Try push starting. If it start easily with push starting your problem is either a weak battery (most likely) or a bad starter.

Light/Horn is on but can't electric start(with flickering sounds when start button pressed) the bike


By "flicking" sounds, do you mean a series of rapid "clicks"?

Usually a series of rapid clicks when trying to start is an indication of low battery voltage, or a bad electrical connection, usually a ground.

Get an automotive jumper cable (use only ONE of the leads, let's say the BLACK one), hook one end to the battery NEGATIVE terminal, and the other end to a bolt head that mounts the starter motor to the engine case, and see if that helps.

If so, it is a ground issue.

An old time Harley trick is to attach a SECOND ground cable to the battery negative terminal, and the other end, remove one starter mounting bolt, slip the bolt through the cable "eye", and reinstall the bolt.

The problem in this case is that most bike engines are made out of aluminum.

While aluminum WILL conduct electrical current, it's NOT the best conductor in the world.
This is why copper jumper cables are much better than aluminum ones, and why they found out (the hard way) that aluminum wiring in a house is no good!

NOW, if when you try to start and you get a SINGLE click, this usually means either a bad starter relay, or bad starter solenoid.

Electric start doesnt seem to be working


If there's no noise at all your battery is either dead (jump start or new battery). If it clicks then there isn't enough charge in your battery to start the bike (charge battery or bump start)

I have a 2009 Ninja 250r. The bike will not start with the electric starter. It will start if you push start it. I replaced the starter and it's still not working. Normally when you turn the...


My first impression was that the battery hasn't got enough power to run the starter ans supply the computer with the 9 volts necessary to create ignition. When you push start it the battery is supplying enough voltage for the engine to start.

In short you need to service and charge the battery or a new battery.

Kick start will start it. Electric starter will not turn over.


Engine is still cold, battery doesn't have enough juice to supply extra current to ignition coil coz its almost use up by electric starter. Check battery contact. Head light is on.

Commonly on morning when engine is still cold kick about 10 consecutive time before turning on the switch. It will help lubricate it inside and generate some heat. This will lessen starting current to be use up by the starter. Also give some extra fuel to the line.

Hope it helps

Indicators, horn and lights don't work yet I have high beam


I am restoring a 1982 Yamaha Virago 750. The OEM horns were shot so I replaced them with standard 12 automotive horns. The problem is that when I push tht horn button with both horns connected, the system won't deliver enough power to run them. However if I disconnect either horn, the other one will work. It seems like the system can't deliver enough current for one. If I connect the two horns direct to the battery they work jsut fine. Is this an electrical system problem (diode, regulator, horn switch, bad ground?) or should I rewire with an aftermarket relay for the horns?
