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

SOURCE: will turn over but not start

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.

SOURCE: Triumph Trident Starting

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.

SOURCE: full rev as soon as fires up, cant shut down

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

How to start Echo ppt-266


Fill with correct fuel/oil mix. turn switch to I. Pump primer bulb 4-5 times. Turn choke on. Pull starter until engine fires. Turn choke off. Pull Starter until engine runs & allow to warm up for 10 secs before trying to engage throttle. If it doesn't start after 3-4 pulls with no choke then try same sequence again. May have to use 1/2 choke after engine fires. If it still won't start then something is wrong with it & it will need to be checked by a service agent.

I went to start my triumph and let it idle for about ten minutes. I began to leave and as soon as I pulls the throttle it died. I then opened the choke and restarted it but as soon as I gave it gas it...


Sounds like its been sitting a while and you have to clean the jets in the carb.

As for the electrical problem.
Sounds like it could be the ignition main fuse. There is a main hot wire off the battery that goes to your ignition switch that is always hot, when you turn your key it sends that power to everything else.
That hot wire has an inline fuse that is not in the fuse box. It probaly blew from trying to start the bike repeatedly and the wires got hot and the fuse blew. Clean your carbs, and check that fuse.

Hi, I bought a used motorcycle (hero honda splendor+), I dont know anything about choke lever. Please tell me what is the use of it ? Advantages & disadvantages of it? And finally which position...


How to use your choke correctly. The choke is only to be used for starting a cold engine. If it is a lever, usually you pull it up for on , and push it down for off. look for some type off arrow, or up & down. To start your cold engine, turn on fuel tap, give full choke, turn key on and press starter or kick start, it is very important that you do not use the throttle while starting with the choke, just turn the key on, and press the starter with full ckoke, and no throttle. Once the bike fires and starts, turn down the choke a little and find a idle, after a few minits, you can turn off the choke and ride off. The use off the choke is only for starting a cold engine.

How do I start rental model 96.


The drill is to pump the primer button about 6 times, set the compression release (if equipped), and close the choke. Turn on the ignition switch and preset the throttle fast idle by pressing a button near the throttle trigger while holding the throttle open then release the throttle while holding the button in. These last two parts are done automatically by the choke mechanism in late model saws. Pull the engine through rapidly until it fires (usually within several pulls). If all this fails, take the machine back and have them demonstrate the start. Hope this helps!

Husky viprating on tick over and now wont start


I think you are saying it sputters but won't run. Once it attempts to fire open the choke or it may flood. My 359 start:
Cold: pull out choke control, pull starter (usually twice) while listening for attempt to start. Once it fires push choke control in and
continue pulling (usually once more).
Warm: pull out choke control (sets fast idle), push choke control in, pull starter.
Page 19 of my manual.

Once flooded these are a bear to start.
