Yamaha xt125x speedo

Speed Triple 1050 2006 cutting out low revs??

I recently got my Speed Triple serviced and when it came back the tick over kept increasing up to 3000 revs + so I took it back to mechanic who fitted a new idle air control valve. But now it has a very low tick over below 1000 revs and keeps cutting out. mechanic then put new vacuum pipes, temp sensor, synced the throttle bodies, reset the TPS, reset the adaptives, reset idle air control valve, changed map back to original map & sensor. Still no improvement and I cannot use the bike...Help anyone??

Triumph ST 1050 Problem

My Triumph is reluctant to start, then does not run sweetly for first minute or two, then's fine.  New battery 2 months ago, kept on "smart" charger spins the engine well.  Several good doses of injector cleaner and new plugs have made no difference.  Any suggestions?

Speed Triple 09 Starting Problems

Tested battery 14.6 idling. Went for a 70 mile ride and tried to restart as soon as I got home. Nothing. Half turns over and nothing more. Got it on bulk charge now but sure there battery is ok. Triumph garage didn't know what the problem is. This happens nearly every time I stop for petrol but it can be jump started. Edit: It's charged for a feeling minutes and starts again no problem. Any advice would be much appreciated.
