SOURCE: Problems in wet weather and cleaning my triumph won't start.

Water is getting into your ignition coils.
Trace the spark plug lead up to the coil.
Get some ignition sealer spray and spray loads of it on the leads and coil.
When a bike is new, it is sealed. After washing with detergents it gets washed away. Spray the leads and coil once a week to keep them totally dry.
An immediate way to get round when wet is to spray wd40 on the leads and coil, it should start straight away.
But, don`t spray ignition sealer on until it is totally dry.
Hope this helps

On a 2009 Triumph America won't start with good battery. Disconnected single wire from Starter when start button pressed get battery voltage to wire. When connected just click. Do I replace the wh


Hey MArk,
Reinstall your starter...when trying to start your bike, voltage means almost nothing! - The "quality" of a battery is determined by the CCA (Cold Cranking Amps).. amperage is what makes your bike start...and you need at least 13.5 volts to run the lights, etc..
O'Reilly's, AutoZone, etc.. can test your battery..
..When you get a new battery...you need to check the charging system.. crank it up..let it get warm..then put a multimeter to it..Red to + terminal and black to - terminal ...you should get 13.5+ volts DC to the battery at 3500 rpm..

2010 Triumph Speedmaster will not start


Hi, Dean_fadden 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. Faulty ignition relay.
14. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
15. Check for engine trouble codes.

The side stand kill switch may be out of position, Starter button wire has come disconnected somewhere along the way? Is there power from the button to the solenoid when the button is pressed. If so, get a new solenoid. If not, trace the wire back to the button and find where it has come disconnected.

Check below the engine around the motor mounts beneath the engine for broken wire or disconnected wire. I once had this problem with a 69 Bonne and it was a disconnected wire underneath. Could be disconnected around the ignition area as well....It's a wiring problem for sure.
