Question about Triumph TT 600 Motorcycles

1 Answer

I dropped my triumph TT600 from standing whilst it was running and now I can't get the engine started (I get a clicking sound). I assume it's probably hydro locked up and so far I have removed the tank, airbox and plugs and coils. I now can't remove the generator cover to get to the allen key socket to turn the bike over (the bolts are on solid) Would reconnecting the battery and starting up as normal help blow the oil/petrol out of the cylinders? I'm currently recharging the battery as we speak.

Hi again,

Initially, appreciate the rating in the chat.

I have to add that it maybe to your advantage to check the condition of the engine oil. There is a possibility that raw fuel flooded the combustion chamber and it may have seeped down to contaminate the engine oil in the crankcase. This is as opposed to the engine oil getting into the combustion chamber hence the possible hydrolock.

Would appreciate any update(s).

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Triumph trident 93 model side stand works as it should but warning stays on with stand up john

Hi, John either the switch is faulty or the circuit is grounded to the light that being said the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.

Were can I get a manual for a triumph motorbike tt600 4 speed 2002?

Hi, William the vast majority of service, parts, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 sometimes more and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, then there is eBay where you may be able to find what you need at a very high price because of its age and rarity. Most of the "FREE" manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. To download your manual please click on the links below. Good luck and have a nice day.

My 2003 triumph tt600 shuts off when the temp reaches 220F it won't restart till it cools below 190F then when it reaches 220 it shuts off again it seems like I hear a little click as it shuts off

That is programed into your ECU and is a safety to stop engine damage. I would be checking the cooling system and thermostat for correct operation as 190F is the correct operation temperature.

Hi, my 2002 Triumph tt600 keeps dying and the speedometer keeps shutting off while I'm riding, which wire(s) do i need to look at to fix this problem?

Im just throwing this out there. Im not familiar with the TTs but I am familiar with the 955s and it sounds like a position sensor ( cam or crank) starting to go bad and grounding out.

Engine temp raises prity quick when your not moving. can go to 100 degrees easy enough then drops wen you get going..

this is quite normal for a bike to do this some of the European bikes eg. gagiva and triumph run a little hotter then some of the jappers eg. triumph tt600 sits around 116 degrees (c) but to answer your question make sure your thermo fans are kicking in and out and also check coolant and overflow bottle also oil level and possibly even bleed the water pump and start bike when cold with the radiator cap off and see if the fluid is being pumped (checking if water pump is working) hope this helps buddy im actually a motorbike mechanic apprentice

Tt600 performance parts?

There are no mass-produced engine parts for the 600/650cc, so you'd be looking at custom built parts. There are ecm programs (e.g. power commander and tuneboy) that will help with power as will aftermarket mufflers.
