Question about 2005 Triumph Speed triple
I parked it in the shed one saterday and it was finewhen i went to start it one week later no joy. So i pulled the plugs out cleand them and made sure it was sparking ok on checking the compression no1cyl was at1100kpa no2at 550kpa no3 at350kpa i have had no problems or dificalty in starting prior to this the bike is a 05 triumph speed triple with 8000mls and one lady driver
Offhand, the only and remotely possible explanation for the extraordinary disparity in the compression is when the bike was driven long and hard, parked, engine switch off without allowing for slow cool down with engine running and/or the right side was with doused with water.
Of course, if your posted readings would be confirmed, then the engine has to be worked on, a major overhaul. Perhaps it would be to your advantage if you can have a second opinion and/or a second compression test.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
