Have you used a hot air gun or hair drier to remove decals

    Have tried this but it worked for a while then bubled up again

    the problem is probably that the decals were incorrectly applied in the first place
    The hot air is to remove the decals
    attaching decals should be done with a mild soapy solution to wet the surface first
    That allows the decal to be attached then the decal dried using a soft cloth
    that removes all the air bubbles and allows the decal to shrink into place as it dries

2005 Triumph Triumph Bonneville no spark

Hi, Michael and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. 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.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty pulse coil.
8. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
9. Faulty ignition switch.
10. Faulty run/off switch
11. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
12. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

The oil light on my 955i Speed Triple cam on for no apparent reason. The oil level is correct. Any ideas, please?

1.Make sure the wire hasnt come off the sensor, if it touches the motor it will turn the light on.
2. buy a new sensor
3. you can screw a gauge into the sensor hole and check actual oil pressure if your still not sure (just guessing but it may be about 3-4 psi)
to get really technical, connect the new sensor to the gauge and a regulated air supply, and use a multi meter to see what pressure the sensor switches, this process can also check the old sensor.

At a guess its most likely the sensor, they can fail and often fail in the light on position, if it failed in the light off position you could lose oil pressure and not know.
Good luck

I own a 2002 Triumph Bonneville. I have just purchased a new chain and both front and rear sprockets. I had intended to change all three. However despite several attempts I could not release the drive...

97 foot pounds plus age make this a tough one to break loose. put it in first gear and have someone stand on the brake. a 1/2 inch air impact should help too.

I have a 2000 Triumph TT 600. It has a leak at the rubber grommet right above the stator cover. I have taken it to the dealer, but they have been unable to fix the problem using silicone sealant. What is...

I don't know why but Triumph does not list the grommet as an individually replacable part which is annoying!
But there is no reason why they/should not be able to seal this with a silicone based product.
If it has been attempted & failed, the reason is undoubtedly that the oil was not cleaned sufficiently from the cover and/or grommet before applying.
So you should thoroughly degrease these before attempting to retry.

Good Luck!
