    Hi All, just got this 2001 tt600 a couple of weeks ago.
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    it came with all the plastics, some with minor damage .
    missing a bunch of parts mainly fuel/air side of things.
    got lucky and snagged a small hoard of parts relatively local .
    (airbox,clocks,exhaust,seat,lights,ecu,regulator,front end minus the wheel,swingarm,rear wheel,brakes front and back, switch gear and some other bits and pieces)all for $100.
    still need a tank and its fuel pump etc,
    both foot pegs and hangers .
    muffler/end can.
    a lock set inc tank cap
    i see the "speed four" share a lot of parts but the gas/petrol pump seems different as in the connections on the base plate ,if some one could educate me that would be great.
    so i will be post pics and asking questions as i go.
    cheers mark

    Cor blimey...I hope you got plenty of spare time and deep pockets...
    It's a great feeling you get when you manage to get a part fitted and working properly though...
    I wish you all the best with it..
    Keep us posted with plenty of photos...

    Usually there is more but it may well be it. Phone any good auto key manufacturer and they will soon have you sorted or take the ignition switch to them.
    Happy New Year.

    Those things must be a bit a rare beast these days. I can't remember the last time I saw one.

    MARK:'I have a bit of locksmithing background. Take the key or the lock and that number to a well equiped "automotive oriented" lockshop. The keyblank has to be matched up, and the number should tell the locksmith what the cut should be. Also, the local.Triumph dealer may be able to supply either the key or at least a blank key to cut a new one. I wish you success. ...J.D.

    I CHECKED THE gearbox oil on a paddock stand and the PO had filled it to the brim when on the side stand.
    i emptied 2 gallons out and replaced it with the standard 1 gallon .

    well i thought i had got a great deal on a NIB OEM silencer.
    but alas it was mis described and is for the 2003/2005 600/650 daytona.[​IMG].
    the return shipping is more than i want to pay so option 1 make a short strap/bracket and us it might need remapping but probably not.
    option 2 shelve it and there is a scorpion aftermarket can for a reasonable price.on flea bay.
    also i searched for footpegs and a right side hanger(mine is damaged) to no avail so will attempt to effect a weld/re machine repair.
    fitted a generic left peg after making a couple of nylon bushings .
    right side is welded ready for abuse on the mill.

    With all the chit chat lately about engines as coffee tables and engines as works of art for your living room I have to say that exhaust looks pretty smart as a talking point on your desk there...

    Next question,,i have 2 electrical plugs under the tank area both have 2 wires
    #1 has orange with black stripe and plain orange wires.
    #2 has thicker wires yellow with orange stripe and plain brown.
    i think one goes to the air sensor under the airbox dont know what the other goes to maybe a code reader ?.

    Yep, I have one of those too. Great bike to ride, though the gearbox is a bit pointless ratio wise. It seems to make no discernible difference if you are in 4th 5th or 6th they are so close together. Minor thing really though given how well it goes, handles and stops.

    hi All ,
    well i got a tank and fuel pump assembly throttle position sensor and was able to give it a try starting .
    no joy .. it will start and rev then die if i use some starter fluid .
    but the best i can get without is sounds like its running on 2 cylinders and will not rev and will not idle.
    i got this as a basket case so not suicidal
    any help is mucho appreciated.
    thanks mark

    I have a similar problem with my 2001 sprint st 955i...
    Was using way too much fuel and still is...smells like petrol is leaking all over the place but it isn't...
    I ended up replacing the fuel rail and injectors which helped a lot..
    Every now and then it sounds like its only running on number two and three and its very noticeable...down pipe on number one/ master cylinder will be way cooler than two and three..I've just bought a new ignition coil to see if that makes a difference but unfortunately I can't try it out yet as my bike is still in bits..let me know if you manage to resolve the issue before I do as I'm very interested to know what causes this myself....
    Good luck and keep going at it...

    As I understand you can send them to be cleaned and set up right if they are not spraying the correct pattern but I just bought a whole replacement fuel rail with injectors attached thinking at least one of them must be ok out the three..as it was all three were perfect so it was easier to just swap it over...
    Big difference straight away....
    I don't know how to overhaul them myself....
