Question about 2008 Triumph Triumph Bonneville
I am in Australia and have a 2001 Triumph Bonneville, when I have ridden it for about 40 kms and usually when I am on a freeway and riding at about 110kms per hour consistently it suddenly loses all power from both cylinders. I coast to the kerb and within 30 seconds to 1 minute it restarts and rides fine for about 1 km then it happens again. It only does it when hot, not when just riding in the suburbs between 60 and 80 kms per hour. Mechanic has replaced take up coil but problem still the same
I have the same problem, I talked to the Triumph dealer and he said it was the gas tank purge valve. It's between the carbs connected to the frame, it's hooked up to the gas tank vent pipe on the bottom of the tank. He said there was two issues and that this one was 9.5 out of 10 the solution. He said to just remove the purge vale and put a straight piece of plastic in place of it. The other solution which is more exspensive he said was the crank trigger sensor.
