Question about 2003 Triumph Speedmaster

1 Answer

I purchased a 2005 Speedmaster back in 2009 with less than 3K on the clock. I added another 2k by August that year. I began to notice a bouncing sensation from the front when breaking. On having the brakes checked I was told the discs had warped. The replacement was expensive. I have since covered approx 1500 miles & the bouning has returned. The dealer was non comital other then saying Triumph have'nt had any problems with their discs. I have been told an exactly the same fault by a friend who sold his Spedmaster & whithin months the new owner complained about warped discs. Is there something Triumph are keeping from us?

Hi, Peterjsutton this is so wrong fight back if you take your bike to a dealer for a specific issue that costs outrageous amounts of money only to have the same problem 1500 miles later your situation is not unique, unfortunately, and it is a double edged sword. First, you suffer the emotional stress and frustration of spending all your hard earned "Drachma" and your bike does not get fixed. Second, comes the realization that not only are the technicians incompetent but also the service manager for not doing anything about it, this isn't rocket science, it's a glorified lawn mower engine with extra cylinders and carburetors sometimes. You need to put an end to all the double talk, dancing around the issue, and a "we don't care" attitude, but how you ask, very simple you exercise the "nuclear option" go back to the dealer and ask to speak to the owner or general manager if the owner is not there, then with a straight face and polite voice you ask him/her if they can provide you with the name and contact phone number of the person at your brand motorcycle headquarters in your country that can recommend a repair facility that will fix your bike because your local dealer either can not or will not. I guarantee you that is all the grease you need to get someone to light a fire under the proper persons rear end to resolve your issue "toot sweet" For more information about your issue and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need please click on the blue links below. Good luck and have a wonderful day.

Yes the rotor may be warped. Sounds like a dangerous situation, get it checked ASAP. If you have a way of checking the runout on the rotor to see if it's warped that would be ideal.

SOURCE: are speedmaster front brake discs prone to

I have found that on a tyre change that the discs get damaged (warped) by the person that removes the tyre. They lay the wheel on it side which is a direct contact with the discs to the surface, aply pressure to work on wheel and this way they bend or warp the disk.

Leaking oil tahoe


The rear seal of the engine could have started to leak but a loose oil pan or damaged oil filter could be a factor.

Struts


It varies with the type of service the car has had, but about 100000 Km would be a reasonable figure, maybe less. They would last 50000 Km I think before they began to deteriorate.
Struts can deteriorate so slowly then, you don't notice you are getting a rougher ride until you replace them.
The popular test is to bounce the corner of the car down as hard as you can, with maybe an assistant next to you, then it should rise and settle within 1 1/2 bounces.
The trouble is this test is so crude you can only detect a strut which is completely stuffed.

Hesitates a few minutes before shifting into reverse and then drive. I have serviced this trans according to service manual. Car has 173K miles. Now it is getting worse, RPM at 3k at 60mph. As it warms up...


Providing the fluid is full, most likely problem is a bad internal seal (needs rebuild) If you want to "play" with it you can try adding lucas trans sealer. Sometimes it will expand a worn seal enough to get you by for some time. (I've seen it work as long as a year) If you leave it as it is, eventually you will burn the internal clutches enough for it to completely fail. The sealer will not work instantly but just take it easy on it for about a week and let it do its job.

99 A4 has very little power above 3K and idle bounces & rattles


sounds like a clogged exhaust system , from the outside of the car does the rattle sound like it is coming from the convertor or muffler? if so run an exhaust system back pressure test via a oxygen sensor port or drop the exhaust and run car with open exhaust and see if the power comes back. doing this will likely set a dtc so be prepared to clear codes after test.

if there is no sign of leakage, it's probably fine. sometimes there are air bubbles in the system and it takes a while to work them out. which causes the need to add more coolant. i would keep an eye on it just to make sure there are no leaks. after driving for awhile and parking, look on the ground to see if any coolant is there. good luck

Engine high rev at stop and slowly goes to idle speed.


I've got Hyundai Lantra 1.6 year 2000. It's take time to start when it's hot. When I start my car it revs at about 2k-3k rpm. It also does it when I come to a stop. When I come to a stop it will stay at a higher rpm than that of idle speed. It drives ok when on freeway but uses more petrol. I have changed the water & petrol pump but no luck
