    Those starting problems are reminding me the good old days of the carbed triples and their dreaded crankshaft failures!
    The more you have to use it, the sooner it will fail.

    Having a better suited battery should prove interesting here...

    No, different from the 1050 start issues with a poor battery, I’ve had 5x 1050 so know that issue.
    Different with the gen 4 1200 it spins over fast but seems to have to build up fuel pressure, after sitting overnight.
    Hopefully Triumph will sort these issues out soon as overall the bike is fantastic. :082:

    A friend of mine says they purposely want it to crank over several times to get oil flowing.  One would think if that’s the case they would say so.  Mine does it every single time cold, and never warm. 

    BTW, does anyone know why there is an on/off switch on the right side by the engine?  The manual says it’s there and to turn it off, but they don’t say why.  I have never turned mine off.

    Canadian bikes were suppose to have this RH shut-off switch, but I don't have it on mine. Probably the switch turns-off the dongle receiver?

    It is a US requirement, almost all other markets don't have one.

    I’ve never seen it in the U.S. on other bikes with keyless systems.  I still have no idea what it’s purpose is.

    Ya….No… My Tiger 800 didn’t, my Goldwing didn’t, my FJR didn’t, my Yamaha, Kawasaki, other Honda didn’t… No bike I’ve owned in the past 20 years cranks over like this, or dies when the clutch is pulled. But ‘Yay’ it’s a great bike otherwise! Between this and the BMW’s, Euro bikes are starting to lose their shine for me.

    I am assuming it’s a battery isolator to avoid fires ? Still compared to some electric vehicle fires I think we are safe
