Question about 1994 Cagiva Mito 125 - Lawson

1 Answer

Starter problem I had a look over the Planet again. Stuck in the battery from the TZR as I was out riding it so it should be charged well. Same symptoms. All relays and solenoids click. Power valve zips. I managed to bump start it and the Planet ran as normal. When I press the ignition button

I can feel the starter motor clicking. So I took it off and pressed the ignition button and the starter motor was spinning as it should. I took off the left crank case cover removed the cog cover removed the cog and rod pressed the ignition button and the starter motor spun as it should. I attached the cog and rod, the starter motor struggled to spin. Is the starter motor working? Why does it spin with the cog and rod removed? Why wont it spin with the cog and rod in place?,You have stumbled on it - if you are describing the stud that protrudes out towards the front wheel where you attached the thick red wire with eyelet on it, then no - it should not rotate freely. Chances are when nut tightened previously it has been turning whole stud (which you mustn't) and so it has(possibly) twisted internal connection to the point of almost breaking. Is there a lock nut on the stud before you attach the starter lead? cos If you are lucky (and no twisting damage has been done yet) you could either replace missing (first) locknut and plain washer and carefully tighten down - mustn't overdo this and watch to make sure stud doesn't turn, or just tighten (presumably) loose locknut thats already there. then you can put starter lead on and then second locknut with plain washer and again, tighten down making sure stud does not rotate. Sorry to say, but tend to think it's the earlier option though.,,,

Toro sl 500 riding mower starter will not turn


Is the battery charged up? Check that the headlight is on and bright.
Does the solenoid click but the starter not spin?
It could be jammed in the flywheel. Try engaging the drive and rocking the machine back and forth. Then try the starter again.

1987 Yamaha TZR 250 will not start


Hi, Www_silasmus and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enrichner.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. Fuel injectors stuck open.
13. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
14. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
15. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
16. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
17. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
18. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
19. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
20. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
21. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
22. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.
23. Check for engine trouble codes.

Engine starting problem


The battery still may be bad. The fact that it "warmed slightly when being charged" doesn't suggest it to be good - instead it could have high internal resistance in one or more cells. A battery with this failure still measures a good 12V until you put a load on it. I'd take the battery to a battery store, not a lawnmower dealer, and have it tested there with an actual battery tester. If it's bad, replace it. If it's good, then it's probably the solenoid and that means you'll have to replace the starter/solenoid assembly.

Not starting


Hi, Shawnw662 before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter have failed or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

Riding mower won't start


Test before you replace! Check the ground cable. Make sure it is clean and tight. Check all connections for the same. I have to assume that you made sure the new battery was charged...Check all of your safety switches. Check the connection to the starter. Good luuck...Lee

I was riding my '94 Virago 535 when it made a loud whirring sound then the bike stalled and I was unable to start the bike again. When I press the starter button nothing happens except the headlight goes...


Yes, the starter clutches sometimes get stuck on those bikes.
Then the starter turns at very high speeds and get broken.
Remove the starter from the engine ( that's an easy job )
Hold the starter in a bankwrench and connect a 12V battery to it. If the starter turns, he is OK, if not, replace the starter and his clutch system.
