Ignition Switch Wiring Failure LIST of Members affected !
« on: September 03, 2019, 07:06:49 PM »
NOTE : This Topic is "Locked" so comments may not be added,
however PLEASE READ - as your HELP is needed !

Members may already know about the problem of Ignition Switch Wiring failures,
discussed extensively in these Topics :

Ignition Switch Wiring Failures,

Complete electrical shutdown,

Ignition switch wiring

No Horn, Front & Rear Position Lights or Brake Light,

Ignition switch diy repair,

.... and probably several others.

I have noted that Members increasingly reporting such Faults are receiving a response from Triumph
that it is NOT a "known issue" and are not receiving any help with rectifying the fault.
( Most Owners are now out of their initial 2 year Warranty period ).

More importantly than the financial cost and inconvenience of repairs, it is my personal opinion
that this is a SERIOUS Safety issue where a rider could experience a total loss of power while riding,
with no warning, that could easily have disastrous / fatal consequences.

It is for that reason that I have published the below list for reference,
collated from many of the Posts within this Forum, clearly demonstrating
that this is NOT an isolated problem.

I am not normally the rebellious type, but as can be seen from the List,
this problem can affect ANY Trophy from 2012 onwards, and I intend to write
to both Triumph and the UK Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency ( DVSA )
urging Triumph to reconsider this matter, and devise a solution that can be applied
as a Safety Recall, BEFORE the above potential consequences are realised.

In order to do this I need YOUR help.

Please check the below List to make sure you are on it, if your Trophy has had this problem.
If not please let me know .......

I then need you to send me some additional details, by Private Message,
which I will not disclose on the Forum,other than updating the below list with the anonymised details.

Please send me the following details :

  • Name
  • Address
  • Trophy Registration / VIN Number
  • Year of manufacture
  • Approximate Mileage when fault occurred
  • Approximate date of failure
  • was this reported to Triumph ?
  • Was this reported to DVSA ( or the equivalent Department of Motoring outsdie the UK ) ?

I will assume that by providing the above information you consent to it being included
in my correspondence to Triumph Motorcycles Ltd. and DVSA.

Of the 35 Members in the below List, I am still waiting hear from 11 of them,
and although I appreciate some Members may have moved on, I think the PM's
would still be sent to them, and would ask that if you have NOT received my message(s),
that you check your Junk Mail folders !

Also, if you know of amnyone else that has had this failure -
whether they are a Forum Member or not, please ask them to get in touch.

There are a couple of Members that have confirmed they have had this failure,
but have not yet provided all of their details ( as listed below ) - Of particular importance
is their VIN Number for verification of the range of bikes produced that have been affected.

Time is of the essence here, and the sooner I can send my report off to Triumph and UK DVSA,
the sooner something might be done about this.

Thanks  :821:
