My Triumph Street Triple displayed the ECU malfunction light after a flat battery which has since been satisfactorily charged. How can I reset the ECU so my bike doesn't remain in limp home mo


You could try the 12 minute tune which I think is appl;icable to this model.This resets most issues.
Start the bike from cold...do not touch throttle then wait til fan comes on then time 12 minutes exactly then turn bike off.If this dont work go to a dealer so they can plug into the ECU and find out the cause..

Thinking of putting different cam in my 98 flhtcui 1338 ev 27 was what i think is that good one some one said a andrews mid range one as well is that the samething


The Andrews EV-27 is a good cam for mid to light weight bikes. In my opinion, it's good in the midrange but a bit weak in the low end. For your dresser, I'd go with a low end high torque cam. I like the V-Thunder cams by Competition Cams. The EVL3000 or the EVL3010 cam should work well with your heavy bike. Avoid "over camming" your bike. Check out their site. V-Thunder makes the best bolt in cam for a Shovelhead that I've ever installed. The SHV4000 or 4001, depending on year model of the engine, gives the old Shovels an Evo-like roll on power in high gear.

05 deuce, front end shakes, think its neck bearings? I put lots of grease in fitting, it took quite a bit, think it might have been dry. How do I change neck bearings?


There's a lot of things that I'd check before I started tearing into the steering head of the bike. Have you had your front wheel balanced and the bearings checked in it? Is the tire seated properly on the wheel? There's more to a front suspension system than merely changing the bearings out. Unless you've been using a pressure washer on the bike, odds are nothing is wrong with the bearings. I've restored many bikes built in the 60's and never found a bad set of steering head bearings and they didn't have grease fittings on them. The tension of the steering head bearings have a particular setting on them. Called the "Fall-Away" setting, it is how far the front end will turn before it "falls" all the way to the fork stops. At least the earlier bikes had this. Since I've never had to mess with the steering head of a bike as new as yours I can't tell you how to change the bearings. But, you can got to http://www.bikebandit.com and look up the suspension system on your bike to get an exploded view.

Look for "resetting the ECM" in the manual. I don't work on the ECM equipped bikes but I've heard guys talk about the procedure of turn the ignition switch on and off several times while pressing different buttons on the bike to "reset" the computer after a battery change. This is just something I've heard that you may find something about in the owner's manual. I do know that the security systems have something like this on them as well. That's why I don't work on them. I work on the early model bikes that the dealers will no longer work on. Shovelheads and Ironheads.

Clutch wont engage grinding noise


If your bike has a final belt drive, with the engine off, put the transmission in gear and try to roll the bike. If the bike rolls, you've probably got a busted belt or the splines in the front pulley are stripped out. You may even see a little oil drip out from behind the inner primary. You didn't say what year or model bike you have so this is just a guess.

I have a 2006 Harley Dyna, was wondering if front fork torque specs are the same as Sportster front fork specs? I have quite a gap between triple tree and goose neck...fork lock pin doesn't line up in...


You didn't say which Dyna series bike you have but I'm going to say that Sportster specs are not the same as for a Dyna. If you think you have a gap between your triple tree and the steering head of the bike, something may not be assembled correctly. I'd take to a shop or a dealer and have them check the front end.

Installing ape hangers and I have a turn signal wire kit extension. How do I remove the exsisting wires out of the clip in order to attach the extension wires


Well, you didn't say what year model bike you're working on but if the bike has the early connectors, you need a pair of special tools to "unpin" the plugs. If your bike is later than 1996, I think, it probably has Bosch type connectors. These things come apart but it's like one of those Chinese puzzles to me. I have gotten them apart but I have to figure each different one out. The service manual tells you how to get them apart. May be a site online that will tell you.

Good luck

Speed Triple fell at about 10 MPH on the right side and slightly bent the throttle handle bar at the tip. Its still driveable, but as i increase the throttle in any gear, it revs high but speed does not...


Put the bike up on blocks to roll wheels freely in neutral. do they turn freely? If not, check for stuck brakes, maybe rotors or pads. Then remove the plugs, clutch lever released, put in in a high gear and roll it around to see if this is rotating your pistons up and down. This tests clutch slippage. if you can roll the bike around. You pull the plugs so that the engine compression does not lock up the rear wheel. An engine that revs up like that and does not speed up the bike is usually either a sticking brake or a slipping clutch. Let me know what you find, and we'll narrow this down so you can get it fixed.

Changes in 2007


One thing to look for is the location of the 02 sensor. With the stock exhaust, if the 02 sensor is located near the right footpeg, it is an 05-06 and early 07 exhaust configuration. That is the easiest way to tell. You can also tell by VIN but I do not know the demarcation from one model to the next.
