First is keep forks clean next is to park inside a garage out of the weather. A light coating of Fork Oil will slow any corosion.

If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

05 speedmaster front forks are bent &can they b serviced or would i have to replace them &can i put forks from other bikes on...what size are my forks

Hi Myra, it all depends on the type/location/and severity of the bend usually it's better just to replace them with OEM forks and I am sorry you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Triumph but despair not for a mere $10 you can download another one.

I had my 2008 speedster tuned up after a long winters sleep. it came home, (via tow truck, i was out of town) but i tired to start it up, it would only splutter, not grab when i tried to turn it on......

Hi, Cmeridew nice novella and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test, your battery may show 12.5 volts but has little or zero amps and must be replaced.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
5. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
6. FOB battery low or dead.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Faulty starter button.
9. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
10. Security alarm needs a reset.
11. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

Hi, i have a 2009 speedmaster,it sounds like a 250,how can i make it sound like proper triumph. j.mac.

exhaust systems are available to enhance performance and customize your scooters sound and looks. Being a newer vehicle you may want to check with your local dealer as changing the muffler or system changes your back pressure as well, and causes heat build up in the cylinder and adverse performance proper carb jetting is required after a exhaust change.

The engine back fires on the right side

Triumphs have a habbit of the ignition coils failing past a certian age. Switch the coils around and see if the backfires transfer with coil.
