1999 sprint 955I
I had done a service including valve adjustment and when I put it back together the light was on. I thought I was screwed until I found your site. This method worked the second time. The first time I let it run until the fan came on and shut it down. The light stayed on. The second time I let it run for 12 min after the light came on and shut it off. Let it cool down and then started it, NO MORE LIGHT! Not sure if its the extra time or the extra hot/cold cycle, but THANK YOU DAVE!
Thanks and soz, its a 955. I'll do another cycle and try again. Just as a footnote the light didn't come on straight away after the battery change, sometime later. Anyway, lets see what the next try does.
Did you ever find out what was wrong? I had the same warning light combination happen yesterday on my 03 ST. The check engine light came on, and within a couple of minutes, the fuel light came on and and the gas gauge registered below empty. Have not had the chance to do anything except verify that the lights were the same today.
In the end I got it diagnosed and it is the fuel sending unit in the tank - all codes from the computer were related to that alone. I've not changed it yet but will do, otherwise there is nothing to worry about apparently on my bike.
I have found that if you start the bike and get to operating temp, then let the temp get to the poiint that turns the fan on (so you do this if you are on a ride) then let it cool to operating temp, do this 3 times it resets the engine management light. Is this similar to the original reset?
It's been 3 years since DaveM posted this great bit of tech info. But I wanted to give a shout out and a big thank you for it. Excuse the length
Due to a local H-D/ "Triumph" dealers service department, I've had a huge headache over the last 9 months dealing with the issues of their incompetence and dishonesty. The lastest was discovering they'd stripped out the radiator vent hole.
I removed both fairing lowers and the radiator, and got the radiator repaired. Reinstalled everything, tested the rad for leaks by running the Sprint for several minutes. All looked good, shut it off. Washed it the next day, it'd gotten dusty from waiting for the rad repair.
After washing/drying I started it and the engine check light (or EMSMIL) didn't go out.
AAARRRGGGHHH!!!! NOW WHAT?!
It looked like ANOTHER 250 mile round trip to the Triumph dealership I trust to work on my bike. Then I remembered DaveM's thread on resetting the Sagem ECU. I gave it a try this morning, and it worked. YES!!!!
I figured out what happened. When I started the bike to test the rad, I forgot to plug in the fan. It ran for a few minutes till I remembered it and plugged it in. Then restarted the bike to continue the test. Since the last thing the ECU reads is the fan, it couldn't find it. But by doing the ECU reset, it was able to find the fan and reset the light.
This info goes into my owners manual, which gives this bit of wisdom "Contact an authorized Triumph dealer as soon as possible to have the fault checked and rectified."
thanks dave. picked up a 2001 sprint this spring. dealer struggled with the light after pulling the battery (used dealer, not factory). after reading this post i was not worried. a couple of days ago i started my bike after a half hour ride and the light came on again. the next day i reset the computer as you stated and all is well
Convert the fuel filter/pump assembly into a fuel pump and external low cost inline fuel filter.

Had to break down and get a new set yesterday and went with the Metz Z6's. Heard good things about them so thought I'd give them a try. Will let you know how things go. So far just the long way home from the dealer initial impressions are. These are comparing to the BT57's.

Based on the conversation in another thread and my inability to find what I am requesting, I wonder if someone would post a basic step by step to lube the rear wheel bearings. Since the break down of this bearing seems very dangerous I am guessing that many would be happy to have the...
If you guys have offs or scratches that you want repaired thes are the paint codes for Triumph so that you can go to an Autobody shop and get your plastics repainted instead of buying new very expensive plastics. This is off the Triumph website.
