It sounds like your battery is bad. Put a voltmeter on the battery terminals and check the voltage when you press the start button. If it drops below ten, the battery is bad. If you take the battery to an auto parts place they can load test it and tell you if it is good. You could also try a blast of about 10 seconds with the horn. It pulls more power than just the lights but still may not fail if the battery is just on the edge.

There is no circuit breaker for the main power on a bike, you could have a fuse blowing but it would not come back on if it was.

08 ultra wont crank

Hi Anonymous, start with a charged battery 12.5 volts or better that has good clean tight connections. Check main circuit breakers, ignition switch, starter circuit, and run/stop switch for continuity. After that if everything checks out go purchase the very best tool for your motorcycle, a factory service manual. Good luck

Why does the 30 amp circuit breaker behind the battery box on my 1990 fatboy click once when i push the ignition button? The bike won't start.

Try to reset the circuit breaker. also check for an earth fault on the starter motor .If this is not a circuit breaker and is a relay, you should make sure everything is ready for a start, (ie : in neutral, sidestand up and clutch in and that the battery is charged.) the neutral light being "on" doesn't mean it is in neutral. I hope this helps.

I have a 2005 yzf r 1 when I put the key in everything powers up when I push the start button nothing happens no starter noise nothing

Hi, Tom and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. Check the 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.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

When i went to start it the ignition key worked fine & all lights came on but when I hit the start button everything went black - as if the circuit breaker kicked in. what would be making the circuit...


Take the battery out and take it to an automotive parts store. Ask them to load test the battery. Sometimes a battery will short out internally and do this. I have a diesel pickup that has done it twice and hit has two batteries. Everything seems fine until you hit the starter, then "bang" everything goes dead and in the truck, both batteries are fried.

On your bike, if it's a short somewhere, when you hit the start button, you should be able to hear and feel the main circuit breaker break. Then, a few seconds later, you should be able to hear it reset. If it is the breaker, you'll need a schematic to determine what is one each fused circuit. The reason you need to know that is because whatever is causing it is NOT on a fused circuit or it would blow a fuse instead of trip the main breaker.

If you don't have a schematic, I have one for a '99 model. It should be about the same. If you'll contact me off forum, I'll e-mail you a copy. This forum will not allow me to send a file over 150kb in size. If I reduce the size that much, when you blow the picture back up it's so distorted that you can't make it out. contact me at Remind me of what you need.

Good Luck

New batt reads 12v on meter push button and tries to start. can hear everything cranking and turning briefly then nothing. put trickle charger on it for ten min and starts right up. what is the issue, do...

Did you put the acid in the battery or did the store do it for you? Or is it gel? Did you charge it up overnight? The voltage should read 12+, more like 13. The starter needs all of it to get going , then kicks back and enjoys the ride. And charges back up. Did you clean the terminals good? Check the electrolytes in the battery. Get one of those floaty ball things, they work great. But make sure it gets a full charge. Hope this helps.

Harley won't start ... starter not working custom softail ... 80 ci v twin engine... nothing happens when I push the starter button.... battery is fine and all lights work... clicking sound under seat...

That clicking sound you are hearing may be a circuit breaker tripping indicating a short circuit somewhere. I think the starter circuit is powered by the ignition circuit. If you have a short circuit in your ignition system the breaker will trip killing power to your ignition, thus the engine dying, and preventing power for the starter circuit preventing the bike from being restarted.

On your bike, I believe there is a chrome coil cover over the coil on the left side of the bike. Check and see if this cover has come loose. I've seen them come loose and fall down on the coil connector on top of the coil shorting it out. If that ain't it, just keep looking, there's a short somewhere. Good Luck

If it wont do anything then it is likely that youve popped a fuse
But it sounds like the battery isnt being charged properly. Make sure the voltage across the batt terminals is at least 13.5v at tickover rising to no more than 15.5v at higher revs

Please mark this as helpful (if it has been!!)
