Re: triumph trident 750 '98' starting problem
Classic storage problem is moisture entering, coalescing, condensing in petrol and in electrical circuits what you' v done is right but try WD40 on low & high tension side of ignition and a dose of easy start, once running give a good run and store with cling film over open ports with a acumen type charger left on.

I don't mean to cop out, but I always recommend buying a service manual from say amazon for $15-30 bucks. It's the best money you'll ever spend, lays everything out nice and neat and will keep this awesome ride on the road for years to come.
This is a tall order. Everything about is fine tuned to be the bike youj see. If you change anything, you are really changing everything. If it doesnt fit you, I suggest you look for a bike that is a better fit. Of course, the triumps you have is quite a bike ... itis tall. You might want to consider a Honda Aero or a similar HD, Yamana or Suzuki. I like my Aero.
last year my aura classic 110 has same problem like your at first i thought that my coil is busted due to the symtoms that the engine died after a minute of running then runs again after it cools down, when i test the coil the coil if fine so we decided to open the motor and there we saw that the oil pump is brocken, the oil didnt get high enough and make my engine overheated making my engine stop, i know that we are talking at diffrent kind of bike i just giving my point of view and i hope it help
ok, there is two possibly problems u could be experiencing. ONE: would be a worn out solenoid(needs to be replaced) or TWO: the starter bruckes are worn out so far that it is actually grounding out or they are not conecting to the armature in the starter. this is a relatively easy fix, but to try to find the parts s another story. i would recomend taking it to ur local dealer or a starter repair shop. they will be able to get the parts and fix it for u. my dad works at a starter/alternator repair shop here in chatham ontario.
The only times my 'dent had no acceleration, it wasn't firing on all 3. Easy check: start the bike, let it idle for a couple minutes, spray water from a spray bottle on each header. Chances are, there'll be a cold header from a cylinder not firing due to a bad coil.
