Daytona T595


06 Sep 2011 20:14
Prompted by last weeks article in MCN concerning ethanol in fuel I'd like to guage the extent of the problem affecting Triumph fuel tanks and any issues regarding the fuel delivery systems.

My 97 model T595 has warping along the lower edge of the fuel tank and patches of small blisters. The fuel tank was replaced in 2000 after an accident and no special precautions were taken, ie draining the system over the winter. Up till this year the finish was flawless.

Ultimately I'd like to establish for definite whether ethanol in fuel is the culprit or whether another problem such as a manufacturing flaw, for instance, may be to blame.

My concern is that at more than £500 a pop, if the problem worsens then an economic repair would not be possible and the ultimate future of the T5 would be bleak.

Please spread the word round the forum, the more replies the better.

Thank you all in advance. Gus

PS Keep the frivolities for other forums, ta! :smile:
