That's how the bikes come from the factory. It may be a different problem but it sounds the same. At that point at the dealer we plug in the factory diagnostic system and enter an unlock code. Do you have a friendly dealer that may be willing to try unlocking it?
Yeah I understand it's unlocking the ECU but the description I've seen from a number of people in your exact same position is similar to a locked ECU. I've never had a situation like this so I haven't had a chance to try unlocking to the ECU to see if it works. The reason I want to try in the first place is that at Triumph school my Triumph instructor was very specific to say all 675 instruments from all years are compatible to all other 675s. This is prior to the new 2013s coming out with some new features. Also I know that if you buy a new instrument you will get the new style. They don't stock the older style anymore and they plug right in and work. However if you take the same newer instrument off a bike and try to plug it into a bike from a different vin range it will not work. So I'm thinking the instruments lock to the ECU vin range somehow and require ECU unlocking when using a used instrument on a different vin range.
