Where is the electrical system chasis ground on a 2000 Triumph Sprint ST? It looks like the negative cable from the battery disappears into the wiring harness. I want to check the soundness of the ground to help solve an intermittent electical problem with my started button.

Comes from the battery negative terminal to frame and repeats at points around frame, ie headstock for electrical fittings. Any proplems just fix a wire from battery neg and put to earth point anywhere you suspect is bad earth. if then works, problem solved.

2008 Triumph Sprint ST cuts out for no reason


Hi, Morne and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery must have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. Faulty alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Faulty main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Faulty system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Faulty ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Faulty CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Fuel tank empty
11. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, or clogged filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Faulty fuel pump.
15. Faulty pressure regulator.
16. Faulty or clogged fuel injectors.
17. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.

My 2011 Triumph Sprint GT wouldn't attempt to start yesterday.There is no reaction to start button and lights don't come on. ABS light flashes slowly.Battery has been charged and ridden weekly.


Hi, Tony 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.

Does the positive on the triumph sprint connect to the neg on the battery


Hi, Kjd1948 not that I am aware of and I don't have the year of your bike but wiring diagrams on a 2002 Sprint show 1 black wire coming from the negative terminal and 2 brown wires coming from the positive terminal any other wires added were after the fact and could be color coded wrong but you would be blowing fuses or melting wires or draining the battery if a true positive source wire was hooked up to the negative post on the battery, trace the wire in question and see where it goes. Sorry, you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Triumph despair not, for a mere $0 you can download another one.

2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. 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.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.

I have had the same stalling problem with a previous Sprint ST coming in to a roundabout. I thought it was just my bike, but it seems a common problem. Could you please offer a definitive solution. IAC...


On my 2000 955i sprint I had the same problem. I took the ignition switch apart and there was a loose wire. I re attached the wire and that solved the problem.

New battery goes flat in single day


check for short circuits. it can be stripped wire that makes contact with the bike chassis. This can drain the battery. Also, Charging circuit may be dead (alternator and regulator).
