    When splitting engine cases for access to gearbox if there is a gasket between the jointing surfaces or is it only a sealant that is used?

    Gearbox issue

    On the ride last weekend I encountered my first ever mechanical issue whilst on a ride. The gear lever feels different and it's harder than usual to select gears and it now jumps out of gears when there is no load on the motor. Does anyone have any ideas what it is and how to fix it? 2008 R3C...

    Jumping second to Neutral at max rpm

    Hi guys R3r 2012 owned since 2017, with TORS and a remap. I've trolled all over for various clues, but most concerns are false neutrals or dropping out of random gears. My issue is when I crank her open at 6.5k rpm in second it jumps into Neutral. No other gear, no false neutrals, and it only...

    Gearbox lubrication

    Whats the story for the roadster. I can't find anything on fluid replacement for the gearbox. Is the gearbox lubricated with the engine oil? I can't find anything in the manual either. Probably a bumb question. Thanks

    Annoyed with Triumph right now.

    So long story short, I bought my 2015 R3T about 4 months ago and am having transmission issues. It has ~5700 miles on it and I got it new, old stock. From day one it has always been a bit finicky about finding 1st gear from Neutral (almost exclusively on a cold start). About 1 out of every 10...

    Gearbox

    Hmmm, me too. Tho' I have pulled mine down once already to replace the 4th gear set. Now I need to do the 2nd gear set, this does have the later 2nd gear. This box is not a nice one, when I had it down last I did look closely at the whole unit, all "looked" O.K. but as I'm not experienced with...

    Gearbox Trouble with 2013 Rocket III Touring

    I bought a slightly used 2013 Rocket III with just about 1200 miles on it. Almost right away I started noticing that when I downshift from 2,3,4,5 gear I can not catch a neutral. So say when I need to stop at intersection, I have to downshift all the way to the first and then back to neutral...
