Try giving the bars a wiggle and unlock it at the same time. You havent got a tank cover fitted? They can restrict the steering enough to make it tricky to unlock.

YA MY 97 LUMINA WONT TURN OVER EVERYTHING ELSE WOTKS THO, MY LIL KID HUNG ON MY IGNITION WITH THE KEYS IN AND TURNED TO THE ON POSITION I CAME BACK AND KEYS WERE ON THE FLOOR, COULDNT EVEN PUT KEY IN


How would you get your ignition to turn the engine over without a key?

If the ignition key is damaged or the lock cylinder is damaged and you can't get the key in ignition lock...start there. Is the key broken off in the ignition? Please provide some more information as the description of your problem doesn't make much sense.

2008 Triumph Street Triple won't start


Hi, Cbitt331 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.

Hi, Suntaster66 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, your battery may show 12.5 volts but has little or zero amps and must be replaced.
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.
5. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
6. FOB battery low or dead.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Faulty starter button.
9. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
10. Security alarm needs a reset.
11. Starter relay, solenoid or wiring faulty.
12. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
13. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
14. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
15. Check for engine trouble codes.

I have an 06 speed triple, some mornings (especially when the weather is cold)it just wont start. It turns over ok for a few turns than nothing. I than have to turn off the ignition wait a few seconds...


have you tuned it up recently? its hard to tell if a bike is tuned on a nice day, only when it gets cold does it start to show. try changing the plugs, air filter, oil and filter, and put a little seafoam in the gas (about an eighth of a bottle to a tank- do this every fill up until the bottle is gone) also, drain your carbs and let them fill back up, there may be a little water in there from condensation.
