Used bike? If so, how old? Unless there is particulate matter in the fluid I'd guess it's just old or an an odd brand. To be sure, that doesn't explain the surging. My KTM turns the rear brake...

If you haven't already, check the battery connections. For some reason all my Triumphs have had those get loose at one point or another.

Sounds like a loose connection. Check the battery terminals first then the multi-connectors leading to the dash.

Here you go. Sorry about the rotation. You need to remove the shifter shaft, turn the clamp on the gear change shaft 180 degrees. It looks like you may have to adjust the way the shaft attaches to...

I believe if you pull the connector to the shaft and rotate it 180 degrees you will have a standard shift.

At close to 50 yrs riding I would never switch over because I would shift the wrong way in a crucial moment with bad consequences. That's less likely if you have a slipper clutch but still... The...

Poke around for an O2 sensor eliminator, usually a plug that fits into the connector that would have plugged into the sensor.

I got nothing on the ecu flash, reset service warning. It was my understanding that after 2012 or so you cannot use software other than Triumph's own. I would check and see of something else has...

I have one thought and it's probably not a good one. There are different width washers for mounting the sensors to adjust for production variances. It might be that one of yours was set up at the...

Back in the day, i.e., points and condenser day, going with more expensive plugs was often worth it. With modern electronic ignitions, not so much. To be more specific, back in the '70's-80's...

I use this in the belly pan of my track bike with Armour Bodies largely because I still have the cat converter in place. Without that, I don't think a heat shield is necessary.

Probably a bent rotor as noted above. But I have seen MC failures that behave exactly like this.

Unfortunately, it sounds like oil. I would flush the coolant system and keep an eye on it to see if it repeats. And keep an eye on the oil to check for coolant. What year? How many miles? When...

So the right caliper isn't working. Best bet is air on that side. Bleed it and see if you have in increase in braking power. If so, you can call it a day. If not, the next step is to rebuild that...

I'd be very wary of using compressed air with brake fluid in the system. DOT 3/4/5.1 is one of the best and fastest acting paint removers available. Feel free to ask me how I know. I'd also be...

Fluid can get behind them even if they are fully seated. If the lever is squishy, it's air. You'll need to bleed them while rotating the caliper to make sure the inner chambers are higher than the...

Nice. I once made an engine stand for a 2V Ducati out of 2x4's in the shape of an inverted pi symbol. Something like that with unequal 'risers' might work given the dished sump on the 675.

I take it you mean running on two cylinders. Maybe it was and the imbalance caused the noise. Or ingested something that got past the air filter. Or could the sound have been a pre-ignition knock?...
