Thanks for the update

Enjoy your new bike. Hope it's totally trouble free. I'm trying to be optimistic, but also realistic. Hopefully Triumph delivers the part in a reasonable amount of time. It sounds like yours spent a long time in the shop waiting for parts.

It's good that mine is finally getting worked on, but I'm also nervous I could be losing it for a good part of the summer.

As I posted earlier it's happened to me. The manufacturer gladly replaced my bike after only 2.5 years of depositions, conferences, and $8000 in legal fees

When Manufacturers replace a vehicle it is to their advantage to avoid lemon law settlements and have you willingly TRADE them for a new unit.

In most cases this gives then a used vehicle to sell with NO lemon law title brand needed. Allows the recovery of most of the cost of your replacement bike by selling your old one when it is supposedly fixed.

Yeah it also allows them to avoid something like this

There are always going to be those who take advantage of the system. Any system. But the system works. It's worked better than any other system in the world.
