All you need to do is check that your 08 has had its Reg -Rec has been changed by a Triumph dealer on the recall a number of years ago. You can check this on line I think. If not, get it booked in at a dealer of your choice for a free exchange  :028:

I have 2 mates with 08s and no problems but there are obviously some out there.

My 3 bits of advice.
Keep oil level correct as it cools the stator
Buy a charge led available on ebay
Crimp the wires from stator.  Theres a plug under the tank that if it gets corroded will melt and cause issues.   Simply hardwired it will be out of the equation.  Easy to reterminate if replaced.   Dont use preinsulated terminals though.  Bare folded crimp and heatshrink.

Even if it has the new reg/rect get a small digital voltmeter on it and save yourself ever getting stuck with battery problems.

The charging led can be mounted on the dashboard and will flash if it stops charging.  Search on Evilbay.

If my battery is low my tracker sends me a text message. I ignored it the first time it happened. I won't ignore it ever again. It tells the truth  :003:

But then you have to remove the seat to plug it in everytime you want to check, and then remove it after. Seems a bit overkill when you can have a small digital voltmeter fitted permanently for a couple of quid.
