20 Most Recent 2000 Triumph Triumph Thunderbird Questions & Answers

Hi, Anonymous the vast majority of service, parts fiche, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee of $15 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available and some were never printed in English. The Indian and Philippine markets are usually in E-book format only, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download.

I assume that this bike is carburetted. Most likely the float needle in the carburetor, (or carburetors if equipped with more than one carb), stuck when you first turned on the gas. If the gas has stopped flowing when you open the petcock, you should be OK to start it. If the problem persists, you will probably have to pull down and clean out the carb(s). Pay special attention to the needle and seat. Make sure the needle has no corrosion present, You can use Scotch-bright to clean needle and seat.

Hi, Neil and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking check for spark leakage in the dark
5. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
6. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
7. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
8. Faulty CKP or CMP, MAP, ETS, ATS, TPS, O2 sensor.
9. Dirty air filter.
10. Intake air leak.
11. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system.
12. Carburetor contaminated, sticky float, plugged jets.
13. Carburetor has oil in the bowl due to excessive oil in pre-mix.
14. Carburetor vacuum diaphragm torn, cracked, not seated or installed improperly.
15. Multiple carburetors out of sync.
16. Fuel filter clogged.
17. Old or contaminated fuel.
18. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carb vent line closed off.
19. Gas cap diaphragm valve faulty.
20. Vacuum line from intake manifold to fuel valve is broken, cracked, pinched, or missing.
21. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
22. Incorrect valve timing.
23. Valve springs floating, weak, or broken.

Was the bike working okay after the overhaul? Mis firing due to bad setup or very bad fuel.If it has not run right since the work was carried out ask the repairer to take a look.
If it only started to go awry after using wheap fuel, (it should still be of uniform quality with other fuel,)
I would drain the tank and refill with premium. Try not to get any air into the system if you do this, makes life easier

I'm not particularly familiar with your bike, most bikes the oil has to be dumped out of the top. Some have drain plugs at the very bottom, but with a little extra work you should take the tubes off and thoroughly drain and flush. Removing the tubes is pretty straight forward, supporting the front, removing bolts and nuts and speedo cable. I always recommend to spend a couple bucks and buy a service manual from say amazon. It's the best $$ you'll ever spend.
I cannot over emphasize to be OH SO careful taking the top plug out, it's spring loaded and capable of taking a couple teeth or pranging your nice car parked in the garage. A manual will lay it all out, how to inspect and type/quantity of oil. With only 2 wheels keeping you off the pavement, an inexperienced job on one is ill afforded.

When you fit new sprockets you also have to fit a new chain if you dont your sprockets will wear out very quickly, as your old chain is stretched to the old sprockets.

There are at least two gear shafts, please specify. In general, this kind of repair requires someone that has proper knowledge, training, and tools to complete properly.

Make sure your kill switch is in the run position and that you are in neutral before you try to start.

Let me know what happens please.

Sure, pay me to join my little group and I'll tell you how I solved it. Kind of "one way," aren't you?

You are buying someone elses problem without ever having riden the motorcycle.
..There could be more problems... My answer would be no. I would offer him no more than $1500 and have HIM make the repairs on the bike. Take it or leave it...They are plenty more used bikes on the market to select from.

Hi,,remove and clean the carb. before doing this you might want to check the air screw on the side of the carb, with the bike running turn the screw half a turn in and give the bike a rev,if it bogs more,turn the screw half a turn out and see if throttle response improves.

Triumph... | Answered on Mar 23, 2011

plugs and battery may need changing they should get you going but would also change fuel and oil might even do all fluids breaks and such that should get you going

Triumph... | Answered on Feb 13, 2011

It could be that the coil is shorting out once it gets hot? Reason the insulation of the coil wire is broken and whilst cold the wires are apart, as the wire gets hotter it will expand which could cause the wires to touch (Shorting the system). If you swap the two coils over and the problem is then caused on the other cylinders it is a fair bet you have identufied that as the problem!
