Question about 2001 Triumph Legend TT

2001 Legend TT, temp light flashes

2001 Triumph Legend TT, 18,XXX miles, temperature light flashes when it seems inappropriate based on air temperature/traffic/riding conditions. Sometimes in conjunction with use of turn signals and front brake, but sometimes independent. Bike seems to run very hot...fan takes a LONG time to kick in...This is Oregon climate, not desert CA or SW. Heard that there may be a history of poor grounding to explain this light, but can't find a wiring diagram for my serial number bike. Techs? Any solutions/resources?

SOURCE: Brake lights don't work

Test the bulbs, either with a multimeter or by taking leads from the battery (one from each terminal) and touching them on the bulbs terminals...no light...new bulb.
If bulbs are OK then clean all terminals with emery paper. Still no luck...use mulitimeter to test continuity from fuse to bulb seat terminal. If no continuity check the wiring has not been damaged...if so replace it. Usually this is a corrosion problem. Good Luck.

2001 Triumph Legend TT engine oil flooding with petrol


Hi, Malcolm you're getting ready to go riding you pull out the dipstick to check your oil level and are greeted with the unmistakable smell of gasoline. What happens next depends on the following:
1. You have experienced this before and do not start the engine but do change your oil and filter leaving it 1 quart low until the engine reaches operating temperature then top off as necessary.
2. The amount of time your bike has been sitting since the last time the engine was running.
3. The amount of gas and contaminants in the tank.
4. The oil pump location, exterior or interior.
5. The condition of your petcock gasket/seal/diaphragm.
If your gas tank was low and you start the engine probably nothing you would notice but if your gas tank was full and you start your engine the oil/gas mixture can blow into your air filter, come streaming out of your crankcase breather hose, and launch your oil tank cap followed by a blast of oil. The mess can be minor or you need to call a Hazmat team for assistance. This will also happen if you overfill your oil tank.
Next is the how and why gas can get into your oil tank/system:
a. The vacuum petcock rubber/diaphragm fails, which allows gas to flow from the fuel tank through the petcock, through the vacuum line into the intake manifold, then into the combustion chamber, where it seeps past the piston rings and into the bottom end.
3. Nonvacuum petcocks that are not turned to the off position will patiently wait until contaminants from the gas tank build up in between the carburetor needle and seat breaking the seal thus inviting gas to enter the combustion chamber eventually finding it's way into the bottom end and the oil tank.
4. Bottom line if you're not going to ride your bike for a while turn off the petcock.

Hi, Stuart_goodloe nice novella, forget about the tach it's just the end result go through the checklist and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. 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.
3. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking check for spark leakage in the dark
5. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
6. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.

13. Multiple carburetors out of sync.
14. Fuel filter clogged.
15. Old or contaminated fuel.
16. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carb vent line closed off.
17. Gas cap diaphragm valve faulty.
18. Vacuum line from intake manifold to fuel valve is broken, cracked, pinched, or missing.
19. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
20. Incorrect valve timing.
21. Valve springs floating, weak, or broken.

I have a 1997 Triumph Legend, with approx 2200 miles when bought it had been stood for 8 years. would run under 45000 rpm's managed to get it home carried out full service and stripped carbs found pilot...


If it is backfiring on deacceleration you have a fuel mixture problem and need to "sync" the carbs.
Sync Pro carb tuner works well. This is a precise four channel vacuum indicator designed specifically for intake synchronization of engines with multiple carburetors or throttle bodies.
Also, if you have not done so, check your plug wires for defects and resistors, if your wires have them.
Good luck, hope this helps.
