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

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,

Triumph Daytona 600 will not turn over


Hi, Jordan_x_tur 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.

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!

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.
