Question about 1996 Triumph Triumph Thunderbird

2 Answers

Triumph oil change

I have a 900cc Triumph Thunderbird Triple with only 5000 miles, This bike has a oil looking glass instead of a dipstick. What oil do I use and how much does this bike hold?

    As I remember the Oil Level should be right in the middle. As for the Weight of the Oil, I will need to refer to my 96 Owner's Book. I cannot get to that until tomorrow, sorry. I do want to tell you I have finally found the solution for Bikes that will NOT idle very well if you let them sit for a while.

Look at your owners manual, it will tell you. If you do not have one, they can be found cheap on ebay.

Replace it, it can be an irritating mess if you let it go.

Check the oil pump and the oil. If the oil is too thin or the oil pump is worn, that can cause untold damage to your engine!

Hi. Unfortunately the manual for the TB 900cc is not part of my collection. I have some technical documents for TB 900 and I may have the service manual for the TB 1600.
The best manual for TB is probably the Haynes. The manual is available from the link below:

2010 triumph thunderbird. Do i check oil level with bike level or leaned over on kickstand. I bought this bike used and no owners manual came with bike. Where can i get one?


You should check the oil level on a level ground and it should be standing. If your triumph motor has a center stand, better use that then check the oil level. If you change oil, you also need to change the oil filter. For the manual, go to http://www.triumphmotorcycles.com/

Hope this helps
