Instructions

  1. Electrical
    • 1 Remove the battery cover using the appropriate tool from the Triumph tool kit. Connect the red and black voltage meter clips to the positive and negative battery posts. Red is always positive. Black is negative and ground.
    • 2 Switch the voltage meter to 12 volts and check the reading. A fully charged battery will put out 12 to 14 volts. A reading of less than 12 volts indicates the battery must be charged. Batteries that have been inactive for long periods of time respond best to a slow, overnight charge. Remove the meter clips and charge the battery, if necessary, before proceeding.
    • 3 Refer to the workshop manual and locate the ignition coil. Connect the red and black meter clips to the positive and negative terminals on the coil. Switch the voltage meter to 12 volts and note the reading. Typical ignition coil resistance is 0.5 to 1.5 ohms, or about one volt. A lack of resistance indicates the coil must be replaced.
    • 4 Connect the red meter clip to the gray wire terminal on the back of the ignition switch. Connect the black clip to the head of a nearby bolt as ground. Turn the ignition switch to the "On" position and note the meter reading. A reading of less than 12 volts indicates a problem with the ignition switch.
    Fuel System
    • 5 Close the fuel petcock using the selector lever. Depending on the year and model of the motorcycle, the petcock is located at the underside, or at one side of the gas tank. Trace the path of the fuel line from the petcock to the carburetor or the fuel pump.
    • 6 Remove the clamp where the fuel line connects to the carburetor or fuel pump using the appropriate tool. Position a glass jar under the connection. Pull the fuel line off and direct the end of the line into the jar.
    • 7 Open the petcock and observe the flow of fuel into the jar. A lack of a consistent fuel-flow suggests a clogged petcock or clogged in-line fuel filter. A consistent flow of fuel indicates a problem with the carburetor. Proceed to the final steps to troubleshoot a fuel pump.
    • 8 Close the fuel petcock. Reconnect the fuel line from the gas tank to the fuel pump and tighten the clamp. Remove the clamp that secures the fuel line at the output connection on opposite side of the pump. Hold the glass jar under the connection and pull the output line off the fuel pump.
    • 9 Open the fuel petcock. Turn the ignition switch to the "On" position. A lack of fuel flow from the fuel pump output line indicates that the electrical fuse is bad, or the pump must be replaced.
      Turn the ignition switch to the "Off" position and close the fuel petcock. Refer to the workshop manual for carburetor information, fuse replacement and fuel pump information.

Currently own a triumph speed four 06 tornado red was involved in a minor accident. cut up but car nd had to ditch me and the bike in a mounted ditch. bike went upside down and landed in a hedge nearby....


Hi, Whwarrenhugh Triumph's are pretty tough and just because it landed upside down is no reason to pull the top end. Try bleeding the cooling system of air that traveled to places it was not welcomed while the bike was on it's back, then retrieve the generated fault code and go from there.

Triumph speed four temperature goes up way over 100 within minutes of starting


sound to me like there is no water in the system or is running on waterand no coolant mix, drain your system down and replace the coolant with new to the correct mix water to cooland ratio, if this doesnt work then the chances is its the colant diaphram not opening to let coolant round your system
