Question about 2000 Triumph Sprint ST

1 Answer

1998 Triumph Sprint Ex had stalling problems. It would just shut off, anytime. If I just pulled in the clutch it would spin but not start. When I turned key off, and then on, it would start right up and run great...for a while. Now it will not start at all. It has been to the dealer twice for a tune of 1,500.00 and I can't do that again. I have check the kick stand switch, Crank sensor, battery terminals and even the key switch. the only thing I did not check or chenge is the black box. Thank you

It was as simple as a fuse. The high beam fuse is tied into the starter! Thanks for all of the suggestion!

So I just had this exact problem about an hour ago. I wondered about the starter, crankshaft, etc. but discarded them for the simplest explanation: battery.
I'm sure you've all noticed how absurdly easy it is to mistakenly miss the steering lock and put the parking lights on. Odds are you may have done this without realizing (I must've even if I don't remember). Jumper cables are the answer.
If you've never jumped a bike, here's the skinny: 1) Make sure the car you're jumping from is, and remains, off. 2) Connect the cables as normal; black to black, red to red. 3) Let the bike sit for a minute then start her up. 4) If you can, take her for a ride to get the charge back up.
If this doesn't work, then you may very well have more serious issues. Hope this helps, ride safe!

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.

Triumph trident 93 model side stand works as it should but warning stays on with stand up john


Hi, John either the switch is faulty or the circuit is grounded to the light that being said the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.

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.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

Powers on but will not start


Ok not much to go on but is it in neutral? go check. I spent a day trouble shooting because I left it in gear. On a Triumph Sprint you need to pull the clutch in also.

2000 Triumph Sprint RS idles high


Sounds to me like one of three possible problems, or some combination of them.

1) Loose or damaged vacuum hose to the MAP sensor. Check all the hoses to your throttle bodies.

2) Bad O2 sensor. Use multimeter to check or take to the dealer (or buy and use Tuneboy.)

3) Throttle Bodies need to be synced. Again, requires trip to dealership

Hi, Motoman774 if you suspect a faulty ground cable you can always add another generic cable of the same gauge and ground it to the frame or engine to validate your suspicions also before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 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 type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
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 have failed or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

Will a faulty ignition switch stop the battary from charging.alternator,r/r,battary are all fine.Its a 955i triumph sprint st and the year is 1998


A guess. If you are running on "start" you might not be charging. But then, if you are running on "Start" I would suspect the starter would also be running. You didnt say this was the problem.

Is your battery going dead? Your alternator is putting out? Check the rectifier.
