    UPDATE:
    So I got it back from the dealers yesterday all working. It was my own fault, when I fitted the Evotech tail tidy I pinched one of the wires. This caused the rear light cluster to fail and (god knows why) blew the front brake switch.

    Triumph were reasonable and paid for the parts, I paid for labour so can’t really fault them there.

    Just glad to have a resolution and a working bike. Rode home 40 miles in the pouring rain but still with a smile on my face!

    Andy.

    I had problems with the rear brake light switch blowing.
    Each time it did, the brake light stayed on, the cruise control and the mobile mode change functionality wouldn't work.
    Not sure what the issue was, but had it changed twice and it now seems ok.

    I did that to the indicator wires when I first fitted an Evotech tidy to my previous bike. I even saw fit to mention it in this post (back in April) - but just didn't associate it with the problem you were experiencing.

    Great to hear it's sorted now :)

    Early Honda NC750s had a bug in their firmware which kept resetting the trip - very annoying. Anyway I think most had their instruments replaced under warranty and the mileage was zeroed. Worth noting if you are buying a 2014/15 NC.

    I'm guessing latest Triumph models are using CAN bus now then? So switches now just talk to a chip using lower voltage and power, probably built down to minimum spec, hence when a fault occurs and they see 12v they can't take it / "computer says no".

    Had similar on a 2012 Multistrada, LH heated grip failed on edge of warranty, component replaced, computer still said no, suspected wiring fault to be traced (at my expense), at which point I said no, keep it. Then went out and bought a (then new) 2015 94R which has minimal "electronics". Peace and reliability ensued. :)

    Several times now, and the seat too. KInda think that this is more of an owner issue.....

    Put a couple of washers under the seat catch when I first got my 94R to raise catch and make it latch easier. A bit different now on latest 2 part seat models, but might still be relevant.

    Out today and I noticed oil weeping out the filler cap. Luckily I was near a dealer so popped in there and they replaced the o ring as it was stretched. The other dealer must have overtightened it.

    I had the same problem - there was a faulty batch of soft o-rings (apparently). As you tighten up the filler cap, it causes the o-ring to push out and leave a loop hanging...and out comes the oil :expressionless:

    I totally forgot about updating this!

    The bike went in to get the faults investigated, initially I was given a replacement lever the dealer had in stock and they said they'd pass it on to Triumph.
    When I went back the following week, Triumph had sent them a new clutch lever bracket along with a new lever, not sure if it was any different to the original.
    The indicator was replaced with no quibble.
    Finally, all the switch gear was replaced, the tech had stripped them down to investigate, nothing was found but then it wouldn't start so head office sent up replacements.
    I've since done a fair few miles in all weathers and it's all been fine.
    I can't fault my dealer either (Edinburgh Triumph), they were great.

    68 plate speed triple RS shifter issues , from time to time not selecting 4 to 5 th to 6, this makes the bike rev high causing the display to flash red. Almost through me and the wife off.

    No problem with the QS on mine.
    When I first had it, I did get a few jerky shifts but then realised I was automatically pulling the clutch in slightly, took a while to get used to it properly.

    I’ve booked into local dealer this Tuesday to have it checked over, I know of 3 people so far having a similar problem, triumph ain’t accepting this at the moment due to not enough complaints being raised.

    Yes I am, it'll be going back for the second time about this, once the weather picks up.
    It does Sounds exactly like What's happening to mine, would you keep me posted on if they sort it please mate? If they tell you please pass on the info how they rectified the problem.

    My brand new RS was pouring oil from the dipstick, turns out there was no o ring at all. Now fixed but some burnt oil stains on the heat shield that won’t come off. They will replace it at first service.
    Not inspiring at all. My paranoid mind hopes the o ring didn’t fall into the motor somehow, pretty unlikely I guess
