    Tiger 800 Xrx 2018. I am interested to hear if anyone else has had a problem with the now sealed LED daytime running light DRL. Triumph changed over from a replaceable bulb to the sealed DRL in 2018. If ever a bulb failed previously it was simple to change. If the new DRL unit fails the whole damn headlight unit has to be replaced at a parts only cost of £350 upwards. Mine has failed after only 7,800 miles and 27 months on the road during which I've only probably used it in DRL mode maybe 100 Hrs max. I asked Triumph HQ technical team to provide me with the tech spec including lumen and longevity test results and all I got back was 'It is a fact of life that man made components can fail...and you've been just unlucky'. And they are supposed to be the tech team.

    Comments appreciated
