Ok... I've acquired a 2009 EFI Speedmaster with 524 miles on it. Yes 524!
So it will turn over but not even a sputter. Just a shot of starting fluid,(I know not good) but it will fire.
I also have an identical bike, 2 months of same build date with working fuels system. So I put my tank in it, still no fuel..
So I'm thinking injectors....
What's my next step with them?
Will injectors come out the top of carb bodies, or do I have to take whole mess out?
I did connect a generic code reader to it. Only thing was ambient air pressure sensor circuit high voltage.

Did it sit for a long time with fuel in it? Sounds like the injectors may be clogged because of the ethanol in the fuel. Cleaning the injectors, and replacing the fuel in the tank, should get you going again. I suggest putting 1 ounce of Lucas Oil Ethanol treatment in the tank with each fill up 1655754577336.png.

I would say it sat with fuel. Original owner was in military, bought new and he got hurt so it sat in his garage till bought by another individual. He started tinkering with it.
Drained tank .
New tires .
Safe start .
AI delete .
Broke a bolt and tap off in exhaust bracket.
Couldn't get to run, so he sold it.

Would you know if injectors will come out with out taking bodies out.
I'm confident it's the injectors being clogged. How would one clean them?
Never messed with any.
Thank you for your comments.

I believe, from what I've read, the injectors can be removed alone. I've never had to do it with my carbureted bikes. I'll leave my guesses out, and let greater experience speak.

The triumph use the carb bodies for EFI throttle bodies.

Hello, I have a 2011 America, same engine (865cc air cooled), I must say I've never had this problem but, I've been working on my own vehicles since 1985. First I'd drain tank and put in fresh gas, clear the codes, then try starting again, then check codes to see if it's still there. If so, change the sensor, clear the code again, try to start. If it starts it's most likely fixed, if not... I've never used the Lucas treatments, I use Seafoam, it's never let me down on gasoline, or diesel engines. I'd pour in maybe a 1/4 - 1/2 cup of Seafoam, turn it over for about 30 sec. a couple times to get the treated fuel into the injectors, then let sit for 24 hours. Try to start it again, even if it does start, let sit 24 more. Then when/if it does it's gonna run rough at first, and smoke like a broke stove, so start it outside, then ride it till it quits smoking bike fixed. Injectors cleaned , I hope this helps.
Ps. I put a 1/4 cup of Seafoam in my bike every spring, and fall, along with Stabil in the fall. Let us know your findings. Ride safe and God bless.
