If you don't mind spending a couple hundred extea bucks, you'll be done with it.

Agreed... check the basics.
are you sure the battery is good ?

sounds like a duff battery to me

I find it very hard to believe the charging system has gone tits up at 9k

old age and batterys do not play well together on efi bikes

the ecu will shut down at like 11 volts and a old battery will have a hard time doing anything especially taking a charge .

put a multi meter on the positive and nrg post start it and the volts should be around 13 at minimum at idle . if so you need a battery is all
Yes - I'm a total newb to Triumphs.  I've had motorcycles for 20 years, but this will be my first dual-sport...*if*...I can fix the charging problem.  I haven't bought it yet.  Current owner is letting me play around with it before buying it. (good friend thankfully)

There is so much to read here I'm feeling very lost.

I bought a Stator to replace the stock one but once I took the cover off I realized it is too large.
Battery is good but (as I'm sure everyone already knows) only lasts 20-30 min while riding since it's being drained and not recharged.
Previous Owner let it sit for a couple years but they did take it around the block every few weeks.  Spent a lot of time hooked up to a trickle charger I'm guessing.
Only 9k miles on this '06 955i and I'm hoping to triple that and mud it up a bit too.

Can y'all get me started and pointed in the right direction?

Since this is turning into my build thread, I’m moving it to the girly section.

This topic has been moved to Girly Talk.

It’s already in the Street Triple bike but it will be a great test mule for Triumph as with most modern day engines big piston/short skirts/short stroke/clever fuelling.

Don’t think it’s a case of what they are going to do with that specific engine but what they learn from their Moto2 experience will very quickly come down the food chain in all capacities and design,you only have to look at how Ducati finally bit the bullet ditching cambelts and went to a cam chain with the Panigali and how that has changed things and hopefully Triumph will do the same bringing their triples into the 21st century with modern day tech.

I wonder what range Triumph will use this engine in? New Tiger?

Awesome looking bike, simple as that. I love that blue color. Thanks for sharing the pics.

Apparently,pressing the 'red' exclamation mark button bypasses the 'safety' features,and sends a charge straight to the battery? Some good clips on YouTube of them in use.
This model has the smaller clamps. But it's not easy getting them to clamp on the small battery terminals! But you can remove them,and connect direct to the battery. Similar to connecting the permanent connectors of an Optimate charger,and the like.
