The relay is located behind the fake "Air Scoop" and not the side cover. Also check wires running uner the seat. They have been known to chafe and short the trun signals and some guages.

I have full electric power and a new battery . When I hit the start button it clicks at the fuse . It has a new starter switch .

Ok, providing your battery is good, if your getting a click, means your circuit is good from the Battery to the start button on to the starter relay(is what you hear clicking). You need to look at your starter motor. Either bad earth to starter motor or worn brushes in the starter motor. There are a few other possibly causes but id inspect the motor first before going into those as there a bit more advanced problem.

I have spark and it turns over I blown two power source 10 amp fuses and it wont start? and new spark plugs

It sounds as if your starter motor is failing, But as you don't say what make and model your bike is I can't be more specific. It could also be a shorting starter relay. the speed the fuse blows at would give more information. If it blows immediately, the you are looking at an electrical short, if it takes a little while then you are looking at an electrical overload, indicating a failing starter.

Sometimes, after the bike has been ridden (sometimes only 15 minutes in warm or cold weather), when you stop and restart motor, it pops the 10 amp ignition fuse. It has been in the shop 3 times. My...

Some thing is expanding with heat or moving slightly to cause a dead short
if the solenoid click when the fuse blows I would suspect the starter motor brushes / wiring, insulating washer on lead from solenoid or the starter motors internal components

My honda shadow fuse (30 amp) for ignition always getting overheated and melts after sometime, keep changing new fuse every 2 to 3 days.

Try checking your starter motor grounding for start as this indicate that the amperage continues to flow from battery to starter motor. Look for open or wounded cable along the line. make sure all connections are secure. Happy hunting. Cheers

Won`t start with the starter button

This tells me your problem is in the solinoid activation circuit. That is the starter button circuit.
On the solinoid are two large terminal posts that your battery & starter motor are connected to.
There is also a conector with two wires going to it.When you press the start button it compleates this circuit and activates the solinoid thus cranking the engine.

Check by removing this conector & probing with a multimeter check for voltage when you press the start button.

Hope this helps

Sprint 900 '96 Won't start.did three weeks ago,tried another battery-nothing.starter relay clicks when power applied directly,side stand switch seems to be ok

If no click from starter relay from switch, check kill switch is off first, then clutch switch, ignition fuse, contacts inside the switch (may be corroded or dirty) check by undoing the wiring connector from the left switchgear & check continuity across the start switch & across the kill switch,also check for continuity from start switch to relay

Hope this helps (if so please mark as very helpful)

I have a new battery, starter will spin the engine but ther is no spark or display on the digital read out except the word "start". checked and changed the 10 amp and 20A fuse

You may want to look at your ignition control module on the bike. This could be the culprit. I cannot think of anything else in the system except for the starter, the wires running to them starter, the battery, the fuses, the ignition switch on the handle bars, the ignition kill switch, and the ignition module. Make sure your kill switch is not set to the off position and is functioning correctly as this will kill spark. Also check to see if your bike has a neautral safety switch as some of the newer bikes will not throw spark unless they are in neautral.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try with the sidestand folded up and / or the clutch lever pulled in.  Likewise determine if there is a clicking sound when the start button is pressed:
  • if there is a clicking sound, locate the starter relay. Follow the big cable from the battery's + terminal; it would end in nother terminal of the starter relay:
  1. turn ignition ON and kill switch to RUN;
  2. short the 2 big terminals of the starter relay. Expect a big start. If the starter spins, startr relay is faulty.
  • if there is no click, then the safety interlocks are preventing the relay from engaging. Check the neutral switch/wire and sidestand switch/wire.
It is of course assumed that the battery is fully charged and that the battery cablles/connectors are clen and tight.  Postback result(s) of tests.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
