Question about 2000 Triumph TT 600

1 Answer

I have a Triumph TT600 2000 model. The battery keeps going flat after about a weeks riding (without lights as this makes it worse,). I have paid around $800-$900 dollars to a triumph motorcycle repairer, replacing the rectifier and battery. Bike still does it - probably worse since I got it back from repairer. Also when battery is running low (loses power) bikes instruments start flashing and eventually cut out altogether!! Frustrated!!! I feel the repairer is repairing by elimination at my expense!

You will have to check the charging rate of your bike, normally it should give an output of around 13.8Volts to 14Volts.
If the readings are lower thn tht, thn there is a problem in the bike's charging system.
Hope this helps!

My Triumph Street Triple displayed the ECU malfunction light after a flat battery which has since been satisfactorily charged. How can I reset the ECU so my bike doesn't remain in limp home mo

You could try the 12 minute tune which I think is appl;icable to this model.This resets most issues.
Start the bike from not touch throttle then wait til fan comes on then time 12 minutes exactly then turn bike off.If this dont work go to a dealer so they can plug into the ECU and find out the cause..

Sounds like an alternator fault, if you know someone with a DC clamp meter or take it to the garage to test it.
Try putting a multimeter on the battery and revving the engine, you should see the voltage climb slightly when revving about 3000rpm and drop slightly when idle.

Hi, Keith_jones1 it should be noted that the reasons your check engine light or CEL stays on constantly or flashes and your bike will or will not start and may turn over or not, these conditions will vary from bike to bike depending on the year, make, and model and you should always refer to your owners/service manual for proper diagnostic procedures. It should also be noted that any type of prior work done to the bike or an abnormal event occurrence IE: adding accessories, electrical curiosity/adventures, laying bike down/crashes, rainstorms/bike washings just before CEL light issues started can be significant hints/aids into tracking down the gremlin, also carry the appropriate jumper wire to access fault codes to reduce the risk of being stranded or towed also keep in mind that your CEL comes to life if anything, and I do mean anything isn't 100% with the ECM like parameter spikes. This means that you could be staring at a major repair, or your speedometer sensor is contaminated and needs to be cleaned.
And the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery check the 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, you 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.
2. Faulty charging system.
3. Faulty system sensor some models have up to 40 sensors
4. Faulty safety switches: run/off, ignition, clutch lever, neutral, side stand, tip over, fuel, and or their connections.
5. The engine got wet where it didn't like to get wet.
6. Faulty ignition circuit spark plugs, coils, cables etc.
7. Broken wire or worn insulation exposing wire to a ground situation especially inside wire harness at tight bends around fairing brackets, under dash panels, under fuel tanks over cylinder heads etc. Many harnesses are open on the ends that will allow water to enter and accumulate at v-bends.
Dielectric grease and contact cleaner are your best friends for wire/cable/harness connectors, look for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets.

My triumph trophy 900 loses power and stops while riding it, but starts again straight away but its getting worse now, does my bke have a regulator rectifier or just the alternator unit, i have had my...

Do I assertain from your message that the battery is not charging? as if your battery is flat there will be no ignition. If the battery is being charged then check the fuel line filter. There is one in the tank inline with the fuel tap. It may be blocked and that moment or so with the engine at rest, may be enough to get you going again.
The battery voltage when fully charged and standing should be 12.8volts. A battery charging should be between 13.8volts and 14.5volts, no higher or else permanent damage to the battery will be done.
Hope this helps.

Battery keeps going flat .. lights dont go brighter when revd

That sounds like the regulator / rectifier has blown
Check all connections & wring between battery & reg / rect.

Try changing your spark plugs, I have recently had a similar problem with a CBR900, spark plugs seemed to be fine (held against frame outside of engine) but didn't actually work under compression, changed for new and bike now runs like a dream.

I have a triumph tt600 with a datatool veto evo alarm on it..yesterday i went to unset the alarm and found it would not unset so i changed battery in the alarm fob but still no joy the lights on the alarm...

Ok i see, Have you checked the bike battery? is it charged or has the alarm worn it down? One thing about bike alarms is that they constantly drain power from the bike battery when the alarm is armed on not. If you ride your bike every days no problems , if you ride on week ends only you could find yourself in this predicament again so, on the alarm wiring you should be able to locate the power supply to it from your bike battery, this wire will have a fuse in it so check the fuse too , and if you want to keep it off because your done with alarms, then just leave the fuse out and you should be back in business. If your bike won't start because the alarm has an immobilizer , to remove it would be easy if you know where it is connected to, in your case the ignition which, there should be evidence of where they connected it and it will require you to remove your tank and seat for access so be prepared to get the tools out , the immobilizer is usually connected directly to either the harness or the ignition switch, unfortunately to find the connection point will be difficult because each alarm installer hides his wires differently so , your gonna have fun locating them, your best bet is to check your bike battery , should be 12 volts or better if it reads 10 or 11 volts or less , get a new bike battery to get the bike going and take it to your local triumph store, the mechanics there no those bikes inside out ,   The alarms we have here do the same thing , i also have a triumph , (rocket 111) i have had the pleasure of riding the TT600 , a very fun bike to ride, the way i see it , if they can steel it and they can't find it , my insurance will get a call, I've had alarms in the past and believe me their more trouble than their worth,
I hope i helped and not driven you crazy, lol ride safe :)

Speedo is not working - cannot locate switch near rear of engine

The best thing to do, (and to find out exactly what is wrong) is to take it to your nearest triumph dealer. They will basically hook it up to an electronic diagnostic tool. And can fix most if not all electrical problems with it. If not they will tell you exactly what needs to be done. It usually costs around $50 to do this, but its easily worth it.

Battery going flat on car daewoo leganza 1997

hi for a battery to go flat means your altenator isn't doing its job in charging it. all cars are different but it has to charge at a certain rate in order to keep it going. if the charge rate is very low then yes the battery wont last. if alternator is ok then possibly a wirring fault somewhere.
