    Low voltage on 2013 only?

    As a owner of a 2013, I realize that there has been very few changes through the years to the bike. Mine, like many other 2013,s , seem to show the low voltage warning upon startup no matter what. Doesn't seem to matter if the bike has a new  battery thats fully charged, message still appears and bike starts without issue. Warning disappears shortly after startup.  I'm curious as to whether or not this occurs on the later year models or if it's just a 2013 oddity. I would think all the models would display this oddity given the similarity between the model years and no changes to hardware or software (after the software upgrade to fix the battery drainage issue that plagued most of the early adopters).

    Do you 2014-2016 owners also see the message?

    Thanks,

    Greygoose

    My 2013 displayed this message as well.  I'm 3 years on the original battery and don't receive the warning anymore. Somewhere along the string of warranty repairs, recalls, and updates, the message stopped appearing.  After 26,000 miles and 3 years, my Trophy is better than when it was new.

    I've never seen the "Low Voltage" message on my August 2012 TTSE either - although, when I bought her in January 2015 almost the first thing I did was replace the Original Battery as when fully charged there was never more than 12.5 volts available at the Terminals.
    I fitted a Lithium Ferro Phosphate (LiFePo4) Battery instead and have never had a Battery Related issue since, even if I leave the bike for up to 5 weeks at a time, she always starts on the first press of the button

    Maybe the more appropriate question here is: Has anyone with the "low voltage message" appearing at each startup ever been able to remedy the situation through some sort of servicing?

    I was under the impression that this was just a "2013 personality" issue since the bike starts up each and every time (but does require a 5 second wait after ignition is turned on and clutch pulled in).  But if the majority of the bikes out there dont see this warning message, i was going to see if the triumph service department in my area knows of the fix.

    please advise.

    My 2014 has done it, but haven't seen it lately.
