Picked up my first bonnie on Saturday.

It’s a 20-year-old Hinkley carb model with only 5k on the clock.
I rode it 100 miles back home in the heavy rain (Typical) and got soaked to the bone.
It’s got a bit of a misfire below 3K, so I took the carbs off and cleaned them and that's made it a bit better but not 100%.
My pal had a set of TOR pipes which I've fitted and I've ordered a 120 Jet and new coil pack.
Hopefully once that's arrived and I\ve balanced the carbs it should be sweet.

If you have any suggestions just in case it's not the coil, please let me know.
Also, any advice on setting the carbs up would be much appreciated.

The joys!

Hello Lez90! Thank you for introducing yourself. We’re really glad you joined! You'll want to post your question in the Twin Talk: Air Cooled Twins Technical Talk section of this site. You will get a lot of well informed trouble-shooting help there.

I hope you find this site to be a great place to meet and talk with a great bunch of riders about Triumph bikes. Everyone here is very willing to help with questions or problems with your bike(s). I have personally saved lots of time and money thanks to the skilled help I have received from members.

Please post your questions in the sections related to your bike’s model. Most of the time you will get quick, informed responses.

As you cruise around the many different sections of this site you will find a wealth of information. There are technical sections for every Triumph model and chat sections for the same. Also, we have a classifieds section that is well worth checking out. (NOTE: You need to make at least five posts before you can post to Classifieds.)

Here is a link to the rules of the site and the classifieds. I recommend that you take a few minutes to read through them.

Read first before trying to post. Classified Ad Rules - Accessing Our Classifieds

If you want to just hang out and shoot the breeze the “Biker Hang-Out” Chat Section will be the place to stop in. Biker Hang-Out

If you haven't already please fill out your profile. It helps others to know what you ride and where on the planet you are located.

Here are the governing rules of the site and what can and cannot be done here. Acceptable Use Policy - Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)

Beautiful bike. That‘s my favorite colorway on a Bonneville. I enjoyed the video haiku.
