrees more than i need so got to get back to that,they won't do both at once because i am such a fat ba--ard.

    When we owned our company we used to service/work on bikes & cars whilst still in warranty. We advised clients that by E U law as long as the garage is competent, follows manufacturers schedules & uses either genuine or o e quality parts & is vat registered the warranty in the event of a claim will not be affected. Well that’s not quite the case in the real world. Manufacturers will always look for a way to wriggle out of their obligations. Had quite a few interesting battles with manufacturers over warranty issues over the past 30 years of which I would guesstimate a 75% success rate.
