    Rocket III as a first bike?

    My caveat is I did ride a dirt bike as a kid. But after 30 years not riding I borrowed a buddies Vespa to take the road test for my license and promptly bought a Rocket. Now into my second Rocket and more than 80,000 miles combinded, without having never taken a class I will say it is...

    I need help, I really am starting to hate my new Rocket GT

    I guess all asses are not the same. The stock seat for me is the most comfortable one I have sat on. Way more comfortable than my 15 Touring. In fact just last weekend we did 1100 miles in 24 hours. I for sure had aches and pains but my tookus did ok. Just under 40,000 miles on the GT now...

    Oil leak on the 2020 GT

    Tightened mine a bit past spec about 10,000 miles ago. No issue since. But even if you dont do that fix the minuscule leak you are left with is in my opinion no reason at all not to do your trip.

    Oil leak on the 2020 GT

    Ok this might not be according to Hoyle but another contributor on this forum suggested that tightening the bolt in question fixes the problem. Well, at least on mine it did, snugged it about another quarter to one third of a turn and 4000 or so miles later it is still a non issue (dont tell...

    10k mile oil changes???

    Triumph pays folks way smarter than me to study the effects of longer oil change intervals so I have always gone with the 10000 mile reccomendation. Conversely, when I took the 15 in at 20000 miles for the valve check he said that unless it was making noise or hard to start it would be a waste...

    Oil leak on the 2020 GT

    I talked to my dealer again and he said that the problem is that the transmission cover needs to be resealed and that it was a two step process and that is why it will take some time for the repair. That is all the information he could give me. I am going to call Triumph Monday myself and see...

    Oil leak on the 2020 GT

    I will try to get that loaner. Yea the heat is intense in the summer but that just means we get up early and head up to the mountains and the cool pines. I can be at 9000+ feet in 1-1/2 hours and over 10000 in about 3 hours.

    Oil leak on the 2020 GT

    So they want to keep the bike for a week or a week and a half in order to cover up the fact that a bolt needs to be tightened? Gotcha. And the reasoning behind this is........?

    Oil leak on the 2020 GT

    They did say something about removing a part and getting it machined.

    Oil leak on the 2020 GT

    First the good news, my dealership tells me that Triumph has figured out a fix for this issue. The bad news is that they will have to keep the motorcycle for a week and a half or two weeks. Since there is no off season here for riding that really sucks. I was at work when they called me and...

    Oil leak on the 2020 GT

    Thanks for the tip. I reported your tip to my dealer and he said he would let Triumph that is exactly where mine is leaking as well.

    Oil leak on the 2020 GT

    I fell in lust with the 2020, lol. And if this is the only issue I will be good as long as they figure it out.

    Oil leak on the 2020 GT

    Love, love, love the 2020 GT, but I do have a slight oil leak that appears a couple of inches above the gear shifter. The dealer has attempted to fix it twice to no avail. This is a very small leak that does not have enough volume to even make a spot on my garage floor, but it is aggravating...
