Question about 2007 Triumph Rocket III

1 Answer

How do you get to the spark plugs to change them? Every owner's manual I've ever had told me how to do this -- not the Rocket III!

    Almost correct. Air (engine asperation vs. radiator) intake is actually under saddle. The silver panel does have to be removed. But, this is just the first step in removing the tank entirely (siphon or drain off gas in tank). The length of the fuel line does not allow the rest of the operation with tank connected. Then there are three more layers of plenums, wiring harnesses, etc. that have to be removed in order to access plugs. And you're right, they are on top under the tank, but frankly, it just aint that simple. Thank you for your answer. I will accept it and pay the fee. This is because I accept the responsibility that I should have just called the local dealer service department first.

    The way this site handles comments is really bad. I did not intend to submit the same coment three times. But, the site kept telling me "Oops! Try again."

From what I saw looking up this vehicle. There is a Silver panel or cover on the left side of the engine above the air intake that you will have to remove and that will most likely give you access to release the tank to either swing it to the right side of the bike of lift it off. This is an in line 3 cylinder according to the specs and most likely has the plugs accessed from the top under the tank.

Hi, Im looking for the manual relating to the mechanism of the engine of a Triumph Rocket III (2008). Can you be of any help?


Hi, Lillie 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.

VALVE ADJUSMENT 2011 ROCKET 3 .WHEN IS BEST TIME ..I KNOW THE BOOKS SAID TEN THOUSAND MILES..AND YES I UNDERSTAND THAT SERVICE DEPARTMENT NEED TO MAKE THERE MONEY AND TO PAY THERE PEOPLE..BUT 650 DOLLARS...


Hi, Jerry6shoote I totally understand your position on this matter it comes up a lot on Fixya here are your options:
1. Loose valves will have the annoying tick but no engine damage.
2. Tight valves will be silent but may not seat properly causing loss of compression, overheating, and burnt exhaust valves.
3. You can request the 10,000-mile service without the valve check to save hundreds of dollars.
4. You can do the valve check and adjustment if necessary yourself.
For this scenario, you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Triumph, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.
