Question about Triumph Motorcycles
Triumph legend 900tt when starter pressed engine turns freely but wont fire pull choke or open throttle and it seems to kill battery with starter hardly turning engine
You need to explain a little better... do you mean it will only crank properly when the choke is open and the throttle is closed ??? Has the battery been properly charged and tested ??? ( be honest here because we can't help if you don't ) are the battery cable connections is good shape ??? Have you tried spraying some carb cleaner into carbs when cranking ??? I have the same engine on my Triumph

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
You may want to check for the presence/absence of spark. Temporarily remove one of the plugs or use an old but known to be good / spare plug, attach the plug cap, allow the metal end of the spare plug to touch the engine and crank. There should be spark on the gap of the plugs. If not then the problem is in the ignition system. If no spark, try starting with the sidestand folded, clutch lever pulled and ensuring neutral light is lit.
Pls postback results.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

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.

I'll assume you did not mess with the fuel line, the bike is not in need of tuning and the battery is charged. Issue may be something else if the above is not true.
On my 2000 Speed Triple my headlight relay went bad. It left the headlights on when starting. The headlights are suppose to switch off so the startor could get more juice out of the battery when starting the bike.

i have never heard of it not shutting down when the plug cap is pulled.... but clean your carb.... its probably just a stuck float or something really easy to do
