Question about 2006 Triumph Bonneville T100
When my bike is used in realy hot weather i get a heavy rattle now and then. it seems to be from the top end. Have only done 4,300 klm
Pinking is usually a sign of a low octane fuel, altitude or high temps that can sometimes be lessened by retarding the ignition timing a few degrees i.e. the plug sparks when the piston is closer to TDC. This is not always easily possible on modern bikes with the ignition advance/****** controlled by an ignitor box rather than a mechanical points type set-up.
Severe pinking for long periods can & will burn a hole through the piston crown. If a higher grade fuel is unavailable, try finding some sort of octane booster to add to the fuel (off road shop?).
