« on: May 16, 2016, 10:07:04 pm »
greetings to all,way back in january i joined up and was impressed with the response that some of you took the time to write.
you were all correct, 1 x test ride ,1 x purchase.
i went down to A1 moto in york and met darren and his team. a few weeks later i rode down with the wife on my 2004 Pan, did the deal and the wife and i left the dealer on a brand new black 2016 se.
first impressions are /were gteat, that is ,until yesterday .
second ride on the bike trying to put some miles on her in order to get the bike back down for its first service.
my bike went into total electronic shut down whilst i was riding,there was'nt any locking up or any real danger other than i was on the a68 , which was very busy yesterday.
the bike simply stopped running, the speedo and rev counter needles have frozen at the speed  and revs as it stopped (ive never seen that before),
any amount of fiddling with key, starter, clutch pulled in ,side stand up,,,,,,, NOTHING,,,,,,completely dead !!!!
im not very mechanicaly savvy but i did look to see if the battery terminals were tight.
end result,,,,, relayed home via a local independant organised by the rac, who were excellent !
the bike had only 250 miles on her and now she is been taken back down to york tomorrow,
i'm obviously upset and dissapointed but it could have been worse, ie outside lane of a motorway or over on the continent !
if anyone has had similar experiences or any advice please share.
forty thousand trouble free miles on the pan and never missed a beat !!!!!!!!!!!!!
regards dave

Hi dave h,

Sorry to hear of this.

Some very early Trophy's were subject to an ECM recall
due to unexpected shutdown as a result of interference,
and there have been reports of momentary "blips" where instrument needles drop to zero
( accompanied by Cruise control dropping out if it was engaged at the time ),
then the needles come back up immediately with no loss of engine power,
but I have never heard of anything like this where the needles stay put in the position they were at at failure.

Please keep us posted when your Dealer finds out what went wrong  :028:

I had a Dodge Dakota that started doing that at about 300,000 km.  It was a bad ecu connector.  Replaced a couple of pins and all was good.  Eventually the ECU had to be changed because my problem was caused by corrosion of the pins and while the plug could be reconditioned the connector in the ECU just kept getting worse.  Hopefully just a loose ECU connector?

Ok got jinxed by this thread..  I road my TTSE to headquarters last night for midnight shift. It was raining pretty hard.   Got off today and after getting dressed to ride , Got on the bike in the rain put key in waited for it to cycle thru and NOTHING!!!.  got a quick notification that the traction control was deactivated but all other dash lights active,nothing no click no grunt nothing.   Got back in my cruiser drove home got my jumper cables, came back hooked cables up , turned my cruiser OFF per shop managers recommendation still nothing..  I disconnected the battery  then hooked it back up.  dash cycled thru with jumper cables on and started up but now dispalying the engine problem icon.  I have seen that before  and know it will go off after so many cycles.  I think maybe I turned key too far when I parked it last night and may have left that silly little light on in the front

Hi kniterider,

You can check what DTC Codes are stored giving you the Engine Management Light,
and display the Codes on your Instrument Panel.

Instructions can be found here : Servicing Data, Reference Info. and DTC ( Fault ) Codes
together with a downloadable list of what the codes mean.

It's not unusual to get the Low 5 volt circuit warning after a flat battery.

I don't think your problem is the same as the one experienced by dave h
who lost all power while riding, so it's probably best not to Hi-Jack this message further
and create a new one if your fault needs further discussion.

Meanwhile I can only make limited posts for the next few days,
so may not answer questions as quickly as usual,
having literally just arrived at hospital for some preplanned surgery
that will have me laid up for a while - but at least they have Wi-Fi here !

Cheers
