Question about 2003 Triumph Speed triple
Got a 2003 955i speed triple. I removed the pipe to do some cleaning and fired it up with the muffler off and put it back on. I also checked the oil, the way it looked on the dipstick, I thought it looked low. so I added about .5 qt. I later realized it was not low so I removed what I added. Now my check engine light is on. The light was on before I removed the extra oil that was added. Did I do something wrong or whats the deal?

SOURCE: non starting speed triple
Offhand, the only and remotely possible explanation for the extraordinary disparity in the compression is when the bike was driven long and hard, parked, engine switch off without allowing for slow cool down with engine running and/or the right side was with doused with water.
Of course, if your posted readings would be confirmed, then the engine has to be worked on, a major overhaul. Perhaps it would be to your advantage if you can have a second opinion and/or a second compression test.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

you either have a dipstick or a siteglass. use castrol syntec actevo 10-40 and buy 4 qts, your bike will not hold all 4 but you will have extra for topping off...good luck to you friend...Tim

There can be multiple reasons for this. Low fuel presure is one cause of this.
If you had dropped the bike the impact can loosen the fuel lines inside the fuel tank. Issues with the fuel pump can cause a low fuel presure. In my case the fuel line was loose but still pushing some fuel into the lines. There is no issue a low rpm cause there just enough fuel to run it at 2000 rpm or lower but not enough pressure to run well at high RPM.

I know this one, it happened to me. Its a factory computer setting to let you know your battery is low. Completely cuts your speedo out (reads zero). Ride 10 mins stop and start again magically it works! I spent many hours fiddling with wires. Only solution - take to a Triumph dealer with the computer and get the "error sensor check" changed to override - takes 2 mins. More info on the Triumph riders site. Later models don't have this setting - mine is a 2002 Triple
