Turn the bars to the right & have a look behind the black cowl behind the headlights that the fly screen bolts to the top off.
The hose from the sensor runs down the edge here & terminates above the bottom triple clamp - follow this up & check if it's kinked/pinched anywhere.
I had the same thing with mine & was able to compare that with a friends R3 bought at the same time.
Turned out that the rubber hose leading to the temp sensor was kinked & restricting airflow. I just rerouted & now it's reading within 0.5'C of the other R3.
I'm happy to try other tyres but I prefer to have front & rear matched.
Might try the 888's next as I've just about worn out my second set of Cobras at 15,000km.
I really wish Michelin made the Road 6 in these sizes.
Sorry to hear about the grief your having.
I've also experienced the most amount of "character" from my 1st ever non Japanese bike but thankfully, both the Dealer & Triumph here have been absolutely on point sorting everything quickly & without a fuss.
Yep, apparently this bike is too heavy to move around "properly", the tyres are too wide so it won't tip into corners & will just tram line into the first tree, you can't tour on it because the tank is too small to cross a continent in one go, there's no luggage options for 20+ days of stuff &...
Yes, have compared to other bikes including another 3R.
Sensor is probably ok, the tube bringing air to it could be the problem.
Engine temp is unlikely to be affecting it, especially when on the move.

Mine was always about 5'C warmer than actual & that of my friends R3 - bugged the hell out of me.
The ambient temp sensor is a stand alone one (i.e. separate to that used by the engine management) and is located under the front cover with a rubber tube routed down behind the LHS fork. The tube...
There was Poll thread awhile ago about the cracked screens - IIRC, they were all from Oz models.
Mine has been replaced under warranty and a friend is awaiting his 2nd screen replacement again now.
btw, it's a full gauge replacement and software reload.
P.S. when the bezel fell off, can you...
Have wondered about something similar for awhile now - will be following this with interest.
Seems silly that a rack/sissy bar can't be added/removed simply from the top (once removing those silver trim pieces). Triumph for whatever reason decided that bolting it on from underneath after...
