95 Thunderbird Choke Issues
Hello all, this is my first post besides my introductory post. I have a 1995 Triumph Thunderbird with 18,000 miles on it. Bought it from a dealer about 2 months ago. I couldn't ride it for about 3 weeks due to not having my permit. Got my permit and went on a ride and the bike was fine (that was on a Friday.)
Sunday comes and I go to take my bike out. Well I fire it up and it sounds rough at idle, starts dying and finally dies. I pull it into the garage and notice my lights are dim. Charge the battery. Bike won't fire. Check spark plugs. Fouled out. Black on the tips. Replaced those.
Now here's where my current dilemma is.
I re attached everything (battery, fuel tank and side panels) turned on fuel, starter switch, key, pull choke all the way in. Bike starts. About 20 seconds later I push the choke back, bike starts dropping in RPMs I continue pushing and the bike dies. Pull the choke back in, start again same thing starts dying right after I push the choke back. I have a video of it happening if it helps.
I'm assuming a pilot jet is clogged but the bike didn't sit for maybe a couple weeks while all this is happened. I added fuel treatment and it allowed me to push the choke a little further back.
Before I go taking it back to the shop/tearing into the carbs I wanted to check and see if I could check any other things first.
All input is appreciated! Thank you!
