Classic storage problem is moisture entering, coalescing, condensing in petrol and in electrical circuits what you' v done is right but try WD40 on low & high tension side of ignition and a dose of easy start, once running give a good run and store with cling film over open ports with a acumen type charger left on.

I don't mean to cop out, but I always recommend buying a service manual from say amazon for $15-30 bucks. It's the best money you'll ever spend, lays everything out nice and neat and will keep this awesome ride on the road for years to come.

Want to lower my trident.

This is a tall order. Everything about is fine tuned to be the bike youj see. If you change anything, you are really changing everything. If it doesnt fit you, I suggest you look for a bike that is a better fit. Of course, the triumps you have is quite a bike ... itis tall. You might want to consider a Honda Aero or a similar HD, Yamana or Suzuki. I like my Aero.

Hi, Alan always check fuel flow first to isolate the problem area otherwise the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.

4. Fuel valve/petcock not in the on or reserve position.
5. Vacuum line to fuel valve cracked, broken, pinched, or missing
6. Fuel valve/petcock clogged or diaphragm cracked, cut or torn
7. Fuel line from the fuel valve to the carburetor or fuel pump clogged, cracked, pinched, bent, broken, or missing.
8. Fuel pump not working

Be sure the battery took full charge. Sounds like a crook battery. If this is good look towards the solinoid for the starter motor. It should have a fuse, you may have tripped.

Trident 900 - No Acceleration

The only times my 'dent had no acceleration, it wasn't firing on all 3. Easy check: start the bike, let it idle for a couple minutes, spray water from a spray bottle on each header. Chances are, there'll be a cold header from a cylinder not firing due to a bad coil.
