Guy's advice is spot on.
Check you don't have a spark by pulling both the plugs, grounding one of them and turning it over. If you don't have spark then do as stated above. If you don't have a mate with a similar bike you'll need to start testing and replacing bits but its really likely it'll be pickup coil, located under the clutch side cover or the coil which is tucked up under the front of your tank. In the case that its your CDI then you're better off getting an aftermarket one from ProCom than paying the crazy prices that triumph want for new genuine one.
I had a similar prob with my ’05 T100 and it ended up being the pickup coil.

I don't think that works unless you ground both plugs, I can't remember the exact expaination for this but Forchetto discussed it way back and it made sense.
I know it can't be the pick up coil as my dealer stated to me "they very rarely ever go bad".
