In 2004, released a new 2053cc vTwin (complete with a pushrod, pin engine and belt drive, a Harley) and Triumph released a 3-cylinder bike. Looks the curve needs to start up faster.

Model History and Issues (I am responsible for all errers. me if I’m wrong)

History: Why the wheel. Just go here. Magna Owners of Texas)

Starter Switch failure. 1992-2003 Magnas (3rd

Frequency: Occasional reports.

The only part that to be replaced it the switch assembly. You can try it as well.

Temp Fix: starter switch cover, electrodes with screwdriver to There are two sets of contacts in the assy, one for the headlight and one for the starter When the button is pressed it the headlight offline so the starter gets all the juice, when you let the go the spring returns the plunger to the online position.

Headlight switch may or may not come back on; you have to verify.

Issue: engine. Affects 1992-1994 supposedly only at top-end. Was to be fixed, but I know my 1996 has the problem when idling.


How To Tell: Mine it sporadically at idle (some it knocks, most day sit doesn’t). One way to is if you lean the bike to the right, and the gets worse. Straight up is and leaning to the left the noise is gone.

Temp Fix: Thinner or Lucas Oil Stabilizer.

Solution: issued a September 1994 bulletin to fix this. Drill extra oil passages.

1996-2003 Rear Chain Drive: side has 16 teeth, rear has 40 teeth stock..

Ignition Upgrades : Why does a bigger give you more power your gasoline? Here’s a sense way to think about it: two cylinder motorcycles get to 1100cc is 550cc per cylinder jug), switch to 2 spark plus per chamber. Why would they do when it means a more system? First, remember physics gas laws:

¤ Pressure * = k (fixed constant) * Temperature

¤ As the goes down, pressure and increase.

¤ When the spark it makes a huge percentage in pressure. The higher the pressure is at the more power you get. efficient the conversion from fuel to physical motion.)

¤ think of a huge 550cc jug at max and slow down time the spark makes a fire burns outward to the cylinder rapidly, and and engines turn

== Motorcycle with Single per cylinder: In the motorcycle example, a spark fires and starts the cycle in the fuel around it. causes heat-expansion of the fuel-air and and the piston is pushed down as the starts burning out from the point. As piston moves compression decreases and the continued is less efficient at providing than the initial spark.

In addition, not all of the fuel is burned. In a the longer it takes to burn the the less efficient the process is.

== with Multiple plugs per Using the same motorcycle jug, think of splitting the head into two halves. Now put one plug in the center of each giving you two evenly spaced plugs per chamber. At max compression, halves of the chamber are sparked, ignition.

Compared to the single plug, twice as much is started at the high compression providing quicker burn, expansion and more power. In more fire in the same of time means more fuel is burned.

Power: How can I get power out of my engine?
