Triumph Adventurer 900 goes bang and stalls when put in gear!

Hi, my dad recently purchased a Triumph Adventurer 900 bike from a friend which only has 3500 miles on the clock and was all in good working order. The other day my dad went to take it out for a ride, he went to put the bike in gear when the bike made a loud bang and stalled. He now cannot get the bike out the garage and is nearly in tears so could someone please help my Dad. Many thanks James

The left hand indicators on my triumph adventurer 900 have stopped working. The bulbs are ok and the relay ticks away and appears to work ok.

Have you tried swaping the indicator wires around plug the left into the right this will eliminate the indicators themselfs if the problem moves to the other side the relay would be at fault assuming you have checked the bullb wattage

Most oils are preferential, but don't use car or low friction special oils in your bike, and beware of detergent oils if you don't know the service history, they will break down in a bike and can dislodge accumulated crud. To be safe10/40- 20/50 Motorcycle oil for engine/ part synthetic if you like, but not a necessity sae 80s gearbox, Dot 4 clutch and prepacked branded long life coolant with integral lubricant for cooling.

You should not rely on the possibility its metric, it may be BSP, check it by buying a selection of nuts and trying them before you order, but why not just order a seal kit comprising the Dowty washer if its the thread that's leaking?

Trident 900 - No Acceleration

The only times my 'dent had no acceleration, it wasn't firing on all 3. Easy check: start the bike, let it idle for a couple minutes, spray water from a spray bottle on each header. Chances are, there'll be a cold header from a cylinder not firing due to a bad coil.
