I don't mind discussing this with the forum, I just meant I'm done fiddling around with Triumph. I agree with you that Triumph undoubtedly doesn't know the answer. I know you're a techie, I'm a techie. I did lots of jobs just like this for Dupont...among other things lead design on the Quad4 plastic intake manifold. I know what they should have done, and what they more likely actually did. And we could talk about that in much more detail. My point of contention is not with their analysis and/or testing (and lack thereof)...my point is that if they are going to sell a machine and a warrantee, then they have a moral if not legal responsibility to describe explicitly what the buyer's obligations are to maintain that warrantee. That's it as far as I'm concerned. You can't "suggest" one coolant and then have all your dealerships actually filling up someone's bike with a different coolant without clarifying what the heck is going on. I don't even care which way they go with it, just a little consistency and integrity would be nice.
