Well done. That is tempting.
However, my question is : what was this plastic elevation in the middle was designed for ?
I guess it was there in purpose. Wasn't it ?

Idle issues

Guys, help me out here. 5000+ miles on the XC and it has issues idling. The original recall was done on the bike prior to me buying it. I have the paperwork. It runs great but will not idle now most of the time. Is there a new tune out there for this machine. I am getting ready to board a plane so Any help guiding me to the right post will be great. Thanks in advance..

I'm going to assume, given your location, you ride in dusty conditions ? If so, I would look for posts in this thread (and others) around Stepper Motor (IIRC). In dusty conditions this get a little gummed up resulting in poor idle.

I thought the stepper motor just kept it fron starting? But I will read back through this thread.

You could well be right but I thought it also affected the idle.

I think Mercury is right, at least from what I remember reading.

On a side note..what a pain in the a$$ it is to remove the tank in order to check it!

If you have trouble starting & idling w/out throttle, then cycle through the stepper motor reset (key off, wait 30 seconds for the dail-up sound) until it idles. It may take 3 or 5 tries, but it should eventually reset back to normal idle. When it's idling right, you should be able to ride without any problems until you turn the bike off for 30 seconds again. Everytime the stepper tries to reset back to idle, then you have a chance it may not work proper. I did this for about 5000 miles & finally got a new stepper motor. So far 1300 miles including a 200 mile ride in the dust without any problems. I can't help but wonder if Triumph got a bad batch of stepper motors, or if the original tune corrupted them somehow.

I'm still on the original tune that the bike came with and I have had no issues - but to be fair I don't/haven't ridden in dusty conditions. Do you have the updated tune Rob ?

I got the updated tune the day it came out. At that time, mine only stalled twice (when I pulled the clutch not on take off). I have whatever tune was most recent back on 2-21-12.


Just to help out, this is a pic of the stepper motor. You can see it on the brake side between the motor & airbox.

That dealership is like an art gallery of the finest machiery available.

Love it... I rode up there on my plated Dirt bike...

No, it's definitely a D16RR.
