Problem Starting Street Triple

Hi all,

Ive recently bought a 2008 Street Triple, amazing condition in routette green.

Trouble is that it hasnt been riden too regularly, only 6,000kms over the last 5 years.

It started perfectly when i first bought it, now 3 weeks later, nothing.

Power comes on, lights and tacho checks per normal, but when pressing the start button, it clicks and the clocks go off, then immediatly back on again, just like i turned off the key. Checked all the basics, kill switch, stand, battery is showing 11.6v when iginition is of and the same when on.

Any ideas?

I'd put the battery on a tender. These bikes can be kind of picky about voltage.

Take the bike in to Triumph and get your regulator rectifier replaced. Do a search on this for more details.

Due to extended periods of standing and not being charged, your battery has probably sulphated to such an extent that it will not hold a charge, even after being on a tender. A good battery voltage reading should be around 12.7 with ignition switched off. Have the battery load-tested.

Your battery is toast. Replace it with a Shorai battery. No more headache with those and their super slow discharge rate.

All of the above.

Your bike almost certainly qualifies for the R/R recall. Get it done asap. If it has failed it's probably taken the battery out. In any case it's probably past it. Even if it shows enough volts it may not have enough amps (?) to turn the motor. I had a battery like that.

When you get the new battery put it on charge for a CONTINUOUS 48 hours, even though the green light on the charger will come on long before that. This will ensure you get the most life out of the battery.

Last year I bought a 2006 Daytona with 800 miles on the clock. So yours is well used compared to mine!

11.6v is too low. These bikes are EXTREMELY sensitive to voltage. It shouldnt be too far gone but as others have stated above, I would keep it on a tender whenever not riding. Definitely a battery issue here.

Meh why waste the money, I still have my OEM battery only time I put it on a tender is in the winter when temps get real low and it is not being started regularly. A 30 dollar tender is a lot cheaper than a new battery and as long as you keep the battery with a good charge and keep it at room temp that thing will last a few years like mine has.
