Question about 2001 Triumph Trophy 900
I'm new posting here so ...sorry...but I'm at my wits end!!! 1995 trophy 900- starts easily (full choke), backfires through pipes (coughing), revs alright but only when the choke is full on and its still coughing...no matter the RPM its coughing! The bike first started stalling at dead stops, then low rpm, than cough, cough, HACK!! Here is what I have done... carbs cleaned, new plugs, new gas (my 1st thought...bike had sat a while!?!? Yes I checked the vacuum line not once but 3 times (I am tired of taking the tank off) YES I checked to see if the petcock worked... gas runs out on PRI not on run or res. I tried running a ferris wheel over a dung heap...nothing seems to be working!!?!?!?!? Any thoughts are welcome, Thanks!!!
I think you would be better of checking the ignition pick-up located on the right side engine cover. you may want consider searching for info on the ignition pickup, as apparently it is a weak link on these engines. That was the first thing i repalced when i got got mine as it had sat for a while.

You might try replacing the valve stem seals, especially if one or both of the exhausts is smoking and / or has developed a hole since the problem first manifested. In extreme cases of wear this might also involve replacing the valves & stems themselves and / or having the valves seats re-cut. If the bike is burning oil at a rate of knots this is likely the problem. I have a similar problem with my 900 Trophy & I'm convinced that's the source of it, although I've yet to remedy it.
