hello from lancashire
« on: October 30, 2013, 01:36:18 am »
Hi all I am Ian from Preston I used to ride a cbr 600 f sport till I made it a mascot on the front of some guys van ouch. I recently test rode the triumph trophy 900 liked it that much I bought it. However I am now experiencing some electrical faults for which I will post later though it is blowing my mind . I am quite handy with the spanners electrics are  my weak  point. I do like a challenge but this is starting to beat me has not phased me one little bit as I know it is a great all rounder for me. So bottoms up and raise a glass and let the good times roll. Please forgive me if I posted this in the wrong place and I promise to do my homework before posting anything else

Hi there and  :400:  to the Forum !

These topics are all dedicated to the new 1215cc Trophy model
released last year, but there is a Section called
"On two wheels - Bikers Chat" and it says,
"Also discuss other models here"

In my experience (I am not a mechanic, but tend to do most of my own work on my motorcycles), most electrical problems tend to be something in the wiring. 

Not knowing anything about your bike or the nature of the problems you are having, I would say the first thing to check is that all ground connections to the frame and battery are clean and tight.  I had electrical gremlins on an old Honda that turned out to be nothing more than some corrosion on one of the ground wires attached to the frame.  Caused all sorts of wonkiness.

Other than that, you should be able to find a shop manual for your bike that will describe how to test individual electrical components to track down a fault.
