I've just provide a log of the same warning signs to my dealer. Who has provided them to triumph corp to get feedback on. On a couple of occasions the bike didn't start 1st time. But has always started on the 2nd occasion. Will keep the forum updated on any replies.

1st bike Yamaha DT125, 2nd bike Yamaha XV535 Virago 3rd bike Honda CBR 1000 F, 4th bike Honda Hornet 600 (story to tell) 5th bike Suzuki B-King 1300, 6th bike Suzuki GSX1250 FA. Then comes the cream of them all the TTSE in Blue the best colour in my opinion ....... :-)

mastertrophy - Our bikes are about the same vintage.  I have posted some information about similar problems with mine.  I had no start problems associated with the audio off low voltage thing.  I encourage you to look at those. Bottom line was a bad audio module.

Just returned from my dealer and here is what they are saying about this issue.... Triumph is apparently working on a fix with the manufacturer of the audio unit.  Nothing coming anytime soon.  I am hopeful this means it will eventually lead to a recall of sorts where it will get sorted out for all who have the problem.  I have heard that it may end up being a software patch.  Don't hold your breath as it could be a few months away.  If it is leading to battery drain issues I think they will suggest that a new audio module is needed.  If you are not getting serious issues than you can probably wait and see what comes down the pipe.

It could  be either as software can cause weird things to happen. It's often difficult to tell a software problem from a hardware problem.They can seem very similar in symptoms, if not exactly the same.

In this case, I will bet it's a software problem and there is a good chance an upload will fix it. But how is software uploaded to the audio module? If it has to be removed, then it might as well be a hardware problem because it's a hassle to get to because of it's location well under the seat storage box.

The Trophy audio system software can be updated via the USB port in the Glove box,
as discussed in a previous Thread here : Plaudit Radio LM3152 so there's absolutley no need
to strip the bike down and physically access the audio module  :028:
