Strange issue
« on: 10 July, 2020, 12:30:13 AM »
I will try to describe the strange issue with my 2016 TS as best as I can, hopefully someone may be able to shed a bit of light on the issue...

I've noticed on a few occasions now while accelerating hard in 3rd gear (I think it has only happened In third gear but I'm not entirely sure), as the bike reaches higher revs it feels like the chain has jumped on the sprocket (I'm sure the chain hasn't done this at all as its well lubricated and adjusted ect). This is the only way I can describe it really, last night I purposely accelerated hard in third gear and sure enough around 9000rpm it did it again?? It runs perfectly well the rest of the time and I'm sure it doesn't do this in any other gears (although I am going to experiment with other gears too). I am just praying/hoping this isn't a gearbox problem!!

I run the bike in sport mode all the time and I'm considering putting it into rain & road mode to see if it does it then too. It definitely feels more like a mechanical glitch as opposed to an electronic type glitch (such as the traction control kicking in unnecessarily).

Any advice/ideas what might be occurring here will be much appreciated??

Only thing that springs to mind is the TC kicking in, see any light flick on in the dash area?

Not rev limiter?

@Luddfooter,

I had the same issue with mine.
No TC light, but it abruptly cut the power for some reason and the revs weren't high enough to be the limiter.
Having a bad neck, it caused me a head ache every time it happened, as the bike violently stutters.
My dealer was aware of the problem, but no solution was offered by Triump at the time.

All the best,

Remo

But, could an error in the ecu cause the rev limiter to kick in a tad early?

Hi P2B,

it's possible.
It may be useful to ask the dealer if any firmware updates exist that solve this problem.
I sold mine last year, so I haven't followed the progress in that area anymore.
I know my TS16 got an update for the fact the engine stalled from time to time, but I'm not aware of any other updates.

All the best,

Remo

Thanks for this Remo, as you have mentioned, I have no TC light illuminating nor has it hit the rev limiter. I'll see if the dealer can shed any light on it.

Thanks everyone else too for their input.

It only happens in 3rd at 9K RPM?

Nothing with 1,2 or 4th?

Makes me wonder about the clutch slipping, possibly.

I cannot say for certain only in third at 9RPM, I'm still experimenting with the issue. It doesn't feel like a slipping clutch, its more like a sudden jolt like the chain has jumped on the sprocket (which as I've mentioned above isn't, it just feels like it is and seems to be the only way of describing how it feels).  :187: :087:
