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, Porl and the usual suspects are:

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.

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,

Bike wwould not run today without choke pulled all the way out. yesterday much colder choke only half out then pushed in when warm....bike did sit for 5 yrs. added seafoam and 92 octane fuel yesterday...


You are correct, the mixture needs altering.

Start up with the choke in position were it will start, run a few minutes to warm up engine.

Turn mixture screw all the way in, don't screw hard in (Gentle) could damage screw seating, listen to engine when it starts to faulter gradually turn screw out, listening to the engine sound till she is running smooth on tickover. Reve up quick shut down on throttle, and if setup correctly should return to tick over without stopping. Lucky person.
