    Seems my EXBV (noise control in exhaust) Valve dosent work anymore, not bad going for 26 hours and 102 of my own miles on a bike really!

    Sometimes it opens, other times it dosent and i get the ECU light come on!

    Very weird.

    Well - its going in on friday for investigation and 500 mile service (up to 220 miles in day and a half lol!)
  4. It took 7000 miles and 2.5 years for my to go. The ECU of course came on. I went onto a 675 Forum (America) where it appears this problem is nothing new. I wrote to Triumph complaining that I thought a recall might be in order due to the number of whinges going on online, but they denied a problem existed.(You dont seem to get much sympathy from Triumph when you write to them as I have written a couple of times) So I booked my bike in for a service, and was told that in order to "foster good customer relations" the fault would be repaired under warranty (even though I was 6 months out) Now doesnt that tell you something? Apparently they had to have new part completely re-manufactured and will give you the new version, which I am told is much improved. Hope that helps. Dont know if anybody else out there has had it replaced FOC out of warranty? :)

    Had mine done FOC, Feb this year. 11 months out of warranty, and 9 months after I'd bought the bike. Having a FTSH probably helped.

    The light came and went after a few months of ownership, but then stayed on continuously.

    New design of headers were fitted, so Triumph have recognised that there is an issue. Also advised that spraying WD-40 behind the cover, if the bike was going to be laid up for a while, wouldn't do any harm.

    It was supposed to take an hour, but ended up taking nearer three due to a seized exhaust stud. Glad I wasn't paying.

    No problems since.
