Engine service light
« on: February 18, 2019, 06:41:12 PM »
My 2015 800XR engine service light has come on. Would this happen if the 12000 mile service in 100 miles.

The light comes on with the ignition prior to the service being due but goes off again after a second or two. This is a warning that service is due. After the service is due and if the light has not been reset then the light stays on to annoy you into taking the bike to a Triumph dealer and arranging a second mortgage to get the bike back after they have waved their greasy hands over it.

.... but being a 2015 and well out of warranty help is at hand ... a suitable lead and free 'Tigertool' software (downloadable from forum) can reset the service light and you can ignore, DIY or find cheaper alternative servicing (like Muddysump). :028:
