Maybe you need a second opinion?  Triumph Service in my region is spotty.  I bypass two area dealerships to patronize a first rate dealer 120 miles away.  To be fair, I never patronized one of the area dealerships and rumor has it they are dropping Triumph after a short run.

diet DrThunder :

Is there any update on this ?

Has the Dealer still got your Bike ?

Have they had any response from Triumph yet ?

Sorry guys, i thought I replied. Triumpb UK is dragging their feet because the bike went out of warranty while it's sitting there. They assure me that there will be no issues getting the replacement.

I finally got the bike back yesterday, and all is well. As expected, it sounds like ass, and is not loud enough to overcome highway speed noise, so I'll be looking at removing the speakers and making in-fill panels to utilize that space with something...maybe a power socket on one side and a volt meter on the other? Hmm.

dietDrThunder,

I too find the speakers of very limited value.  I only used them once in the drive to make sure they actually worked.  I Bluetooth audio to my helmet, the only way to go.  However, in the Chicago area there is so much Bluetooth interference that together with the weak Bluetooth signal from the bike, it cuts in and out an annoying amount.  Consequently, I record my music on my Garmin, and use it without the benefit of the bike to connect directly with my helmet and phone, leaving the bike audio system off and for the next owner to use.

It works great for me.

Ride Safe, after you get over the frustration of this issue, you will fall in love with the bike.

Bluetooth helmet is the way to go.  My thinking is the speakers were meant to be used for short periods when parked.  A great conversation piece when the drunks que up and ask "What is a Triumph?  Is that a communist bike?"  Guessing 'Victory' falls into that category too LOL! Or - "I didn't know they still made Triumphs" and launch into a story about their late great grandpappy...
