Hi, John you need to repost your question under the Iveco or Truck category, not Motorcycles. Thanks, Gregg

Just a guess. The door latch is known to go bad on the DW's. Easy enough to test and change. (If the latch malfunctions, the machine thinks the door is open and all power is killed).

Heres a link on how to change (once you pop the latch out, you can test).

Battery backwards. Or normal indicating you're connecting power? It's so7nds like it's running to ground

There is a recall that may affect your turn indicators!

The issue pertains to the wiring harness in the headstock. According to Triumph, the clutch cable rubbing against the wiring harness leads to the wires getting damaged. This can cause electrical systems like the headlamp, turn indicator and in some case ignition system like the engine kill switch to malfunction. As a result of this, you cannot switch off the bike.


You are not alone with indicator issues.

check oil level and pressure --check timing and possible need of tune up

The switch needs some rubbing alcohol poured in to rid corrosion. But it cud also be worn..take it out n inspect. Buy a bike shopbook

If the radio problem showed up, at the same time the loss of power did...I would check the charging circuit, to see if something is loading it down heavily. This is only an educated guess, since I don't even know what brand of bike you have, or have the wiring diagram for it. An alternator with a bad diode in it, or a nearly dead short on its output, can act as a brake. If your bike uses other electrical accessories, or electric start...and the battery is being charged properly, and the other accessories work ok...then I would start looking for something binding or dragging, in the drive belt system. Especially, if the last belt wore out quickly. Good luck.

What type of spark plugs did you install (NGK or DENSO)? Did you check the gap and/or gap them to 0.036? There are other possibilities. Do you own a multimeter? You may want to pull them and check the resistance. Maybe a coil wire is not seated or the coil and/or coil wire needs service or repair from being handled. Maybe it is a coincidence and there is another problem. If the ignition system checks out then move to fuel and air. Any questions please let me know. Good luck.

If your model is the 90 then it should be a 4 stroke engine you put 10w30 or 10w40 oil in the engine and gas in the tank. Do not mix oil into the gas tank on a 4 stroker you will knacker the engine big time.

If however you have a definite 2 stroke model, you have 2 oil tanks one for the gearbox, and the plastic one under the seat for the engine.

Gearbox tank fill with 10w30 oil the plastic tank under the seat with 2 stroke oil. The 2 stroker mixes the oil and gas so you don't need to.

anything from overheating -power spike -short-loose connection -component failing

Power... | Answered on Aug 19, 2019

It shouldn't if the battery holds a charge and is fully charged. You can pull headlight fuse to test during the day, but this may be ******* in your state and can get you a ticket. It is most likely a fuel or valve leakage, adjustment problem.
