Based on your description, its sounds as though you have a starter or starter selnoid problem. The starter selnoid is not engaging the engine at first and then when it does, is nort passing enough current through to the starter motor to get the job done.

Nutral switch on honda shadow aero 1100

If there is a click when pushing the starter button first check the starter itself by checking for battery voltage at the starter cable when the click is heard. If there is voltage the starter is the problem. If there is silence when the starter button is pushed check for voltage at the small yellow/ red wire on the harness side of the connector for the starter relay. This relay can be found by following the positive battery cable to it. If there is voltage present when pushing the button the relay is most likely bad. If not the right hand handlebar switch may be bad. Hondas have a problem with melting the contacts in the starter button portion of this switch. Open up the switch and jump across the black to the yellow/red terminals on the starter button circuit board. If the starter spins this switch is bad.

I charged the battery on my kawasaki zx12r & now it wont start! anybody have a clue why? it does not turn no noise when I push the start button, lights, horn everything else comes on. I am stationed in...

could be the starter solenod. you can find it by following the positive cable from the battery to the solenoid. try bridging the two posts with a pair of needle nose pliers. if it starts you now know your solenoid is bad. if it doesn't, could be your starter. check all wires clean and connected.

Starter clicking noise, bike won't start

start relay should be checked, if cables are loose or corroded they do not deliver enough power.if jumping the start relay will engage the starter replace the relay.

Sometimes my honda will not stop with the push

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

On the "...light click..." and no start, initially:
  • externally charge the battery;
  • install and try again and start the bike:
  • if no click heard, try with the clutch lever pulled in and/or the sidestand folded up. If it starts, then safety interlocks need to be checked;
  • if there is click but will not start, follow the big cable from the battery's + terminal;
  • it would end in the starter relay;
  • press on the start button;
  • determine if the click is coming from the starter relay;
  • short the two big cables/terminals;
  • if the starter motor spins, then faulty starter relay;
  • if not, then fault starter motor, most likely, the carbon brushes.
Postback results of checks/tests.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

My engine wont start

check battery for full charge and tight cables.use test light check for power to starter when pushing start button.if there is, check starter. if none check for power to start solenoid on small wire going to it w/ testlight when you press start.if none, check start button, & wiring.if youi have power to it,but no start, take large screwdriver & make contact between both solenoid cable posts,make sure bike is in neutral. should crank, confirming that solenoid is bad.also, even if the solenoid has no power going to it to energize it you can still use the screwdriver trick to get bike to crank.

Push starter button and no start

Evansville! Nice part of the World.
Bud's Harley Shop still there?
O.k. daft thing is the off run switch on the handlebars turned to off?
Failing this will the bike start and run off bumping (Push start).
If it does take a look at the battery (Maybe Dead cell/s) or Starter solenoid wire/fuse.
Solenoid is located near the battery it is the cylindrical item with the main pos+ wire from battery going to it.
Good Luck! could do with a new Bud's Harley 'T' shirt as mines worn out.

Aprilia rs 125 starting problem

First check the battery to see its still fully charged. If it is do a voltage drop test between the battery and the starter to check for a bad relay or open circuit. If that checks out, you very likely have a bad starter/solenoid. I can explain how to do these tests if u need me to
