Great to hear you got back safely !

For the Cruise Control :

You must be travelling at 30 MPH or higher and in 4th gear or Higher.

Press the latching Cruise Control Button IN.
There will be NO indication on the Instrument Panel when you do this.
( I usually leave mine IN all the time ).

It is then only when you press the "SET / -" Button that the Cruise Control engages,
at the Speed you are currently riding at. 
The Green Cruise Control Indicator Light will illuminate
and the Digital Set Speed will display on the Instrument Panel.

The Cruise Control Buttons "+" and "-" can then be used to change the Speed that is Set,
and the Trophy will accelerate or decelerate to that Speed, or you can accelerate and then
press the "SET / - " Button again to set the new speed.

Any of the following will deactivate the Cruise Control,
which will turn OFF the Green Indicator Light :

Operating the latching Cruise Control switch to OFF,
Operating the Front or Rear Brake
( or an incorrectly adjusted rear brake pedal Light switch
causing the Brake light to be ON unintentionally ),
Operating the Clutch,
Rolling the Throttle fully Forwards,
accelerating and holding the throttle open for 60 seconds.

If the Cruise Control remains switched ON, but is disengaged with any of the above,
then the previously set speed may be RESumed by pressing the "RES / +" button
when the Trophy will accelerate or decelerate to that speed,
or the Cruise Cintrol can be re-engaged with a new Set Speed by pressing the "SET / -" button.

The Cruise control may also disengage if too great a demand is placed on the system,
such as trying to climb a very steep hill at low speed in top gear.

Try this, and if it doesn't work, let us know -
there is a Reset process that can be carried out.

Thanks for the update - Good to hear they have now eventually sorted this out for you.

A litlle surprised you still had to pay THEM $40 though. :017:

Didn't you give them an Invoice for the Training Course you just provided ?  :745:

Cheers  :821:

Great News that your selling Dealer is taking care of this.  :028:

I had this on my 2017 Trophy during the first few hundred miles.

Returned to the Dealer who were prepared to change out the complete Clutch under Warranty
but on investigation and consultation with Triumph, they dismantled the Clutch Basket,
rotated some of the Friction plates ( I think they said by 180 degrees and possibly every other Plate )
then re assembled it, saying if I was not happy they would continue to replace the complete clutch.

The judder was completely eliminated and has been as smooth as silk ever since.

If I remember correctly I think the Dealer explained it as being something to do with the Bike
having been left standing for a considerable time, and oil soaking into only a portion of the friction plates.

Sorry I don't have any more details of precisely what they did,
but it may be worth your Dealer ( or yourself ) enquiring of Triumph about this.

email :

If you are competent enough to service the Clutch yourself ( access to the official Service Manual
is recommended ) note that there are 9 Friction plates in total.  The Outer and Inner Plates differ from
the 7 intermediate Friction Plates, and also from each other and MUST be refitted in the same place.

The Friction plates should be cleaned, their thickness checked against specifications
and then coated in clean engine oil before reassembly.

It would probably also be worthwhile carrying out an Engine Oil & Oil Filter change.

The Pivot Bolt used to secure the Gear Change Pedal, and Rear Brake Pedal ( Same Part )
are prone to breaking, particularly the Gear Change Pedal Pivot Bolt. ( Part No. T3331520 ).

It seems that there is a weak point where the threaded section joins the main body of the Part,
as this is where the breakage occurs leaving the stud of the bolt broken off,
and needing to be drilled out / use of "Easy Out" type tool.

It would appear that corrosion can form between the Pivot Bolt and the Pedal,
causing the two parts to seize together so that when the pedal is operated
it twists the Pivot Bolt resulting in the fracture at that weak point.

The solution is to keep the parts greased, although great care should be taken when first undoing them
as they are fixed in place with a Loctite type of compound, and just the action of trying to unscrew them
can cause them to break off !

You should be able to tell that the Gear Change Pedal is moving freely on the Pivot Bolt
by moving it up and down slightly by hand.

Various solutions to the problem have been suggested, including careful use of heat to the original part
when removing it - to first soften the Loctite compound ( taking care not to melt anything else ! ),
fitting new parts without the Loctite compound, but with application of a suitable Grease,
or even drilling through the centre of the part to remove the threaded section,
and then using a suitable Allen or Hex Headed Bolt.

At least one Member has fitted a Grease Nipple to the Gear Change Pedal,
while others are content with annual inspection and lubrication.

The Side Control Plate ( Footrest Hanger ) that has to be removed to access the Pivot Bolt
also has "Patch Locked" ( Loctite applied to the threads ) Bolts, and Triumph recommend
replacing the bolts with new ones whenever they are removed.

There are many Topics across the Forum discussing this -
Here's just one of them : Histroy of Shifter Lever Bolt Breaking.

I moved from Tamworth just over 5 years ago,
but will be using Sutton Motorcycles, Watling Street for Servicing etc.

They are a "new" Triumph Dealership ( "Triumph Birmingham East" ! )
being an exisiting Honda Dealership of many years, and who have been highly recommended to me.

They have / are extending their premises with additional Workshops
and a complete Showroom Floor of their 2 storey building given over to Triumph.

Cheers  :821:

Here's a drawing I made earlier - from measuring a new Triumph Part, in case it helps :
