    Rear shock prob?

    Hey people. Recently, my 2014 Triumph Trophy SE ride isn't as smooth as before. The ride feels like there's too minimal or no rebound at all. Asked my mechanic to check on it, but seems that he says it's fine...
    The problem is that this machine comes with the TES system, therefore it's close to impossible to troubleshoot it mechanically...or I might just be wrong? No errors indicated in the system too. Any of you faced this prob before? In the long run, I fear it might also take a toll on my back and spine. Need your humble help here guys... :440:

    Did you try to change between the TES load modes and see if the bike raises and falls.
    Did you change between the TES modes. The amber light on the display should flash.

    Have you change tyres at all recently? Is the pressure standard?

    Are you sure the shock setting is solo and not 2up?

     I suggest measuring from a point on the bike to the ground like a foot peg and change the preload settings to make sure it raises and falls.

    Do the forks compress properly while  rocking the bike back and forth with the front brake applied?

    Like cropbiker suggested, any changes with the tires?

    Keep us updated.

    Also check to see if you are set to Comfort, normal or sport.  Serious difference in ride softness.

    Thanks for taking all of your time to assist me on this cropbiker, OhioWinger and oakville!

    cropbiker: Recently, I did changed both the tyres with standard tyre pressure. Have tried to pump in different pressure though. Basically, no problems with the tyres.

    OhioWinger: My shock settings are always 2up as I feel it's higher than solo. Also, I'm 1.8m so it does help. Plus, I always have my wife as my pillion. The front fork is working well too. Did the rocking of the bike check and it does compress properly. The hard ride feel is more on the rear rather than the front.

    oakville: My ride settings are always on Comfort. When I first got this mean machine, rides are all smooth and I really can feel the rear shock's rebound feel. Is this TES shocks serviceable?

    I suggest riding down the same bumpy road solo with the bike set on comfort, and then repeat with the bike on sport.  You should notice a difference.  If not, there is definitely something wrong.
