The "service" advisor was less than helpful, and even suggested I ride home and bring the bike back next week when the Triumph tech had more time to look at it. I pointed out that it was very dangerous to ride in traffic with the bike in that condition. He also indicated that he had never heard of and stepper problem even though it has been posted on every Triumph forum I have read. Looks like I'm dead in the water for a while! I'll post the results of the diagnosis, and subsequent repairs....
Not trying to sound like a jerk but, since you have read about the problem you should know that if you do have the normal stepper motor problem you can easily fix it yourself in the solutions posted in those same forums. Maybe your problem is slightly different maybe it's not but it certainly seems like attempting the traditional fixes would be the normal first step rather than putting yourself at the mercy of someone else' schedule (and perhaps your $$$).
