Sounds like an airlock. When it fell over an air bubble would've gone to the highest point of the cooling system, & when you picked it back up the air gets trapped, if it gets trapped near the thermostat it will send the computer a false reading & fans wont turn on causing an overheat. Give the cooling system a flush. Remove lowest cooling system hose you can find I think its the water pump hose, & remove the radiator cap all the coolant will drain. Put your garden hose in the radiator turn it on & start your bike, run the hose through it for about ten minutes or untill the water coming out of the hose you removed runs clear then shut the bike off. Put the water pump hose back on, clamp it up, & fill the radiator 50/50 water/glycol. Leave the radiator cap off start the bike & get it to normal operating temperature, as it warms up air will rise to the radiator cap & the coolant level will drop just top it up accordingly. Once the bikes warmed up & bubbles stop rising,  put the cap back on & take it for a ride. Hope this helps!

Triumph st 1050 2010 Started bike and left running too long. Came back later to find bike had powered off and was very hot. Unable to start. No power with ignit ion on and red start switch on.


Try disconnecting the battery, wait a few minutes, reconnect it, and try again. If that doesn't work, then you will need to take it to a Triumph repaired for diagnosis.

1999 Triumph Daytona 955i My bike overheats when stationary for 5+ mins. The temperature rises to the redline then piddles out of the expansion tank.The fan does not kick in with the bike running, but...


Hi, Chris_goslin and the usual suspects are:
1. Engine oil level and SAE weight are too low or not circulating.
2. Insufficient or blocked air flow over the engine.
3. Heavy combustion chamber carbon deposits.
4. Ignition timing retarded due to faulty MAP, CKP, or CMP sensor.
5. Carburetor jetted too lean.
6. Leaking intake or exhaust valve.
7. Water coolant old or low change every two years.
8. Water pump failure.
9. Radiator clogged, cap loose or malfunctioning.
10. Radiator fans not coming on.
11. Clutch slipping, brakes dragging, heavy load, towing a trailer etc.
12. Idling too long without moving.
13. For constant hot weather temperatures, mountain, or desert riding conditions consider adding an oil cooler and or cylinder head cooler.

My 2009 triumph daytona 675 had some melting from the voltage regulator!!! nasty tar like residue all down the bike, so took fairing of and bought a used voltage regulator, turn ignition on and all lights...


Hi,
Its possible the ignition module has failed caused from the over voltage supply when the voltage regulator overheated.
Have the ignition checked for spark, if this is ok then it has to be a fuel delivery problem which unfortunately could be the ECU.
Hope this helps.
Thanks

This is a common problem with this bike,and does not mean that the engine is overheating.Go to www.triumphnet.com and click on the "mods" link for a solution.
They show photos of the modification which basically consists of installing a mesh screen on the inside of the fairing to channel the heat away from your leg.Also the upper fairing vent is enlarged to aid heat disipation.

My fan stopped working on my 05 Triumph Speed Triple 955cc. What would cause this?


check you fuses you should have one for the fan. if that is not the problem you need to check the thermal sensor in the radiator. if it has 2 wires going to it connect them togeather that should turn the fan on, if it has only 1 wire ground it and that should turn fan on. if you test the wires and the fan works replace the sensor.

Oil


Most oils are preferential, but don't use car or low friction special oils in your bike, and beware of detergent oils if you don't know the service history, they will break down in a bike and can dislodge accumulated crud. To be safe10/40- 20/50 Motorcycle oil for engine/ part synthetic if you like, but not a necessity sae 80s gearbox, Dot 4 clutch and prepacked branded long life coolant with integral lubricant for cooling.

2006 Triumph Sprint St


hey pal! Go to your favorite Motorcycle parts store (Cycle Gear etc) and buy 4 Qts of Castrol Syntec 10-30 or 10-40 wt. If you bike has a centerstand put in on center. Look carefully on both sides of bike engine for a small siteglass to check oil level..if you have a dipstick forget about the siteglass.Your bike will take between 3 &4 qts and we will start by putting 3 in the crankcase after we have put drainplug back in and installed new filter ok? Then start motor for 1 minute letting the oil pump into the new filter. shut bike off and check oil level...top off as needed...Good Luck to you !....Tim
