Question about 2007 Triumph Speed triple

2 Answers

The bike is a stock 2007 and has 3000 miles on it. I replaced the battery 2 monthes ago (replaced original 2007 battery). I rode down the road for ten minutes, stopped and turned the key off (not tthe kill switch) and then 5 minutes later i turned the key on and i had zero power to the display (anything for that matter). I checked the fuses beneath the seat and they all look good. Whats wrong!?

    It is a new battery, I spoke to the dealer I bought the bike from and they (service manager) said there is a fuse near the solenoid. Iguess i should be asking does any one know of a fuse besides what is under the seat?

    I checked all fuses beneath the seat and they appear to be fine. I placed a volt meter on thebattery and it read 12.4v.... iturn the key on and the volts trickles to zero in a matter of seconds.

Did you get one of those gel batteries? Did you charge it up overnight when you put the gel in it? Or did the shop do it? You can't check the gravity in that battery, but you can in the old acid battery. If it is an acid battery, get one of those floaty ball things and check the electrolytes in each cell. One bad cell, no good. I have seen many brand new batteries be, No good. So, check that out, if the batteries check out, how about the terminals? clean? Do you have an anti theft device? How about the reset key?? I don't know what happened, but I am hoping it is just the battery. Hope this helps.

Most batteries are dry charged to only about 60 % prior to shelving. You may have had one that was much lower. Your ride could have just drained it down.

You should pull the battery and check its state of charge with either a load tester at a parts store or buy a specific gravity meter *( cheap also at parts store). Make sure the battery is fresh, new and fully charged!

You key off should have been enough shut off everything. You can also use a multimeter if you suspect a short causing excessive battery drain.
Run it inline with the ground wire and set your meter for microamps.
Make sure everything is off. You are looking for a small drain. If you meter goes offscale then you know you have something bigger to deal with.

Keep me posted!

    If just turning the key on draws down the voltage that bad you are probably just reading something called surface charge. The battery has 12 volt potential but very little amperage.



    You should fully charge the battery and try that test again.



    Also, do a load test of the battery with the bike running. You should just ride to a carparts store that has a load checker and test it for free. Call around the parts stores and find one. You can see if the charging system is on at all by just reading the voltage while the bike is running. It should be well over 13 volts....more like 14-15 volts if its putting out enough to cover the bikes needs and recharge the battery.

Speedometer cut off then back on later


Check the magnetic end of the speedo sensor. This is the part that goes into the transmission. If the end is covered with metal filings, clean them off and reinstall the sensor. Ride the bike and check to see if this solves your problem.

Battery going dead


The battery regulator may not be functioning properly. At times it will send a charge to the battery and at times it won't. This is normal, but if it is not allowing the battery to receive current when it should then there is a problem. Another possibility is a loose connection in the wiring. I would check the connections first.

Replaced battery, bike cranked, after riding 4 miles, just ticks


check battery leads (both ends) , Then make sure battery is charged 100% (verry important) Get out your (Digital) volt meter set it to DC volts Connect leads to the Battery, it should have at least 12.6 v , Watch meter and start engine, if meter drops below 10.0 volts your battery may be weak and will have to be replaced, or your starter is'nt mechanicaly efficient and will have to be fixed or replaced. While engine is running note voltage should be 12.6-13v volts, then rev engine to 3000 RPM , meter should read 13.5- 15 vdc. If not you have a problem with your stator or regulator/rectifier.
