Put the bike in neutral, find where the positive wire is bolted to the starter, hook a jumper cable to the positive terminal on the battery and with the ignition on, touch the other end to the positive bolt on the starter. if the starter works, then its likely your kill switch is malfunctioning. take it apart if necessary clean or replace... hope this helps.

2008 kawasaki Vulcan 500 LTD will not turn over


Hi, Mike before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. 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.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter have failed or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.

I have a 2009 Ninja 250r. The bike will not start with the electric starter. It will start if you push start it. I replaced the starter and it's still not working. Normally when you turn the...


My first impression was that the battery hasn't got enough power to run the starter ans supply the computer with the 9 volts necessary to create ignition. When you push start it the battery is supplying enough voltage for the engine to start.

In short you need to service and charge the battery or a new battery.

I got a 1998 500 ninja and it wont start it just clicks


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, ensure that the battery is fully charged or better yet have it load tested.

Offhand, locate the starter relay by following the cable from the battery's + terminal. It would end in 1 of 2 terminals in the starter relay. Jump the 2 big terminals; expect a big spark. If the starter spins, then the starter relay is faulty.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

This may sound a bit simple but check the starter solenoid function by running an external wire to the thin wire terminal from the positive post on the battery.

If the starter does nothing then the starter is bad.

What your describing is a typical solenoid / starter problem. Given the car is now 10 year old, it is quite possible that either the solenoid or starter has failed.

Thanks for using FixYa!

I have a 89 kawasaki ninja 250 that wont start just click


sorry to say it but the battery cannot handle the load, it may work with small things like lights and low amperage devices. but when you crank the starter motor your pulling far to many amps and the battery cannot put out meaning that the battery has a bad cell or it may just need a battery refill, today we just replace the batteries. it;s safer and a lot easier. plus you get money back for bringing in your old one. but the battery is not able to supply the proper voltage and amps anymore and should be replaced. a very simple test turn the key to run and turn your headlights on. then press the starter button see if the lights do not completely go out. if they do you have a dead battery cell. good luck with it, and thanks for using fixya

2006 Kawasaki Ninja 250 will not start


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your post "engine will not turn start", are you referring to the starter motor not turning or is it cranking but will not run?
  • if no crank, check the starter relay;
  • will not run, verify that there is spark at the end of the plugs;
  • will not tun, verify that there is fuel in the bowl of the carb (drain again);
  • if it has a fuel valve, set to PRI.
Incidentally, any clicking sound when you press START? Pls postback updates.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
