I would start by checking for kinks in the vacuum hose. The situation you describe would usually result in a low vacuum situation and if the hose is kinked, this could lead to the problem you describe. There could be a problem with the tap itself and a good place to look for more info is at www.triumphrat.net, the Triumph owner's forum.

My bike turns over perfectly and runs fine but when the engine is hot after a decent ride the bike will not restart after switching it off it's like the kill switch is off starts fine after about hour


Hi, Sean and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enrichner.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. A severely discharged or damaged battery, you need 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
13. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
14. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
15. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
16. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
17. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
18. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
19. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
20. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
21. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.
22. Check for engine trouble codes.

Just got a trophy 3. dont know what position is which on the fuel tap? no markings.


Usually the fuel valve is this
Straight Down = ON
Straight Up = RESERVE
Horizontal/Across = OFF
There may be some difference with the manufacturers, or with custom fuel valves (chrome), also, fuel injected bikes usually do not have reserve or reserve position on fuel valve. If you have fuel injected bike, they do not like to be run out of gas, keep the gas level up.

Fuel starvation???


Hi, Ghorner558 the carburetors and fuel have to vent in order for your fuel system to function properly for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere zero $ you can download another one.

Fuel starving at cruising speed 100kmph


it sounds like you guessed right,the fuel tap is not correct for that bike,i had one in then shop the other day and it is two pipes coming off the fuel tap 1 to each pair of carbs,by changing to a single pipe of the same diameter you are effectively cutting your fuel supply in half and every "t" fitting that goes in the line restricts it further...go back to the standard tap fitting and get rid of all the "t" fittings and your problem should go away
