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

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

Hi, the problem lays with your side stand switch. This is designed to stop us riding off with the stand down. When the switch plays up the safety still works with the stand up. Try giving it a good clean and spray with WD40. It gets covered in crud from the chain lube.

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.

You can find info from the user manual here, page 32, but on brief.look for a key lock on the panel work near the right rear shock absorber. Use the ignition key. there is often a user manual under the seat also for your reference. Cheers

Rocket Three Triumph 2008 doesn't always crank when press start button. Please send possible causes.

Hi, Wayne my money is on # 6 or # 7 otherwise the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check 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.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

Over filled tank on my rocket 3 now she is running rough and back firing, all was fine for around five min after starting?

Problem is that you have got blocked breather on tank causing a vacuum stopping the flow either drain some fuel off or have the bike running without cap on

How can you tell if triumph rocket 3 is overheating

at idle,not moving,which is when bikes like to overheat, most bikes will mis-fire, idle ruffly and even black smoke.putting on open pipes and not re-jetting the carbs will cause it to overheat

Rocket 3 wont start. dials dead

Lift the tank. Underneath it you'll find a plastic connector block joining loads of wires together. Turn the ignition on and push this connector block together, or twist it around a bit. If the ignition sequence starts, it'll be because the wires in the connector block are corroded. Moving the block sometimes makes a temporary fix, but ultimately it'll happen again until the block or the wiring harness ideally, is replaced.

Lower 2008 triumph rocket touring?

You need a rear suspension lowering kit, made in UK for loadsa different bikes

Truimph rocket 111 idle problem.Have already had the recall completed (re-map computer)

triumph is aware of the problem and dealers are to perform an adaptation on it under warranty if the customer complains. if adaptation is not done correctly it will not take. they have to plug it in with the activa (triumph) tool, check for faults, ideally reset the tps and ics stepper renew before doing the adaptation. which is basically....resetting the fuel map in the ecu at which the bike is allowed to idle for ten minutes Without touching the throttle so that the ecu can reference optimal running conditions allowing steady throttle and ease of start up. known as power down.
i believe it's triumph service bulletin........sb187
