Question about 2008 Triumph Street triple

1 Answer

2008 Triumph Street Triple won't start

I have a '08 Triumph Street Triple 675. Almost every morning, and sometimes even after being warmed-up, I turn on the key, Lights come on, Primer primes, all instruments come on, press the start button and nothing, not even a try. I'll try it a few times, even turn it off and back on and after a few tries, it will start. It is not a low battery at all. Don't know if it is one of the sensors (clutch, kickstand, etc) but it seems to be getting worse.

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.

The problem seem to involve a number of circuits, I would suspect the Key switch as it supplies power to all affected systems. The dieing on release of the clutch is usually the kickstand safety switch. If the kick stand is not up, and the bike in gear, then when the clutch switch detects release is kills the engine so you don't kill your self.
Check or replace these switches.

Hope this is of some help.

Remove the battery and try to power on with A/C. If the laptop works, the battery is faulty. If the laptop does not work, could be an AC adapter problem.

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.

Check your alarm. because the alarm system has a engine immobilizer which makes the engine do what you are experiencing. Take the car to the dealer and tell them what is going on and they will reset the car system.

My Triumph Street Triple displayed the ECU malfunction light after a flat battery which has since been satisfactorily charged. How can I reset the ECU so my bike doesn't remain in limp home mo


You could try the 12 minute tune which I think is appl;icable to this model.This resets most issues.
Start the bike from cold...do not touch throttle then wait til fan comes on then time 12 minutes exactly then turn bike off.If this dont work go to a dealer so they can plug into the ECU and find out the cause..

2008 Triumph Street triple instrument display not working


Hi, Chuck if some or all of your instrument cluster goes dark/blank immediately upon startup or a few minutes later riding down the road the usual suspects are:
1. Blown instrument fuse.
2. A bad ground in the instrument circuit.
3. Faulty wiring before or after the fuse.
4. Faulty wiring or connector between the fuse and the instrument cluster.
