Have you actually tried taking out the slack in the throttle though it does make a difference.Unfortunately, that just removes slop, but my issue is the throttle by wire mapping that has no fidelity.
I have a couple of these exact same cracks on my 2013 Daytona rev counter, luckily there's only three small ones and they don't seem to have got any worse over the last couple of years, just hope the Thruxton doesn't go the same way as I love the clocks.After 3 years of ownership, I have my first real gripe. The damn lenses on my instrument bezels have developed small cracks. Hopefully I can come up with an inexpensive replacement solution instead of replacing the entire instrument cluster.
Can you put a link to the video? CheersI love this thread, I thought I was the only one harbouring annoyances about my work of art motorcycle. While it is a thing of beauty here are my gripes so far and how I have addressed them:
1) Tubed Tyres: My biggest gripe. Seriously, why Triumph?? Two punctures in 6,000 miles were not a fun experience. Have looked into aftermarket wheels or sealing the wheels - too expensive and not a reliable option. Instead I have used tyre sealant in the tubes to prevent rapid deflation. While this hurts acceleration but improves cornering stability.
2) Rear caliper placement: Is it too much to ask to have a brake caliper that does not require removing the entire wheel? Cleaning calipers is a routine job and should not be an hour-long schlapp, I have watched mechanics do this and replacing the wheel is more or less a two-man task. If Triumph can put a sensible rear caliper on the street triple why have they done this on the modern classics??? Free spirits are now making relocator brackets for the range as a result. May purchase..
3) Suspension adjustment. Manual was totally balls-up wrong. After a year of fiddling I worked out the fine tuning and ended up posting my own explanation video on youtube. All round it is a highly stiff ride, especially at the front end. The regular KYB forks may actually be better for everyday riding, having tested the regular Thruxton 1200 I wouldn't say the Showas are worth the cost in performance difference unless you're on the track.
