500 miles service report
« on: October 30, 2013, 10:59:40 PM »
Standard stuff, total cost was 216 Otd.  Oil, filter, rear drive oil and gaskets around.

They did have some warranty work they did with a loose radiator hose.  It had leaked a bit inside the fairings.  Good thing they were in there as it was just going to get worse.  I would have eventually found it either leaking fluid or smell.  Not sure what they charged Triumph for that work.  Overall I'm pleased with the work.

Saw Ed's new top case in the box waiting to put on his new Trophy while I was there.  That's my next purchase.

Good show, especially the rear drive oil.  I understand a lot of dealers are missing that.

It was $299 OTD for me which seems pretty high for an oiled change and the driveshaft fluid change. I've heard of other that we're charged $150 or so.

They also updated the software. When I turn on the ignition and turn the kill switch to 'on' the bottom of the screen blinks displaying 'radio off' and the cruise control symbol as the cruise control light blinks. I asked the tech about it and he said the update went well and the bike seems to run ok. I didn't have any mechanical issues.

Just curious about the flashing message and the cruise control light blinking. Anyone else have this issue with the new update?

Mine seems all normal after the update.  I'll put 300 miles or so on this weekend and report after that.

I had to a chance to get out for a nice ride today and I learned that the new tune has disabled my cruise control. Everything worked before the new tune. I stopped by the dealership to get the tune reinstalled and they only have one triumph mechanic. He is out for a couple of weeks due to a surgery. I wonder if anything else is wrong with the bike or if I should continue to ride it with this tune?

Not quite sure what you mean by a "New tune" unless it was the software update ?

I don't know whether "Cruise" has to be enabled in the Triumph software,
andnd your problem is as simple as the mechanic forgetting to do so,
but there are several things that can prevent the Cruise from engaging,
such as :
Starting with the obvious ... Cruise Control switch is "off",
Front or Rear brake applied ( or faulty brake switch / wiring
causing brake light to be permanently "on" ),
Clutch lever applied, or faulty as above,
Throttle "Roll off" switch applied, or faulty as above,
ABS de-activated due to fault - ABS warning light on.
Faulty gear select / position switch indicating gear is 1, 2 or 3,
Bike not being ridden within parameters for Cruise control :
( Between 38 & 100 MPH and in 4th, 5th or 6th gear ).

This should give an idea of things you can check until your mechanic returns  :028:

Thanks Coconut.  Yes, I mean software update. Before the new update was put on my bike I didn't have any issues. Cruise control worked fine. I'm hoping that if the mechanic can reinstall the update, that I would be okay.

Re: 500 miles service report & TES LONG recal??
« Reply #7 on: November 08, 2013, 03:32:44 AM »
Lights flashing like that is not normal of course, I expect the bike was trying to call out in distress but the Tech wasn't listening....

I had the battery changed out early on, had a bad OEM one.  The guy that installed it said everything was fine except the TES Recalibrating message would not go away... He was unaware that upon battery disconnect, the system has to do the 1-2 minute dance to recalibrate...  But I knew that...

Speaking of that, mine does the LONG recalibration at startup every once in a while, usually after a fuel fill.  Anyone else seeing that????
