Scot, I appreciate your defense of Triumph in this matter but even
the limited number of responses to this issue indicates that there is
clearly a problem with the Triumph ignition coils.
The tally of ignition coil failures thus far reported:
Scott Dail : 2
"jcatbert45" : 3 (simultaneous)
"randytbird" : 1
Disregarding the apocryphal "I know somebody... " reports, that's
three bikes with coil failures out of 483 users on this site or about
0.62% reported thus far. That 0.6% may not sound like much, but when
you include the apocryphal reports it's well over 1% and the number
of failures NOT reported here (due to user inactivity) would push
that percentage much higher.
Regardless, the lowest figure of 0.6% is an excessively high failure
rate for a single component in a system in modern manufacturing.
