Last weekend while having a little squirt on the bike, hit 12,000 rpm's (still 2,500 below redline), lots of white smoke, a big bang and then nothing. Luckily the clutch was pulled in, brakes on and stopped before all the oil covered the back wheel. Lo and behold, a saucer size hole in the right hand side of the engine. Move forward one week and it seems that a circlip (?) had come off the starter clutch and disintergrated the engine. At least it is all under warranty as I only had 2,800 kms on this bike. Now the wait to find out what Triumph are going to do about this situation. Just when I was enjoying the bike after being run in, now it looks like I will have to run-in another engine.
