Question about 2008 Triumph Sprint ST
With your bike being so new I wouldn't think an oil pump problem. I have an 07 ZX14 and when warming up it has a "ticky" oil starved sound too. As well built as Triumph's are probably just an odd warm up circut the oil goes thru. Depending on what type of oil you use I suggest adding an oil stabilizer like Lucas or Amsoil.Just be sure to buy the correct additive. They make it for conventional oil and synthetic.This should be done at the time of an oil change not just added to what you have already. Wouldn't want to overfill the case. Do you have a service manual? If not, they can be a huge help. They can cost upwards of $100.00 but may help with small issue's like this.And starting a good relationship with your local dealer is always a main objective. Most will help with over the counter problems if you drop by now and then being that "local" guy. It is a misconseption they all just want your money. Most are just bike people helping bike people. Though not always so feel it out.
