2004 Kawasaki VN 1600 Mean Streak will not turn over just clicks


Hi, Anonymous you turn on the ignition switch press the starter button and all you get is the dreaded "CLICK" or "CLUNK" now before testing any electrical component in the Starter 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. Depending on battery voltage starter relays and starter solenoids can make the same noise when you hit the starter button. You can easily determine which one is at fault by the following two simple tests:
STARTER RELAY- place your thumb and index finger on the starter relay and press the starter button, if you feel the click then the relay is faulty and needs to be replaced.
STARTER SOLENOID- bridge the positive and negative poles of the solenoid with a small screwdriver if you get a loud clunk then the solenoid needs to be rebuilt or replaced as necessary. If the engine turns over then replace the starter relay otherwise the usual suspects for a faulty starter solenoid 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, must be 12.5 volts or better, voltage from the battery 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 must not drop more than 1/2 volt of battery voltage.
4. Disconnect spark plug cables, 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 9.6 volts DC. If the voltage is below 9.6 the battery is faulty and must be replaced. I "HIGHLY" recommend a maintenance free AGM battery typically they have more amperage for cranking.
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 buying a new one.

I know my model is off but i couldnt find my 1974 in there. Anyway i posted earlier that my 1974 just quits on me while riding. I mentioned i replaced my coil and breaker. That is incorrect. What i did...


Your bike should have the large round relay that only has three terminals on it. There are two larger terminals, one for a large red wire from the battery, and one for a green wire going to the small connector on the starter solenoid. The small connection on the relay is for the wire that comes from the start button. The ground is though the body of the relay where it bolts to the bottom of the battery box. It does sound like a breaker is tripping on your bike. Now, someone may have changed the starter relay on your bike in the past. On your Shovel, there is a chrome cover over the coil on the left side of your bike. Make sure that cover is not loose. If it is, it will drop down onto the top electrical connector of the coil and short the white wire out. This will cause the breaker to trip and shut everything on the bike down. If you need a wiring diagram, contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net and I'll send you one via e-mail as a JPG or GIF picture file.

Bike won't start, new Harley battery, and starter bike 2006 FLHX Street Glide, all I get is a clicking noise from solenoid under seat


I'm not too familiar with the later model bikes but if I were getting a clicking noise under the seat and the bike was not starting, I'd investigate the source of the noise. It's possible that it is a starter relay that engages the solenoid that is an integral part of the starter. Look at the starter from the right hand side of your bike. You'll see a single small wire that connects to the end of the starter just above the end plate of the solenoid. Disconnect this wire and connect a test light or volt meter to the wire. Turn on your ignition switch and press the start button. You should hear the click under the seat and see voltage at the end of that wire. If not, replace the relay, a plastic cube about an inch in dimension.

Good Luck

Bike wont start just quit working one day it doesnt try to turn over battery is good and holding voltage, have checked all fuses, starter relay, kill switch, ran up and down that bike with a volt meter...


Push the starter button if your hear the solenoid clicking the starter button is good. If there is no click from the solenoid you may need to clean or replace the starter button.Follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid. Jump across the two cable terminals, this should activate the starter.If the starter works now you have burnt contacts inside the solenoid. replace the solenoid. If the starter does not turn over, try again tapping on the starter with a plastic hammer if the starter works now you need starter brushes. If the starter will not turn over with direct power (bench test) and the brushes are good the armature is probably shorted. You will have to replace the starter as an assembly parts are not available to rebuild the starter.

My husband will press on the start and nothing happens. It was just random but now nothing.


Maybe you ought to press the button. No seriously, if everything else on the bike is working correctly, you could have a bad starter relay. There may be more than two relays on the bike but one is a starter relay. When you press the start button, the relay should energize and send power to the starter solenoid. The relay is a cube about one inch in dimension. Usually located under the seat. You'd need a wiring diagram to test to see which wire power from the start button was coming from.

Usually most relays have a schematic drawn right on them. Look at the relay and find the "coil" connections. Using either a test light or a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) , test to see if you're getting power to the "coil" of the relay. Turn the ignition switch on, insert the probe of the test light or meter and press the start button. The test light should light up or the meter should indicate battery voltage at this connection. If so, replace the relay as either the coil is bad or the contacts for the starter circuit are bad. If not voltage, your start switch may be bad.

Good Luck

Starter problem


I think there are two possible causes here:-

1.(Easy) your starter-button is permanently contacting, split the right-hand switchgear on the bars to check and clean.

2. (Git) The starter circuit relay(Not the starter-relay) in the junction box is knackered causing the circuit to be live as soon as ignition is switched on.
This will be located under the seat or behind a side panel. The whole assembly will have to be replaced probably.

Hope it's the button.

Self Start problem...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your description is the starter relay making the clicking sound. Problem could be any of 2 possibilities:
  • starter relay/solenoid; and/or
  • starter motor.
To determine which, jump the 2 big terminals of the starter relay/solenoid when starting the bike; if the motor turns, the relay/solenoid is defective; if the starter motor does not turn, the starter motor is defective (most likely the carbon brushes).

Of course other possibilities still exist, such as:
  • loose, corroded battery terminals, relay, starter terminal/connectors;
  • weak battery.
  • open, corroded fuse/fuse terminals.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
