I'm also in the waiting for what I think is the same issue as you. I first thought it was the cam chain tensioner but, dealer confirmed today it is not. So any update from you will be greatly appreciated!

According to my weak math, in 6 more days it will be 5 months since the OP! I was planning on getting a red/silver T120 when I sold my Harley, which I did yesterday....now I'm not so sure. Even the finest machine can have problems but that is not the issue here. What worries me is that 5 months have passed on a bike still in warranty and still broken. If there is another side to this story I'd like to hear it, otherwise it would appear the corporate culture at Triumph should be avoided. Beauty isn't everything.

I've just talked with my dealer and the mechanic thinks it's the cam chain. He informed me that the wait will be around 2 weeks to get my bike back according to parts availability. I think that the dealer is owner of 99.9% of the customer satisfaction. Until now, my dealer is addressing the knocking issue without any TNA help. 5 months is way beyond an acceptable delay. We need the whole story to understand clearly but, Kopfschmerzen is still quiet.
