Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1.Ignition/Light Key Switch not in IGNITION position.
2.Engine Stop switch in the OFF position.
3.Discharged battery, loose or corroded connections (solenoid chatters).
4. Bank Angle Sensor tripped and Ignition/Light Key Switch not cycled to Off and then back to Ignition
5. Starter control circuit, relay or solenoid faulty.
6. Electric starter shaft pinion gear not engaging or over-running clutch slipping.
For a prime suspect please visit website below and good Luck.

2007 TE510 electric start not working, kill switch on bars still working, starter motor still good and will crank, still able to kick start. Battery all good. All connections and fuses seem ok, but...

If you are talking about a remote starter ... with a key fob ... what were you thinking when you put this on a dirt bike?

If you are talking about the sart solenoid, jump it with a piece of heavy wire to see if that is the problem.

My sportster will not start. it only makes a clicking noise when i press the sart button. the clickin sound is coming from under the seat next to the fuses. Please help

It sounds like the starter relay is making the noise. Here's check you can make. Look at the starter from the right side of the bike. there is a five sided plate on the end of the starter. Just above the plate, there's a singe wire connecting to the starter. Unplug this wire and connect a test light or volt meter to the wire. Turn the switch on and press the starter button. If the light lights up or the volt meter shows battery voltage on this wire, the problem is the starter. If no voltage is show or the light does not light up, the starter relay is bad.

The starter relay is a one inch cube looking device. Take the seat off and look for it under there. They used to be on the backside of the oil tank. Feel of it when you depress the start button. If this is what is clicking and you don't have voltage at the wire on the starter, the relay is bad. This is a common problem.

However, if you get voltage on the wire at the starter, your starter solenoid is bad and will require the replacement of the starter.

Good Luck

HI, my car for the past few months has been giving me trouble with not wanting to sart right away. The key just goes click click click and then the engine will turn over and it will sart no problem. I...

It could be the solenoid on the starter that is clicking and needs replacing.

My question is--- Why is this still an issue a few months later?
--- You need to start diagnosing these problems when they first happen,so you resolve them and have reliable transportation again.

Was the Battery Tested in any way or you just replaced it in a wish and hope type approach?
