Question about 1995 Triumph Triumph Thunderbird

1 Answer

Just got my 1995 triumph running great at low RPM but when you hit the throttle is bogs way down and stalls. Do the carbs need to be sunk? It seems like the timing is off.

Mixture definately its either pulling to much fuel in or not enough fuel when reved also could as well be the float height as the fuel isnt there quick enough to rev up 1st try the mixture by on the carbs there will be a mixture screw turns this in and unscrew it 2 1/2 turns out and try this if still no difference fidle with it until you feel its getting better or if this doesnt help get back to me and i will tell you the float also change the plugs may make a difference buddy

Start up idle is slow below 1050 rpms and sounds like going to stall while idling. Runs fine otherwise.

When i hit the throttle hard it bogs down it also wont rev past 6,000 rpm


When you say it won't rev past 6k what happens? Does it bog down and eventually choke itself out?

sounds like the carb needs a good cleaning. Have you replaced the fuel and air filter? If you take the air filter off does it run better or worse?

When you strip a set of carbs you should balance them after refitting. The kit isn't expensive and comes with instructions. It could be something as simple as the throttle cables are set up wrong(if one is opening first then the engine may work okay in 1st but bog when under greater load ie 2nd)

Hello, i have a stihl ts400 and i just rebuilt the topend(crank,piston,cyl,all bearings and seals.Fires up easy, idles fine,revs fine, but when you hold the throttle down it doesent want to hit rev limiter...


There is not an actual rev limiter. The top end is controlled by the carb. You actually want it to sound a bit rich at full throttle so that it has enough fuel when cutting under a load. What causes me some alarm is the revving up part. If it revs too fast that is a lean condition and can quickly ruin the piston and cylinder much like running straight gas. A torn intake boot can cause this. The high speed spec for the TS400 is 9,600 rpm + OR - 500 RPM. Your saw may not have a needle to adjust the high side as some have only the low speed adjuster. Also when you disassemble and clean the carb always use a new kit with the gaskets and diaphragm. Any Stihl dealer can furnish the kits and they aren't terribly expensive. Often between $10-20.

Motor seems to idle and run okay however it bogs down when you pull throttle quickly .it is a 1967 triumph 650 single carburetor .


Hi,,remove and clean the carb. before doing this you might want to check the air screw on the side of the carb, with the bike running turn the screw half a turn in and give the bike a rev,if it bogs more,turn the screw half a turn out and see if throttle response improves.

Carb would be the place to start assuming it was running fine before it was stored. Gas can "varnish" in carbs while in storage for long periods of time if a fuel stabilizer wasn't added before storing. Might try some fuel system cleaner before going to the trouble of removing the carb.

2004 sportsman 600, bogs down bad at half throttle.


Check that your choke is working correctly
Your timing may be way off as well

Lack of Power/Gas at high gear/RPM


Not a coil problem, gas problem. When you grab a handful of throttle with a fairly cold engine does it bog down on you? (choke off) if yes your running lean and likely need to go in and have your carbs cleaned out anf rebalanced.

Bogging engine 3400-4000 RPM under full throttle.


Sounds like one of the intermittant jets is clogged. Need to clean the carbs.
