2008 Models

  • Each of the three 2008 models (Rocket III, Touring and Classic) had a liquid-cooled, dual-overhead-cam inline three-cylinder 2294cc engine. The Rocket III--with a base a base MSRP of $14,999--weighed 704 lbs. with gas and produced 140 bhp at 6,000 rpm and 147 foot-lbs. of torque at 2,500 rpm. The Touring edition had an MSRP starting at $16,999 that increased to $17,299 and had two-tone paint. The Classic edition had an MSRP of $15,699 and focused around "laid-back" ergonomics, as stated by Triumph, and had identical performance as the Rocket III.
2009 Models
  • The same models from 2008 carried over into 2009. The Rocket III, Touring edition and Classic edition also have the same performance specifications as the 2008 models respectively.
2010 Models
  • The Rocket III Roadster edition released for the first time in 2010. Triumph labeled it by saying, "[The] Roadster moves out of pure cruiser territory and transcends into that of the ultimate muscle street fighter." The Roadster is available in metallic or matte black. MSRP for the Roadster is $13,999. Powered by a 2294cc inline three-cylinder motor, which produces 146 bhp at 5,750 rpm and 163 foot-lbs. of torque at 2,750cc, the Roadster brakes with Nissan four-piston fixed calipers equipped with a Nissan anti-lock braking system (ABS) to the front and Brembo two-piston floating caliper with Nissan ABS to the rear. Filled with gas, the 2010 Roadster weighs 807 lbs.
    For those interested in touring, the 2010 Rocket Touring edition comes standard with a headlight, luggage rack, adjustable passenger backrest, adjustable highway peg mounts, Roadster windscreen, auxiliary lamps, quick release sissy bar and aesthetic upgrades like drilled oval mirrors. MSRP for the Touring edition is $16,999 or $17,299, with two-tone paint. The Touring edition does not come standard with an anti-lock braking system. Weighing 869 lbs. filled with fuel, the Touring edition produces 105 bhp at 6,000 rpm and 150 foot-lbs of torque at 2,000 rpm.

Hi, the problem lays with your side stand switch. This is designed to stop us riding off with the stand down. When the switch plays up the safety still works with the stand up. Try giving it a good clean and spray with WD40. It gets covered in crud from the chain lube.

Sounds like a detached connector or a blow fuse. First open your user manual, locate the fuse holder and dbl check the fuse... You have two circuits, the On circuits, and the accessoiry (wich are not essential) seems that you lose the accessory...

SOURCE: 883 sportster with no electrical power

Sounds to me like you've got a security system problem. It's strange that you have power to the switch and fuses and then it stops. You do have power to the fuses don't you. You said you had continuity but you didn't say you had power. I've looked at the latest schmatic that I've got (1999-on) and I don't see anything that would stop everything from working on your bike. Now, Harley may have changed something and my schematic doesn't show it but I would think you would have something showing that the security system had everything locked out. Sorry I couldn't help.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Rocket 3 wont start. dials dead

Lift the tank. Underneath it you'll find a plastic connector block joining loads of wires together. Turn the ignition on and push this connector block together, or twist it around a bit. If the ignition sequence starts, it'll be because the wires in the connector block are corroded. Moving the block sometimes makes a temporary fix, but ultimately it'll happen again until the block or the wiring harness ideally, is replaced.

My 2011 Triumph Sprint GT wouldn't attempt to start yesterday.There is no reaction to start button and lights don't come on. ABS light flashes slowly.Battery has been charged and ridden weekly.


Hi, Tony and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

Poor connection either at the starter, battery, alternator, or loose engine ground strap. Fully charge the battery also.

I have a 2004 Kia Sedona. It will not start.


Hi Michelle, if this is a fully charged new battery fitted then the problem is the connection from the battery, check the earth strap is making a good contact on the chassis and the terminals are connected correctly and making a good contact with the battery posts!

Triumph Sprint GT complete loss of all power


Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. Faulty ignition relay.
14. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
15. Check for engine trouble codes.

Starter will not engage, acts like not enough power from the battery


A test for a battery drain in the vehicle is to place a test light between the battery positive terminal and the battery positive cable,with the cable disconnected from the battery.If the test light glows bright you do in fact have a power drain.Pull one fuse at a time until the test light goes dim or off and then you will know which circuit is draining the battery.If no fuse removal dims the light,then disconnect the alternator output wire to check for a bad diode draining the battery in the alternator.Do not open doors or trunk etc and cause a accidental drain masking the real drain.DO NOT try to use any accessory or start the car with test light connected.

The van wont start, no lights on dash except for the seatbelt and open door light. when you turn the key it makes a click in the dash. the battery is fully charged and the terminals are tight.


How do you know the battery is good, fully charged may not be the case if the battery has a failed internal post connection. Have the battery load tested at a shop or a parts store.

Will not start there is no juice going from the battery to the engine at all the lights will not turn on or the horn won't blow nothing works at all


did you changed the battery ? and then it did not start, how do you know that it is fully charged.
well lets assume that you are right, get a test light, start by putting one end to the battery positive +, the other end touch the engine block, valve cover what ever is metal on the engine, if comes on you are ok is far is the battery, then if ok, open the fuse box next to the battery and look for a main fuse, 80 or 100 amp, if you cant see inside, or you cant pock it, pullet out, ground one leg on the body any were, and touch the other leg with the test light, if it light up is ok, if you can pocket, the test light mast light up when you hook up the test light alligator to ground. and continue testing all the big fuses, also look at the battery + terminal may have a little box on top with 1 or 2 fuses, main fuses, check them the same way, both side of the fuse must lit up, if one side does not lit up, you have a open main fuse. good luck.

Hi, Motoman774 if you suspect a faulty ground cable you can always add another generic cable of the same gauge and ground it to the frame or engine to validate your suspicions also before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced.

Wont start ,no turn over ,just lights and horn


I would suspect a bad battery. I'd take the battery out and take it to an automotive parts store. Ask them to "load test" the battery for you. If you don't have a parts store that will do this for you, charge your battery fully. Then put a volt meter across the battery terminals, red meter lead to positive, black meter lead to negative. The function switch of the meter should be in DC Volts, 25 volt or greater range. The meter should read about 12.8-13.2 volts on a fully charged battery. Now turn on the ignition switch and press the start button. If the battery voltage drops below 10 volts, the battery is bad.
