Question about 2008 Triumph Daytona 675

Triumph Daytona 675

Have a problem! I have an 08 675 and it wont start. Never had this issue. It's in nuetral, the kick stand is down and the clutch is in. All I hear is a slight clicking noise. Like a contactor is making contact. The battery has plenty of juice. I thought maybe it was the clutch safety switch or the kick stand safety switch. But it is suppose to start if the clutch is in and the kick stand is up. If I hold the ignition switch down and put the clutch in and out the slight clicking noise I was talking about happens every time I put the clutch in. Having that said I dont believe it is the clutch or kick stand safety switch. Any suggestions?

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!

Had this problem yesterday. Checked all over with multi-meter to discover the new solenoid I'd fitted, was defective! (no charge through it).
If the battery has plenty of juice and all you here is the clicking, check the solenoid before the starter motor.. easier to find and cheaper to replace :)

Bump yer bike to get home :)

Hi, my 06 675 does not like de-acceleration. after being in traffic or down a long hill de-accelerating it sputters like mad under 4000 rpm. if I stay above 4000rpm for a bit it will come back to normal. I is also rough and jumpy from de-acceleration to acceleration. I have 40 000klms on it and it has been great.
If anyone can help, thanks. Kvkv

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me". However, there are not that many Triumphs in my country and honestly have not worked on one.

Still, your description could be any of 2 possibilities:

  • starter relay/solenoid; and/or
  • starter motor.
To determine which, jump the 2 big terminals of the starter relay when starting the bike; if the motor turns, the relay/solenoid is defective; if the starter motor does not turn, the starter motor is defective (most likely the carbon brushes).

To determine the location of the starter relay/solenoid, follow the clicking sound.

Of course remote possibilities are alarm/security/immobilizer if installed.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

My 2009 triumph daytona 675 had some melting from the voltage regulator!!! nasty tar like residue all down the bike, so took fairing of and bought a used voltage regulator, turn ignition on and all lights...

Its possible the ignition module has failed caused from the over voltage supply when the voltage regulator overheated.
Have the ignition checked for spark, if this is ok then it has to be a fuel delivery problem which unfortunately could be the ECU.
Hope this helps.

My 2003 955i Daytona speedometer was working fine, last night, the readout just started showing ''0'' regardless of speed. Is there a sensor disconnected/broken and where is that located?

The speed sensor is located in the front wheel. Follow the cable down to the axle. Please post the solution or problem if your figure this out. I been ride for a year now with the same problem. I've not had the time to check out the problem yet myself.
