Welcome to the site and congratulations on your new BB! Any changes planned right away or are you going to ride it for a bit to see what you'd like to tackle first?

Each one matters.

Well I guess I must start off with a bit of a sour note... first week in I have 250 amazingly enjoyed miles.... then out of no where the dreaded engine management light comes on... and fails to go off... followed by the dreaded red engine coolant light... RAC called, long story short after a week of ownership my BB was taken away on a trailer and back to the dealer, it’s looking like a wiring fault which is under investigation, waiting for replacement wiring from triumph under warranty and no clear indication of when I can expect my pride and joy back! Gutted isn’t the word! Anyone else have anything else like this happen to them?!

Welcome to the forum.

Sorry to hear about the problems with your bike. Hope you get it fixed soon.

Being a Scotch lover I love your country! I've been over three times now. Each time was an experience.

Hi Dave,

Sorry to hear that mate. I had a similar issue. I think I was at around 700 miles, about a week after my first service. I was camping and out on the road by myself when the engine check light came on. I called my dealer and they said it was likely just a glitch and if so the system was designed to rest after the bike had been switched off and restarted around a dozen time. So with their advice I just carried on and sure enough later that day the engine light went off.

Not much help I know but thought I would share it.

Hope all works out, just hang in there these annoyances are a pain but hopefully it will all work out.

Cheerio,

Roy

Welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear about that problem particularly as you were on the high of just getting started with the bike. Hopefully they’ll correct it quickly and you’ll be on the road again. And when you start considering mods from what others here have done, you’ll find they’re almost endless.
