RE: Bike Rage

Have you made sure the fuel shutoff valve is open?

RE: Bike Rage

Gregs and LK1 -appreciate the input- update:

I hadn't even thought about a 'heel and toe' shifter but that is a great idea if i never recover the upward strength in my foot.I was contemplating selling my collection and maybe buying an old but pristine Triumph T160 Trident or Rocket3 with RHS gearshift,but i think i would find them too frustratingly ancient in performance.I had a Norton 850 Commando when i was a kid and i thought i was mega but they seem like dinosaurs now.

Anyway,regarding my Daytona,with a recharged battery i cranked it with a can of starting fluid squirting in the ram air and it fired immediately,but ran only as long as the starter fluid was being sprayed.
So i figured maybe the vacuum fuel tap was blocked and called a Triumph main dealer for pointers.
He explained that there is no fuel tap or shut-off valve but fuel flow is regulated by the ECU and injection system.He seems to think that i either have no fuel pressure or that the three injectors are blocked.Bearing in mind that it has just been standing,gummed injectors seems the most likely culprit.I have never stripped one of these systems so it looks like i will be in for an interesting weekend.

New injectors he thinks are about £100 each!! WTF??

RE: Bike Rage


That sounds exactly like what I thought would happen.

It is entirely possible that you've gummed up the injectors, but before I went to that much trouble, I'd drain the gas and dump in a couple of gallons of fresh fuel, as well as changing the fuel filter, and -- were it me -- I'd also dump in a good quality injector cleaner, I like Berryman's B-12. If you only have a couple gallons of gas (no reason to fill it completely until you're sure it's okay) then one can of cleaner should be good.

Then get it running again and try to keep it running so that the fuel/cleaner mix gets pulled in to the injectors. The more you run it the better it will get, if you can get it running stably (not perfect, but not dying below 2,500 rpm for example) then it may clean itself completely in a tank of gas or two. Find someone you trust to ride it around some, scare a few old ladies for you. :)

That's certainly preferable to pulling the injectors. YUCK. If you do get to that point see if you can find rebuild kits, they make them for lots of car injectors.

Lastly, go price some Ducati injectors; it'll make those seem cheap (how about $500 for the pair for the 750...).

Seriously, man, Good Luck with it. And with your foot/ankle; there's a guy at work has something called drop foot, he's seriously depressed about it.

Have a great weekend,

RE: Bike Rage

Yeah am going to get some injector cleaner and give it a try.
I also found a T595 forum and the guys there say that the relays for the fuel injection are prone to damp,so,if when i turn the key i can't hear the fuel pump priming,suspect a bad relay.Much cheaper and easier to replace than the injectors.

Thanks your input-you have a good weekend too!
