First, make sure you check all fuses. You shouldn't have to even remove the starter to see if it is the problem. It wouldn't hurt to clean the contacts every once in awhile. Just trace the wire from the starter switch to the starter, then pull the wires and clean with sandpaper or wire brush.
Jake, if your ignition is electronic, you may not have enough system voltage to run the starter and the ignition at the same time. Try with a jump from another vehicle. Likely it will start. Try bringing the battery to a full and complete charge, water up first, then retest starting. Some units just have to have a perfect battery and state of charge.

Thank you for contacting FixYa with your inquiry. This is not an uncommon behavior and we need to locate the source of the problem and eliminate the things that are not effecting the issue. Most probable causes: Battery, Starter Relay, Start Button, Starter. Manually start the bike and take it for a good rip and see if the battery takes/holds a good charge for the rest of the day. If you don't have trouble starting through out the day then it's a good chance you may need to replace the battery. Recommend the use of a trickle charger to keep the charge up during the week when bikes in the garage. Part# 53 Frame Parts/Wiring Harness.http://cyclehuttktm.com/FicheFinderNew/FicheFinder.aspx If your battery is known to be new or has a good charge, do you often hear a clicking sound. It might indicate your starter relay is wearing out or you have a short. Trace the wire harness and confirm insulation wear.Check starter wire and confirm the nut's tight with a good star washer. If relay - replace it. Part Number #58 Frame/Wiring Harness http://cyclehuttktm.com/FicheFinderNew/FicheFinder.aspx If the battery is known good and the relay pulls in but the starter won't engage and you can hear it attempting you may have an issue with the starter being in a bind from some internal obstruction or just plain worn out. Pull it and check it. See if it engages off the frame. You may have to take it to an alternator shop and have it re-wound. New ones are spendy.http://cyclehuttktm.com/FicheFinderNew/FicheFinder.aspx Starter Control Button: Reseat the connection and confirm it's engaging the relay.

using a car battery, especially while the car is running is way too many cranking amps for a 12 volt bike starter. remove the bike starter to have it rebuilt or replaced. Internally the main power wire inside the starter will be burned/broken. check fuses as well
dear ttr125 a simple test for your stater problem would be to run a jumper wire from the positive post on your battery to the terminal on the starter if your stater spins you know you have to work backwards from there. if your starter does not spin the starter is the problem hope this will help jim
Hi, I would start by checking to be sure the battery has a good enough charge, if not then locate the starter relay and try jumping the two terminals on it and seeing if the bike will start that way if so then you will need to replace the starter relay. good luck
