Engine management light
« on: September 01, 2014, 06:55:58 pm »
 When I start the bike, sometimes the red warning light comes on with a message saying the suspension is not setting which in turn throws the engine management light on. The bike has been with the dealer for a week and they say they have found a frayed wire and also I need to follow a start up procedure? Now I don't know about you but i've had the bike for six months from new and I've always put the key in, wait for the clocks to set then fire up. I smell a rat! Any thoughts please? :440:

Owners Handbook - Page 96 :

Note:
• When the ignition is switched on, the tachometer and speedometer
needles will quickly sweep from zero to maximum and then return to zero.

The instrument warning lights will illuminate and will then go off
(except those which normally remain on until the engine starts -
see 'Warning Lights' on page 24).

It is not necessary to wait for the needle to return to zero before starting the engine.

Is your Dealer a member of the local Rat Pack ?  :015:

Thanks for that coconut. I thought I hadn't read  about a "start up procedure" I think this is starting to look like a job for trading standards as it's been back four  times in six months and i've now lost all confidence in it and the dealer. Shame really. Hope you're keeping well mate

Hi welshanproud. If your TT is financed get onto the finance company and tell them the goods are not fit for purpose. Tell  the dealer your not happy with the evaluation and get them to return it to Triumph. Write to triumph direct and explain the situation. Ask them to take the TT in themselves to repair it or replace it with another one. This worked for me and I ended up with compensation for the hassel.

I have noticed that seems like every 5th time I start my bike it takes a little longer for the "start-up" procedure for the suspension. It will cycle 3 complete times and then it was ready to go. Kind of odd that it would have to do that every so often. I guess the ECU has to go through a complete re-boot to clear out some kind of errors or something.

I can't remember the exact number but certainly not as low as every 5th ride. The TES system of the bike does do a much fuller calibration which can seem to take a while. Just let it do its thing.

Normally the TES adjustment is done by the time my screen has reached riding position.

If yours is really doing a full calibration every 5 th ride it might suggest an issue. Next time you are at your dealership I would get them to check it out just to be safe.

There's a full description of how and when the TES system adjusts and / or calibrates, over in the :
"HOW TO : Check the most common faults and issues - Page 3" Topic  :169:

Scroll down the alphabetical list of Subjects to :
"TES ( TRIUMPH ELECTRONIC SUSPENSION ) - CALIBRATION & ADJUSTMENT, where it says :

The Pre-load motor Calibration is performed after each 50 Ignition On cycles,
and should take 20 - 30 seconds.

I thought it was something like that but not being at home I don't have the manual with me!

I knew I could rely on coconut to supply the details!

I'm more a concept man!
