Good to know it is obdII. I'd still like to know what the fault was for record keeping purposes. Doing a 450 mile loop today from Death Valley to Yosemite. I'll hit an auto parts store sometime this morning. I'll post back when I get the code. Haven't had three heat cycles yet. The bike doesn't cool much while stopped in the desert! Might get a third in Yosemite today during lunch depending on the exact requirements of a heat cycle. Is it three complete cycles or does it count as one after the bike cools from when the fault first happened?

What are the requirements for reading the code? Just follow the instructions in the reader? Ignition on, then plug in reader? Other way around? What does the manual say for the process?


Thanks

Guess you can forget the two-up touring though.
Actually I did a three day trip with the missus at the end of May and the bike did just great. I weight about 175lbs w/o gear and she weighs about 135 lbs w/o gear. The speeds are somewhat reduced of course otherwise I get pummeled in the back, but no handling issues. The bike didn't even sway on that trip, but that might be because I wasn't pushing as hard.

In the car biz we called them drive cycles. A drive cycle = starting the vehicle, driving it until the parameters/operating conditions are reached that conform to that particular OBDII test, and successful completion of the test. Usually two successful tests of a particular system would clear the code (and the light), but a historic code would remain in memory and could be retrieved with the scan tool.

An example of this would a gas cap left loose on a car. When the operating conditions are met for an EVAP system test (steady throttle for x seconds, coolant temp sensor reading operating temperature, etc.,) the ecm applies engine vacuum to the fuel system and watches the feedback from the pressure sensor. Since the gas cap is loose the system never holds a vacuum, the test fails, and a fault is stored. Some faults are "two trip" faults, meaning two failures of the test must occur to record a fault and turn on the check engine light, while more critical items can be a single fault failure. In this example, the owner figures out they left the gas cap loose the next time they stop for fuel, they properly tighten the gas cap, and after two successful completions of the EVAP test the light goes out and all is well.

If the T800 is indeed OBDII compliant the same criteria should apply concerning a fault causing a code to set, and successful completion of tests causing the light to go out. But there should still be a historic code. The nature of what it takes to set the code (1 trip or drive cycle versus 2) is dependent on the failure being detected (critical or not).

Hope that helps!

Parts currently on order. They will call me when they come in, and I will get it done as soon as they have an opening. Not something to put off, IMO.

Had mine done just last weekend at the 12K service. Along with a new centerstand and a waterpump hose.

Which hose and why the replacement - one of mine leaks a tiny little bit no matter how tight the clamp is.

Yes, just this past Saturday. I dropped my bike off for a few hours. I think it took them about an hour to do. Slightly higher shift effort but better engagement. Is seems like I felt my original shifter getting a bit sloppy. Anyway, I think its an improvement.

For those that don't know this was mainly for earlier bikes I believe.

This might have been the first time I've ever had to take any of my motorcycles anywhere to have work done.

SB 439 for VIN's 466334 thru 501587.

This is for a new shifter return spring. Triumph is not sending out letters & dealers act like they don't want to mess with this unless you have a problem. If you call them & let them know that you know, then they'll do the recall.

ABS model? If so maybe the sensor needs to be wiped off.
