2020 Triumph Rocket 3R
Anymore stalling? My bike did it for the first time today. I go in for service and mid pegs Thursday. I came off the freeway and was rolling to a stop at about 05 mph with the clutch pulled in and it shut down. I quickly started back up but wasn't expecting it to die on me. Very random. Has anyone had positive luck with the new download or are problems still occurring. No fun having your bike shut down. I'm a tad nervous on tight U-turns as I don't want to end up on my ass. Anyone have the problem rectified?
I'm still having same problem as you describe...very random

I've only stalled by being lazy on the throttle at a light, or not paying attention while taking off. I'm averaging 1 stall per 1k miles, so far lol. At 3k miles on the bike.
Be a bit heavier on the throttle.
Sadly it has nothing to do with the throttle. It has to do with the engine dying with the clutch pulled in rolling to a stop with no throttle. I can't figure out why it does this. It's something Triumph must address. Triumph may be trying to figure it out but I want it documented in case of and injury collision due to the bike dying.

My 3R is going in for 1 year service next month and I've made them aware of the issue. I'll post if the problem recurs after the service.
Mighty Mouse...please do the same to compare notes. Hopefully an ECU update will remedy the problem but I'm not optimistic. When they had the bike for the 600 mile service months ago and I told them about the stalling problem and they said they contacted the regional service rep and they were told Triumph was unaware of such an issue even though there were other reports of the same issue by other owners posted on this site. At that time they said there was a new "update" installed at service but the issue remained.
Now they tell me there is yet another update to be installed but they (dealer) don't know exactly what it does so it's hard to be optimistic.
I've had this random issue since day 1 and now have approx. 2300 miles.

That sucks. I'm just around 3.5k miles on mine and I'm not having that issue and hopefully never do. I had 3k miles on it prior to having an ECU tune applied, still no issues.

My 05 stalled on and off the 5 years I had it. Triumph had it for 7 months (or maybe more I can't recall) and they actually made it run worse. When they gave it back to me running like crap they said "Don't worry, we won't charge you." I said "Do you really think I was going to pay you to not fix my Rocket?" I still had a hard on for a new Rocket so I bought the 2014 and it ran 'perfect' and even better after the dyno and PC5. I had a bad flashback when the 2020 stalled. I thought "Oh sh**, not again." We will see what they come up with on the new map on Thursday and hopefully that will be it. I don't know if the other riders on here that had stalling issues are still having them or if they were remedied. On my heated grips the spanner light came on with the low battery sign while on the freeway at 70 mph in 5th gear. The low battery light should not have come on over the heated grips icon. I love the bike and I haven't had the chance yet to romp on it as I don't want them to use that against me before the first 600 miles service (Thursday). The mechanic at Triumph stated when checked on their mapping they can tell the date, time and speed when the low battery light came on. This may be why a member on here couldn't get Triumph to cover his trans issue. They seem to be able to hold that against you for warranty issues I would think. Maybe I'm reading too much into it. I'll let you guys know how it turns out.:thumbsup:

I read your post again
If true about the right bar switch then that would be trouble with the drive by wire system. A very complicated system. I would say yours would be the first i have heard of and should have its own thread.
The 2020 is the first year to have this system so hopefully they will be able to fix it for u.
I got my bike back last week after they replaced the switchgear on the right handlebar.
I rode the bike 3 times with no issues, so I'm cautiously optimistic that it's fixed.
The service mgr said the lightest touch on the starter switch was killing the engine.

well i am glad they got it fixed
but there explanation don't hold water be cause (even on the old rockets if it is running u can press the starter button and it will not do a thing and if the ecu failed to control it all that would happen would be a loud starter noise.
they have a fancy tps on the bar and also a fancy one on the motor that works the throttle plates. or a least that is the way the late vehicles work.
i have been waiting to see how many of these fail. hopefully not to many.
