    ignition cutting off

    I have an issue where i have the power on, dash is lit up, but when i turn the handle bars to the left, it all cuts off. will power back up when i slightly turn the bars back.  This has occurred when engine running as well.  Does anyone know what may cause this to happen.  Fortunately it hasn't happened while riding because i have never turned the bars completely left when turning or riding.

    It is almost like an electrical connection is loose.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Longridz,

    It sounds very much like you may have a known problem,
    where the wiring exiting the base of the Ignition switch is pulled tight,
    by being routed against the rigid Brake pipe at the left side of the Headstock.

    This can cause the wires to be pulled out of their soldered connections inside the Ignition switch,
    or become chafed until they break, or short out against other wires or the frame.
    Moving the handlebars and noticing the power switching on and off
    is a good indication that this is the problem !

    Your Trophy is covered by a 2 year warranty, and Triumph are well aware of this problem.

    Here's a previous Topic about it : Ignition Switch Wiring Failures.

    ... and another showing some good Photo's of the problem :
    Ignition Switch DIY Repair

    The warranty solution is to replace the complete Ignition Lock, rather than trying to repair it.

    You should be aware that if the Ignition Lock is changed, you will end up with two different keys -
    a new key for the new Ignition switch, and your existing key for the Fuel cap, Seat Lock,
    Panniers and Top Box ( if you have the Top Box ).

    I also had this problem, under warranty, and Triumph agreed to replace the complete lock set
    so that I still had just the one key, which is what I wanted, although others actually prefer to have
    a separate key, for example to be able to unlock the luggage without turning off the engine.

    Cheers  :821:

    I'm with Coconut on this one. Same happened to me and Triumph gave a goodwill repair at 3 years old, but I now have a different key for the ignition.

    I had posted a few days ago that when i turn my bars to the left my power cut off.  someone had said the wires to ignition get rubbed or break on a brake line.

    When this was happening the power would go on and off when moving the bars, but now there is no power at all.  I checked the fuses, nothing is blown, would the relays go bad ?  be the cause of this..

    Have you actually checked the wires?

    They are a pain to get to, they break close to the bottom of the actual ignition switch, 99% sure that's the problem.

    Longridz,

    Your latest description that there is now no Power at all, is probably that the wire, or wires,
    have now been pulled completely apart, whereas before they were still just about making contact,
    and the movement of the handlebars caused the wire(s) to flex apart.

    The Good News is that your 2017 Trophy is covered by the Warranty,
    so let them sort it out - you just have to get it Trailered there, or get them to pick it up !

    Let us know how you get on.  :169:

    Cheers  :821:
