When i am riding my triumph thunderbird 95 it will just shut off but then turns right back on then off then on then runs fine the rest of the time it seems to be when i first head out like the first 10 miles or so i have also noticed that when i am at a stop light and i use my front brake the rpms will dip down when i let go they go back up could it be my voltage regulator?

2001 Triumph Triumph Thunderbird quit running while riding

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, stator, magneto, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Faulty or corroded kill switch.
11. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Fuel tank empty.
15. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked, loosen gas cap and go for a test ride.
16. A failed fuel pump, pressure regulator and or fuel injectors.
17. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
18. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.
19. Petcock clogged or damaged.
20. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.

When my '95 Triumph Thunderbird gets warm, the neutral light will not come on when the bike is put in Neutral which also kills the starter. The problen rights itself if the engine is allowed to cool....

Sounds to me like the bike is not recharging thebattery as it runs, and when you turn of the ignition the battery regains about 30%of its charge which allows you to run again, connect a multi meter to the battery with the ignition off, you should have 12 to 14 volts preset, now run the bike the voltage should rise to aprox 12-16 volts DC any readin lower than 12 volts could indicate a charging problem, hope this helps

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

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.
