1st problem on new Trophy
« on: April 07, 2014, 09:27:29 pm »
After 1 month and 7 days of ownership the first problem has shown itself. It's not a big deal but the pillion heated seat has no off. The 1st position on the rocker switch indicates on the display as 1st heater position on selecting off it still indicates on, when I select 2nd position the indication shows  2nd heater indication. So basically no off between 1st heater position and second position. Call to the dealer tomorrow.

Hi Terry,
I managed to drop my bike on to it's side a couple of months ago whilst taking it off the centre stand.  :430:

When I picked the bike up the exact same fault happened to me. It had cleared itself when I switched it on the next day to try and diagnose the problem. Works perfectly now.

Terry.... how long did it stay indicating on???

There is a slight delay on the icon on the info screen for both the handlebar grips and the heated seats after turning them off, although both of the dots are not shaded showing they are not on either heat setting.

Dont ask me how or why but when I started up this morning the fault has cleared, so happy days again. Just booked in to the garage to have the adventure bars fitted, 4 hours work so loan bike offered - wonder what they have to offer?  :001:

Mechanical devices don't heal themselves.  It'll probably show up again.

I had the same problem. After ECU change with software/firmare upgrade the symptom never occurred again.

It only happened to me the once.

Hasn't ever re-occurred.

Hi terrytriumphgt1051,

I think cropbiker may have had the answer there -
The Seat symbol stays on the instrument panel display after the Heated Seat is switched off,
but both of the indicators underneath the seat symbol should be "empty", to show it is not switched on,
then after a few seconds delay the seat symbol itself clears from the display.

I noticed that you're having the R & G Bars fitted  :047:

Make sure if you have also got the Centre Stand bracket fitted on the lower rear engine bolt,
that the new, replacement, longer bolt - which is now supplied with all NEW R & G "Adventure" bar kits,
is used, as the original Triumph one is just a bit too short to accommodate both the Centre stand bracket,
and the R & G Bars. 

If the Dealer is using up some older stock of R & G bars, and didn't order them in for you,
it's possible that the new bolt might not be in the kit ( but is available Free of Charge from R & G Racing  :169: )

It's easy to tell if you have the longer "bolt" as it is actually a shaft with a large nyloc nut on both ends,
as opposed to the original Triumph bolt with a "head" at one end, ( right ),
and a thread with washer and nut on the other end ( left )  :028:
