    I had similar issue with my 2010 S3 which I had from new, seemed a familiar problem to the dealer... anyway it never gave any trouble for 7 years after that when I traded in for my RS ...

    Apologies for the repeat images!.....definitely not cam cover. The leak(s) are coming from the head gasket area just inside the boss at the back RH side of the head (image 4) and from the RH front of the head next to the cam chain 'chest' (image 2)....I also checked the tightness of the 2 outrigger screws on the head.

    Triumph took my bike on the 11th march due to it finding false neutrals especially 4th5th6th I had these issues pretty much from 3 week of owning it , triumph factory have had it since to carry out tests, they still have it and never did tell me any findings, 2 week ago they offered me a brand new bike, I declined this due to that possibly having the same issues. I’ve spoke to quite a few RS owners recently and all have said they have issues at times with 456th gears, my advice take the thing back to dealer , this is a big issue with the RS and triumph aren’t willing to admit it just yet. Anyway Last week I was fully refunded. Thank go for that I will never own a triumph again .

    Not one issue with my RS so far (4k kms). MY19 so maybe they addressed some of those issues from MY18?

    But luck, sorry for you, mate. Hope everything turns well for you and Triumph gets you a satisfying solution very soon.

    With my new bike I don't have any trouble so far - gear shifting ist very smooth, too - 1.100 km on the clock.

    Just got back from a 1400 mile trip to France. Have oil burn stain on the exhaust link pipe and a oily film all over the R/H side of the rear wheel:(

    It's definitely worth checking the dip stick O-ring - here's where I posted my experience of it...almost exactly a year ago:

    https://www.thetriumphforum.com/threads/2018-speed-triple-rs-–-ownership-thread.13318/page-9#post-197413

    Edit: The link to the replacement 19mm ID x 3.0mm O-rings that I purchased is dead...but if you PM your address, I'll be happy to send you one, if yours turns out to look suspect :)

    Cheers Mr Triple
    My dealer has already replaced the dipstick o-ring and is talking to Triumph about possibly replacing the link pipe with the cooked on oil stains

    Hi I have speed rs 8 weeks old, 1554 miles. Last Sunday out for a ride doing about 60 overtaking a car nocked it up into top there was an awful grinding banging noise lots of revs and no drive. I stopped put it in to first let clutch out chain and sprocket spun with no drive. Got recovered, chose to take bike to dealers myself on Monday morning, bike stripped and parts ordered Monday Text to say bike ready Wednesday morning and also had a courtesy bike. Triumph West Yorkshire (Cobb and Jagger) and triumph could not have been more helpful.

    The cush drive plate that bolts to the wheel broke in to 3.

    Never in many years of Triumph ownership (with sssw) have I ever seen that happen!

    HI, anyone on here noticed a gearbox whine on their Speed triple 2018/19 model ?
    I was out the other day and noticed a a whining noise under light load mid revs
    in 3rd gear. Also there to a lesser degree in 1st and 5th but nothing in 2nd 4th or 6th ?
    Not loud, but I am concerned its early signs of something ? 7k miles on the bike.

    Not exactly, mine has a weird rattle/ buzz at similar revs, but this has no relation to the gear selected.

    Thanks, I guess I will just have to see if it gets worse.. Mine doesn't rattle but vibrates above 6k which I assume is normal.

    Hello All,
    Just thought I would share an issue I have had with the keyless system / immobiliser on my RS.

    Since it was new I was occasionally seeing an 'Immobiliser Fault' message on the TFT. The bike always started, and never let me down. Just for clarification, this is not the 'Key out of Range' message that anyone can generate easily by moving the key fob away from the bike whilst the ignition is on (obvious I know, but my dealer initially confused the two).

    Anyway, my fault was traced to a faulty immobiliser antenna, which was replaced under warranty. So far (touch wood) the error hasn't come back.
