So for you guys who followed this story of my new Rocket 3 R, the upshot of the story is that after less than 2 months
of ownership, clutch blowing up, Triumph won't replace the system under warranty. I just got the call.
So I am up for over $2000 in a new system plus labour with the risk that it happens again or I opt to install an after market heavy duty racing clutch. (New bike, less than 2 months old!)
So much for this bike being a Diavel competitor or some sort of real power bike. Not that at 54 years of age I am a hoon. I wonder if the bikes in this video survived it:
You've lost me Triumph.
I had just convinced a few friends also this was their next bike. I'll be telling them to stay clear. I should have stuck with Ducati and the Diavel. At least they cared and never had issues like this with my 2012 Diavel Carbon.
