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

I have a 95 thunderbird, the vehicle runs fine and i hadnt had any problems until one day the radiator fan wouldnt turn off, it drains the battery becasue it continues to run even after the engine is...

You could have a bad relay for the fan or the sensor that sends a signal to turn the fan on is "wanting the fan to stay on. It don't know to turn off.

Starts and runs perfect,but occassionaly will

sounds like a fuel problem, maybe blocking fuel tap pickup in the tank, they often have filters on the ends inside the tank, If it has a vacumn opperated fuel tap, they can sometimes stick shut, if so try turning it to PRI between on and reserve, next time it happens.
Its not likely to be anything electrical if it starts again so quickly

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.

Loud clack on shutdown

Unfortunately it is probably the Sprag Clutch. My '95 did that for a while. Then it got worse and started making the noise during starting.
