    Hello All,

    New to the forum, but long time Triumph owner. Genuinely asking for a friend, who I just spent an hour and a half on the phone with. He's fitted a pair of 20mm bar risers to a 2012 Street Triple R. He took it for a short ride and all seemed fine. He tried to take it out today and after a few minutes running, the engine management light came on and it stalled. Now, if he turns the key the management light comes on and it won't turn over. He says the cables are really tight with the risers on, especially the throttle. Is it possible that one of the cables has kinked or trapped the fuel line, and if it's not that, any ideas? Any thoughts, much appreciated.

    Without seeing the bike it sounds like he's stretched the cables so might be a connector being dislodged etc. Might be an idea to put it back to stock, check the wiring and see what it's like then

    Thanks for the reply. Very possible I suspect, I don't know how rough he'll have been, swapping the risers. I just assumed fuel from the way it stopped itself. I'll pass that on. Thanks.

    He may have pulled a connector out from the wiring. That's first shot. Shouldn't ride the bike with cables that tight, either back to standard or new, longer cables.
