If you have no spark check through ignition components. Coils, pick-up sensor. Leads. Cpu management

Triumph speedmaster 2005 carbied not firing on one cylinder. Replaced coil but still no spark. Leads and plugs are good

My 2002 triumph Thunderbird stalled and wont start

Check fuel filter and air filter, then spark plugs, not necessarily in that order.

95 model thunderbird, runs great until idle, cuts out no spark bike starts again when it feels like it. when idling engine randomly miss fires as if you were flicking the kill switch on and off quickly....

The pick-up coils fail sometimes but usually lead to a complete failure
Before just replacing parts u can eliminate some suspects ie kill switch,clutch switch & ignition switch by bridging
Also check that there isnt a spark jumping from an HT lead or plug cap

Ride Safe

I just bought a used 1996 Triumph Thunderbird. I ran it a while and when I shut it off the hot light came on and it will not start. The green neutral light will not come back on until it cools off and it...

initially try to turn the engine slowly by hand (for valve adjustment, etc..) place the transmission in neutral and remove the spark-plugs (so you don't fight the compression of the cylinders). A 1 1/8" socket or wrench can be used on the crank-bolt or you can just pull the accessory belt. Avoid pulling on the plastic fan blades, they break.
Also carefully check to see if it has spark and also check your fuses under the hood
thanks and plse do rate this solution.keep updated.
