owner of the TEX took it for a service & as part of that the Triumph dealer has to check all the gaskets that they can get to are tight - including the header gaskets, the mechanic was looking at these with a torch & noticed the hairline cracks then.
there are no leaks (yet) but he is going to get them welded soon before they expand any further.
Think I'd better have a look at mine! Always thought that it chuffed a tiny bit, but maybe just me. Don't know what I'll be able to see past the radiator though.

Be good to know also who he uses to get them welded (assuming they do a good job).

He is having the welding done next week, bike is in with Hemel Triumph for some other bits he wants doing. Apparently they have an independent welder who comes in once a month.
If the welder makes a good job of it, he is going to get his contact details & i will post on here.  :028:

on another note there is news (probably old news now  :187: )  that the owner of the land doesn't want a motorcycle dealer on the same land as a couple of car dealerships as "they dont bring in enough revenue"  :005: so Hemel Triumph is closing. but as there are no other triumph dealers in the West London area (Metropolis closed last year) now Triumph are building a new dealers in the Watford area  :152:

I was wrong this is new news, when my work mate was in hemel triumph last week the member of staff he was talking to had only found out that day that they were closing so was very keen to book his bike in for service and welding

So it's old news. But could it be fake news? Who knows .....  :027:

AFAIK there will be a Triumph dealer in the Oxford area (now that Hughenden has lost its franchise). But as to when ... again who knows?
