Dc triumph dealer for valve adjustment

Im looking for a d.c. triumph dealer that can do valve adjustments. Any dealer will work, but I need the bike by thursday.

I can't even set an appointment with local triumph dealer(fredericktown yamaha) because they are too busy.

Anyone know if cad cycles can do this?

I don't know, most places have longer waiting times than that - you might be better off staying up one night to do it yourself. Valve adjustments are pretty straight foward:)

I belive cyclesport in Alexandria is a triumph dealer, no idea about how long they would take though. Might be worth a call if you don't want to do it yourself.

good luck

clinton cycles is the worst place to get your bike serviced. No thanks, been there done that. I waited 6 months for a part that was nevered ordered, and they didnt even want to refund me after that. Then there was the 1100$ bill they gave me when I took my bike in, the bike after hitting the shop was "unridable" THANKS CLINTON CYCLES... YOU SUCK

anyway, i want someone who knows what they are doing. Id do it myself, but i dont know what i am doing.

I was hoping to find a small local shop that could do this sort of work. These bike shops charge way too much. :(

Fredericktown did mine and replaced the fuel fiilter for less than $200. The fliter was $40 of it.

Myers cycle engineering,

Steve at Myers cycle engineering is about as good as they come.
The shop specializes in old Triumphs but will do other bikes as well.
Steve used to write a monthly article in WRMT.
