- 96 Triumph Thunderbird Cruiser 900
I have a 96 Thunderbird 900 Cruiser. Due to health concerns the Bike sat for about 18 months. But it had a Stabilizer in the Fuel Tank and I had run the Engine with the Petcock OFF until it stopped think I had run all the Fuel out of the Carbs. When I went back to ride it again I bought a New Battery and it started but would not idle unless I was at 1/2 Choke or more. I took the Carbs off and cleaned out the Float Bowls and cleaned the Jets as the Idle Jets were clogged. It ran better but would not run correctly and barely at all unless at 1/2 Choke. I pulled the Carbs again and took to a local Triumph Dealer and paid them to disassemble the Carbs, Clean, and reset to Factory Specs. It now Idles great but under acceration it seems to run intermittently on 2 cylinders, then 3, then 2, then 3. Do you think I still have Carb problems or do you think it could be Spark Plug Wires or a Coil going bad? Thanks for your help!!!
