    1050 S3 Brake Fix!

    I've noticed that this info keeps getting lost on Trat(bumped back so many pages, surely nothing to do with my posts ), so I decided to post it here, where it will be much easier to find.

    SPEED TRIPLE 1050 FRONT BRAKE

    Re: Speed Triple 1050 front brake - increased lever travel. Machines built
    prior to Vin: 253302.

    A small number of Speed Triple customers of bikes built prior to Vin 253302
    are reporting dissatisfaction with the Speed Triple 1050 radial front brake
    and for reasons of customer goodwill, we would like to confirm our wish to
    satisfy these owners.

    The reported issue is that of control lever travel variation which has been
    a concern of some customers, to the extent that we have modified later Speed
    Triple models to accommodate our customers' requirements.

    For clarity we wish to confirm that the enhancement fitted on the latest
    models is available to customers who purchased 1050 Speed Triples prior to
    VIN 253302 as a goodwill gesture. This involves the installation of coated
    caliper pistons to the front brake calipers only. Please carry out this work
    for any customers' who express any concerns.

    How to claim modification costs from us:

    For convenience, please use the Warranty On Line system to process this
    goodwill work using:

    claim type "GOODWILL",

    fault code 02020291 and

    repair code 12020205.

    This new repair code covers the time to modify 2 caliper assemblies and the
    admin credit element. Please conduct a Full Download from tomorrow onwards
    to capture these new codes.

    Along with a Tuneboy downloads section we should have a "Warranty" section so this info can be easily found. Good post cheapster.

    The thing is that is it really the permanent fix everybody has been waiting for. Triumphrat forum is loaded with messages: "I got the brakes fixed today/yesterday and they feel great". The brakes feel great for a moment no matter what you do them but is this fix really the final one?

    I'm not sure Harris, I haven't even got the work done on mine yet. But it is the only 'warranty claim' that I know of that Triumph has actually released themselves, so I just thought I would post the free warranty fix for people to try. I'm planning on taking a trip to my dealer sometime in March and get this taken care of. We'll see.

    The FACTORY section would be a good place for items like this.
    Most of what I know comes from breaking something FIRST.

    Just a suggestion.
    That way we could organize good info like this.
    But this is a good place too.

    Re: 1050 S3 Brake Fix!

    Ah a subject very close to my heart.

    My baby is 2 yo in 17 days. I reported Spongey brakes to my dealer within a month of owning her.

    I think it was the 1st SPONGEY BRAKE thread on rat.net, so yes its all my fault. Whinging Pomme



    They've tried several 6+ times to fix it as others have confirmed as a good will gesture. I have even spoke to the people at the factory a couple of times. Finally and I hope it is finally my pistons were changed for some "coated" ones a month ago when we had a break in the crap weather. Even though the bike has not been used I can tell it IS better as the standing bike would gain lever travel even as it stands in my garage. Since the mod there has been no change in lever travel. I'm a happy bunny now....Fingers crossed

    You think my dealer would replace my pistons if I brought him the calipers? The whole front brake system is still in one piece. I should ride down there on Speedy, and whip the stock brakes out of my backpack.
