you have a problem with the starter not turning the engine. so we probily not sending a signal to the starter.
you realy confused me when you started talking about gas and choke?
if the engine doesnt turn over none of this even matters.
these new bikes have many safety features .
you have a sensor for netural and you have a sensor for your kickstand and a sensor for your clutch
and all of these have to be workinf right for your engine to turn over.
so with your kickstand up and the bike in netural and the clutch lever pulled in
it should turn over and start.
when it doesnt you need to check your wiring to the switches one might have come loose.
or could be a bad switch.
let us know what you find

this is going to sound bad but some where you have lost power to the coils pull every thing back apart and the first thing i would do is look at the tach you changed no singal i bet when you are cranking the mtr over, see if the tach show rpm while cranking . if it dose not install your oem tach good luck kdc744

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.

I'll assume you did not mess with the fuel line, the bike is not in need of tuning and the battery is charged. Issue may be something else if the above is not true.
On my 2000 Speed Triple my headlight relay went bad. It left the headlights on when starting. The headlights are suppose to switch off so the startor could get more juice out of the battery when starting the bike.

I have a friend that has a 2006 Triumph America and the same thing happened to him. Started running on one cylinder and then just refused to start. I did a check on everything and found that the CDI went bad. This is mounted under the fuel tank along the back bone and is about 3 inch square box.
They mounted them with a type of plastic rivet and would vibrated on the mount and cause something inside to break. When you replace it mount it solid and use a piece of rubber between the mounting plate and the CDI.
