New owner 2 weeks with a few questions
« on: November 18, 2013, 05:51:33 am »
1- am I the only one noticing the guages are way off on the Trophy? Speed 3-6mph higher depending on speed, mpg (us) +4 at least!

2- can somebody point me to the thread showing how to get power to my gps? (It only connect with a micro USB).

3- heated seat. I barely feel the head. Is that normal?

Welcome to the forum! :400:

All speedos overhead the speed… it is done deliberately.

Search using Garmin 660 as that is what most guys are using and also in the HOW TO section you will find great instructions on stripping the firing down and showing where the GPS power is

Surprised at your heated seat…. mine can burn my ass!

  Welcome to the forum from Ventura County!  Good to see a new member from SoCal...  I can't help you on the heated seat problem (don't have that option), but as far as the speedo being off, well, mine reads about 5% high, which is better than the 10% high that my Suzuki shows. As others will tell you, it's pretty typical.
  For GPS, I have the Garmin 660, and as Cropbiker said, there's very good info on installing that (along with the necessary accessory kits from Triumph).  Mounting anything else, you're kind of on your own.  No micro USB, just the USB in the storage box for your iPod, etc.  Good luck & ride safe!

Hi Larry, and  :400:  to the Club !

I would get the dealer to check the Heated seats are working properly.

Even on the low setting you should be able to feel the heat
( takes no more than a couple of minutes to come through )
and on the High setting it shoudl be nice and toasty !

Hi Larry and  :400: to the forum!

Cropbiker answered all the questions.

About the heated seat: have it checked by your local dealer! Mine goes from cozy (stage 1) to "hot ass" (stage 2) with no problems!
When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.

I'll get that seat checked out.  Because on the max setting I can even forget I turned it on.
Now on the GPS and the 12V line coming out, I might have to check with the dealer as well then.
And for the Stoney, I should come and check out your bike some day. How many miles you got on it?
