    Hi everyone
    Some updates are due..
    It's been almost one month and around 1000km since I got the bike after the service done and it seems OK.
    None of the stall or cutting so far.
    Hope that it remains that way.
    Safe roads to everyone

    Yesterday my engine cutted off again. I was in tense situation and I didn't saw the RPM drop. After i started again no problem appeared for rest if the drive and all looked normal. My first problem was fixed in summer with 16000km and now I have 26000km. I hope it was just a fluke not related to my previous problem and that I don't need to charge these parts every 10000km. 😅

    Itís been about one month and 1,000 miles since I had the service done to replace the MAP sensor, hose, and restrictor valve. In that time, I havenít had any stalls. If it recurs, Iíll report back to this thread, but Iím hoping that wonít be the case!

    Good luck to all of you dealing with this annoying problem!

    I havenít collected my bike yet (Tuesday is the day) and I bet my dealership has never heard of this issue. Kinda reminds me of my MGF which had a head gasket failure at 3000 miles and MG Rover were denying that anything was wrong. Eventually they changed the design on all the K series 1800cc engines across Range Rovers, MGs and everything. I was a member of an MGF forum who had a hall of shame with hundreds of members problems logged on a database, some members more than once  :005:

    Following replacement of the sensor,pipe, etcÖ My bike then developed an additional issue after a further 1500miles! The engine management lamp lit, and bike began stalling again. Following a further trip to the dealership, the engine required stripping and rebuilding due to 2 valves not bedding-in sufficiently! A further 5 weeks on the bench!

    Enough is enough, traded in and bought new Kawasaki Z900Ö All the best 660 owners, hope your bikes are better built than mine!Ö 😞

    I hope you got a good trade in price. I test ride the Z900RS and loved it but couldnít stretch to £11500 for a toy. Great motor youíll love it.

    Update to bike dying. After bringing in the bike for a second time on March 11 I was able to retrieve it yesterday, May 25th. Itís been in the shop over the 2 times more than itís been in my garage. Once again itís been fixed. Only put 50 miles on it and we will see if it stays fixed. If it happens again it will fall under the California motorcycle lemon law.

    Iíve had mine back a couple of weeks now and no problems so far, it is going back to the dealer but waiting on Triumph getting the sensor.
    But now I have another problem, Iíve noticed at the tail end of my seat there is a patch that has lost its colour.
    Itís one thing after another!😞

    Hello dear Trident riders,

    I created an account to write here my experience.

    I had the same issues like you guys, my milage is around 5000km and the first time it happened on the weekend.
    I driving home after a long ride (2 hours) then I was in the 3rd gear around 5K Rpm pull the clutch...starting to break and the engine dies off.

    I thought maybe I pressed the Kill-Switch because this was very surprising and I could have accidentally done this (very unlikely to get there with my hand, but an option to explain this)

    Few days later, after a longer ride, the same thing happened and I knew this is not my fault at all.
    I started to gather information and thank to you all guys for providing so much details on your problems and possible solutions.

    On the next day I called my dealer and they said I can come around.
    They said, this is very unusual and they will test the bike and try to replicate the issue and give me feedback.
    If they found something they will repair it for free, if not I need to pay for the checkup.

    The next day I got a call and they said:

    We found and issue with the ECU software and need to reset the adaptation.
    The adaption learn from your riding and changes the ratio of of air and gas.
    When I get to the 3rd gear 5k Rpm and press the brakes the engine get the wrong data from the software and dies of.

    I read in this forum before that this not solved the issue for some of you.

    I Keep you up to date how the bike is performing.

    PS: Sorry for my English
