Motorcycle Questions? Ask a Mechanic.
Hi Doug, no spark i'm afraid, have checked all the fuses, they are OK, checked the HT leads they are OK, HT coils are OK (checked with multi meter). I'm a bit stuck now.
PS compression OK.
Thanks Doug, i have run a meter test on HT leads, they are OK, i have tested the ignition coils they are OK.
It might be the pick up coil unfotunatley Triumph do not release any resistance details, as there was no resistance i'm guessing it might be that, what do you think.
I tried to get a visual of the coil which is situated behind the alternator cover, but could undo the bolts OK but could'nt pull the cover off and was reluctant to use brute force, so i might end up having to take it to a garage anyway.
If i could have your thoughts about resitance on the pick up coil and any ideas on how to get the alternator cover off i would be gratefull.
Also am i on the right lines in tracking through the ignition system? as if its not the pick up coil it must be the Ignition control unit?
Many thanks. Eddie.
Thanks Doug looks like its the pick up coil then as there is no resistance (pulse) so it look like an open circuit. Because i can't get the alternator cover off i'm stuck as it might be the air gap has closed but my best guess is that because it ran hot for so long its been damaged, is that a fair assessment?
At least if i have to take it to the garage i have done some of the diagnostics which should save some time, any other thoughts?
Thanks Doug i am going to accept your answer so don't worry about the manual now, my gut feeling is the cover has welded itself a bit so i'm not going to touch it and leave it to my local garage to sort.
Might be an expensive lesson for me doing other jobs and forgetting about the bike but hey ho s**t happens, thanks for your help, Eddie.
