Self Starter problem with Karizma R (Sep 2007)

I have a problem with my Hero Honda Karizma bike.

At times when I switch on using the key, the neutral light (green) does not light up to its full brightness. In this case as soon as I activate any electrical device like horn / signal / headlight, the green light goes dead.
Even using the self starter does not work, and neither does the kick start work.

The only work around in this case is turning the key multiple times, when once in a while the neutral light glows at full brightness. In this case all the functions work as normal (I am able to start the bike with self starter or kick start). I have checked the battery and cleaned its terminals myself, and the battery seems to be fine.

Can anyone please throw some light on whats wrong with the starting mechanism / bike?

Check the fuses too and basically all the wiring, there could be somewhere a loose connection also check the wires at the solenoid switch.

Hi, Sharathchandra and the usual suspects are:
1. Neutral light burnt out
2. Faulty neutral switch.
3. A loose bulb in the socket.
4. Faulty wiring from the neutral switch to the light.
5. Grounded neutral light circuit.

My karizma bike will not start....please help

  • Start with a new spark plug. Do you see spark? If not, check the side stand kill switch. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. If broken or out of adjustment, it would kill the spark. Check for a broken wire at the side stand switch and coupler. Try moving the kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it.
  • Check the fuses. How good is the battery? Try a jump start from your car battery. Is the handlebar kill switch on?
  • Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. Check the wiring harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center casing. If still no spark, get CDI system and coils checked at the dealers shop.
  • Got gas and is it turned on? Clean air filter?
  • Drain the float bowl, it may be filled with water condensation.
  • carb, head and intake manifold mounted tight?
  • Have dealer check the CCVI system (Carb Controlled Variable Ignition).

    Self Start problem...

    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.
