Question about 1996 Triumph Daytona 1200
Ok I have a 1996 Triumph Daytona 1200 limited edition, had it from new.
Recently took it in for its 40,000km service & the day prior to service it started to run rough running on only three cylinders. Mentioned this to the service dealer. Picked up the bike they informed me they replaced the plugs as well as the service. Ran well for the first ride of 300km put bike away for a couple of weeks & went to start it & the same problem developed so I took the plugs out gave them a clean noting the fourth plug on the right was very wet with fuel & fouling up, there was no indicating of fuel flooding as there wasn't the smell of fuel. Took it back to bike shop where they informed me it tested as needing a new ignition coil & replaced it & cleaned the carbys & fuel filters. When I picked it up immeadiately it did the same thing so I left the bike at the shop another week where they rode it put a carbon tester up the exhaust to see if it was running rich which it wasn't they even leaned the last two carbys on the right off. I took it away for a good ride and gave it a good hard ride & about 15kms into ride it started to play up again throttle becoming hesitant when you wind it on as though one of the plugs is fouling up again. So at this stage the bike is back in the garage so any info or suggestions to what may be causing this problem would be appreciated.
I had this problem on mine although it was in the end due to my bike being left leaning on the side stand for six month and as the petrol evaporated from the carbs it left a sandy deposit in the carb nearest the side stand, this is where it get worth reading if your carbs have been off there is a tiny tiny needle on the bank of the carbs alowing the throttle cable to return its so easy to loose on refit its unbelivable it may be that having the carbs /coil has done the trick but this part has been lost during refit causing it to splutter on 3 cylinders. remove your tank look at the carbs from above whilst opening and closing the throttle you should be able to see if both returns are operating properly. its worth a try my friend
