1996 Triumph Trident 900. acts like its out of gas,

Hi, Alan always check fuel flow first to isolate the problem area otherwise the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel cap or fuel tank not venting properly.
3. Fuel filter clogged with rust or dirt.
4. Fuel valve/petcock not in the on or reserve position.
5. Vacuum line to fuel valve cracked, broken, pinched, or missing
6. Fuel valve/petcock clogged or diaphragm cracked, cut or torn
7. Fuel line from the fuel valve to the carburetor or fuel pump clogged, cracked, pinched, bent, broken, or missing.
8. Fuel pump not working
9. Fuel line touching cylinder or head causing fuel to boil and vapor lock, repair by rerouting and wrapping line with convoluted tubing.
10. Carburetor inlet clogged.
11. Carburetor float or needle and seat stuck.
12. Carburetor not venting properly overflow line or bowl fitting clogged, pinched, or bent.

My 900 legend starts fine, I will ride for about 20 sec. and dies. If I wait about one hour it will do the same thing again and again

Check the fuel cap breather is clear. It is a very small hole that can become blocked, pressurises the tank and stops fuel flow. You could try riding it with the fuel cap on loose as a check.
Good luck.

Fuel starvation???

Hi, Ghorner558 the carburetors and fuel have to vent in order for your fuel system to function properly 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 Yamaha, despair not, for a mere zero $ you can download another one.

Triumph trophy 900 runs on two cylinders intermitent

I would start by checking for kinks in the vacuum hose. The situation you describe would usually result in a low vacuum situation and if the hose is kinked, this could lead to the problem you describe. There could be a problem with the tap itself and a good place to look for more info is at, the Triumph owner's forum.

Motorcycle poor running

Have you checked your fuel floats ,You may be suffering from high speed fuel starvation .try adjusting you floats to allow the maximum fuel into your carbs with out over flowing .You could also check to compression on the cylinders ,you may have a compression problem at high speed ,and this will cause hunting untill your engine gathers momentum and drives through it .

Trophy 900 ignition problem

First, I would check all the usual suspects. Roll over valve, fuel petcock, vacuum line to petcock, fuel cap vent, fuel filters(all three), coils, crank sensor, sparkplug HT wires and caps. All electical connections(side stand switch, clutch switch, ignition switch, engine cutoff switch). Battery condition. Wireing harness around the headstock(broken wires due to pushing/pulling on harness). Also check the plug for the alarm unit located in front of the battery box. Corosion in the plug can cause an intermitent short on the gray with green-dot wire that goes to the Igniter(there is a wire that loops around on the back side of the plug). Check all these things before throwing money at it. Also, the Igniter can be tested at a Triumph dealer. Baxter Cycle ( would be a good source for used parts from breakers. I've heard of someone that has rebuilt Igniters to swap, but I'll have to search for them again, I think in the UK or Europe. Hope this helps.
