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!

2006 Triumph Bonneville T100 leaky head gasket

For the price you have been quoted, it may be that it just requires to be re-torqued to pull up the leak. Or even just a resealing of the cam/valve gear covers. Changing the head gasket would be somewhat more work/expense. This is a fairly easy task to accomplish if you have some spanner experience, a torque pattern to follow, and the tools to do it. If you have no tools, then it could cost you $200 for a cheap torque wrench, socket set, other tools you will need.
Any time you start tearing down a motorcycle, good idea to go get yourself should get yourself a workshop manual(click here for a Haynes $42.95)to start. This is where you can get knowledge on how to strip down the bike to the point you can do it, and also correct sequence / procedure for torquing the head to spec. You would need to pull the tank, seat, and so on, good experience if you wanna get your fingers dirty. Get into it if you are game.

I'm putting on a trickle charger - is it a one amp

The 1 amp and 2 amp on your charger only for 1amp a slower charge and the 2amp is a little faster charge . A charge on a battery works better the slower you charge them,Hope this helps you

My 2006 Triumph America has a problem starting up. The engine starts but cuts out after approx 6-7 secs and will not then re-start for an hour or so. I have checked the battery and fuel flow and found no...

I have a friend that has a 2006 Triumph America and the same thing happened to him. Started running on one cylinder and then just refused to start. I did a check on everything and found that the CDI went bad. This is mounted under the fuel tank along the back bone and is about 3 inch square box.
They mounted them with a type of plastic rivet and would vibrated on the mount and cause something inside to break. When you replace it mount it solid and use a piece of rubber between the mounting plate and the CDI.
