Your starter isn't getting enough power. Try checking your water levels in the battery and charging it with a trickle charger. Good Luck!

I have a 2005 with only 3000 miles on it. I could not start the bike and thought my original battery was weak. I had it on a trickle charger with a green light, but as soon as I tried to start the bike a...


As this point you can't get the bike to turn over is this correct? If the engine is turning over but won't start then yes the gas is most likely the problem. Gas after sitting for even a month can evaporate from the fuel system and it leave a fouls smelling deposit behind that clogs up everything. It stinks and it's a mess to clean out. To prevent this from happening use a product that is called "Fuel Stabilizer" in the last few tanks of gas before you put the bike away for the winter or a dormant period. If the motorcycle is in a hot climate or heated garage this foul smelling gas can happen within a few weeks.

My 2002 kawasaki ninja 250 is having trouble starting. (electric start) At first it was just giving me this clicking sound kinda like when your car wont turn over and start. So I replaced the battery for...


The oil light is on because the engine isn't running to build any oil pressure. Sounds like the new battery may need to be charged fully. After the battery is fully charged, and the 'clicking' noise is back (or not) check the battery connections for corrosion--especially at the positive terminal. If ok, you should get one solid click when trying to start. If ok, but still not starting, jump the two heavy terminals of the solenoid (click source) with a heavy wire which should bump the starter motor. If nothing, then the starter motor needs service--usually the brushes inside fail to make contact with the armature due to brush wear, or weak springs. Most dealers will likely only sell you a new starter--no internal parts. Hope this helps!

Could be, replace or have it tested. My old bike a 1998 VT1100CT had a problem with the starter being weak, like the battery was dying. Turned out to be the battery ground wire bolt, going to the back of the starter. It just had a little rust on it, and the bolt broke when I went to remove it. But once replaced the bike starts great, we replaced the battery, took apart the starter tested everything. All for a slightly rusted bolt not making a good ground... Check your Regulator, and any corrosion around the connections!

Cold start


If you are confident that the battery is good, check for corroded wires to the starter. Start at the battery and follow the POS cable to the solenoid. From the solenoid to the starter. If the wires are good and you have a solid ground, then I would suspect the starter brush pack. They could need to be replaced or just cleaned.

Wont start


got a charger and it ended up being a dead battery.---- If that's the original battery, it's probably toast. You'll probably do well to search for a replacement at this point. Bike batteries are generally considered short-lived. The longest lasting battery I ever had in a bike went 9 years*. But that's so far away from a normal lifespan it's almost ridiculous. I suppose the average is more like 4-6 years but the modern, Maintenance-Free types seem the best.
