    2002 Speed trouble starting

    Hi all. First time posting- not sure if this is a common fault or not. When my bike starts, it starts fine but sometimes it’ll take 3 times to start. During these times, all acc will turn on including the pump, but the engine will not even kick. Has anyone else experienced similar issues? Do these bikes have issues with starter motors?

    A good place to start is the side stand safety switch. Give it a good cleaning.

    You should also consider the clutch switch. On the real early model Speed Triples the switch could be disassembled and cleaned. On my 96 there was corrosion in the switch contacts. I cleaned it with a Qtip and brake cleaner and that fixed it.
