1995 speed triple no crank

I just picked up a 1995 speed triple. When I turn the key on I have headlights and tail lights, turn signals and horn. But I have no indicator lights and no crank. All fuses in box are good. Any ideas on where to start. Key switch? Thanks Nick

Do the headlights dim when you hit the starter switch, do you hear anything?

If the battery voltage is good, I'd do the easiest thing first. Turn the key to on, MAKE SURE THE BIKE IS IN NUETRAL and jump the bike straight at the positive nut terminal on the starter. If it cranks over you know you have a problem in between.

Lights don't dim . No sound from solenoid. Battery voltage is good. Jumping starter is a good idea. Dash/indicator lights should be on when key is turned on and they are not.

They should be, could possibly be the ignition switch however the lights didn't use to work on mine (switch was ok) and the bike still started. I would jump the starter to bypass the ignition circuit and confirm the starter is good. Then you can eliminate each switch from the equation if it cranks over.

I forget how the T3s do, but that sounds like a later model with the kill switch engaged.

Cheers,

Thanks for all the replies guys. I've got a few places to start. It will be a week before I can get to work on the bike. I will report back when I have an answer.

Before you start pulling the bike apart ...... Switch the key on and off a couple of times and pull the clutch lever in and out a few times.

Right. Sometimes mine will only start if I pull the clutch lever in, even though it's in neutral. Must be an intermittent switch.

I've had that issue too, it is intermittent and tends to catch you unawares...

Don't forget the cut out switch operated by the side stand, it can get a bit sticky too.

The only thing wrong with a perfect ride to work is that you end up at work.
