Question about 2000 Triumph TT 600

1 Answer

I changed my valve cover gasket on my 2000 Triumph TT600. When I went to put it back together, stupid me, I didn't mark what coil came from what cylinder. I looked at my manual, but that information isn't listed, some service manual huh? Can someone help me, I've looked online, tried, cant find it anywhere. HELP!

    There are no numbers, I did trace my wires in the wiring harness schematic. I paired up my number one coil with my number one injector, number two with number two, and so on. Something that doesnt make sense though is that the number one injector is on the number 4 cylindner, number two injector is on the number 3 cylinder. Thats odd, I did find out the firing order is 1-2-4-3. I think I have it sorted out. I'll post again when I have time again to work on it.

    There is nothing to do the coil matching with firing order. Firing order is controlled by CDI. I will wait anyway for your reply.

    Okay, I should have specified, I left my coils plugged in to the wiring harness. Coils are universal in what cylinder you put them in, as long as you have the proper electrical connections. I'm trying to find out which set of wires goes to what coil. Sorry for the confusion.

    So you unplugged the wires that powers the ignition coils. Did I understood right? And you don't know how to put them back?

Look up on the coil. Maybe the producer put some numbers on the coils. If not, search for the ignition coils and if them are in line like cylinders. If so, that mean are a lot of chances that left cilynder is with the left coil, then the next cilynder is with the next coil and so on.
Anyway, if you put the ignition coil in a wrong way you won't do anything bad to the bike. The only thing will happen is that the bike won't start or will start and run wery weird. In that case stop the bike and change the coils to another cilynder. If your bike will start and run bad that mean you have 2 cilynders working ( I doubt that a 4 cilynder engine could start in one cylinder ) and two of them not. You could find which ones are working by searching the heat on the exhaust manifold ( where the pipes are coming out of the engine ) but not touching them and the hot pipes are from working ones, so all you have to do is to change the coils from the cold cilynders between them. Hope it helped. Please reply.
