sir,there are 2 reason
1. please check bolts of small fuse connecter near the battery ,sometimes it get loose ,ectually that is main positive connecter to battery
2.please replug the rectifier-regulater cuplers ,otherwise you need to replace the regulater
When there is no charging system operational, the bike will run wih battery in total loss mode. When it gets to a certain point of discharge, the first indication is indeed as you saw, the intruments go blank. There is little power left at this point and need to get home asap!
Either the R/R (rectifier/regulator) and/or the stator is bad - both are unfortunately quite common failures on these bikes.
You can find a diagnosis guide that I personally authored at this site: http://www.triumphrat.net/speed-triple-forum/104504-charging-system-diagnostics-rectifier-regulator-upgrade.html
Follow those guidelines and you will be able to determine which or both is failed. Also is a recommendation for a retrofit/upgrade to a better component if you do need to replace the R/R.
tthe battery has run out of acid and cooked itself(thats the rotten egg smell)it needs to be replaced,but even more sinister is the reason it did it,it sounds like the alternater has fried itself and that is why the battery cooked,so your alternater needs repairing before you put a new battery in,or it will cook the new battery to
Your running off the battery until it dies. Check your chargng system. It should put out 13.0-14.5 volts. If not then the current will flow from what ever source has the most voltage. Thus, your dead battery. Try changing he voltage regulator and then check the stator next. Sometime stators can have burned section on them and reduce the voltage produced to the battery. Also check for really good connectin to the terminals. This can rob current and voltage by upt o 40%.
