How old is the battery? sure sounds like the battery is beyond it useful like and you need a new one.

even if the battery shows a full 12-12.5 volts, when put under a load (like trying to turn a starter and start a bike), it drops too low and the amps are not sufficient.

if the bike starts with a jump start, then replace the battery and all should be fine again.

My suzuki tl1000r wont crank or start


Check the obvious things first. Like is there any power in the battery? If so then is it reasonably charged up? If so then it may well be either the starter unit or the "ignition switch").

87virago1100cc wont kick over seems like a relay or switch cause it wont even click


Do any lights come on when the key is turned? Are you you sure there is power from the battery? If yes then what happens when the start button is pressed? Do the lights dim at all? Even without a click noise if the button is supplying power to the solinoid the oil check/dummy lights should dim slightly. If no dimming but the lights are on when the key is turned, start by checking the starter button, if there is no power there trace your way back to the battery with a voltmeter until you find where the power stops.

Have you tried to bypass the starter button/switch? Use a heavy jumper wire to go between the starter terminal and the positive battery terminal. Turn the key to "On" position, make sure "Run/Off" switch is turn on. Make sure bike is in neutral. I've started guys bikes with coat hangers before when they lost had trouble with the starter button. If the bike starter turns over, you'll at least have a place to start looking for the issue. Also you said you checked the battery, what was the voltage?

I have a yamaha 450 big bear it wont start off the button ,i have 2 live feeds going in to the solenoid when the ignition is on if i short the solenoid across it turns over and starts any idears?cheers...


Listen near the solenoid while trying to start--if you get a fairly loud 'click', the primary circuit is ok, but the solenoid heavy contacts are not making--repair or replace the solenoid if sealed. If no click, check the small terminals with a test light. The light should go out on one when the start switch is pushed. If the light never comes on, check the other small terminal--it should be lit at all times whenever the ignition switch is on, even when the start switch is pushed. If it goes out too, there is a poor connection between the ignition switch and the solenoid. If neither terminal loses power, trace the start button circuit back to the solenoid. It is likely open somewhere between--usually a push-together connection. Hope this make sense and helps!

Starter clicking noise, bike won't start


start relay should be checked, if cables are loose or corroded they do not deliver enough power.if jumping the start relay will engage the starter replace the relay.

My BT1100 will not start. Battery is fully charged but pushing the start button I only get a click from under the seat. Have tried jump starting from another bike same result. Any ideas? Thanks


Normally I would say it was dirty terminals, but a jump start should by pass that. Because of the clicking sound, start with the terminals, then try to find your stater motor and try to identify where the sound is actually coming from (ie take the seat off). The solenoid is the next thing that makes that noise, and finally if all else fails, then your starter motor is cactus. I cannot find a manual for you, but have a look yourself, you might find a comparable one that will help you.

2002 Suzuki GSX 600 F runs good when starts but now it wont start


Take a test light or multimeter and check if
power is getting to the starter each
time you push your starter button.

If so, the solenoid or starter relay is okay.

If not, then find the relay, it is at
the end of the battery positive wire.
It may be under the side cover or
under the seat.

Use your test light again and
see if power is on both sides
of the relays larger terminals when
you push your button (key on of course).
You should hear the solenoid or relay
click. It connects the positive
battery terminal to the starter
to make it run.

If it doesn't click or pass the power through
then check if power gets to it's
smaller wire when you push the button.
If not, could be the button, or
possibly something like a
bad side stand switch or engine
stop switch.
