    TES warning

    Hi guys,
    I have a intermittent warning on my TES-system. The bike adjusts the TES and when I start the bike it shoots the warning. Has anybody had this before and what could be the cause and the remedy?

    If this is the "TES Warning - Check Manual" Message in the Instrument Panel,
    then it can be caused by a failing Main Battery, where the voltage drops "too low"
    when cranking the Starter Motor, so I would have the Battery checked professionally.   :169:

    A Low Voltage on cranking the Starter can also occur when the temperature is very cold.  :190:

    Have a look at this Topic : TES Warning Check Manual

    Cheers  :821:

    Battery has been replaced before the summer, so that would be odd. That would mean the bike's chewed through two new batteries in 6 months.
    I've read in the service manual that the TES-faults aren't stored in memory. So if I happen to see one tomorrow I'll visit a triumph dealer in my parent's hometown. So... to be continued.

    I have had this warning intermittently on my '13 For all of its 88,000 miles It is more prone to happen when it is cold out, let's say below 50 degrees Fahrenheit After a short run to let the suspension warm up, shutting the bike off and restarting Normally clears it.   Dealer has never been able to find anything wrong as it leaves no codes behind In my case it occurs when I attempt to adjust  The Load Right after starting up

    Right! It's fixed. I disconnected the battery for half a minute, reconnected it, let it calibrate and do it's thing. Haven't seen the message since.

    I always thought that was good thing when TES was calibrating. I thought it was maintaining the best possible posture. I found the process was more successful if I didn't sit on the bike with additional weight during the calibration process. Just hold it upright, straddling the bike until the sequence was complete. Usually found the ride had improved folloing the TES calibration, and the act of lifting the bike to the center stand was easier, as the bike was now closer to the designed ride height.

    Sh*t... The message is back. I've had a date with the dealer to fix some panels after a unfortunate drop last holiday and the TES-warning showed up again. They recognized the issue and would look in to it. And it's only on the preload adjustment. Not the dampening.

    I am looking for the cause like Coconut described it. My SE shows the warning three or four times a year and I don't really care. It just disappears when starting for a next ride.
    @ Ikkieman: we may have a look at it when we meet on the presentation of the new 1200 Scrambler on the 8th of December.
