You will find it is generally a well engineered thing, most of the weak points are electrical. There are many threads here concerning ignition pick up coil failure and HT coil failure. Pick up coil problems usually involve the bike cutting out when its warm and re-starting when its cold. HT coil problems bring about rough running. There is a bolt in the alternator drive which is prone to failure, it will manifest itself as a rattle from the top left of the engine when it is idling. Triumph have a kit of re-designed parts to fix it. I get thoroughly bored with the brake calipers, they are forever seizing / binding. Either the sliding body binding on its pins or a piston binding on the dust seal. I have that problem right now and it needs fixing (again). It is one thing that puts me off uprating the calipers, twice as many pistons to seize as there are now. (dont have this problem with the Lockheed or Brembo calipers on other bikes). This is on a bike that is used every day. You may find that on a bike of that age that the rubber petrol pipes and vacuum hoses will have hardened and may leak or split when you disconnect them, that may cause bad running or cause the petrol tap not to open due to poor vacuum. I have had trouble with wear in the carbs, but parts were replaced and it is now OK. Mikuni carb. bikes are thirsty, expect low 30s mpg. I have also been through several sets of wheel bearings over the years, but they are easy enough to replace. I have not modified my bike, it is still largely as it left the factory (apart from some grime and rust).

do you mean remove the wheel? tires are best left to a shop to do as they have the machine. drive shaft yes? undo all bolts thru frame to final drive casing. slacken wheel nut but do not remove spindle, pull wheel back and out of the frame the drive shaft comes with it, tace out spindle and now lift final drive from wheel, there may be a spacer which might fall out. done deal..

First off did you buy it new? Second has it gone through its break in tune up yet?Did you do the re jeting? My guess is it was re jeted wrong & neeeds to be re jeted again or could also need more air(upgraded air kit) or a tfi or power comand fuel mod.My bike also poped untill I did the air & fuel upgrades & them upgrades will also give you a much needed house power needed for this rig.
Bring it to a shop & have it looked at.......

Hello Mike...If the rear cylinders aren't firing I would start by checking for defective plug wires. Visual, for cracks and with an ohm meter for resistance. Test your coils, same principal, test to see if their is power to the coils. Your bike has a TCI box thats located in a not so good spot....that really takes abuse. This is "brain" a circuit board. It gets hot, cools down, and moisture inside is the result, over the years it finally gives up. The voltage to the coils travels through the TCI. If you aren't getting 12 volts, then corrosion, faulty circuit, leaking capicitors inside the "box" are at fault. I have heard of some riders opening the TCI, letting the sun dry it out and remounting in a different location, I have replaced several, on the early viragos. They have been discontinued. i found several on ebay, also i know a biker that can repair solder these, if needed.
