Anyway, should be fairly simple to figure out. Pull the lower fairings and get a spray bottle full of water. Start the bike and let it idle for about two minutes. Spray water on each header, and see if one is noticeably colder than the others. If one is cold, that's the one with the bad coil. The tach runs off the #1 coil.
I perfomed this simple test ond viola cyl #2 header makes much quieter HISS compared to the other two ....
It could explain my vibraton and lack of acceleraltion under WOT.
You gotta have sparky to go BOOM ...
I love ya guys....

Gone shopping for some coils ...

Also possible would be the lead itself. After installing Nology coils on my bike I was still having some problem so off to my mechanic who found one cylinder running cooler and advised to purchase new leads.
I did so and while at it purchased a new pickup sensor lead. After all the bike was 11 years old. Anyhow that cured the problem.

I know. I like this forum, too. People put up with me through the nonsense.

Motorcycle people are good people and Triumph people are real good.

Turn on, Tune in and Ride off
