    First Test Ride: Awesome, but TPMS light and no grip heating on 1 side

    Greetings TT owners! I'm hoping to be joining the ranks and introducing myself in the new member section shortly should I take the plunge!

    I have wanted something fun to do more comfortable yr round riding after selling a V4 cruiser I loved. Alas, no cruise, heat, windshield, ABS... I test rode 2 FJRs and liked but didn't love them. Awesome bikes, just didn't have the must have it feeling. Well yesterday i rode a TTSE. Without even customizing any suspension options, the ride itself was everything I wanted. Maneuvering and handling was perfect, which I felt wasn't quite what I'm used to on the FJR.

    So I'm pretty sold, looking to weigh my SE options. One I test rode had:
    • TPMS warning lights (understand from this forum seems a common issue),
    • 1 Grip didn't heat,
    • 1 saddlebag had tether broken (easy fix),
    • I didn't remember to fully test the seat warmer. I only put on last 2 mins of ride, wasn't convinced it felt warm, and it didn't show up on the dash like it should so maybe was swapped out?
    Was at a non-Tri dealer so they're not particularly familiar with these items. How big fix you think the heat would be? I imagine TPMS i'll have to live with until tire change. I'm looking at US options under 7500 (I know they're "worth" more, but since i have at least 3 leads in this range my cheapness shall prevail). I'm worried above may be representative of the mediocre care it received during its tenure. The cheapest one I found has half the miles, is in best shape, but lacks trunk and may lack heated seat which I'm keen on. Are heated seats standard in US?

    Any thoughts appreciated!  :821:

    Hi MrFeo and :400: to the Forum.

    The non working Heated Grip may be repairable.

    See this Topic :

    Heated grip failed

    If it's not repairable the individual Grips can be purchased for replacement
    but they are now quite expensive at around US $100 each.

    Part Numbers are T2042512 for the Right Hand Grip
    and T2042513 for the Left Hand Grip.

    Regarding the Heated Seat - ( all Heated Seats were optional additional accessories ),
    it's easy to tell if it is the Heated Seat as there should be a Tag Label
    visible at the rear left of the seat that says "Triumph Heated" or similar,
    or if you remove the seat ( operate the keyed lock above the rear light
    to release the Pillion Seat, remove that then lift the Rider Seat off ),
    the wiring for the Heated Seat will be obvious.
    ( There should also be the Switch fitted in the left side panel ).
    No wiring means it's not a Heated Seat.




    Note that Heated Grips AND Seats only work when the engine is running,
    and that the Instrument Panel Icons appear when they are switched ON,
    then are removed from the display a few seconds after switching them off.

    The TPMS Warning message is likely to be due to low voltage of the TPMS Sensor battery.

    For some versions the TPMS Battery can be replaced,
    though Triumph do not advertise or promote this,
    and would prefer to sell a New TPMS Sensor !

    Topic here : Replace tpms battery

    As an alternative to replacing the TPMS Battery ( or the Sensor ) some Owners
    have elected to disable the TPPMS system, which can either be performed by a Triumph Dealer,
    or ( along with many more Maintenance related operations ) by use of the After Market
    DealerTool device.

    Pannier Retention Straps are Part Number T2356025.

    Cheers  :821:

    Wow - thanks for such a detailed reply and compiling of resources!!!! :020:

    I had used the search button to look for grip threads but was coming up with lots of seat discussions... thanks for pointing me in all the right directions.

    Needless to say i'm quite keen now to make this happen. I have to do my part to stimulate this virus stricken economy and buy a fun toy to fight crime in. 2 wheels is a great way to keep sanity while also being isolated! :152:

    I had heated seats on my previous bike but not on my trophy.  I have really not missed them due to the terrific weather protection on this bike.  That's after 48,000 miles and riding at 29 degrees.

    Hi MrFeo and  :400: you have already had the usual well informed response from Coconut, what I would say is that the heated grips are normally an easy fix if it is the feed wires that have broken and the seat if working properly is red hot on the full setting either way you will find all the answers on this forum  :017:
