  1. The Welcome Center
    Hello, I have used the forums to learn a lot. Unfortunately, none of the tips I picked up seem to alleviate the problem. That's a YouTube link to my video of it trying to start. I acquired the bike in 2013 and have had the starting issue back then. Starting issue continues, even after a...
  2. Street Triple Forum
    Hello, everyone! This is my first post, so please forgive me if I use incorrect terminology and what not. I have been riding on my S3R for about 3 months and 1000+ miles now. I have had multiple run ins with my bike not starting when the bike overheats, I thought it was a battery problem and...
  3. Street Triple Forum
    I initially thought the issue was the old lead acid battery, but i changed that to a new lithium ion one that has a little charge checker on it (1 to 3 lights are illuminated, 3 indicating full charge). I hadn't ridden the bike in a couple weeks, then last night I check the battery charge and...

    Is there any benefit for modern (I have a 2019 Bonnie) bikes/batteries in using a battery optimizer? If so when? Storage exceeding a certain number of weeks? Cold weather? Appreciate any guidance!
  5. Speed Triple Forum
    Bought a 2004 s3 955i about a month ago. I knew it had some electrical issues, so I started by replacing the reg/rec with the Shindengen FH020aa, a new battery and just installed a rick's moto stator (as I was still having issues so the stator was the last thing to replace). However now even...
  6. Air Cooled Twins Talk
    Hi Everyone, I have a bit of head-scratcher regarding my bike; a 2002 Bonneville. About a week ago, I began noticing the bike struggling to start while hitting the ignition. It would click initially before turning over and starting. This problem was intermittent for a few days but then became...

  8. The Welcome Center
    Hello all, I have been reading many threads on charging issues but have not found one that fits my situation so I hope I can find some help! In the spring after a few days of riding my battery died in the middle of a ride. I roll started it and made it home. Thinking it was a bad battery, i...
  9. Air Cooled Cruisers - America, Speedmaster
    Joys of being new & buying a used bike... I just bought a 2011 Speedmaster today and I'm super excited to get on the road. Naturally, it's a used vehicle so there has to be at least one thing I have to do before it's ready right, haha. The previous owner said it's been sitting in the garage...

    Possible battery or starter relay with Triumph Bonneville T100 (2003) Hi, I have come to get my bike out for the summer and discovered that the battery was flat. I have re-charged it, but the bike will not start. The ignition lights come on and the indicators work, but the headlight will not...
  11. Street Triple Forum
    With almost a guarantee - when I pull up on a gas station after riding my 2010 Street Triple R for 20+ miles it won't restart after filling up. I always turn the bike off with the key btw. On trying to restart the alternator will maybe rotate once, but often I only hear a click, or like y'day...
