check your battery connection make sure they are clean and tight also check the acid level in the battery and the ground cable if your battery is over 3 yrs old it my not be holding a charge well also.

Battery hot wire hot at solenoid but no fire at start switch.Can jump solenoid and it will turn over. What do I look for?


The start switch ? Do you mean the starter relay your jumping the solenoid on the starter and it starts right but when your in the vehicle and you turn the key you get nothing right if this is correct the starter relay is no good when you turn your key in the steering column lock that moves the ignition switch on the steering column sending voltage to the relay then the relay sends it to the solenoid which then powers up the stater motor then it cranks the engine//// so the relay is bad

Moto Guzzi breva 1100 won't start clicks at relay.


Take a look at the starter solenoid. There are two larger wires, on the back. One from the battery positive, (main hot wire), the other goes to the starter motor (If you jump these terminals the starter will spin but will not engage the flywheel). Look at the wires and nuts on the solenoid, especially the starter motor side make sure they are clean and tight, have not gotten hot and started rusting. Also check the voltage on the solenoid wire, (smallest) wire from the start button. In some cases there is a voltage loss on this wire. Next time it will not engage the starter right away, make a jump from the main power battery terminal on the starter to the solenoid wire. If it starts right up every time, you need to add and wire in another relay to carry the voltage to the solenoid from the start button, (a relay to work the solenoid, lol). If that test does not work or help.. Tap on the starter motor with a hammer. if it catches and turns the engine then, the motor brushes are worn and need to be replaced.

I own a 2005 bonneville 790. Its was dumped on its left side and now it just clicks at the relay. I can jump the solenoid and it starts and runs just fine so I dont think it would be the starter and...


Hey J.. make sure your battery has the necessary CCA..(Cold Cranking Amps).. this is the true measure of a battery.. and you have replaced the starter solenoid..?.. hhhmm...??
... Still sounds more like the battery is low on CCA.. ....bypassing/jumping the solenoid allows the engine to start with having/needing the amperage necessary to make the solenoid contacts activate... Amperage is what "pushes" the voltage.. without the required amperage (CCA).. voltage, when relating to starting your bike is "just voltage".. it will run a light, but NOT start a motorcycle...Good luck.

It started out just clicking when u pushed the starter button an now it dont do nothing ive got a new battery in it can you tell me whats wrong its a 660 grizzly 2004


get some wire that's equal in size or larger gauge than the battery cable (a jump start cable works great) and connect from one side of the solenoid to the other momentarily. The starter should engage. If it doesn't, you have either a dead battery, bad battery cable, or the starter relay is bad. You can also try a jumper from from the battery positive terminal to the starter side of the solenoid. If it engages then the the battery cable from the battery to the solenoid is bad. To test the relay, put 12 volts dc on the trigger side and the relay contacts should close. You'll hear them close with a click.

I need a wire diagram for a 1981 harley davidson superglide for the starter wireing


The wiring is simple for a starter. You have a starter solenoid on the bike and a starter relay. When you press the button to start your bike, the button has a wire that runs to the relay. This triggers the coil in the relay and pulls the contacts in. You have three wires that run to the relay for the starter. One hot wire, a trigger wire from the starter button and a wire from the relay to the solenoid. When you press the button, the relay pulls in and makes the wire going to the solenoid "Hot".

The solenoid has three wires going to it. The large battery cable goes to the "long post" of the solenoid, There's another battery cable going to the starter from the bottom of the solenoid, The wire from the starter relay goes to the small terminal of the solenoid. The small wire from the starter relay is the trigger wire for the starter solenoid. When this wire goes hot, it magnetizes the solenoid and pulls the plunger inward. The plunger bridges two large contacts in the solenoid to put high current voltage to the starter.

If you need a schematic, contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net. I cannot send a file via this medium but I can direct e-mail. Remind me of what you need when you contact me.

Good Luck

Bike wont start , the solenoid just clicks


If you push the start button and the solenoid clicks the button is good. Find the solenoid ( usually by the battery follow the positive cable.) and jump the two posts with a screw driver, piece of wire , or jumper cables if the starter now works you need a new solenoid. At this point you either have a bad battery or a bad starter. Jump the bike with a good automotive battery (can be in the car just make sure car is not running or you could damage bike.) If bike starter still does not work try new starter brushes for a Goldwing they are cheao and easy to replace. If brushes look good ( not down to wear marks ) you need a starter ( bad armature ). I'm guessing the solenoid is bad (first choice) or you need brushes. Good Luck

How do I test for a bad solenoid on a 1994 Suzuki Intruder vs800


I'm assuming when you press the start button will not turn over. Look for the solonoid ( Relay) and you will see two heavy guage wire one goes to starter and the other to the battery terminal positive. Where the two wires meet at the relay jump with a heavy wire 10 guage it will by pass the relay if it starts your relay is bad.

Make sure your battey is hot bike in nuetral and clutch lever squeezed

Bike wont start replace start solenoid.when solenoid was out took a jumper cable from hot side battery to the starter and one from orther side of the battery to the starter case and the start turned. put...


You didn't mention what year model your bike is so I'll just generalize my response. Since you said that you replaced the solenoid, I'll assume that your bike is a 1988 model or earlier.

Your bike has a starter relay if it still has the stock wiring on it. Harley has used a starter relay since 1965 on the first model of ElectraGlide. Usually, it's underneath the battery tray or the seat or around that area.

On the back of your solenoid, you have three wire connections. Two very large connectors and one small connector. Make sure your bike is out of gear (in neutral) and use an old screwdriver to short between the large connector that comes from the battery and the small wire connection. The starter should engage and try to start the engine. If the ignition switch is on, it will start the engine. The starter will turn using this method with or without the switch being in the "on" position. If the starter works using this method, the problem is in either the relay or the neutral switch. If the starter does not turn the engine over, the problem is in the solenoid.

Now, let's check a few things. The small connector on the back of the solenoid should have a green or pink (depending on year) wire on it. Using a voltmeter or a test light, make sure you have voltage at the connector when you press the starter button with the switch in the "ON' position. If not, follow the wire to it's source, the relay.

The starter relay can be one of several different designs used throughout the years. It could be a small plastic cube, a small metal can, or a round phonelic relay. The relay should have four connections on it. A "hot" wire, a wire from the handlebar switch, the wire going to the starter, and a ground. The ground may be through the case itself. On the older Shovelhead bikes (1984 and earlier) there was a small short black wire that ran from the starter relay to the transmission for the ground. This wire must be intact or the relay would not work due to lack of a ground.

When you turn the switch on, one of the wires to the starter relay should become "hot". When you press the start button, you should hear a slight click and another of the smaller wires should now be "hot" as well, the one going to the starter.

On some year (1972 and later) models, the neutral switch was wired in with the starter relay. This was to prevent the bike from starting while "in gear" by disabling the relay. You'll have to figure this one out for yourself since I don't know what year model your bike is.

Now, you said you had power to the solenoid when you pushed the starter switch. So, let's assume that the starter failed the first test to told you aboue. If so, the problem is still most likely in the solenoid. Inside the solenoid, there is a large plunger with a copper disc on it. When you depress the starter switch, the coil in the solenoid becomes magnetized and pulls the plunger towards the back of the solenoid. This does two things, it engages the starter drive with the ring gear on the outer clutch drum and makes a high current electrical connection. The copper disc makes contact between the two large connections on the back of the solenoid from the inside. This connects the battery to the starter motor through the solenoid. If the black phonelic plate on the back of the solenoid is cracked or the contacts inside of it are badly burned, it will not work.

Now, if the solenoid is working correctly and you are getting voltage to your starter, it could be the brushes or something inside the starter. This is indicated if the starter trys to turn the engine over but just can't. It won't have enough power if the starter field windings are bad.

I hope I've given you something here that will help you solve your problem. This is basically the electrical part of the starter system. There are mechanical parts as well. If you hear the starter turning but the engine doesn't turn over, you have a mechanical problem. You can either repost or you can contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net I'll help if I can. Good Luck!

1988 springer softtail


sounds like you have a voltage drop (that is a loss of power between the start button and the starter solenoid) the wiring on that circuit may be too thin. to remedy this problem you need to put a relay in the circuit. let me know if you want to know the details of how to wire the relay up.
