Question about Motorcycles

Why wont my r6 start?

I downed my bike recently & now it won't start. Pressing the starter button doesn't even make a noise. The wire leading to the brake light was cut in the wreck. Would that prevent the bike from starting? Other than that wire being cut, the only other damage that might prevent the bike from starting is the right handlebar or gas tank. The right handlebar (containing: starter/kill switch/throttle) was snapped off, however all wires are still connecting to it & are in tact. The gas tank was also dented pretty deep on the front right portion. It is a fuel-injected engine so it oncerns me that it could've disturbed something to do with that inside the tank... why won't my bike start?!? ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Just because the wires are still connected, doesn't mean they are intact or that the switches they are connected to are working. If the bike does nothing, it would indicate that the problem is most likely with the Kill switch. Check all the wiring in that region and make sure the switch still works.

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.

SOURCE: 1982 Suzuki GS850 GL will only run with the starter button held

Obviously the CDI is picking up power from the starter button. Check the ignition key switch for proper operation. Chances are that whatever fried the loom also fried part of the switch. Alternate to that, trace the wire powering the CDI system, disconnect it at the source (starter button connection), then find a power source that is live only when the key is turned on and then hook the CDI wire up there.

an I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

SOURCE: 03 gsxr 600 has broken wires on connector from r/handle switches!

Unless someone has a bike and gives you the correct information you will be fine. Otherwise I recommend tracing back. Also if you turn on ignition, ensuring wires are not touching each other. Ignition will be hot and you should have a common ground. Kill switch will not be a ground. Start switch should be same color as the one at starter. Also turn signal on left handle bar will cause intermittent power to connector. It may just be easier taking apart switches on right handle bar. Or inspecting where they are actually coming from specifically.

SOURCE: My 97 fatboy battery started

Well, I don't really know how to tell you to troubleshoot your starter when you don't have a meter. When you press the starter button, there is a starter relay that is usually mounted on the rear fender extension on the Fat Boy that engages and provides voltage to the starter solenoid. This voltage goes to the solenoid via the single small wire that plugs onto the starter just above the d-sided plate on the end of the starter. This wire goes hot which energizes the coil in the solenoid. The magnetism pulls the plunger into the starter. The plunger has a large round copper "washer" that make contact to two copper terminals inside the solenoid that connects the battery to the starter motor.

To test the starter, make SURE your transmission is in neutral. Take the 5-sided plate off the end of the starter. There are three 3mm bolts that hold the plate on. Behind the plate, you'll find the plunger and long spring. Using a large screwdriver or something, push the plunger into the solenoid as far as you can. The starter should engage and turn the engine. If not, look at the copper contacts inside the solenoid. If they look burned and are not smooth across the face, you may need to replace them. Rebuild kits are available both through Harley and aftermarket suppliers.

Good Luck
Steve

My r6 doesnt turn fully on disengage the headlight assembly everything turns on like normal.but then it wont turn over. I just get this buzzing sound from high and low beam relays. wiring looks fine


Hi, Sappo 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, 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. Faulty starter button/switch.
6. Faulty jiffy stand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
7. Security alarm needs a reset.
8. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
9. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
10. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

My 2006 r6 starter relay clicks like a dead battery and my bike wont start and my starter just spins my motor wont turn


Hi, Anonymous the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

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.

Error code 40, found problem, still wont start


you can disconnect the battery to clear the codes. If I remember correctly the code 40 is indicating an open injector circuit. You might want to check that area as well as the service manual for more detail

hi, your starter gear clutch bearing is "warning" you. It will fail shortly.That's a one way bearing that ""engages" your starter when you hit thr starter and "desingage" when the engine starts .
It'a also possible that you hear some noise when you stop the engine.Your bike must be around 30000 km ?

Sounds to me like the starter or starter relay, OR did you check all the fuses? When the starter doesn't click or turn over the engine it is likely a problem with it or the power supply to it. Start with the easy thing. check the fuses, then the relay.
The P0300 is usually caused by something other than the spark plugs or coils. A fuel/oxygen sensor can cause this code. I would say that doesn't have anything to do with not starting.
Good luck.

I have a 2005 r6...just put in a new battery..bike wont start


maybe, now this is just a guess! but your starter shaft is just spinning and not engaging properly..check starter or solenoid to starter wire connections are that they are on solid, and no corrosion, measure bat volt!!!... should read 12.4v "minimum"! if not battery is either going bad or might need a charge...correct voltage reading should be 12.7v to 13volt.
