hope someone can help me out. I have a 73 Triumph Tiger 750. I was driving totally fine in the city for months and I took it on the highway, drove very well, then about 20 minutes at 100kmh it just died!
I pulled in the clutch to roll onto the shoulder and geared down to second gear and let go of the clutch to try to fire it back up, nothing. it turns over fine.
I kicked and kicked.
spark plugs were not black and not too light a brown, and weren't wet so I dont think it was flooded or anything.
Battery was at 12.55 volts, but corroded on BOTH terminals AND at the fuse...i disconnected it all and cleaned the contacts...still nothing.
had to tow it home, it sat for a few days but still won't start...not even hesitate to start. but the compression sounds good, it turns over.
when I prime it, fuels spills out momentarilly...
could it be fuel starvation? carb problem? what kind of problem could this be? why would the terminals be corroded.
73 Triumph Tiger Died On Highway!
