Starting Issues 06 Speed Triple
In May I had my ZRX11 totaled by an old man. I'd been looking at the 06 Speed Triple and fell in love with it. I purchased it on June 13. Everything was fine with it during the 1000 mile break in. I followed the instructions to the tee. Then she develops a problem starting. I hit the ignition sometimes 3-4 times before she turns over. Now that's a tipical cold start pattern during summer months (80-90 degrees)
Warm starts I encounter the same thing. Except its maybe 2-3 times on the ignition before she turns over. Called the dealership and they said they've seen this before with another 06 Triple. They said it has to do with the fact the Triple only has one map sequence for starts. They are saying cracking the throttle 1/8 at ingintion - but this does absolutely jack shit - its not carbed, nor do I think its an issue of too little fule. I feel like it could be injecting too much fuel.
Dealer is recommending I bring it in for them to try different plugs. They say this is what Triumph is saying. Anybody else out there having problems with ignition? Any ideas on what I can do to correct this problem? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks everyone.
Truth is incontrovertible; malice may attack it and ignorance may deride it; but, in the end; there it is.
