so chapter ??? The dealership received and installed new throttle body assemblies and after a couple of test rides pronounced the bike fixed. Both the service manager and mechanic intimated that the speed with which the proposed warranty work was approved indicated that they (Triumph) had info that lead them to think that this was the ultimate fix. I am trying to maintain a positive attitude about this. Dealer has been wonderful but don't think that I would recommend this bike to anybody else. Got about 80 miles on the bike but won't be able to do serious riding until we return from riding the otherbikes up from La Paz. Stay tuned.
No, I don't think so BUT..........it may be the case that it wasn't tested following a large group that are throwing up huge amounts of dust. Could be that the answer, from Triumph, is simply a stronger stepper motor in future models.
I posted that, tongue in cheek, but I hate to worry. If this turns into what qualifies as a "known issue" in less than two years, what's going to happen when these things get along in years?
