1996 trophy shifting problems

Triumph Trophy mailing list
Hi All,  I am having a little problem with my 1996 Trophy 900 and could use some advise.  Short ride today and on return trip the shifting took a turn for the worst.  I can upshift OK but for some reason I can not downshift.  If I accelerate and upshift then sometimes I can downshift a couple of gears but usually can't get down into 1st.  I tried adjusting the linkage but it doesn't really help much.  Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.  Steve

Hey Steve,

Pull the clutch slave and inspect the rod. Make sure its not rusting, etc.
Then reinstall, flush, and bleed the hydraulics. So what kind of oil are
you using? And are you sure it hasen't suddenly become contaminated with
fuel or coolant? Does the clutch still seem to be fully disengaging when
you hold the clutch lever in?

FWIW, mine has been cantankerous on shifting from the day I got her. But
thru the years has remained the same. Once used to the quirks it becomes a
non issue. Basically she is just hard to shift and likes a light preloading
of the shifter prior to up shifting. Plus she just dosen't appreciate
shifting outside of the normal speed range used for whatever gear in
question. Up or down. In my case I suspect all of this is related to slight
damage to a few parts in the gear train.

Let us know what you discover.

Best,
Samuel

Another list member suggested I switch to Amsoil Oil for better
shifting. I wasn't really having a problem at the time but I did notice
an improvement when I switched. Been using it every since.

 Thank you Samuel and Ed I will try these things.  I am due for an oil change so I will be picking up some oil today.  And I will inspect and look everything over this morning.  Here in Ohio the fall will be coming on pretty soon and it would be a shame to miss any of this great riding weather.  Thanks again for your help.  Steve

 Samuel,  I forgot to answer your question but I have never changed hydraulic fluid.  My Haynes manual tells me DOT4 is the hydraulic fluid I use.  I am retired now so I have the time to turn a wrench--I mean when the list on the frig is completed.  Thanks again.  Steve

Incorrect chain tension or a worn chain can induce shifting problems.

Re: 1996 trophy shifting problems

Yes oil does make a big difference. Now that I think about it mine improved
a lot when I switched to full synthetic rotella. I'm sure that banana stuff
is even better as well. Make sure to observe the correct installation
procedure on the oil filter. It makes a difference so refer to an exploded
view. When I first replaced mine the order was wrong. And the large o-ring
which comes with the filters is typically too big. You'll have to pick one
up from the dealer. Or reuse the old one.

Samuel is right, the big o-ring that comes with the filter is too big. I've been re-using the right size o-ring for many oil changes. As for the smaller o-ring that fits on the oil cover shaft, I've been reusing that one also. It doesn't leak so why mess with it. For the difficulty in shifting look at the amount of play in the two ball joints in the linkage.

This is gonna sound weird, but there is a bushing at the pivot point on the
clutch handle that wears out and will not let the clutch operate
properly,,,it is a 4 dollar part and mine was replaced by a Yamaha part,
there is a ton of interchangeable parts on Triumphs...

Strange sounds from 1996 Triumph Trident 900

Triumph Trophy mailing list
I have not taken anything apart yet ... thought I'd ask the group first.  Bike developed a metallic chain like noise with small vibrations during acceleration that sometimes (but not always) occurs after slowing down, turning (mostly right turns). Sometimes, but not usually a slight lag followed by a quick burst then all goes normal. I also noticed when leaning over on a right hand turn a sound of movement within the engine (alternator?) or something flopping to the outside of the engine followed by the sound which then usually goes away when right side up. 
I had no choice but to ride home this way for 400 km. Engine starts fine and performance is fine, shifting is also normal (sprag clutch was done a long time ago and I know the sound so its not that)  I don't suspect the cam chain (but will check the tensioner) as it would have affected the timing and performance if not worst if the chain had skipped.
Any ideas or if anyone has experienced this please let me know.  Riding weather is great here but I'm guessing no more for me this year.

Great info! I'll have to include that in the next parts order.

Thanks,

Strange sounds from 1996 Triumph Trident 900

Triumph Trophy mailing list
In reply to this post by Triumph Trophy mailing list
Check that cam chain. You should not be at the end of the tensioners
maximum extension. Mine stretched so much that the valve timing would lash
back and forth at idle and effect idle stability. Somehow which is beyond
me, it was shot when I purchased her with under 9kmi on the clock. I rode
her for another couple of thousand before replacing the chain, tensioner,
guide, and crank sprocket. I was stunned when compairing the old and new
chains side by side. Remarkably the chain never jumped. The cam sprockets
were still as good as new. Which was not the case for the crank sprocket so
consider replacing it. The guide was also as good as new. But I went ahead
and changed out the one which can be replaced without pulling the head.
These engines even when in proper order are considered noisy. But if I were
you I would inspect the sprag bolts and the cush drive for the alternator
as well. Pull the clutch cover and make sure the basket is not contacting
anything alond the case line while spinning.  It's possible something may
have come loose somewhere.

Let us know what you find.

Best wishes,
Samuel

Re: Strange sounds from 1996 Triumph Trident 900

Thanks Samuel, This will be a winter project ... knowing the delay at getting parts no use in starting now.  I suspect something has come loose ... and will check out your suggestions. I live in Toronto so parts would come in too late to ride this year. Will let you know what I find.Jason

I have not taken anything apart yet ... thought I'd ask the group first.  Bike developed a metallic chain like noise with small vibrations during acceleration that sometimes (but not always) occurs after slowing down, turning (mostly right turns). Sometimes, but not usually a slight lag followed by a quick burst then all goes normal. I also noticed when leaning over on a right hand turn a sound of movement within the engine (alternator?) or something flopping to the outside of the engine followed by the sound which then usually goes away when right side up. 
I had no choice but to ride home this way for 400 km. Engine starts fine and performance is fine, shifting is also normal (sprag clutch was done a long time ago and I know the sound so its not that)  I don't suspect the cam chain (but will check the tensioner) as it would have affected the timing and performance if not worst if the chain had skipped.
Any ideas or if anyone has experienced this please let me know.  Riding weather is great here but I'm guessing no more for me this year.

Hi Jason,  The alternator bolt has broken. What you are hearing is the bolt head is moving over and sliding into the backside of the clutch basket. This is why you hear it when leaning right. It's late I'll write again tomorrow.

Hi Jason,  So how do you know for sure the bolt is broken? You have to take off the alternator. The alternator is spun by the same splined shaft the sprag clutch is attached to. The splined shaft comes in two types. The earlier model had internal threads on both ends. The later model is hollow and uses a long thru bolt with the bolt head on the clutch side and the nut on the alternator side. So when you pull off the alternator if you see a bolt head you have the earlier shaft. The bolt or nut, depending on the type, holds down a 4 paddle wheel with rubber cushions. Is the paddle wheel tight, or will it move in and out. If it moves the bolt is broken. The next thing is very important. DON'T PULL THE PADDLE WHEEL OUT! There is a thicker spacer on the shaft, if you pull out the shaft the spacer will fall down into the engine. Then you'll be in deep doo-doo.
 There is a way to fix this without tearing the engine apart. Okay the clutch and its cover will have to come off. That's not too hard.
 Let me know what you find out when you pull the alternator off.

Thanks Andrew, I have an early version of this engine ... so I'm thinking the bolt is broken. I read somewhere that there was an issue with this in earlier versions. So everything seems to point to looking there first. 
Also seems to me someone on this site had worked out a away to do this repair without pulling the engine apart (or dropping the spacer) . Can someone head me in the right direction?
