tt600

My tt600 has decided to develop a problem all on its own i have a misfire which i think is a coil pack how do i test them with a multimeter and the engine management light just come on and is a pain to start from cold sometimes the starter button doesn't work and i get a click under the seat clocks reset so press it again and it will fire sometimes it will die but once ticking over more than 3 secs it fine .
try the starter again and it will work just seems intermittent.
It is is instant to start when warm with no problem at all.
Any Help trying to fix very welcome
Open to all suggestions
Thanks Again

no start

Coils are tested using the OHMS meter for resistance,

What is your battery voltage now with bike switched off using the negative probe on the battery terminal and then again on the frame.

Triumph TT600 Year?

Hi Sket1234

Hmm:dopeyhmmmm:

If this isn't an electrical fault(am not convinced it is)it's a fueling problem,could be getting a hydraulic lock thing happening,it's hard to say sitting here with limited info?but what you say does fit,unless there are more pieces to this jigsaw?Good Luck

KCMC:tongue:

clicking

noise is usually the starter solanoid being short of voltage or bad contacts inside.

battery

A good quality sealed battery in service should read 12.8v,12.7v is passible but 12.6 is borderline,yours is low.I replaced mine last sept (12.5v) because of a low reading after i realised it only just started after a 2 weeks rest but ok after running.I`ve just checked it now and it`s 12.85v.A low battery can also wear out the starter solanoid contacts.You could try a good donor battery or jump leads (cold start) to a small car with its engine stopped.Also you could bypass the solanoid switch with a thick bridge wire.Good news is your charging system is ok at 14.2v.

TT600

I  charged the battery up to max with the charger and found that the positive connection the thread is awful and the bolt  doesn't fully tighten up. it isn't like all my previous batteries it has the threads in the battery metal and not a square nut under the clip and the thread has had it. for the time being if have managed to get it secure properly with cable ties whilst another battery is delivered.
But when i sorted that and made sure the battery was properly connected, put it all back together and turn the key
Starts first attempt and doesn't stall and die.
No relay clicking
Not sure about misfire i will have to take it for a ride
Hopefully engine management light will go out after the 3 cycles.
Does everyone think the battery was the cause of all the problems
Thanks for your help

Charging the battery and then trying it out is just the same as going for a run and being ok during the day.

It`s when the bike is stopped the battery is not holding charge.You`ve done tests and know the cure for starting problems,as you say it`s the missfire left.

I hope you haven`t bought a battery made in China/Taiwan.:shock:
