Every time I turn the key on, there's a noise like an engine starting. Then, when I let out the clutch the wheels start this moving thing, both in the same direction. Should I not have ordered the biscuits and gravy?

When I look in my mirrors I see stuff that's going on behind me.

Well there have been a lot of us that if we wait for the computer to cycle through its system it wont start. It just turns over once and that's it. By pushing the start button as soon as I turn the key it starts every time. Where have you people been? Yes I did read a post about this and took it to heart. It actually works. Now if we can get Triumph to figure out how to fix this problem for everyone with out trying to race the signal from the UV relay to the brain.

Try not turning on the key and not pushing the start button.
Is that better? Sounds to me like a short in the wheelbase.
You might check the battery cables. They may he tight and
not corroded. Strange indeed.

When I turned the key, the light came on but the motor wouldn't start. Then I pushed the horn button on the right to see if that works, and it started, but the light blinked off for a moment! Weird.

My key doesn't seem to reach my bike, unless I stand quite close. I'm in my house at the moment, and my key is nowhere near my bike. Any suggestions?

Wow, you guys missed your calling. I can't wait for you guys to have issues other then your bad humor so we can laugh at them.

I don't know mate, you start a post simply entitled 'Starting' with a seemingly unsolicited sentence "Tried starting as soon as I turn the key on and it starts every time no issues." and then get hot under the collar when a group of bemused contributors have a bit of a chuckle. Perhaps you need to get over yourself just a bit?

Maybe your right. I should have been more explicit in my description. Some times I assume to much and my mind works faster then my fingers. I'm not hot under the collar. chuckle, chuckle
