I purchased a 2006 D675 on Sept 15th, 2012. I am the 2nd owner and it had less than 3500 miles at time of purchase. On Oct 13th recall work was done by a local authorized Triumph dealer. The items addressed were 1. Air intake duct bolt update, 2. Fuel pump relay update, 3. Regulator rectifier replacement and 4. Coolant flush (my tab). Mileage at this point is 3636 miles.
However, on Monday, Oct 22nd I was riding to work. While on the the highway I looked down at my gauges and notice the gauge cluster is blank, off, not working and the tachometer is stuck on 7k. I exit and pull up to a red light. Everything except the gauges seem to be working properly. I turn the ignition to off thinking I can turn it back on. It doesn't turn on. It doesnít respond to anything. Luckily I was only 1 1/2 blocks from my work so I push the bike there. The only thing that indicates life is an orange light on the gauge cluster. I check all the fuses. All are good. I check the battery and get it charged. It's good. Still nothing. The next day I get it towed to the same dealer that did the recall work. The bike at this point has less than 3800 miles.
To this day (Nov 7th) the dealer still has my bike. They don't know what the problem is and they say they've never encountered this before. They've spoken with Triumph and Triumph doesn't know what's going on either. The dealer says they 1) swapped/tested the ECU. It's good. 2) swapped/tested gauge cluster. It too is good. The previous owner installed an integrated tail light and integrated turn signals. I asked them to check the wiring for that as well as test the (new) R/R and check the stator. They can't however seem to isolate what is causing it to short. They're suggesting to either replace the entire wiring harness or methodically go through the existing wiring harness to find the culprit. I can only imagine what parts and labor will cost if I go either route.
The Triumph dealer who has my bike is not the dealer I purchased it from however, ironically they are however the dealer who sold this bike to the first owner.
I canít stop thinking this problem coincides too close from when the recall work was done. Does anyone have any suggestions?
