    New Trophy owner in Philly Burbs

    I recently picked up a silver '99 Trophy 1200 and am just starting in on a general service both to familiarize myself and to know the bike has been given a good going over from front to back. This bike although running, has what sounds like the usual Trophy gremlins such as difficult to start, rough idling, coughing while idling, etc.  I have been searching and reading a lot ... so I believe I am off to a good start on troubleshooting these issues. I will post specific questions as I have them if I can't find appropriate answers first, but for now just wanted to introduce myself.

    I have been riding well over 20 years now and have a few bikes at this time including an '81 Honda CBX1000 and an '82 CB900F.  I chose the Trophy based on the following criteria ... Good value, relatively inexpensive, comfortable more upright seating position, touring bike that would also be fun in the twisties. I narrowed my choices to the older ST1100, Councours1100, and the Trophy.  I happened across this silver 1200 and went for it.  Looking forward to see where this adventure takes me!

    Hi Izzy and :400: to the Forum !

    This Forum is dedicated to the "new" Trophy model ( 2012 onwards ), although everyone is welcome here,
    and discussions on Triumph Models other than the "new" Trophy can ( and should - to avoid any confusion )
    be held in this Section : "On Two Wheels - Bikers Chat"

    There is also another Forum dedicated to the previous Trophy Model,
    that you might find more helpful if you Google "triumphrat.net/trophy 3 & 4"

    Cheers  :821:
