So I'm confused. The Twisted Throttle link you provided - is that for the entire screen AND the bit on top ? If so, can anybody explain why the screen AND spoiler bit on top is 150 bucks and the spoiler, on it's own, is 140 for the clamp on model That just doesn't make sense to me....

I'd like to try one of the spoilers (I want to retain the stock screen as, well, I just like the look of it) but I 'aint paying 150 notes for a bit of plastic - is there anywhere else cheaper to get it or any alternatives

As for Touratch, holy crap 165 bucks for a bracket

Bluhduh Also have a staller.

New member with a new 2012 XC 908 miles! It stalled on me yesterday while decelerating in 4th 3 times. I did ride through a fairly deep puddle but the stalling happened a while after this.

This bike was a lot of work to buy, dealers didn't take me seriously, so much that I drove to the other coast of Florida to get one. I can't say I was real pleased that after 500 miles they wanted to charge me $350 for its first service. Is that a normal fee? It also took them 5 weeks to get the rebate "form" to me. Not the rebate but the FORM for the rebate.

Rode the bike today, no issues. I like this bike but am losing patience.

Not in my experience. I was charged one hour labor ($80), plus oil & filter, and the misc. shop fees. Total was around $140 if I recall correctly.

You didn't tell them your first name is Warren, did you? :)

I hear ya! I am about this |-----| close to just getting the Triumph touring screen for $150 -- at least it still has some of the edgy look to it.

It's not supposed to need ECU changes. Did not weigh them but it must be (as you said) less than half the weight of the stock muffler. The stock muffler was suprisingly heavy.

Fit and finish is excellent. Had a Scorpion before on a 1250 Bandit but didn't have it for 3 years so can't speak to long-term reliability.

Can you post a link to the site where you purchased your exhaust? Sounds enticing.

Nope, Jimmy! Ha. They quoted me 2 1/2 hours and $350. No exaggerations.

WHere did you buy it?

I did my 1st service myself...the "oil change" & chain adjustment for $350 is a rip off. What rebate are talking about?
I use MC Enthusiast in Springhill FL & this year alone my buddies & I have purchased 4 new bikes between us & all had positive experiences.

I have purchased three new bikes in the last year. One shop charged 80 bucks for everything, which I thought was fair. Where I just purchased the XC they want $225. Ridiculous. I bought the oil and filter and can adjust the chain also. I am wondering why they didn't take you seriously at certain dealers?

Although I only have 500 miles on the xc, it seems alot better than the wee strom for wind protection.

Would someone with more knowlege than me help this guy with his stalling issue.

Right royally screwed there for that service. It's only an oil/filter change and a general check over. I would be inclined to complain to Triumph US re the dealer.

Re the stalling. Has the new tune been uploaded to your bike. If not and bearing in mind your"dealer" I would be inclined to do it myself and use TuneECU

Until he can confirm he has the latest tune, no point in really offering any advice.
