    Hit Starter Button, Nothing Happens

    I have now accumulated my first 1,050 Trophy miles, and have been generally very pleased with my new purchase. Other than addressing some ergonomic issues, the only initial cause for concern that I have encountered has been the fact that on occasion, nothing happens when I press the starter button. Yes, I have the bike in neutral, side stand retracted, and clutch engaged. Each time it has happened, releasing the clutch and energizing the button again will eventually cause the starter to engage. My first addition was a battery tender, so I know that the battery is fully charged. When I mentioned this issue to the Triumph Dealer at my 500 mile service, the response I got was “Triumphs tend to do that”. I hate it when I hear a Dealer say “they all do that”!  :157: Anybody else with this same problem? Everybody else?  :156:

    Everybody.  You will find that if you give the electronics about 2-5 seconds to come up it will start on the first press every time.  Sometimes I get in a hurry and encounter the same thing as your experiencing and it has always been like that since brand new.  Others have the same experience.  It takes getting used to it and it's not an issue that needs attention, nor can it be eliminated, except by operator procedure.

    Having previously owned a BMW K1600GTL, I am in the habit of letting the system cycle through its start-up diagnostics before hitting the starter button. Perhaps I will wait another couple  seconds longer after the gauges cycle, and see if that indeed resolves the problem. I will not be satisfied with my Triumph unless it has some characteristic quirk!  :191:

    = self check, and you give the petrol pump some time to work.
    So do not worry.

    Thanks for addressing my concerns!
    My Mom always told me patience was a virtue.
    I guess I am still learning that!  :084:

    Don't hit the start button until you get the message on the screen that it is ok.System complete (or something like that).I am nowhere near my bike.

     :0461:    I agree with all those answers.     

    Long gone are the days of electrically controlled motorcycles, where we would turn on the key and hit the starter button, which would cause an immediate conversation between the battery, carburetors and spark plugs.   

    Now, with all bikes being electronically controlled, the conference call between all of the bike's ECU's (upper management), fuel injector squirter group, throttle-body team, O2 sensor guys etc, takes a few more seconds before everybody's on speaker phone.     :038:
