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.

SOURCE: motor turning over slow after rebuilding starter

You may need to check your cables to the starter for high resistance. They are 28 years old, and can get more resistant over time.

G'Day Ben

It could be a buggered starter. They can sometimes pole if the bushs/bearings are worn, and that may not happen till you load it up. I saw the same exact problem as yours with a triumph speed triple recently. It had also mashed up the sprague clutch for the starter. The car battery will always punch more current that a small motorcycle battery, and may even overcome any mechanical bind problems like this, but not on the smaller bike battery. .

Before anything else, I would suggest that you remove the plugs and get a ratchet/socket directly onto the crankshaft and turn it over so as make sure that you dont have a partially seized engine. It should freely turn over with plugs removed.

You have not mentioned it, but did you fully charge the battery when you got it. They are often well below full charge if it has been sitting around for a while.

Dont know how/where you connected the car battery to the starter, but it would pay to check that the selonoid is working correctly and that the connections to it are good. Look for overheating when cranking. It should not get hot from short operation. If the voltage is dropping to 8 volts measured at the battery, you can be pretty much assured that the selenoid is ok. the starter working ok from car battery jumper onto the bikes battery would also tend to indicate that it is working ok.

I would suggest that you have a phone around for an old school auto sparky with a workshop in your area that has a startermotor tester rig that can measure the current draw under load/ test the starter for you. Cheapest way to proceed forward.

Happy to talk to you further bout the problem.

Thanks for using FixYa. A vote from you for the quality of my solution makes answering worthwhile. Cheers mate. Good luck

in what way is it hard to start does the engine turn over fast or slow, fast is low compression in the piston chambers slow can be the battery or the starter motor wearing out. ( starter motor has bushes to turn the motor these wear out and cannot turn the engine over fast enough to start.

1993 Triumph Trophy 900 will not turn over


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 have failed or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

Bike won't start, even though it has a brand new battery. could it be the stater?


Does the engine turn over when you press the start button? If not check and clean your connections at the battery and starter. Check to see if you have power to your starter siliniod and out of the siliniod. If it still wont start turn on the head light and then hit the starter button. If the light goes out you have a wire touching metal some place. You will have to look through the wires to see if you have any exposed. I hope this helps!

Starting issues


replaced with a new one. i hit the start button motor will barely turn over. i am lost. its doing the same thing as the old battery which was new last year. sure culd use some input. almost forgot also tried to jump alsojust dose not have enough balls to roll the moter overit tries but no go.what does it sound like when it is turning over? like the starter motor is really straining, or like the starter motor is really slow and lifeless? is the head light bright or dim? could be the engine is siezing up, but I doubt it. if you try to pop-start it (get it rolling on the street in high gear w/ the clutch in, then hop on and release the clutch), does the engine turn over? I'm willing to bet it's somthing simple, like one of the battery leads or leads to the starter is loose or damaged and not enough current is getting through.,,,
