  • Mate have you checked the battery and cleaned all lead ends. Even a new battery is sometimes be defective, have you got a mate with another battery to install to test to see if it is battery!
  • I would try that first if bike runs with another battery then you will know. Cheers

SOURCE: tiger triumph 2008 brand new wont start... help

ok
you have a problem with the starter not turning the engine. so we probily not sending a signal to the starter.
you realy confused me when you started talking about gas and choke?
if the engine doesnt turn over none of this even matters.

these new bikes have many safety features .
you have a sensor for netural and you have a sensor for your kickstand and a sensor for your clutch
and all of these have to be workinf right for your engine to turn over.
so with your kickstand up and the bike in netural and the clutch lever pulled in
it should turn over and start.
when it doesnt you need to check your wiring to the switches one might have come loose.
or could be a bad switch.
let us know what you find

Your starter isn't getting enough power. Try checking your water levels in the battery and charging it with a trickle charger. Good Luck!

SOURCE: 2005 Triumph Daytona 955i Dead Battery and Check engine Light

I have just found my 30 amp fuse blown on my daytona , this prevents the alternator working , it was reading 10.9v before I changed the 30 amp fuse , now it reads 14.5 volts , I think I blew it as I didnt know how to put the alarn into service mode and left the ignition on , anyway I am hoping its just that , 3 heat up/cool down cycles and the engine management light should go out

The starter relay needs replaced. If you follow the + wire from the battery, it goes into a box with a + wire on the other side of it. If you jump power across the two wires, it should start

Not starting off starter but goes with a push


Hi, Malcom Smith famous dirt bike rider extraordinaire 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.

Then I would start with a new battery. They do go bad quickly. You can check your main fuse. What type of bike (brand, model) is it.
But iwouldn't jump it with a car battery. It could make your rectifier/regulator go bad also.

CBR 250 not starting


Sound like you have a fuel problem.Turn the key without starting the bike listen for a slight buzzing noise it will come from where the end of the tank and the seat meet this is the fuel pump priming if you can not hear anything then most likely your fuel pump is not working.Your carbi may have grit in a jet a carbi cleaner can help.
I hope this helps!
