Well lads - does anyone know of a mechanic who dabbles in Triumphs at all?
More specifically a Sprint.

Preferably in the Dublin area.

It's running really rough from idle up to about 2500rpm.

It's had a dignostics check - no errors.
Also had the TPS reset - that seemed to work but after a couple of days it went back to rough again.

It's really doing my head because I commute through the city so i spend a fair bit of time in the 0-2500rpm range.

Did you check your throttle balance/MAP values?

04-08ish Rocket IIIs had a primary TPS that would go faulty, wonder does the sprint have the same part

The engine map was reloaded and the TPS reset. No joy.

You can do it with the software used to set TPS / ISCV reset, and load maps.

The aim is, if the MAP sensor was seeing low vacuum/high pressure, due to vacuum leak, it will over fuel causing shit running.
Throttle balance being out will too

The original Map was reloaded, TPS / ISCV reset all done.
Didn't fix the problem...

Yeah but I'm asking if you've checked throttle balance/MAP values

Also if it might be a faulty TPS

Gotcha - no point in resetting the TPS if that's what's faulty
