    There you go!! Perhaps the sensor for disabling the cruise is separate from the brake-light switch? Anyways, good it’s sorted. This was my only problem, except from the sticky clutch lever, but I sorted that before it became an issue, that’s a 3 min job.

    Today went to the dealer for the yearly check-up. Got new tires fitted after about 4500 km, (now sportsmart), new engine oil + filter, brake fluid replaced, recall done on brake pads and software update. They double checked about QS linkage, but don’t have QS (luckily), so all sorted. Ready for scheduled trips to Germany!

    I’m switching out the (admittedly sweet but essentially treadless) OEM shoes for Pilot Road 5s at the 500 mile service. I live in Seattle USA and the roads are damp and slick.

    I’m keeping the sporty OEM rubber to use for a track day next summer tho. :cool:

    New 2020 RS, no issues but only 300 miles so far, so it’s what you would expect.

    Hi Jet, before you buy the Michelins, have a look at Avon Storm 3D X-M. I replaced my Michelin PR4's with them, and I think they're awesome, in the dry and wet. And a lot cheaper.

    I have a 2019 Speed Triple RS that has an engine stall problem when coming to a stop. Happens maybe 2-5 times during a 1 hour ride.
    It’s been to the dealer 4 times for this issue, the last time it was in for 5 weeks.

    I called Triumph America and they were insisting that they pick the bike up and have another dealer/shop check the bike one last time to see if my local dealer missed something.

    I called back the day after and said I just want my money back, buy the bike back because I don’t want it anymore. It’s a lemon and the resale is damaged.

    They said they’d discuss it with upper management and get back to me. That was 12 days ago and they haven’t called me back. I want to call today but am wondering if you guys have any advice.

    I have the same thing.
    Only happened 5 ish times but mine is when i'm coasting to a stop and (not sure if related), turning left.
    Dealer tried to blame the q/s but when I said it didn’t have one, he changed the story and blamed me for not riding it correctly...
    I've been riding since I was 6 and i'm now 50 with no other problems like this ever, I know he's wrong but I can’t prove it.
    Good luck!

    I've had three issues--warranty or recall-- with my 2019 Speed Triple RS since purchasing it just over two years ago.

    First was the quick shifter. I learned about potential issues shortly after joining this forum shortly after buying the bike. I shared info with the service manager at my local Triumph deal and he was on it immediately. I had a new shifter arm well ordered and installed before the recall came out on that part. That was December 2019. AZ-KKT dealt with it quickly and effectively and I've had no issues with the quick shifter at all.

    Next was a recall for my brake pads in August of 2020. I learned about that recall from three sources--my dealership, a letter from Triumph, and from the forum. Again, my dealership addressed the recall promptly. I do have some issues with brake squeal still but am hoping that dissipates as I ride the bike more and harder.

    Finally, in November of this year I had a problem on a ride where my clutch lever seized on me and wouldn't return without me pushing it by hand. My dealership addressed it quickly and effectively by checking it then ordering and installing a new clutch level assembly/perch. Works like a charm now.

    So I guess just one of these three issues was a warranty issues with the other two being recalls. At any rate, thanks to my dealership doing a great job, the issues were little more than inconveniences.

    I have an addition to my 2019 Speed RS warranty list. This one is quite minor but figured I'd post it anyway as it might be helpful so some of you. The "joystick" on the left handconrtols sticks. It wasn't too bothersome but the tech that did my recent annual service noticed it and recommended it be replaced. The service manager said that this issue is "known" so had put in for a warranty before they even shared the concern with me! Anyway, I'm scheduled to bring in my bike tomorrow to get the current sticky joystick replaced.

    Hi there!
    Does this kind of stick in place if you move it or does it move freely but it’s not activating the button/position it’s on but the last position that it was in?
    Thanks for your sticking input!

    Hi, @Ducatitotriumph. When it was sticking, it did still seem to change the screen views ok. I think it was mostly sticking in the last position used and not cleanly returning to its little joystick home at center. I hadn't really noticed much of an issue before the techs at my dealership worked on my bike. I suspect they caught it before it wouldn't work at all to activate what it was supposed to activate. Does that make sense??

    Hi all,

    Slightly different Warranty question:

    Had my new RS for a couple of months now. All run in, serviced and going great.

    Now considering a single low exhaust such as the SC Project SC1R.

    Anyone know definitively, if fitting a single low exhaust will affect my Triumph U.K. warranty? How about remapping or fitting a power commander if required? Would that affect my warranty?

    I’ll speak to my dealer, but would be interested to hear what others have said before I do.

    Roll on the spring!

    Hi there,
    I have the sc project exhaust and it's bloody lovely.
    As for remap etc, fit the pipe, start the bike and LEAVE IT ALONE UNTIL THE FAN KICKS IN.
    No blipping the throttle or touching any buttons either!
    That is all you have to do as the triumph system automatically adjusts itself to the exhaust with no remap reqd.
    As for warranty, you'll be fine BUT definitely email/call them to check that.
    Email would be best as then you'll have proof (just in case)

    This is bad information. The 12 minute tune, as it is referred to, only adjust closed loop tuning. It does not modify open loop mapping which is where it matters. That's not to say a tune is required with the SC Project slip-on. Most slip-ons wouldn't require a re-tune since most of the restriction is upstream in the cats. A tune would still benefit the bike though, slip on or not really. If you go as far as replacing header or punching out cats, the '12 minute tune' isn't going to help.

    The other bad information is that the manual says leave the bike running 12 minutes from when the fan comes on, not until the fan comes on.
