Just got my recall letter today, YES ! I love snail mail.... 

Hello All - Update since my TPS has been replaced. I've placed close to 3,000 miles since my last post and the bike runs gorgeous. I also believe the bike has fallen into the broken in really nice and she runs very smooth. I have to say that I am surprised with the 3 cylinder performance and overall smooth acceleration of the bike. I'm basically comparing this bike with the (2004 BMW K1200GT) that had just over 100,000 miles on the odometer. Going a lil'  :451:  Regards - Dan

Glad you had a good trip Engage. I feel you have to put them there reliability worries out of you mind as I think most of the TT's specially the later ones are fine,


Sounds like you had a nice trip.! Try to keep the bad thoughts out of your mind like Roger had mentioned. You have a fairly late model TT and you should be fine!  Ride On !

Good luck Scott, keep up posted and I hope all works out well...

I've had a strong fuel vapour smell in my garage since I brought the bike home 2 weeks ago. Even my wife is commenting on it.  Asked the dealer who so far does not seems to have much of a product knowledge.  Top item on
It's of things to do first service.

Ian - There was a recall on the gas tanks. Call you dealership and tell them about the problem and your tank will be covered. Make sure you do this because the tanks are made in Germany and the laminated layers that hold them together were splitting causing he leaks.

Thanks Berber. I gathered from reading the forum that the TPS maybe the problem. Funny how we riders know the problems but Triumph is not addressing the issue with any urgency. They may take a different view if someone is injured as a result of the problem. Hope it never comes to that because no one will be a winner.

Abner62 - I understand your pain. I took my bike to the dealership with that problem and it took 5 weeks to get the part to the dealership and only 6 hours to put it in. The bike runs fine now and like you had mentioned there seemed to be a lack of urgency from the folks at Triumph (here in USA) and every time I called the customer service would give me kip service with no resolution. You would think after having the problems that everyone here, Triumph would at least follow up with a courtesy call or Gawd forbid them discounting an accessory...

After waiting 5 weeks for Triumph to send my TPS to the dealer, my bike is now finally fixed. The bike runs great and I'm really happy now. The worst part about this was the bike was at the dealer the whole 5 weeks and they would not allow me to take it until the part came in because of the stall while riding indicator. Time to start racking the miles back ;-)
