    Engine Running Rough

    This is a repost of an issue that I had inaccurately described and with more information. Was riding Sunday and bike was performing flawlessly. Came out of a stop after lunch and after 10 or 15 miles, could tell the engine was running rough- it was like someone threw a switch. No engine or...

    Thread lubrication on engine bolts

    Does anyone lubricate engine and case bolts with an anti seize grease when refitting them after removal and if so what would you use? Copper slip or alumslip (by Molyslip) anti seize compound? Is there a problem with galvanic corrosion when using copper slip on steel bolts threaded in alloy...

    Chirps from the engine while under load

    I've tried using Google, the search here, but nothing comes up. While in gear if I give it a moderate amount of throttle a chirping that increases in volume and frequency with the speed starts up. Sounds like a belt, yet the bike is beltless. Clutch? I don't seem to lose power, but I could be...

    Can anybody recommend a good touch up paint for a black R3 engine. I only seem to find paint that is high temperature and not petrol proof or petrol proof paint that isn't heat proof. I just want to repaint a patch on the timing chain cover where the paint has bubbled up due to corrosion...

    Engine Light On, No power

    I was doing general maintenance when I replaced the shroud over the air cleaner. The screw caught a wire sitting just to the front of the opening and I saw a spark. Immediately pulled wire open (four wires in bundle) finding damage to the red wire. Fixed the wire, checked others and bike...

    Engine oil level dropping.

    This is my 2nd Rocket 3 and if the bike stands for a couple of weeks the engine oil level drops below the baffle plate in the oil tank.

    Engine management light

    This weekend my battery died, replaced with new unit but now when the bike is started - the management light stays on when running. I have not ventured out yet and wondered if this was usual. There were no issues pre battery change. Any advice appreciated..

    Rocket III Engine Swap

    Figured having gone to the trouble of swapping engines, i might as well post up a thread about it with a few pics,, someone might enjoy it :) The manual has a section on engine removal and replace, so no need for any additional guidelines, maybe just a few tips here & there.

    Engine guards and windshield

    Hello all, Going to purchase engine guards for my 2012 Roadster and needing to know do they bolt right up to the bike with no issues. Also, are there any windshield options more cost effective than Triumph that gives good protection and is not huge either. Thanks in advance.


    This morning my 2015 Rocket 3 Touring wouldn't start, the battery was real low, I haven't started the bike for 5 or 6 weeks. It was cold out this morning but later when it was warmer it started it. I rode it about two miles and the check engine light came on. I am trickle charging the battery...
