Are the electrics still Lucas, the prince of darkness? If so, go thru the whole ignition system, track the circuit to the plugs. It may be as simple as a weak battery, closed points, or funky plugs. Start there, and a bad condenser can stop you, too. I've only seen one bad condenser,but you may have the next. Take the plug out and hold it to the motor and check for spark while spinning the motor. With the other plug out it will spin easier. Check both, if you have two coils.

Triumph Bonneville 2004. No lights indicators or horn. Bike runs starting from ignition . relay. Something burnt out? Sorted, new ignition switch and everything 's cushty.


Hi, Porl 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 if necessary.
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 if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

Zx6r 2004. Bike ran great for two months. Went out to dinner last night and came out to my bike not starting. Trailered it home, started when taking off trailer. Went for a 15 minute ride and parked it....


Hi, Matt it saddens me to inform you that you have to put on your Battery Priest Robe and prepare yourself for the Ceremonial "LOAD TEST" but before you begin, maintenance type batteries must be topped off with distilled Holy Water and all batteries must present their terminals to the battery charging altar to receive the electrical infusion of Holy Ions until they have reached a 100% full charge of 12.5 volts or better.
Below is a quick and easy test to see if your battery is in good condition or needs Last Rites and must be replaced.
1. Start by disconnecting the spark plug cables.
2. Adjust voltmeter to DC volts 20-volt range
3. Place the voltmeter leads to the battery terminals.
4. Turn the run/off switch to run.
5. Turn the ignition switch on and press the starter button.
6. Watch the voltmeter as your engine turns over for 15 seconds.
7. If the voltage drops below 9.5 volts, the battery is faulty and must be replaced.

My 1969 triumph bonneville keep burning sparkplugs ( every part is new )


Just so we\'re on the same page, by "burnt spark plugs", you mean the porcelain tip is white with no sooty or oily residue, right?



Could be the ignition is retarded too much (with will make an engine run hot)

Spark plug gaps that are too close will not fire lean fuel mixtures.

Wrong carb jetting/adjustment.



Here is a spark plug diagnosis chart:

By "burnt spark plug", I\'m assuming you mean what the chart refers to as "overheating"

What are the top end torque settings for a 1975 750 triumph bonne


The Base nuts are in the 26-28 ft/lb range and the head bolts are 18-20 ft/lbs. I see the T150 goes from 20-22 lbs. There is a sequence too. I usually snug everything up and work from the center bolt to the four bolts closest to the center bolt and then the 4 outside bolts. Triumphs are pretty forgiving, just don't over torque.. and remember to check the torque or re-torque once you have started the bike. Say, ride it a block or two and then re-torque. I like to put a load on the engine before re-torquing.

I have just snugged everything down by feel in the past with good results but then again you have to know what 22 ft/lbs "feels" like.. good luck..

Very dificult to find neutral and a terrible clattering noise coming from the transmission...just installed a new clutch and that did not change anything.. This is a 2001 Bonneville


You had best get the bike to a dealer for repairs. If the bike is making the sounds as you say, is is highly likely the tranny will self destruct at any moment > like at 60 mph in heavy traffic. You are risking your life if you continue to ride the bike.

Save our bonneville


sounds like the throttle cables need to be looked over .( he get everything back to where it was before the lubing?)as one may be out of sync with the other. the oil change has NOTHING to do with the sputtering and surging ,stall .it would only apply if the clutch was slipping and that would make the bike rev with the car oil.
