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.

Engine overheating


What model/type is your bike?
Is it water or air cooled?
Does it have a cooling fan?
Does it overheat when in motion or only in very slow traffic?
What indication do you have that it's overheating?

The solution will depend on the answer to these questions.

5. Leaking intake or exhaust valve.

check your spark plug and see what color it is, it sounds like you might be running really lean and that will cause the bike to run hot. if the plug is white or lighter in color thats most likely what is happing.

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
