What has been the biggest engine problem in this Bobber engine to date

Does anyone know what if any engine issue has occurred with the motors in the Bobbers? Not that I’ve had one issue yet but is there any issue that seems to come up more than any other? Or any other mechanical issues with the bike in general? So far I’ve had my Black a little over a year and no issues whatsoever. I leave there battery tender on and she fires up quickly every single time.

My Bobber is my third Triumph with basically the same engine. I haven't had a lick of trouble with any of the three. The Bobber has had some electrical problems. For example, my tail lights kept coming unplugged but it was an easy fix.

Quite a few of us have had some oil leaks and had the loom changed. Not necessarily an engine problem per se, but definitely a Bobber problem.
QC is not the best, IMHO.
But Triumph have been great to deal with and honored the issues I did have (the oil leak being the biggest/most worrying issue).
