    engine stumble

    Hi,

    just wanted to see if anyone recognises this:

    When engine is running idle(f.e. when you're manoeuvring to get in a tight spot) , every now and then it stumbles. Engine just about keeps running after it stumbles. When that happens, the gauges ans the rest of the dash do their start up. I've had this happen twice in the last week.

    I also checked the fault codes, there are none.

    The bike is a 2015 non SE, about 30K KM, I use it every day.

    Wiring harness to ignition switch about to fail? Try running it on the stand and turning the bars to full lock both ways to try and replicate. I think full right lock stretches the wires the most. Alternatively, GENTLY push and pull the wiring harness which goes from under the left storage box to the switch. I did this near the switch area when mine failed and it was enough to get power to the bike again, but it failed as soon as I removed hand pressure.

    thx, I'll try the bar turning thing. You might be right though as it seems only to be happening when manoeuvring.

    I've an appointment with the dealer this afternoon. They didn't mention the wiring loom thing.

    It definitely the wiring to the ignition switch. Dealer hadn't heard about issues with the wiring??

    He also did not have a loaner for me so for the first time in almost 20 years I'm a few days without a bike. Not something I want to get used to :233:

    Try and get the dealer to have TRiumph pay for the repair as it is a known fault which has happened to a few on here. They paid for mine at 3tys 3 months old but only replaced the ignition switch. I now have 2 keys which is tolerable but one would be better. Pleased mine never went last year when I was at Nemrut Dagi, that would have been a long push to a dealer!

    Dutchie,

    Here's a link to the main Topic about this :
    Ignition Switch Wiring Failures

    After reading up on it so you are armed with all of the relevant information,
    I would INSIST that Triumph rectify this at their cost as it is a KNOWN fault.

    Also, if you ask, they will probably also replace ALL the locks on your Trophy
    ( Panniers, Top Box, Seat Lock and Fuel Cap ) at their expense,
    otherwise you will end up with one different key - just for the new Ignition switch,
    ( unless that is something that you actually want - some Members do ! ).

    Let us know how you get on  :028:

    Thx for the support.

    dealer has acknowledged that all the work to be done is warranty work.

    He would call today to inform me of the wiring work to be done and timelines.

    In 2003, my 1.5 year old BMW GS broke down in eastern Turkey. It had to be towed to the nearest dealer, 700 KMs away, of which I had to pay 500 kms myself.

    It wasn't my first brakedown, so afterwards I bought a Honda Varadero, just to have  a piece of mind for a couple of years.

    Just picked up the Trophy. Broken wiring has been repaired, according to the dealer in a way that is " better than new". Other wiring was checked for a too tight fit, but was found OK.

    Well, what can I say about that? I'm happy with the quick fix of course. Still, I' m worrying about all the other wiring loom issues I've read overhere.

    All I have to do now is to start trusting this bike again :084:
