I Just got a Trophy...
« on: June 13, 2016, 05:47:39 pm »
It obviously likes me I got it home and don't want to move!

Hi wll just bought a 2000 Triumph Trophy 1200cc...  Now the silly questions will start....

First issue was loss of power on Motorway think its running rough due to old fuel lack of use and carbs needing some cleaning (or use)....   Maybe be missing on 1 cylinder some of the time particularly underload.

May change plugs as do not know when they where done (which type, price or even where they are).

The reason its stopped?  Oil leak when I got home from clutch pressure relief valve...   So no pressure to operate clutch...

Oh and a virtual beer to all.....   Could even be the odd real one if they get me on the road.....


All advice apprechiated I have to get it ready for my misses to go pillion on Saturday week   :156:

So no pressure hey...

Hello one sea and welcome. Although all are welcome this site is primarily dedicated to the 2012 onwards Trophy triple. Some of our members have had and indeed still have the older Trophy so may be able to help specific questions but other than that our help may be limited. If you haven't already you might want to also look at Triumphrat.net which has dedicated threads to the older Trophy model. Kevin

 :400: to the forum.  The TriumpRat forum may furnish more information about your specific ride than you will get here.  There is a Trophy section that is mostly discussion about the earlier version on that forum.

Hi OneSea and :400: to the Forum.

As has been said, 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",
so feel free to participate there, as some of our Members also own the previous Model like yours  :028:

Hi OneSea..

This is THE Premier Forum for the New Trophy (Shaft Drive thang) they won't have much knowledge or experience of the particular foibles of your MkIIa 1200 Trophy...

Looking forward to helping you out

Cheers
