FWIW the problem started on mine during a week long trip - riding along in
the Spring sunshine in Southern France, beautiful scenery, no other traffic,
bends for miles, etc, bike running a treat, smooth, just dial in a speed on
the throttle and it's there, effortless, in short everything pretty much OK
in the world.
Then suddenly it started, coming into a downhill bend.
One minute it was a 400 mile/day can't wait to get back on it again bike,
next minute it was a buzzy vibrating 50 mile max thrash it and bung it in
the garage and forget it bike.
At the time I did all the obvious checks with what tools I had with me, like
what's come loose/broken off.
Nursed it for a bit waiting for the bang which didn't come.
Letting it cool off a bit helped for a few miles.
Got back to the UK confident that Triumph would sort the problem under
I am now 3 months older and a little wiser.
Short of a complete engine out strip I checked most things out. Contact me
off site if you want the details.
Hope you get it sorted
