I found the same problem as Roadofficer says, to which I want to add something else, the heated seat icon also appeared for a few seconds.

I fixed it by replacing the battery.

The Trophy, apart from the noise of the Tricilindrico that I particularly like...

There is a noise that can be confused with the gears of the gearbox and certainly has a shake in the handlebar grips and sometimes also in the left footrest. In that case, it is very possible that they have a problem with the alternator, one that there is a part inside that is oxidized due to lack of lubrication and the alternator does not work well.

"How To's" Technical Guides / Re: How To: Adjust TTSE Valves

So…. I completed my 20000 mile service about ten days ago after following the procedure at the start of this thread, the procedure in the manual and a few other videos on Youtube. Here are are few things I found or did different as it went along:

1. I used a 5.5mm drill bit to lock the crankshaft. This provided a more positive engagement than the 6mm drill bit.
2. I purchased a piece of 7mm x 100mm stainless steel square bar to slot into the camshaft timing slots instead of the Triumph tool. It worked really well and only cost £2.80.
3. I purchased a calibrated torque wrench (0.6Nm) Sealey STS103 (0.5 to 5Nm) for £48. Never had to use it but is available should I need to change the cam chain tensioner in the future.
4. Banjo washers for the fuel tank connection.
5. Full 20000 mile service kit from Streetbike. They supply genuine Triumph parts which includes everything you need at a lower cost than other well known UK suppliers.

Overall the task went well and as I’m retired I was able to spread the task over a few days. Here are a few lessons I learnt along the way.

1. Make sure you tie wrap the cam chain to the sprockets BEFORE you remove the cam chain tensioner. I know the procedure says to do this but I didn’t and the cam chain jumped a couple of teeth meaning my timing was out at start of reassembly. ( my 7mm square bar aligned the cams perfectly on reassembly which sorted this)
2. Although I torque tightened the fuel feed pipe to the tank correctly, after refitting the fuel tank and test starting the bike I noticed a fuel leak from the banjo union. So I loosened off the tank, lifted the rear and supported it with a piece of wood and further tightened the banjo bolt in excess of the recommended torque to stop the leak.
3. When I had reassembled the cam ladder the first time after changing my exhaust shims, I rotated the engine and it was a little harder to turn than before. I ALMOST convinced myself that it was ok! The voice in my head from the procedure in this thread said STOP. I removed the cam ladder checked the cam timing with the 7mm steel bar and had to adjust the chain by about two teeth. Reassembled again and this time the engine rotation was easy. If I’d ignored the stiff engine and started the engine it would have been costly.
4. After final assembly, including all the plastic, I started it up and it started first time. I connected the Tigertool to check the throttle balance which was spot on. I checked for error messages and to my dismay there was a message showing an issue with the SAI. It wouldn’t reset with tigertool so I tried the battery disconnection
 routine and three startups but the engine management light stayed on. Anyway ten days later after returning from the USA I removed the plastic to investigate the fault. Low and behold I had not connected the cable to the air box (lower right side) so I connected the cable, checked the tigertool, cleared the error and the engine management light went out. Lesson learned, check for errors and cable connections BEFORE you put the plastic back on.

Overall I’m pleased with my efforts and it was good to complete this sort of service again. I would not hesitate to do it again as it saved me around £700 over Triumph prices. Total cost to me was £249.32 and £48 of that was for the 0.6Nm torque wrench that I never used.  :763:

How strange you mention the gear whine. I have just booked mine in with Staffs Triumph for the same problems. On returning from a trip to Wales I found that in slow moving traffic 20/30 mph the whine was obvious but on increasing my speed to 50/60mph the whine was noticeably worse with a vibration through the bars. I will let you know how I get on and what excuses I receive. :027:

I'm not feeling any vibration through the handlebars, just hearing the noise.

That doesn't seem right.

According to Page 37 of the Owners Handbook :

By default the last selected Trip Computer (TRIP 1 or TRIP 2)
will be displayed when the ignition is turned on.

I just checked for you on my Trophy :

If TRIP 1 is displayed on the Instrument Panel when I turn the Ignition OFF,
TRIP 1 is displayed when the Ignition is turned ON, and also when the engine is started.

If TRIP 2 is displayed on the Instrument Panel when I turn the Ignition OFF,
TRIP 2 is displayed when the Ignition is turned ON, and also when the engine is started.

To switch between TRIP 1 and TRIP 2 - briefly press the Select ( "i" ) button.

If you have TRIP 2 selected, try switching to TRIP 1 ( "i" ) button,
turn the Ignition OFF, wait 30 seconds, then turn the Ignition back ON and see if TRIP 1 is still displayed.

If it is, switch to TRIP 2 and turn the Ignition OFF, wait 30 seconds and turn it back ON.

It should not be possible to have TRIP and TRIP 2 set with exactly the same Items
in either the Upper or Lower dispaly lines.

If the issue persists, you could try going into the Menu
and changing one or both of the displayed Items for TRIP 2
and see if this makes any difference :

Press and hold the  "i" button to enter the SETTINGS Menu
Scroll to TRIP SETUP and press the "i" button
Scroll to TRIP 2 ITEMS and press the "i" button
At the TRIP 2 ITEMS "UPPER" screen, use the Scroll Button
to change to a different Item, then press the "i" button to save.
The display will change to allow selection the Item for the Lower display line
so you can either change this, or press the "i" button to leave it as is,
and Exit the Menu.
Scroll to EXIT and press the "i" button to exit the SETTINGS Menu.

Try again and see if it's made any difference.

If not then one more "last resort" thing to try, is to switch the Ignition OFF,
leave it for 30 seconds then disconnect the Main Battery
and leave it disconnected for 10 minutes before reconnecting. 

Some Members have reported that doing this can resolve some strange electrical glitches !

Cheers  :821:

Indeed, I don't understand that either, everyone should be a member of such a great forum.

First ride is over, it takes some getting used to but it drives fantastic  :046: , ABS DTC is now out. 
just took a few photos, the other motorbike is a rental motorbike from my son, he rented a motorbike for the weekend..
 
Have tested the following things while driving
- cruise control works
- heated grips works
- heated seat works
- Also the accelerator and brakes have been tested, of course.

the seller said that the engine shifted a bit difficult and went into neutral, with me it shifted well up and down, also in neutral.

what I find strange is when I turn off the TT and the screen shows TRIP 1 then I start it then jumps to TRIP 2, when I turn off the engine it remains TRIP 2, but when I start again it jumps back to TRIP  1. is that normal? or is that a setting?

Was just wondering. Currently fairly happy with the standard comfort seat from Triumph. I have a spare seat, the stock low seat that came with the bike, that always pushed me forward/very uncomfortable. I was considering using it as the donor for the Russell Day Long. Just wondered if it was a bit higher after their work, kinda hoping so.
