Question about 2000 Triumph Sprint ST

1 Answer

2001 Triumph Sprint ST 955i, there is excessive heat coming up from the engine on the right hand side. It is so hot that it burned my inner thigh of my right leg. It occurs during highway driving. The engine shows no over heating on the gage. Is there a solution to this? Could I place a thick heat resistant baffle between the frame and the fairing?

This is a common problem with this bike,and does not mean that the engine is overheating.Go to and click on the "mods" link for a solution.
They show photos of the modification which basically consists of installing a mesh screen on the inside of the fairing to channel the heat away from your leg.Also the upper fairing vent is enlarged to aid heat disipation.

Will a Daytona 955i flywheel work on a Sprint St 955i engine

Hi Simon, after careful deliberation 4 out 5 Triumph Gods give this one a thumbs up, but just to be on the safe side you should give your local dealers parts/service department a call to confirm. Good luck and have a nice day.

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.

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.

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.
