    Guys. Several months back I bought a 2013. It was a great bike and I had zero problems with the bike. I enjoyed riding the bike but could never find peace of mind owning the bike given some of the issues with the first and second year model. Long story short, I sold the bike (regret set in). Move forward

    I have found a 2017 and considering purchasing the newer model.

    Questions: Where all the issues worked out of the bike by 2017?
    Keep the rubber side down and the shiny side up.

    I had one of the first "Launch" Models, and now have a 2017.

    I've hed zero problems with the engine / Cylinder head etc,
    and have the benefit of the improved Cruise control switch buttons
    which are longer and easier to reach.

    I don't have any details of when some of the updates were implemented,
    but there was also the rear fender extender included as standard,
    a new style of Clutch Cover - with the triangular Triumph logo,
    an updated Gear Selector Drum and Selector Forks,
    and an updated Gear Position Sensor with an additional wire.

    There may be others that are not so obvious !

    The only real problem I've had was with the Ignition Switch,
    that ALL Models could potentially suffer from, but this has been
    addressed by the Worldwide Safety Recall Inspection.

    I the gear selector drum and gear selector forks a direct replacement for the earlier models, and what is the extra wire on the gear sensor for and is there a place to connect it to the circuitry on the earlier models.

    There's a seperate Topic about :

    Triumph Tech News #168 Modified Gear Selector Kit


    With regards to the Gear Position Sensor modification, it is discussed in this Topic :

    Major help needed - New Member

    Where the later 4 wire Gear Position Sensor is fitted,
    a "Fly-Lead" or "Sub Harness" is used ( Available as Part Number T2509977 ),
    which connects between the original Trophy Harness Sockets
    for the Gear Position Sensor and the MAP Sensor,
    and to the new Gear Position Sensor and original MAP Sensor.
