	Well, somebody's got to assemble the motor. Whether Triumph does it in
England or your dealer does it here accomplishes the same thing: a new motor
for you. This way they only have to send a minimum of new parts (no new
crankcase, crankshaft, transmission, et cetera), and the work is performed by
the service side instead of the production side. Costs and parts are typically
tracked separately for service and regular production, for good reasons.

Just a thought,
