starting

  1. J

    After a decade in storage, not getting fuel. Any ideas?

    First of all, it's not the fuel that was left in it; I drained the old fuel by removing the fuel pump from the bottom of the tank, and replace it with fresh gas. It cranks fine, has good spark (it vroomed nicely when I gave it a shot of starting fluid in the airbag, but quit immediately after)...

    Starting problem

    Hey friends. I know its been a long time. This issue has been going on for years and I'm fed up. Sometimes when I try to start my bike the starter just clicks. It will do it after a ride or before. I have to use a jumper cell to get it to start. I have tried 3 new batteries, starter relay and...

    Ignition switch is starting to fail.

    Bike bandit has the switch set up for $425. I think it was. Im zeroing on that Digital guard dawn key-less ignition set up. Have one on E bay for $279. Anyone have this?

    ignition confusion - starting BUT

    OK here is the problem The Rocket is not starting normally. Run through the usual sequence and I get no joy when I push the starter button, all else seems to initialise as per usual. Like all experienced Rocket riders I have a new ignition set on hand and have plugged this in and it makes no...

    Cold starting problems

    Are these bikes normally hard to start when it's cold? I think I might need a new battery. I took her out the other day and she started right up after every stop. It's 28 degrees outside now and she doesn't want to kick off. Is this common? It does seem like a tiny battery for this massive engine.

    A new starting issue on me

    Hadn't ridden the bike in a while. Charged the battery. At first when I turned the key the lights came on but the dash was dead. Flicked the kill switch repeatedly and the dash started to work. Pulled in the clutch lever and the dash reset with a loud click from the clutch switch. Removed the...

    Rocket 03 turning over but not starting

    Good evening all. Just gone to lay the bike up for winter and shes been stood outside for 2 months and no good for her. A friend kindly offered to put it in her garage for the winter. Went to start her up for the move and as usual the battery needed a boot. Charged the battery overnight and...

    Stalling when starting warm

    I had an issue with my Rocket today that I'd not experienced before. When I started it cold, it was fine. Ran perfect. Rode it about 50kms and shut it down. Walked around for a couple of hours then got back on the bike, started it and rode it another 50kms or so. So far, no issue. Went...

    Very strang starting issue

    So I have a 2005 Triumph rocket 3 with a strange issue. I live in Georgia, so temps are nice and warm. This is a inherited issue as the bike was passed to me from my father.

    I have noticed a little starting bug. 2015 R3T around 4,500 miles, the battery is working on its 3rd year ( and you know I am anal about not letting a battery go beyond 2 years). Shame on me! Anyway, I go to start the Rocket and it cranks normal then suddenly stop dead in its tracks. Release...

    Got weird things goings on with a 2011 Roadster. First of all I have had intermittent speedo dead for a while, where it will stay not working for sometime, then spring into life. However it is now permanently not working, no sweep when you power it up, no odo, but you can see the backlight...

    Not starting after LED's

    This is a weird one but here goes. Yesterday I fitted some LED turn signals to the rear together with an LED light and the appropriate relay to get everything to flash correctly. The indicators, rear light/brake light all work perfectly but now the bike won't start! The fuel pump primes and...
