Triumph bonneville check engine light issue

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?

SOURCE: tiger triumph 2008 brand new wont start... help

ok
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: BIKE STARTED WENT FOR A RIDE,WOULDN'T START AGAIN

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).

As this point you can't get the bike to turn over is this correct? If the engine is turning over but won't start then yes the gas is most likely the problem. Gas after sitting for even a month can evaporate from the fuel system and it leave a fouls smelling deposit behind that clogs up everything. It stinks and it's a mess to clean out. To prevent this from happening use a product that is called "Fuel Stabilizer" in the last few tanks of gas before you put the bike away for the winter or a dormant period. If the motorcycle is in a hot climate or heated garage this foul smelling gas can happen within a few weeks.

New battery will not start bike after a week. ridden daily


Check your brakelight wire and make sure switch is letting light go off. There is a power drain causing your battery to go dead. Also if you have any accesories make sure they don't use power when bike ignition is off. :)

Basicaly brand new cr25o mx bike wont start


Assuming you are using fresh gas. Check to see if gas is coming out of the line, if not blow back up into the tank and if that works there's dirt in the tank. Check the spark by removing the plug and kicking it over with the plug touching the engine, look for spark. If no spark, try a new plug, if still no spark, you have a stator problem. It wouldn't hurt to clean the air filter in any case. Good luck!

Oil light on - bike won't start


I will guess that your bike cut off when you put it in gear because you still had the kickstand down. That is normal, it is a safety feature to keep you from riding away with it down and crashing when you make a left turn and the kickstand hits the ground.

To check your oil you have a sight glass. Stand the bike straight up and down and have someone look in the sight glass, it is probably on the lower part of the bike on the right side. The oil level should be above the middle, but not covering the whole glass.

Try this process. Go out to the bike, turn on the key and put it in neutral. Check your kill switch, make sure that is in the run position. Now try and start the bike and report back with what happens.
Does it turn over but won't start?
Does it refuse to turn over?
Do the lights come on the instrument cluster for a few seconds, then go out except for the low oil pressure light (normal for that to stay on unless the bike is running.

Will not fire


When you turn the key, do all of the little lights on the tach light up and stay lit before you try the starter ? I ask because my key-switch has become a little fickle this year. Sometimes when I turn the key, I can hear the electronics going through the pre-start sequence, but, only one little light on the tach comes on, and then I know that it's gonna act up a little. When that occurs, the engine will crank but will not start. Have to turn back the key and do a little jiggle and wiggle of the key on the tumblers while turning the key to get everything working
