I have a triumph Bonneville t 100 2005 with 10,000 miles on her. I did a lot of repairs lately, changed the pickup coil, cleaned carbs and just about every other alteration that has been mentioned on this site for when the bike suddenly dies on the road in mid riding.
Without going into great detail (on the bike just turning off and dying part) the newest problem is while riding the throttle stops responding with the bike on. If I am cruising along at 70 MPH with a fixed position on the throttle, it is as if all of a sudden the bike just acts as if you stopped giving it gas and starts to slow down or sometimes jerks... if I rev the engine I get no response, the throttle seems to be dead or disconnected. Then as I’m coasting to pull over, just as mysteriously as this began, it comes “back to life” and starts to respond again. This happens several times mid ride and is very dangerous.
Please note when this occurs the bike is still running and has full power. It is just as if the throttle or the cable is disconnected or something.
I did take the throttle cables off when I cleaned the carbs but I thought I put everything back exactly as was and I checked all of the throttle cables and nothing looks out of the ordinary.
Any have any suggestions or have this happen before?
Have you had the same experience or heard of this before? Has the igniter connections been the issue?
Where would the igniter and the connection be? I am not familiar with it at first glance.
