Starter makes a ''clicking noise'' and doesn't turn over bike

Starter clicks and starter doesn't turn over in my 1996 yamaha big bear
Is there an ignition switch, or is there a problem with the starter itself?

    Started the bike and quickly had it die before i even left the driveway. When i press the start switch the starter makes a clicking noise and refuses to turn over.

    a while back the positive battery cable to the starter relay started to smoke when I cranked the bike. Now the bike just clicks when I try to start it.

Batteries dead or dosn't have enough volts.try taking a jumper box and hooking it up if that dosn't work.then i would say its your starter silinoid.

350 big bear quad bike won't start unless I pull start it.


Hi, Connor and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary, 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.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty ignition switch.
6. Faulty starter button.
7. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
8. Security alarm needs a reset.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

My 2006 r6 starter relay clicks like a dead battery and my bike wont start and my starter just spins my motor wont turn


Hi, Anonymous the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

I have a 06 r6 I put a new battery in it and now when I press the start button it just clicks if I keep pressing it then it will start but after I ride for a Lil bit when I stop it will start wright up but...


hi, your starter gear clutch bearing is "warning" you. It will fail shortly.That's a one way bearing that ""engages" your starter when you hit thr starter and "desingage" when the engine starts .
It'a also possible that you hear some noise when you stop the engine.Your bike must be around 30000 km ?

Yamaha virago 535 turn ignition on neutral light is flashing and there is a clicking noise coming from the electrical system bike wont start


These are known for starter problems... The clicking you hear is the relay but the bendix is locked up put it in about 3rd gear and rock it hard forward and back. Bendix may release. Make sure battery is good. As I said before these bike are well known for their starter problem and even after having it fixed by a dealer problem seems to show back up after a very short time. Good Luck!

Yamaha big bear 400 will not start wilth electric started will start fine with pull start has comp,fuel and spark


Sounds like a problem with the starter, could be a starter fuse, relay or solenoid. The start cicuit wiring could also be damaged. If you can pull-start the motor, and it runs fine, you have pretty much eliminated any problems with the motor. Check the wires running from the start button make sure they are intact, also trace them and look for around a 1" cubed black box. This is the relay, when you push the button, if its working, you will feel the box click. Also locate the starter and do the same thing. If you feel or hear the starter click, the solenoid is working. The battery voltage could also be too low to energize the starter motor. Could also be a battery or alternator issue. Check the battery voltage and for any sounds coming from the bike when you push the start button.

I just get a cliking noise from the starter relay when i start the bike up


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A couple of ideas to consider:
  • if there is a clicking sound, follow the battery cable from the battery's + terminal;
  • it would end in 1 of the terminals of the starter relay;
  • while pushing on the start button, short the 2 big terminals of the starter relay on the nuts (not on the threaded portion);
  • expect a big spark;
  • if the starter motor spins when shorting the 2 terminals, the starter relay is faulty;
  • if no spin, then the starter motor is faulty, most likely the carbon brushes.
Should the above be not applicable yo your concern, please postback results.

Goodluck and thank you for asking FixYa.

2003 yzf r1 turns over slowly/starter relay makes clicking noise


Hi, Tom it should be noted that in order to "PROPERLY" diagnosis any electric starter issue it is "IMPERATIVE" that you begin with a fully charged battery 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a proper load test, and the usual suspects are:
1. Battery terminals have loose or corroded connections.
2. Battery cables faulty due corroded or broken internal wiring at the cable connector especially the "NEGATIVE" cable which needs to be checked at "BOTH" ends.
3. Battery voltage, 12.5 volts or better,to the main circuit breaker to the ignition switch to the security/ignition fuse to the TSM/TSSM module to the engine stop/run switch to the starter button to the starter relay to the green wire that connects to the starter solenoid has dropped more than 1/2 volt.
4. With a voltmeter connected to the battery, the ignition switch in the on position, the kill switch in the run position, the starter button depressed, starter engagement should not bring voltage below 8-9 volts.
If a lower voltage is produced a proper battery load test should be performed with a load tester to validate battery integrity or battery replacement.
5. Faulty starter relay, check continuity.
6. Faulty starter solenoid, check contact plate and shoes for excessive electrical erosion/etching, refurbish as necessary or invert contact plate and use the virgin backside. Check contact shoes for being loose. Replace solenoid if the negative function is still a final outcome.
7. Faulty starter, bench test starter with a 12-volt battery if negative function check, decontaminate and undercut armature commutator segments as necessary, check segments with an ohmmeter probe each one and the segment next to it for shorts. Have the armature tested with a growler and field coils, and brush plate with an ohm-meter for opens, shorts or grounds. Replace brushes if less than .438" It is generally cheaper to overhaul/refurbish a starter motor than buy a new one.
