Question about 1972 Triumph T 100 R

1 Answer

TORS question HELLO! First post to this forum..finally! I am the very proud new owner of a 2009 T100...sold my 69 Bonneville and replaced her with the new Bonne. Simply amazing what 40 years of technology can do, my new bike has a starter button and real brakes...AMAZING! The onlyother bike I have is a wonderful Royal Enfield Bullett...500cc's of thump! Here is my question...I perormed a baffelectomy a while ago and this did mae her sound a bit mre like a real bike, but still a wee bit to quiet, so I picked up on Ebay a very slightly used set of Triumph TOR I plan to install them today and understand that should have the EFI remapped at the dealer. MY nearest dealer is over 50 miles away, would I do any harm to the bike by installing the TORS and running them for a while BEFORE having the EFI reprogrammed? Will the EFI richen up the mixutre enough to prevent it from runing way to lean? I most likely will not be able to get to the dealer for a week or so which is around 200 mile of riding as is. What do ya think? Thanks!!

I think you'll be allright. When I put TORS on my bike, I found that I hardly needed any extra jetting at all. I put in slightly larger jets and I am now running fairly rich, so i would think the EFI can handle it. Give your dealer a call maybe.

What's this tiny red light that blinks when the engine is turned on? It's on Triumph bonneville t100 2012 USA model. Thanks!

Probably just lets you know you have the key in the ignition and it is switched on. However, take a look at some of these review videos.

I have a 2006 T100 Bonneville and one exhaust is getting far hotter than the other - any suggestions please?

The hot pipe is running a lean fuel / air mix. Chances are outside air is getting into the intake manifold by getting past the mounting clamps between the carb and the cylinder. A cracked rubber manifold, burned exhaust valve, loose spark plug or bad head gasket are other possibilitys. Is there any chance a previous owner has a smaller main jet in one carb than the other? Are the spark plugs both the same? Please rate my answer. Thanks!

Best way to break in a new T100

take it easy for the first 1000kms or so, try not to go past half throttle and try to avoid high revving.
