Idling: let triumph do the work!
WOuldn't it be an idea then to send an e-mail to all forum members, ask everyone if they have idling problems, collect the vehicle id numbers, names, addresses and mods, of owners that have this problem and send that as a group? Then you have numbers to proof we are right and they are not. Besides, instead of us trying to solve it, let triumph do. THey must be able to trace all parts used for each motorcycle. I wouldn't be surprised if something stupid as a faulty or undersized gasket would be the cause...
I don't know when a motorcycle manufacturer will call a problem a production fault, but I think they want to see a large number/percentage of total production. Thusfar all reports are sporadic, concluding from the different forums 20 bike owners state they have idling problems. But, if I read their posts, it should be many more.
The strenght of these forums for one thing is that we can reach rocket owners all over the world and thus draw statistical significant conclusions and make a point to Triumph. I don't know how many rockets have been produced thus far, but if a percentage has this problem, Triumph will have to make work of this issue.
Thusfar I'm happy not to have noticed this idling problem (my bike was produced somewhere 2004), and I hope I won't run into it.
But if I do, I want a good solution for it!
Perhaps we have some lawyers in our midst who can write a magnificent intro letter stating the hazards of this problem, and who will most certainly be able to convince Triumph to do something about it. But, we need numbers... Polls won't help I'm afraid. Only people with those problems will visit this part of the forum. Also, we should engage other triumph forums in this problem.
In my humble opinion, that's the way to go...
