Street triple r 675 not starting
« on: September 13, 2018, 09:20:11 PM »
Hello guys,
I have a 2012 street triple r, went out the other day and all was fine filled up with petrol and the bike wouldnt start again, every time I push the start button it just clicks, replaced the battery but no joy, it bump starts and rides fine every time just wont start on the button. Im thinking the starter motor ? Anyone know if these are a fault with these bikes ? Ive never heard of one to go on a bike before, Ive also checked the voltage and everything is ok, any other ideas on what it can be ?
Cheers 👍

Is there a solenoid on the starter motor that's not working? Or a loose s/motor earth connection?

I checked to see if there was a solinoid and couldnt find one, just spoke to triumph and a new starter is 330 🤦‍♂️

The old skool test would be to give it a firm sharp tap with a soft faced hammer to see if it frees up!
Then I'd take it off the bike do a bench test with it connected direct to a battery before checking out 2nd hand and/or refurbished replacements. Something suitable will be available lots cheaper than T's list price.
Remember s/motors are bought-in components and probably fit several bikes but make sure the drive splines are the same.

Battery wire direct connect to solenoid.   Check fuse there.  Bush way is expose covers and quickly bridge the terminals with the thick wire that directly connects the battery to the starter.  Sparks will happen if you dick around like a pansy.  A pair of large insulated linesman pliers would be suitable.  Or large screwdriver if there is access but likely isn't.
This will tell you if your starter works.  Only needs to be for a moment to tell you. 

The click noise should be the starter solenoid,  unless you are referring only to the switch push and super sensitive hearing.  Then I'd be looking at clutch switch.
