My 2004 Daytona 955i has a problem starting when only run for a short time and warm when it's first starting it was slow to start I've changed the coil that was causing a misfiring issue has the injectors serviced changed the pressure regulator but still has the same issue of not starting when warm if left for a while it'll start and runs good until stopped and trying to restart, the old owner said he'd had a kickstand sensor issue but tried different things and seemed like a fuel problem as could smell fuel when starting. Any suggestions please and can the kickstand sensor cause the issue?

Have you checked the crankshaft sensor? It may be just the clearance needs setting, especially if there has been work around that area. If not, the sensor may have failed.
My brother-in-law had this problem when the sprag was replaced on his ST. Turned out the sensor had been removed and the clearance hadn't been set properly when reassembled.
Another cheap fix max be the fuel tank vent. Does it start if you open the filler cap?

Have fixed the problem starts beautifully now cleans the fuel pump got checked out and the breather from the air box not exactly sure what the problem was but the fuel system was completelyleaned out and runs better then when I'd bought the bike it's my first Triumph as usually owned Japanese bikes except a Rickman predetor but that had a Kawasaki z1000 moor fitted have to say the Daytona is a awesome handling bike but find the gear changes a bit rough and clunky when hot but getting use to the gears most of my Japanese bikes have very smooth gear changes is that normal when hot? I'm a bit hard in the gears sometimes though. Thanks though for your comment was really spinning me out since only owned the bike a few months and never owning a triumph but a awesome ride.
