TT600 Triumph

So I have one in the shop that sat for 3 years.

The previous owner had broken the fuel line nipple to the injectors.Well this then lets the gravity feed through the return line into injectors and then into the crank case.

Anyway after draining the gas and oil I fitted new plus and gave the bike a complete run down.

Once I was ready to start the bike I didn't think much of it but let me tell you a half gallon of old gas and water in the the pipe makes quite a mess once the bike starts.

I'm thinking it will take several full temp runs to burn all the oil and shit out of the pipe.

I rode the bike today and it seems to run well although I'm not very happy with the low RPM running with a load (as in a gear to high out of a corner)

As I said it seems to run fine other than maybe some fuel injection or mapping issues.These issues maybe inherent to this bikes injection system.If you have any first hand knowledge I would love to hear from you.

Thanks
Gus

They had mapping issues . The dealer can re-map the ECU.

This. First 600cc with FI IIRC, done on the cheap with a Sagem unit, didn't work well.

Stan and SD are spot on. The Speed Four passed around by many of us ran just ok. It had an occasional hard to start problem, and an a nasty mid rpm stumble. I'm sure the aftermarket pipe and hi flow air filter didn't help. I had it tuned by MCC, and all of that cleared up. It ran like a raped ape, and had a mean snarl to it. As it was said, the early bikes did not have provisions for a PC3, so a trip to the dealer was required. MCC (at the time, it was a few years ago), charged $80 for this work. It is worth every penny.

The speed four def has that crappy below 3k rpm stumble. It's a known issue with the engine that mKes you want to keep the Revs up.
