fuel tap issue

Triumph Trophy mailing list
Hi, I don't appear to be getting fuel on both the "reserve" and "on" options. The bike runs fine on prime though. Any suggestions? Do I need to give the tap a clean?

Check for vacuum leaks on the carbs and to the tap! May also have a hole
in the diaphragm of the fuel tap causing it to not open on those
settings. The prime setting requires no vacuum.

Giles, in addition to Ed's post, check that your vacuum hose is not kinked against the frame backbone where it comes off the petcock. That could block out enough vacuum to prevent the tap opening.

 Cheers,

Hi Giles,
I'm going to bet that the vacuum hose is kinked or that you have a broken outer diaphragm on your fuel tap.  First, check the vacuum line to make sure it's connected correctly and not kinked.  You can try sucking gently on it to see if that makes the fuel tap work correctly. If you get gasoline when you suck on it, then you need to rebuild.
