Build date?
« on: April 10, 2015, 12:02:10 am »
Now that I'm retired, I've been looking at a couple of 2014 TTSE's and was wondering.. with all the recalls etc.. is there a build date where there are no more recalls/problems?
Do I have to look at a 2015 instead? 
thanks

My 2014 has a build date of July 2013. It did qualify for the ECU recall which took almost an hour to do, but it has been trouble free for 21,000 miles. I think it was around September when Triumph made the rear fender extension a standard item. I had to order one for my bike. My dealer did let me have it for $10 though.

Interesting.  I picked up my new Blue TTSE on 29 August 2014.  It had just reached the dealership a couple days before, came with the rear fender extension already on it and was made (or so I was told) after the ECU recall.  I've had the "audio not found" error (requiring pulling and reinserting the audio fuse) once but my battery never drained.  No other problems at all with now almost 8K miles on it.

I bought it after reading the forums and fully expecting to experience some of the niggles reported by some of the 2013 and early 2014 model owners.

Pleasantly (aside from the fact that I live in west Texas and the nearest reputable dealer is 3 hours away), it's been a great owner experience.

YMMV, but my 2014 has run like a champ.

I have a fairly early build '13, 3-'13, if I recall correctly, bought new in Nov. '13, and have had NO problems at all! It did have the ECU recall, but I had no problem with the original! 7400 miles, twice to FL, love this bike!

mmlanes. My 2014 just barely made the cut for the recall and the extension. Maybe I should have waited a couple of weeks  :038:

My 2014 Australian model I picked up in November 2013 had the Ecuador recall only at 13,000 kms. Now at 68,000 kms and no issues. Bike feels like new to ride.
