My Triumph Street Triple displayed the ECU malfunction light after a flat battery which has since been satisfactorily charged. How can I reset the ECU so my bike doesn't remain in limp home mo

You could try the 12 minute tune which I think is appl;icable to this model.This resets most issues.
Start the bike from not touch throttle then wait til fan comes on then time 12 minutes exactly then turn bike off.If this dont work go to a dealer so they can plug into the ECU and find out the cause..

Basically I'm losing a lot of corner speed, when turning into corners. I shut the throttle off too early and it feels like I'm carrying the bike round the corner. If adjust the throttle mid bend,...

You need to accelerate very gently while you go round the corner. This sounds wrong but even if you hold the throttle in the same position, physics dictates that as you go round the corner you do actually accelerate as you go round a corner at a constant speed (velocity/direction/speed - look it up if your interested!).
So on the approach to any corner, you need to: -
1 Position yourself and the bike for the approaching bend, toward the right hand side of your lane for left hand bends and vice versa.
2 Adjust your speed to one you can quite happily ride around your bend (Slow down by easing off the throttle or appling the brakes)
3 Once at the right speed, (off the brakes) select the right gear for the speed your doing.
4 GENTLY apply some throttle to stop the bike slowing down anymore.
5 Tip the bike into the corner by gently pushing on the left bar for left handers or vice versa keeping the throttle still so that you hold your speed through the corner.
6 As the bend opens up (becomes a straight) gently apply more throttle as you release the pressure on the bar and stop turning.
If you want to keep improving your riding skills, sign up to a advanced riding course. They are for people who enjoy riding and want to be safer and consequently faster.
Good luck with your riding and enjoy!

, black carbon deposit on spark plugs starts spitting and coughing

You didn't say what year or model bike you have or whether it's fuel injected or carburetor equipped. If it's equipped with a carburetor this condition is usually caused by warming the engine too long with the enricher on. The enricher provides a very rich mixture to start the engine with. I've seen people start their bikes and let them run for ten minutes with the enricher on. They foul a lot of plugs to. Use the enricher to start the bike but as quickly as you can get the bike to run without it, turn it off and use the throttle grip to keep the engine running until it will idle by itself. I use the throttle lock underneath the throttle housing.

I started the bike and was at full throttle when running but throttle was not sticking maybe floats stuck,so i took carb off cleaned it and put it back on know bike won't start at all ,i have spark going...

Are you certain the throttle butterfly or slide (depending on what model bike you have) is seated...if the actual throttle in the carb throat is not closing, starting bike cold will be very difficult as you are feeding in too much air.

I can't get my 2007 Harley XL1200C to start in the cold

Since you didn't say anything about the engine not cranking over, I'm going to assume that the engine is turning over fine and everything else is as well. Some people do experience trouble getting their bike started on cold mornings because they are not familiar with how the enricher circuit works.

The enricher circuit works differently from the old fashioned "choke" found on older bikes. To get the enricher to work as it should, the throttle must be completely closed. A lot of people get ready to start their bikes and open the throttle just a bit. Do not do this with an enricher like your bike is equipped with. If you do, the air the engine draws in does not pass through the enricher passage but rather through the carb throat itself and then the mixture is too lean to get the bike to start.

The way I tell everyone to start the bike is first turn on the fuel at the petcock. If you're bike has the original petcock, it is vacuum operated and you don't have to turn it on, it'll turn itself on. Then, prime the carb by twisting the throttle grip two or three times. Then, turn the switch on and with the throttle completely closed, push the "start" button. The engine should fire right up. If not, twist the throttle one more time and try again. If it doesn't start up then, you may have a problem.

If you get the engine flooded and you smell gasoline strongly. Turn the throttle wide open, then push and hold the start button. Do not hold the button for over 15 seconds at a time under any circumstances or you may burn up the starter.

If this doesn't work, please repost and give me more information about what the bike is or is not doing.

Good Luck

97 TL 1000 won't start after winter storage

Install new sparkplugs. Activate choke. Do not touch throttle. Push starter button. Do not touch throttle. If bike stalls repeat until it stays running, then you may give it a little throttle. If I give my TL any throttle on start up it floods. It usually takes 2 or 3 tries where the bike starts then stalls before it stays running. DO NOT TOUCH THROTTLE UNTIL IT IDLES. THEN GENTLEY.
