    Today my starter would click but the engine wouldn't turn over. I'm guessing my starter switch on the end of the solenoid is going bad. Can you get replacement parts for them or is it typical Triumph and you have to buy an entire starter ?

    Yer a funny guy :D Battery is only two years old. Pretty sure it's the starter switch. If I click it a couple times it spins over at normal speed. Warp had a link to a place that sold repair parts, but the link doesn't work anymore :(

    Mine has done that a few times. All it needed was the battery posts tightened.

    If you don't want to wait for the kit, you can pull the starter/solenoid and polish up those pitted/burnt contacts to buy some time.
