If it is backfiring on deacceleration you have a fuel mixture problem and need to "sync" the carbs.
Sync Pro carb tuner works well. This is a precise four channel vacuum indicator designed specifically for intake synchronization of engines with multiple carburetors or throttle bodies.
Also, if you have not done so, check your plug wires for defects and resistors, if your wires have them.
Good luck, hope this helps.

New spark plugs turn black after going twenty miles


Hi
Make sure the air filter is clean (& not over oiled if sponge type)
Make sure that the pilot screws on #1 & #3 are 2 turns out and #2 is 2.25 turns out
Try turning 1/8 of a turn at a time
Also change to a softer plug - NGK DPR7EA-9 or equivalent as these stay hotter to burn more carbon off

Hi the battery is flat on my speed triple its


hi might be able to help,if the bike has been stood for a while and the battery is flat,you will need to either slow charge the battery(if it will accept a charge) or replace it,jumping the battery will only give the battery a surface charge and will not be adequate to run all of your electronics effectively,this may be why the engine management light is staying in,hope this helps..cheers

Hi having problems with the speedo on my 2002 Triumph Daytona 955i the speedo dos'nt work at all sometimes and when it does its way out, wondering if anyone has any ideas. Cheers


This is a common problem with the Daytona's 2002+. Typically its the charging system and if the battery level gets below 12v the instrument panel will not function properly (LED display will read or flash something other than what is normal). Recommend charging the battery and checking the voltage @ the battery while running. If voltage drops as RPM increase: Replace reg/rect. The Stator my also go bad too. Too T/S (remove tail section disconnect the 3 wire connector coming from the stator and pin check a/c voltage across two pins at a time. check condition of connector and wires, if it feels stiff and brittle replace wire loom and check 3 pin connector under the fuel tank. If still bad, should be Approx 45v a/c @ idle, replace stator OR send it out for a re-wind. It's cheaper more durable and you get a 1 year warranty. I recommend Custom re-wind for this.

Buyinf question/maintance costs


All bikes are expensive to service. The Legend is easy to work on so buy a Haynes manual and order OEM parts from dealers or Bike Bandit. You might have an ignition coil or fork seal to go bad. I've had my Legend for 9 years and have had one of each. Every 2 years change the hydraulic fluid for the brakes and clutch. If you use fully synthetic oil in the engine it will last 6,000 miles or 1 year as will the oil filter. Replacing spark plugs is difficult but they last a long, long time. Valves are shim type and rarely need to be reshimmed. If you replace the front sprocket you will need a new gasket for the sprocket cover. Trust me on that. Good luck and ride safe.
