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.
- Not being unrealistic at all - I am responsible for warranty at a
major OEM. We pay all our warranty - some claim we honor 100% more
warranty than our competitors.
I am not griping - just skeptical for the hearsay of folks here.
Triumph covered one of my coils - out of warranty. The other was a
year later and they did not. As I have said before, my bike is a
1996 and I have lost two coils in 30k. It is the only problem that
I have had with an otherwise wonderful bike, so I say continue to
say quit your griping and get over it.
