Question about Triumph Moto V3 Sport Motorcycles
This bike is brand new, it has never been ridden. I went to start the bike today and it would not start, the engine light comes on. i thought maybe the battery might be low so i have put a battery tender on it to charge the battery but still the bike will not start. what could cause this problem?

you have a problem with the starter not turning the engine. so we probily not sending a signal to the starter.
you realy confused me when you started talking about gas and choke?
if the engine doesnt turn over none of this even matters.
these new bikes have many safety features .
you have a sensor for netural and you have a sensor for your kickstand and a sensor for your clutch
and all of these have to be workinf right for your engine to turn over.
so with your kickstand up and the bike in netural and the clutch lever pulled in
it should turn over and start.
when it doesnt you need to check your wiring to the switches one might have come loose.
or could be a bad switch.
let us know what you find

SOURCE: engine management light
Engine management light was on permernantly after replacing battery, took advice and let bike idle until thermo fan started, turned bike off and let thermo fan stop, restarted bike and engine management light went off. this proceedure resets engine management system. GREAT ADVICE thanks.

Are the electrics still Lucas, the prince of darkness? If so, go thru the whole ignition system, track the circuit to the plugs. It may be as simple as a weak battery, closed points, or funky plugs. Start there, and a bad condenser can stop you, too. I've only seen one bad condenser,but you may have the next. Take the plug out and hold it to the motor and check for spark while spinning the motor. With the other plug out it will spin easier. Check both, if you have two coils.

SOURCE: oil light on - bike won't start
Does it turn over? If so, fill with correct oil (read owners manual), and try restarting.
Make sure the battery is charged, and if it just 'clicks' and doesn't turn over, your engine may be siezed from the lack of oil. In that case, it is a paperweight.
One of the first rules of being a motorcyclist is to know as much about your bike as possible BEFORE you ride. Always check tire pressure, fluids, brakes, lights, wheel bearings, etc. before you even think about getting on a bike. Anything that goes wrong with a bike while you are riding it, could endanger your life (much more so than a car).

I have just found my 30 amp fuse blown on my daytona , this prevents the alternator working , it was reading 10.9v before I changed the 30 amp fuse , now it reads 14.5 volts , I think I blew it as I didnt know how to put the alarn into service mode and left the ignition on , anyway I am hoping its just that , 3 heat up/cool down cycles and the engine management light should go out
