Water is getting into your ignition coils.
Trace the spark plug lead up to the coil.
Get some ignition sealer spray and spray loads of it on the leads and coil.
When a bike is new, it is sealed. After washing with detergents it gets washed away. Spray the leads and coil once a week to keep them totally dry.
An immediate way to get round when wet is to spray wd40 on the leads and coil, it should start straight away.
But, don`t spray ignition sealer on until it is totally dry.
Hope this helps

Hi, Hittis and the usual suspects are:
1. Engine oil level and SAE weight are too low or not circulating.
2. Insufficient or blocked air flow over the engine.
3. Heavy combustion chamber carbon deposits.

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.

2004 triumph thruxton 900 won't start. Has does not have spark. then it does have spark then it starts.already checked ingintion, igniter and coil. If you mess with the key enough it will start but...


Dont you just hate the intermitent faults? However messing with the ignition should have no bearing on the fault, other than the connection plate inside the switch has become corroded or worn away, have you removed or replaced the switch? Ifyou remove the switch and dismantle the base carefully to check for ware or corrosion, this can normaly be repaired by using a file or some heavy sandpaper to clean the contact plate, igniter units either work or they dont,

Motorcycle failure in wet weather


Probably a loose or dirty connection in the wiring. Pull the gas tank and check all connections including the spark plug connection. You may want to put a more waterproof spark plug cap on the bike. If you can find it, get a can of LPS 1 and spray all wire connections, ignition coil and even inside the flywheel.

LPS1 is a di-electric. It will not harm electrics. Sprayed on ignition points, you can run a water hose on them while the motor is running and it won't miss a beat. I didn't believe it so I tried it. Works great! Google ' LPS lubricants ' for a source. Yes, I know it says lubricants. It is a di-electric lubricant. Try it.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Gearbox problems


I have a 2004 Rocket with 38,000+ miles and have never had any mechanical issues. There are others who have though. I don't think it's so common that everyone should be worried, but it is something to be aware of. Triumph didn't cover any of the cost? I know it's a 4 year old bike, but Triumph has been covering atleast the parts cost for similar repairs and they have an upgrade kit that addresses tranmission issues, a replacement lower timing chain gear, timing chain adjuster and other issues.
