    There was a case of this near exactly at the RAT forum, but I can't remember the resolution. It might have been a faulty servo motor for the exhaust valve.

    It seems to me that your dealer didn't do a very good job of installing the heated grips then tried to cover up the damage. I've just been looking at Triumph's instructions for fitting the heated grips and it is quite involved requiring removing the headlights and messing with the wiring. It obviously takes time and care to do the job properly and there are numerous warnings in the instructions to be careful not to trap or kink any wires as this may cause electrical problems. Just wondering if a rushed job might have caused your issues?

    Quick update:

    Just got back from the dealership, figured I'd drop by unannounced.

    The dealer hooked the bike up to the diagnostics and it's reported the same issue as before. Exhaust valve actuator.

    They relayed it to the factory (i.e. HQ), and they asked for some further testing to be done. Dealer sent over the data and it sounds like factory are stumped. They think something else is causing this but can't point to anything off hand.

    Apparently, I will be getting a call from Hinkley later.

    The bike as of today :expressionless:

    buenas noches amigo, lamento que tengas estos problemas. Tengo que decir que mi escape dejó caer el protector de la válvula y lo llevé la semana pasada para montarlo. Una vez que la armaron, arranqué la moto, el tablero mostraba "falla de transmisión" y cuando la apagué y encendí nuevamente "falla de motor". La volvieron a llevar adentro y salió sin fallar. Segun me dijeron fue porque tenian que subir una actualizacion y que la moto habia detectado un cambio de inclinacion, no se si es verdad o me dijeron que me callara, pero como andaba apurado No hice hincapié en el tema, trataré de averiguar más esta semana si puedo. Saludos y espero que tu problema se solucione lo más rápido posible. Disculpe mi traductor de google ingles

    Translation: "Good night friend, I'm sorry you're having these problems. I have to say my exhaust dropped the valve guard and I took it in last week to mount it. Once they put it together, I started the bike, the dash showed "transmission failure" and when I turned it off and on again "engine failure". They took her back inside and she got out without fail. According to what they told me it was because they had to upload an update and that the bike had detected a change in inclination, I don't know if it's true or they told me to shut up, but since I was in a hurry I didn't emphasize the issue, I'll try to find out more this week yes I can. Greetings and I hope that your problem is solved as quickly as possible. Excuse my google english translator"

    Hi Rixton, thank you for the information. Yes, I believe these exhaust valve actuators are VERY sensitive. If they report that they are unable to fully open or fully close or the calibration is not correct the bikes will throw errors like crazy.

    If and when my issue is sorted and I am back on a bike the first thing I will be doing is fitting the Healtech ESE.

    Pictures from SC website.

    That’s the best looking exhaust I’ve seen on the 1200RS. It seems to come with either a carbon fibre or titanium finish. The titanium would look really good on a silver bike. I’m not usually tempted by after-market exhausts…..

    Triumph are ignoring my request for a replacement (despite having had an opportunity to resolve the issue) and instructed the dealer to replace the following:
    • Mid-section of the exhaust which is essentially the silencer box that sits on the underside of the bike. This is the part that the exhaust valve is actually attached to.
    • Exhaust valve actuator (the motor that determines how closed / open the valve is)
    • The Bowden cable assembly that translates the position of the actuator to the actual valve.
    Essentially, the entire group of components that relate to the exhaust valve opening / closing behaviour (apart from the ECU).

    Did you really think they would? Is it on finance? If so take it up with them....apart from the problem your having are you happy with the bike? Or will you get shot of it once the problem gets sorted? All bikes and cars are a pain in the arse......but we still keep buying them....

    Not on finance.

    I hoped they would, given they've already swapped the exhaust actuator and THE SAME issue presented again under 20 miles later. Going to see what they say tomorrow.

    To answer your question:

    Yes, other than this, I am indeed happy with the bike. If they sort me out one way or another, and it's trouble-free, great!

    If, however, I am back in the dealership with more problems, I'll look to get shot.

    Quick update on my situation. They're putting me on a new bike with a warranty extension to 4 years.

    Never say never :)

    Yup. Good outcome for sure and can't fault the service from both the dealer or the factory.

    I will, of course, be staying with the brand :cool:

    Fingers crossed I don't have any major troubles with the new one. Healtech ESE will be going on asap!!!! Done with bloody exhaust valves!
