Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your description is the starter relay making the clicking sound. Problem could be any of 2 possibilities:

  • starter relay/solenoid; and/or
  • starter motor.
To determine which, jump the 2 big terminals of the starter relay/solenoid when starting the bike; if the motor turns, the relay/solenoid is defective; if the starter motor does not turn, the starter motor is defective (most likely the carbon brushes).

Of course other possibilities still exist, such as:
  • loose, corroded battery terminals, relay, starter terminal/connectors;
  • weak battery.
  • open, corroded fuse/fuse terminals.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    There are no terminals/connectors to be disconnected. If you would be able to locate the starter relay, then you would readily see that there are only 2 big terminals; 1 goes to the battery + and the other to the starter motor.

    Incidentally and perhaps unknown to you, the rating that you gave lowered my percentages. Due to my rank/standing here at FixYa, even a Helpful (as you have given me) actually is detrimental to my overall score. Might you reconsider as I believe I have given you diagnostic procedure to determine which is at fault.

    A starter relay would look something like the image below.

    • jump the 2
      big terminals of the starter relay/solenoid when starting the bike;

    • if the motor
      turns, the relay/solenoid is defective;

    • if the starter motor does not
      turn, the starter motor is defective (most likely the carbon brushes).

    Appreciate much the change in rating.

My pulsar 150 dtsi does not self start , when i press the self start switch only relay sound comes but there is no sound of starter motor ,, bike starts with first kick only , so engine is ok ,, bt i have...

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. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

When put on the pc, tik tik sound coming from hard disk

Hello my friend.
This is indicates that you have hardware problem on your disk or is very dirty.
The only think you can try before buy new one is to scan it for errors and and do a defrag.
You select your hardrive LOCAL DISK C: etc
Right click-Properties-Tools Check now(Check for errors) Probaply will ask for a restart to scan it,so do a restart do start scanning your disk
For a defrag you do the same but in Tools you choose Defragment now(defrag now)

Motorcycle battery seems dead, help locating/replacing/charging

Yes it is the battery. First try charging it with trickle charger. NOT car battery charger. It should work fine once it is charged enough to start the bike. Than the bikes should keep it charged. Or you can jump it with car battery. This is safe. THe motorcyle battery is also 12 volts. Just smaller.

After the bike runs for 5-10 minutes and shut if off. Wait 5-10 minutes after it is off and try again. If it does not start again, than your battery is either dead or your stator/rectifier (your charge system) could be faulty. Lot cheaper to get battery for $30 than to pay $75 hourly shop fees for testing and than repairing.

It wont start , has a click-click -click sound when you try to start it

Try trouble shooting by using another battery to start the vehicle. If it does not start, then the starter must have gone bad.

Seized starter

Your battery is most likely dead. Try removing the battery from the bike and charging it with the appropriate charger overnight first (you might try taking it to have it tested while you have it out). You can try jump starting, but bike alternators are much smaller than cars so I would NOT have the donor vehicle running if you try it. That way you will know if your starter is really bad or just your battery. I bet a new battery will solve your problem for now, but why did it take only a month to go dead? Small electrical drain (parking light maybe?)

Hi dude,
99 % this & low milege is due to wrong Air to Fuel ratio.
This can be solved very easily.What you need is only a small screw driver.

Open the black tool box in the right side. Remove a small rubber bush thats there. Inside you can see a small flat screw. that controls the amount of fuel injected to the engine. Turn the thing clockwise a round or two & go for a small drive. Feel the difference & stop when you are satisfied. if your engine knocks, thats even bad. Dont overdo.

NB : This will reduce pickup

The sound and the high fuel consumption are all related. there are many things that might be wrong. it could be the fuel quality the carburettor air filter spark plug or even an elecrtical problem. but since you had the bike serviced but you are still experiencing problems i would try cleaning the spark plug. and when you fit the sparklug back, check wheter the wire going to the sparkplug is in perfect order. then put the bike in neutral, put in on the main stand, start it and check the big wire going to the sparkplug. listen if you can detect any noise in that area. if you hear a tik - tik sound, then there is a elecrtical leak. you should be able to repair that by yourself if not a normal service station would do. however if thats not the problem, then you should bring the bike to another service station,,,
