Question about 1998 Honda CB 250 Nighthawk
I have not been using my bike on road for past 2 months, but starting it regularly. Last occassion, battery was run down, this time same again, so I used jump leads, it started then died, now no turn over, just clicking sound from around fuse area? & no yellow starter light. Green light is fine. Could this be starting motor gone like car??
Hi, Your problem lies with the starter solenoid, although you maybe using a fully charged battery to jump it, it appears to be sticking or possibly faulty due to trying to start with poor battery.
The starter solenoid is usually located on or near the Battery compartment, it is cylindrical and has two heavy wires attached to it 1 goes to the starter motor the other to the battery. If you are carefull you can by pass the solenoid by touching the heavy wire going to the starter motor with the jumper lead. Make sure the jump battery is connected and both the NEGATIVE leads are well secure. Put the NEGATIVE lead from jump cable direct to a engine mount bolt or engine itself Not the battery.
