    Old Member- new bike!

    Hello again,

    after snooping here rather passive for some time I took the plunge yesterday and got a 2015 in beautiful blue. I currently live in Marin county, north of the Golden Gate Bridge. Happy to be here, looking forward to measure some of the NorCal twisties.

    Cheers to that!  :821:

    Hi fluxxcomp and :400: to the Club !

    Have you checked that you have the latest Audio Software version,
    and that the Ignition Wiring Safety Recall inspection has been done ?  :028:

    Cheers  :821:

    @coconut: I called the Triumph dealer nearby and had him check the VIN: the recall inspection is still pending. how critical is this? Can I at least do a test ride? I rerad about the Audio SW draining the battery earlier, I will check for that now.

    Is there a way to lookup the Service history? the check book was not stamped, doe this mean the pre-owner did a self-service? (I may jus open another thread in the service corner).


    Thanks to the Community.

    Any Service carried out by a Triumph Dealer should be recorded on their electronic system,
    which is usually done, and also recorded by the Dealer in the Owner's  Service Booklet ,
    which is often NOT done !

    If you ask yoru local Dealer they should be able to look up the Service History
    for you and probably print you a copy.

    With regards to the Safety Recall Inspection, it is not mandated
    as a "Do not ride" until completed recall. 

    The consequences however are that the Ignition could unexpectedly switch off
    causing the engine to stop running - which could be disastrous on a Bend or during
    an overtake, so I would be very wary until the Inspection has been carried out.

    Cheers  :821:
