Clicks means a starter solenoid has gone bad... wont start is a whole other issue... possibly a CDI issue

SOURCE: bike wont start

I would check for compression on the cylinders. a engine has to have fuel,fire and compression or it wont run. Check the specs to get the operable compression levels.

Hello, Check and make sure that battery has a full charge of at least 12.5 volts. If not Charge battery to that level. Next check all Grounds good to be sure not loose or corroded. If Battery is Ok and holds a charge and has been checked for a dead Cell and wiring is good Discounect the Wire going to starter and check the voltage it is getting when pushing the starter button. If getting 12 volts or higher then the Starter is the problem. If you get less than 12 volts or non at all the Starter Relay is bad! Replace it! To check the Starter before replacing it run a direct hot wire to the connection at the starter from a good hot battery! If it does Nothing then the starter is in need of work or replacement! First check out the starter brushes . Most of the time the problem is worn out brushes! If that is not the problem then it is either the rotor (Armature) or field coils in starter. REPLACE THE Starter! Hope that helps! NOTE: When running the direct hot wire from battery to starter make sure the bike is in Neutral and switch off! You do not want it the leave home without you! LOL!!

SOURCE: the wires going to the voltage regulator keep burning up.

Common problem with poor quality parts, the regulator is the problem, the generator is working other wise you would not have fried the wiring, you answered your own question. someone telling porkies to get more money from unsuspecting client?
The regulator controls the voltage not the generator, the generator only supplys the voltage it cannot overcharge unless the regulator is not working properly, simple!

SOURCE: Two years ago my Voltage Regulator went bad and

If you're going through regulators that often I would suggest going after the stator. Make sure it's not grounding out on the chassis. Find the 3 yellow or white wires that are connected to the regulator. using a meter in OHMS ( looks like the horseshoe ) with the bike off check wire one (red ) to wire 2 ( black ) then wire one ( red ) to 3 (black ), then 2 (red ) to 1 ( black ) and 2 ( red ) to 3 ( black ) , then pick one ( red ) and black to the chassis, motor, ground. somewhere metal on the bike. The first series of tests you should get some sort of numbers, ( which should be somewhat close in numbers ) When you go to ground, Chassis you should get no numbers, OFL, OL, or the horseshoe sign if you get numbers there, the stator is bad and your transmitting ac voltage to the chassis.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Piaggio fly 125 tries to start but then makes a constant noise like a car revving.

Hi, Mark the starter drive/Bendix 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.

Electrical Problem

Your alternator/generator must be not working. If it works, it should be able to recharge the battery when your bike is running.

sorry didn't actually see the post before my first comment, if it is only when the bike is warm or hot but not over heated I would suspect the same thing, faulty starter. "replace or rebuild"

My 1996 Yamaha FZR 600 won't start. The lights turn on, but when I hit the start button, all I hear is a fast clicking sound. Maybe from the digital ignition box. I have tried jumping it from a car...

sounds like the battery to me, have it checked by a sparky, they dont give you much warning before they **** themselves, I had to replace mine only a few months ago

My gmas 98 avenger (2.0) wont start. i bought her a batt about 6 mnths ago. it ran fine. but she let it sit for a week, now no start. batt is dead. afteri charge it wont turn or even make a sound, then...

Back to "square one" If battery was drained by a short, etc and sat for a week like that, likely the battery is now doa...Have it tested. Then start checking for source of this point everything is suspect. Put an ammeter between either battery cable and battery and start pulling fuses till draw is gone. then check system that fuse serves. Yes \, could be a bad alternator but you really should test before wasting time especially if it's not that.
