Question about 2007 Triumph Daytona 675

1 Answer

Daytona 675 won't start

Bike has petrol and battery good. Turn on ignition and all looks good. SIdestand up, bike in neutral, clutch in. Press starter and nothing other than a faint click. Has happened once before at a rest stop after a long ride. On that occasion bike started after about a half hour. This time the bike is cold - I just wheeled it out of the shed.

    Went out to the bike this morning and it started just fine. Whatever it is it is not a hard fault.

    I started it a month and a half ago just fine but today I tried to
    start it by turning on the kill switch, inserting the key and turning
    it to on, I herd the fuel pump getting primed ( I my friend likes to
    say, killing the hamster noise ) and when I hit the engine start, for a
    milisecond the started tried to crank, but stopped and the instrument
    panel 'rebooted'. After the panel comes backup, the oil and engine light stay on ( can't remember if this is normal ) and there is a weird
    humming sound that does not go way immediately. Going to call the
    dealer tomorrow.

    Hi my Daytona's fuel pump comes to life when it feels like. Changed it's relays but to no avail, when she does start she misfires could it be the actual pump?

  • perillo Mar 19, 2009

Two possibilities:

  • starting relay. This could actually be bypassed/jumped to determine if the starter motor will turn:
  • starter motor. most likely carbon brush.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

All this effort to beat the system --- by pass the safety features --- why don't you fix what you have, return it to functioning status. You have already exceeded the cost of a actual fix.

Why does the 30 amp circuit breaker behind the battery box on my 1990 fatboy click once when i push the ignition button? The bike won't start.

Try to reset the circuit breaker. also check for an earth fault on the starter motor .If this is not a circuit breaker and is a relay, you should make sure everything is ready for a start, (ie : in neutral, sidestand up and clutch in and that the battery is charged.) the neutral light being "on" doesn't mean it is in neutral. I hope this helps.

Hi!!!!! i have an kawasaki zx6r 1998 and it dosent want to start , i started it 2 days ago, but today it dosent want i charged battery, and when i push start button it dosent do nothing, i checked coil...

Check the clutch, neutral and side stand safety interlocks.
Double check that the bike is in neutral, and the clutch is pulled in when trying to start the bike.
If the bike is in gear with the side stand down, the bike cuts off all ignition.
If the clutch isn't pulled in, the starter won't engage.
Check all these safety interlock switches, and make sure you are in neutral with the clutch in when trying to start the bike.

Just put a new battery in and the bike starts great and runs great but when I put it into gear it dies (yes I am using the clutch). Tried to give it a little more gas before putting it into gear and it...

Okay.....I think you have a sidestand switch problem.
Do you notice that if you leave it in gear after it stalls....that even with the clutch in it won't crank the starter?
The sidestand switch is a plunger that presses in when the sidestand is down. The interlocks on the RS require that to start the bike...with the sidestand down, it must be in neutral. If you place it in gear which the sidestand down, it kills the ignition to prevent riding off and snagging the stand on the road etc..
So if you had the sidestand up before placing it in gear.....since the bike sat for a year...I suspect the plunger for your sidestand switch is stuck partially in (its been pushed in for a year!)
Find the switch down by the sidestand pivot....have someone hold the bike or support it so you can raise the stand, and spray some WD40 on the plunger and work it in and out letting it snap out several times then try it again.

I have replaced the coil, stater, and the brain and i still dont get any spark

You don't mention the year and model...but here are some general ideas.

Most Yamahas have various safety interlocks designed into the wiring system....typically a neutral switch, a sidestand switch and a clutch switch, a tipover switch and a kill switch on the right handlebar.
The design basically is to prevent riding off with the sidestand if the bike is in neutral, the neutral switch grounds to light your neutral lamp and allows for ignition and starter operation.
Is you place the unit in gear...if the sidestand switch senses the stand is still down, it kills the ignition and starter.
If the bike is in gear, starter will not operate, unless the clutch is pulled in and the clutch switch detects this happening.
Tip the bike over and the tipover switch kills the ignition and fuel pump if it has one. the igniter (black box/brain etc) getting supply voltage...if not check the ignition fuse, and the handlebar kill switch .
Is the neutral light working....if not...try starting with clutch in and sidestand up.

I have a 1986 Venture Royal and nothing happens when I press the start button with a new relay and battery with the ignition on

The clutch has to be pulled to start the bike. The clutch safety switch may be broken.
Check the "run/stop" switch as well as the starter button

So I just had this exact problem about an hour ago. I wondered about the starter, crankshaft, etc. but discarded them for the simplest explanation: battery.
I'm sure you've all noticed how absurdly easy it is to mistakenly miss the steering lock and put the parking lights on. Odds are you may have done this without realizing (I must've even if I don't remember). Jumper cables are the answer.
If you've never jumped a bike, here's the skinny: 1) Make sure the car you're jumping from is, and remains, off. 2) Connect the cables as normal; black to black, red to red. 3) Let the bike sit for a minute then start her up. 4) If you can, take her for a ride to get the charge back up.
If this doesn't work, then you may very well have more serious issues. Hope this helps, ride safe!
