Skip straight to Neuteral.
« on: June 14, 2018, 09:35:41 PM »
So finally getting to actually ride this year and I have noticed that the bike is doing something I find pretty odd. I will be going 65mph and decide to pass and will down shift going from 6th to 5th. The transmission will jump to N its not all of the time but it happens at all speeds and periodically. Has anyone had this issue? I recently put a new shift lever on and its tight and not slipping.

I figured it was something like that. The bike is a 15 and only has 3200 miles on the odo........ now I am worried

Does it only happen on a down shift from 6th to 5th? If your in 5th and open it up does it happen? Can you hear a "pop" when it happens?

It only happens on down shifts. Full clutch down shift goes to N have to flip fast though gears to get to required gear. Pretty unnerving to be honest. I have seen the shifting incorrectly comments in the other forums and I have been riding my entire life and can assure you that I know how to shift. The gearbox is clunky though.

Does the neutral light come on? That would be a true neutral.

If it is reproducible, take it to a Triumph dealer and have them road test it. If they can reproduce, get the dealer to contact Triumph and request a goodwill warranty for the problem. At 3200 miles, there is no way that any rider or maintenance issue could cause this. It is a factory defect that has been there since new.

AFAIR, 6th to N is a new one!
I wonder if this gearbox is going to do every possible malfunction )c8

As Captain suggested, the dealer should ask (firmly) to mothership a goodwill gesture. On my '14, I had the parts (€1,500] paid by Triumph and I paid only the labor (€300).

I get it on occasion, from 2nd to 1st and sometimes going back up, but never from 3rd or higher


I'll never be old enough to know better !
