Either you have a bad battery(bad cell) or you need to clean you battery terminals.  Clean both end of the positive and negative cables.  If these are dirty or corroded  it will act like a bad battery.  Do this first since it is a free to do, plus it may save you from future problems.  Then before you buy a new battery, see if jumping it.  If it starts then you need a new battery.

Hello, I have a 2003 dr650se and it wont start using the electric start. it will bump start and run fine until you kill the motor then it wont start it just clicks. the battery is fine. is there a cut


I think your bike has 2 anti start switches the side stand and the clutch lever. You state it bump starts runs fine then clicks when you try to restart. The clicking is the starter solenoid which would indicate the battery has not enough cranking power to turn the starter motor. Check battery voltage must be above 12.5. remove battery (undo negative lead first). Wire a 21 watt bulb to the battery and see if it dims within a small period of time. If it remains bright try charging the battery only use a dedicated bike charger (less than 1 amp out put). Do not use a car charger ever. When the battery is fully charged refit to bike (refit positive lead first). Try to start the bike again. If it fails to start bump start it and check the voltage across the battery is should be about 14 to 14.5 volts. If low volts at the battery with the engine running your charging circuit is not working correctly. If the volts are good I would try another battery. They sometimes give false reading to chargers when a cell or 2 short out.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, 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 starter button/switch.
6. Faulty jiffy stand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
