Question about Buell Motorcycles
Last time it ran was first week of November 2012. As of 11/27, it will not turn over.
Posted by Anonymous on
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.
7. Security alarm needs a reset.
8. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
9. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

Hmm, not much to go on...I don't know that engine well, but suggest a loose primary chain may give these symptoms...clicking when it hits the screw bosses at idle and some backlash when slowing down to lights. A long shot could be poor oil supply to your hydraulic tappets causing the clicking and banging as they go metal-to metal. Check oil pump and increase idle speed to 1100-1200rpm to get some oil pumping. Good Luck

drain primary fluid,remove clutch inspection cover make sure not to lose spring hex when removing,with small screw driver turn adjuster so the hex nut screws out (left handed threads) remove ball and ramp off cable careful not to drop anything into primary.okay now go up cable to mid-range adjuster and back off (together) then go up to clutch lever and remove there a snap ring that you should replace and be mindful of cable rounting then go back down to primary cover and remove,when putting new one in be sure not to over tighten and don't forget o-ring, after all reinstalled to adjust clutch screw adjuster in to it lightly seats and back off 1/4 to 1/2 turn and adjust mid range until you have a 1/16 to 1/8 freeplay at lever pull and release three times to make sure the ramp and ball have seated good luck

before you go and change the starter,you should check your battery voltage because thet is what sounds like your problem is.Your battery is not sending enough voltage to your starter soilnoid to engage the starter
