A clunck noise changing gear

Hi,

I have a 2010 rocket 111 roadster with 500 miles, and since I bought it, it has had a cluncking noise when changing from 1st to 2nd gear and from 2nd to 3rd. From 3rd to 4th and 4th to 5th smooth as silk and same on way down also some times the gear change is difficult besides the noise. Have brought it back to dealer and tells me that Triumph say that this is because everything on the roadster is big and when I get over 1500 miles the gears will mesh better and the noise will go. The bike is under warranty but I get the feeling that someone is "yanking" my chain or is this true!!!

Hi
This does sound like a gearbox problem, either where the cogs lock together (the dogs go into recesses) or the shift forks themselves
The dogs do wear after high mileage which can make them slip out of gear
Ive never heard of a gearbox smoothing out over such low mileage, but I suppose it is just possible
You could get the gearbox 'blueprinted' (i.e. to manufacturers exact specifications) but this will cost a bomb !
Your best bet is to complain again & at least get a ride on another rocket3, or get it sorted under warranty

Ride safe

Cluncking noise coming from the frontwheels


Have the suspension parts checked on your car, probably a leaking shock absorber or a faulty control arm.
