Hi everyone, just bought my first Triumph last week.
Its a 2001 model tt600 in black & yellow,which has been converted to look like a Speedfour.
Its a one owner bike,but not a careful one
I only paid a couple hundred pounds for it,hence it needs some t.l.c. !!
The bike had been laid up in a garage for a number of years,then left outside for a couple more uncovered
It was purchased as a non runner,and soon had it turning over after cleaning out the starter solenoid.
What i soon discovered was the fuel tank was two thirds full of rusty water,ahh
The water drain under the fuel filler cap had blocked up causing water to over spill into the tank.Soon cleared that out and had the fuel pump assembly out,then cleaned it all up.
Unfortunately that original owner had been cranking rusty water/fuel through the injectors,which in turn were completely blocked up.
I managed to buy a fuel rail complete with injectors,regulator and fuel lines for a reasonable price. And it then fired up
With a 7000rpm tickover
That was a missing/unplugged air pipe to the throttle bodies.
Now the tickover is down to 1700rpm cold,much better !
Its not all good news as my newly purchased link cable and tune ecu program tell me,i have fault codes p0230 and p1232.
Fuel pump relay (which it doesnt have!) and short circuit/earth problem in same area.
Not to be out done,the clutch has no resistance at the lever.
In other words,when you pull the feather light lever in,theres hardly any pull from the spring to bring it back.
The cable is brand new.And you can move the cable lever coming out the clutch cover with no effort.Not good
Still its a project,and a learning curve as always.
Pictures to follow if it ever stops raining in the south of England !!
