I was aware of some of those but it seems that the CTT was an issue addressed with an upgraded part. The original wore but it was a wear item to begin with. The "spider bite" was the biggie as it affected actual people in actual numbers. Seems everything else was very low % of actual bikes; worth being aware of but not in high numbers.

Really? I'm aware of Gen 2's of 1 or 2 years have a ground joint (spider) problem that was resolved by yahama (warranty recall?). What were the others?

Yes, I probably went overboard on the "all kinds" but they did have IMO too many electrical problems on what is otherwise an extremely reliable machine.  It is what I would call a minor issue relatively speaking unless your the guy sitting on the side of the road trying to get home.   Lets go to the design and eventual recall of the ignition switch.  At least that one could be fixed in the field if you knew how.    Running way too much current through the ignition switch would burn them out.  Piss poor design.  Then there were the ECU issues on '07's.  Those were more like a PITA, not lethal.  What makes you think the ground spider issue was solved?   Yamaha did a GW Bush and declared a victory on that one.  The Gen III's still got the same setup that caused them.  Collecting multiple grounds like Yamaha does in its harness is far from a good design.  That's still a topic of discussion with people with some electrical background.

Well, I think it's fixed. It turns out that the Trophy didn't have the newest firmware update installed. They applied it two weeks ago, and it's been working ever since.

So now that the minor teething problems appear to be fixed, everything is working fine, and I just rolled over 1300 miles since I got it on 3 Jan.

Good for you. Always like to hear of a happy ending to a potentially frustrating mechanical/electrical issue.

Dontcha just love electronics  Lol  They are live by the sword, die by the sword stuff.  I had my Tiger 1050 blink out at the STN National in Lewisburg a few years back.  A short in my tail light knocked out a fuse, intermittently left me stranded in the middle of nowhere.  But when all is said and done, I'll take programmable  ECU's and the electronics any day.
