Aren't they BMW based? Might be worth trying a local BM workshop?


Edit - don't know where you are but someone elsewhere on this forum suggested Trike Doctor in Ashton-under-Lyne.

Did try a BMW dealer ship and because it was a trike they refused only wanted the plugs and oil doing ...I mean come on, I would do it my self but my disabilty stops me

I am going to give the trike Doc a ring I hear he is a decent chap. but BMW I mean the mind boggles.... :tapedshut: I live quite away from the Doc But will give him a call anyway.

When I wanted a job doing on my trike (to the motorcycle parts) I took it to a local small 'old school' bike workshop, they were happy to work on it. But the Conquest is a big beast, some places might not have room.

Just wondered what part of the country you're in, cos I know bikers all over and someone might know of that sort of place. Generally more helpful than big dealers!

I wondered that but of course not all Manxmen live on the island!

Surely there must be a small bike shop there that'll tackle it? Wish I could remember the name of the one that was going to fix my trike when I was there in 2003 - even offered to take the clutch cable off his wife's bike for me!

Surely there must be forums for Manx bikers?
