First thing to check is the alternator /starter chain and tensioner which is located next to the clutch. Unfortunately if these are o.k. then the problem is the starter clutch...due to a bad bit of design from kawasaki the upper gearbox clusters have to come out to get at this. Obviously this means splitting the cases but if it makes you feel better the top end can stay intact. It sounds like a worse job than it actually is though...

Do you know what a wiring diagram is ? Free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size . Click on engine under system then under subsystem click on starting .Then click on the search button , then on the blue link . This is a wiring diagram of the starter electrical circuit. Do you know what ignition switch is ? the electrical part. , how about the starter relay , transmission range sensor ! There is one thing you can try , move gear selector to neutral an see if it starts then . If that does nothing ,check for B+ voltage going at the starter relay . Jumping pins 30 & 87 at the relay socket , where the relay plugs into . will cause the starter to engage an spin the engine . If you look on the bottom of the relay you will see four sets of numbers 30 & 87 - 30 should have B+ voltage , 87 goes to the S terminal on the starter solenoid . An 85 & 86 are the control side .86 at the relay socket comes from ignition switch through the trans range sensor to the starter relay coil ( electro magnet ) . Watch these videos too .

85 honda 700. When engaging the starter it sometimes just spins. Ot makes a grinding gear sound. What could it be?


This is an indication of starter drive failure. The drive gear inside the starter is weak/bad. Starter replacement recommended

I just had my starter replaced on my 85 Jaguar XJ6 and sometimes when i go to start it, it makes that sound like when you turn the key and the car is already started and sometimes the starter wont engage...


either the starter is not engaging all the way or there is a bad spot on the ring gear, remove the starter and turn the engine and check the ring gear if its good then look at the starter

I have a 1998 Buick LeSabre when I start the car it sounds like the car is still trying to start. When I but it into reverse or drive it will stop. I turned the key with out starting the car and ran...


the neutral switch is to prevent the starter from engaging if not in park or neutral - try just bumping the key switch without holding it - the key lock or ignition switch could be keeping power on starter or the starter solenoid could be keeping the starter engaged someone would have to be under the car listening or touching the starter to see this or measuring voltage on solenoid wire

Intemitant starting problem , ratling the gear stick now an again an it starts the other times i have to bump start it


If the starter spins and doesn't catch on the flywheel there may be some damaged teeth on the flywheel. That's why playing with the shifter may be moving the flywheel just enough that the teeth can engage. Remove the starter and inspect the flywheel teeth and the starter gear. Have the starter tested at an auto parts store. I hope this helps.

Starter trying to restart while idoling


Sounds like either an ignition problem. (Switch, not the lock cylinder) or a short somewhere between the switch and the starter relay.

Yamaha XV 1600 Will not start. Starter motor works but will not engage the engine to turn it over. The battery is new. This has happened suddenly and without warming. Anyone know what the problem is?


The sprag clutch that kicks the starter gear into the flywheel is not engaging. This may involve splitting the engine/transmission case if you have to clean or replace that mechanism. I have had success running CD-2 as described here. You might try that before tearing into the bike.
