Warning lights while riding
Hi there again,just a quick update on whats happening.To fill in some details,bike was purchased from a dealer about 130 miles away.When breakdown occured it was recovered to closest Triumph dealer,only about 10 miles away and they cleared codes .This was quite late in day by now,so they kept bike and I returned following day,service manager and myself walked out to have another look at it and it started up straight away as if nothing had happened.They kept it for another day,then test rode it,all seemed OK so I collected it,rode home with no problem.However,as mentioned earlier,a few days later lights came on again but I got back to my lockup garage (about 20 miles away from where I actually live) .First problem occured after about 150 miles of riding,second time after just 40.
Bike is covered by Triumph used warranty till next May.Latest situation now is when I returned to lockup today,bike goes through usual startup routine,fuel pump primes and so on,but not a squeak from starter switch.When I position switch to off,fuel pump cuts out so at least that part of it works OK.
Triumph Assist (RAC) will now look at bike,try to fix problem!,and then transport bike to a different Triumph dealer,one much closer to where the bike is actually kept.This should be tomorrow (Sat).
As I think a couple of you have mentioned,its understandable why a problem that originates within ABS should knock out TC,speedo etc.,but difficult to relate that to the fact that the starter switch is dead.Have checked fuses,battery connections,would have looked inside starter switch but could not find right sized allen key,anyway dont want to start pulling bike apart too much when still under warranty,
Thanks for your comments,regards Bobcat.
