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.

SOURCE: 2002 speed triple 955i - when opening the throttle

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.

SOURCE: tacho stops working on triumph speed triple 955i

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

Got the f250 started but the turbo wont spool up

if the tubo wont spool up its probably seized,
remove the intake tube, with engine off and see if it will spin, if it wont spin then probably seized. the oil line could be plugged, remove the oil line and squirt WD 40 then fresh motor oil in it and turn the turbine by hand back and forth until you free it up. a pipe cleaner in the tube will clean residue out.
if you get it to spin check the oil pressure to the turbo, should be above 30 psi.
keeping clean oil in the engine (regular oil changes) will keep this lubed. remember the turbo spins at speed of 10000 rpms, so clean oil is esential.

Hi, You probably have a cracked or damaged fuel pipe or possibly a blocked fuel filter on the end of your fuel pipe. Empty your fuel tank back into a clean bowl to see if the fuel is clean you can then se the pipe and filter. . The pipe disconnects from the carb and goes through a gromet on top of the tank. If you remove the gromet with the two pipes going into the fuel tank the pipe s and filter will come out. Normally the pipes get damaged where they go through the grommet. You can get new tubing on line ebay or other site lots in the states who will send to you I am sure. When replacing the grommet put some 2 stroke oil on it to help it go in easily and make sure the filter goes right down to the bottomm of the tank. hope this helps,
Best of luck

Vauxhall vectra 2.2 sri petrol,,it drives perfect apart from sitting at the lights it revs up and downbetween under 1000-2000 revs,,it also sucks air in when pull dip stick out or take oil cap off,,any...

check air filter and also clean out the idle valve also check the breather pipes coming off the cam cover. one goes to the intake pipe and one goes to the bottom off the intake chamber thin one that will be block for definite as they do. on the back of the engine there is a black pipe coming off the cam cover and goes to a metal pipe take that off clean out the ends and you will need somthing like a long metal bit of strip and put a hook on the end push that down the hole and lift out the burnt oil push down until when it comes out there is oil on the end. then that end is clear then. on the thine pipe off the cam cover you need to clean the pipe out and this is the difficult bit the part were it fits to the intake you need to clean that out it is hard to get to but you can do it without having to take it all apart. when clean and putting back together i used an inline fuel filter on this line and it stops it clogging up the line. when all clean out and put back together and check that it blows out the oil cap and not sucks engine should be fine after this. I have had to do this one time on mine ecotec engine did it 6 years back and is still nice and clear run for a few days then change the engine oil and filter. jobs done.

Change fork seals on 98 fxdl

You'll have to take each fork leg out of the front end to change the seals. I'm not positive what type front end is on FXDL but it it's a standard type (as opposed to an inverted front end), it's not too difficult.

First remove any sheet metal that might be covering the upper and lower triple trees. Lift the bike off the ground and remove the front fender and front wheel. Loosen the pinch bolt on the upper and lower triple trees. Do one tube at the time. Lubricate the portion of the top tube that is between the upper and lower triple tree. You must slide the fork assembly out of the triple trees. Loosen but don't remove the top caps.

With the fork assembly now out of the triple trees, remove the top cap and pull the spring out. Notice if the spring has a tapered end. Remember which way it came out so you can put it back in the same way. Invert the tube and pour out the oil and let it drain.

You'll see an 8mm bolt in the bottom. Sometimes this is a shallow piloted bolt. If so, you'll need at least a brand new hex key or allen wrench to loosen the bolt. Take the bolt out and slide the lower slider off the top tube. You now have access to the seal. Make sure you put the seal in faceing the correct way. Rince the slider out on the inside with clean mineral spirits and allow to dry. When you assemble the tube and install it on the bike, the amount of oil you put in it is the "dry" amount since you disassembled the tube and poured all the oil out. Put the sping back in the tube and install the top cap. Insert the tube into the triple trees and slide the tube upwards until the top of the top cap is 0.420" to 0.500" above the top of the upper triple tree (notice the height of the other tube that you haven't moved yet).

Good Luck

1985 SPEED TRIPLE (only done 10,000 miles from new) Engine runs on all three cylinders & will rev up to 8000rpm then runs on two cylinders, back fires & dies completely. Will start again &...

the only other things I can think of mate without looking, is put your hand over the silencer at tickover (when engine cold) and see if the the exhaust is blowing from somewhere. A new gasket should sort that. If you dropped it on the timing cover side it might be worth a look in there to see if there is any damage.
good luck
