Start with the basics, (****, Squeeze, Bang, Blow).
Check fuel is getting to cylinder.
Check Spark plugs by holding on cylinder head and cranking see if sparks.
check compression, should be approx same across all cylinders usually about 120-140 psi at a guess. I have had an older engine still running fine with 100 psi. (Workshop manula tells exact limits)
Check exhaust is clear some idiot could have blocked it for a laugh!
check air filter is fairly clean. Oil type can be cleaned paper type are disposable. I would initial just hoover it if its a paper one.
If you have a spark and fuel and compression and it still plays up check the ht leads are in good condition, even dirty plugs can arc to earth loosing the vital spark needed. Older coils do tend to break down particularly yamaha ones! I do not know where triumph source there parts but i know it is from various countries.
Hope this helps a bit

O7 rhino 660 runs good,then backfires and stalls.starts every crank,but will run short time then stalls.does not backfire everytime.seems like it runs longer when it sets couple of days.


I would overhaul the carby and check for corrosion in the main jet and other circuits
if it is a 2 stroke I would check the crank shaft seals as they may be hard and leaking mixture and running lean ( backfiring)

Why does my engine back fires sometimes on constant throttle and chek engine light is on?


It's time to run diagnostics. I presume that bike supports OBDII... get codes - they'll tell us what's wrong.

SOUNDS like a crank position sensor, though.

First of all. We have put 2 new starters on this car recently. We thought the first might have been a fluke. However we had the 2nd checked and it tested fine as did the battery and alternator. Problem is...


what do you mean by wont start?? engine cranks but wont run? engine wont crank? Is the anti-theft light flashing? is the car in park? did you put it in Neutral and try to crank it?

I have a 93 altima that will crank but will not start...about a couple months ago i went to my work and shut off my car. it was running fine when i shut it off.. when i came back out and started my car...


this year model is notorious for fuel related probs...check the remainder of the fuel system, injectors, and the fuel pressure regulator also verify that the fuel pump is actually running and getting the correct amount of power to the pump itself..... it may not be bad just not getting enough power
