Incidently, my bike is a "staller. But yesterday, after a 250 mile ride, with a few stops where I turned the engine off (fuel, and lunch) and stops for red lights, photographs, etc. with the engine on, the bike did not stall once. It now has close to 3,000 miles.

My bike used to stall ONLY hen the engine was warm (normal operating temperature), after an idling period, or after I turned the engine off (for fuel, or for a photo op, or something like that) and turned it back on in about 5-10 minutes. It always stalled on the "blip the throttle" scenario.

Only one time it stalled in between gears (going from 2 to 1, and I was blipping the throttle at that time), and only one time it had that stall where the engine really did not want to run and was difficult to re-start. The last two scenarios, I repeat, occurred only once each in the 3,000 miles.

I have refused to get my bike to the dealers until I hear in official version from Triumph. But for now, based on yesterday's ride, I will consider it solved.

I always use 92 octane (American calculation method).

Whenever we are riding, we are an ambassador to our sport

I'd rather be riding!
