Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check 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 if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

SOURCE: starting problem on rs125

Based on your description, its sounds as though you have a starter or starter selnoid problem. The starter selnoid is not engaging the engine at first and then when it does, is nort passing enough current through to the starter motor to get the job done.

Check that the clutch is in, kick stand up, and neutral light ablaze. Then try your start button. When you had it running and hit the button, the starter engaged at a slower speed then the bike engine was turning, which led to the stall. The stall means your starter works. If the starter works when the engine is running then it is wiring. Check your kick stand wiring along with the clutch wires which plug in on the handlle bar or where the clutch cable enters the engine.

2010 Bajaj Pulsar 180 DTSI will not start

Hi, Sreenath let me get this straight, your odometer is not working, the horn does not work and it won't start. You have a lot of problems that have been neglected and would take to long to address in this basic one question forum, the answers to these questions are way above my pay grade for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

2004 triumph Daytona 600.... will not start all it does when you push the start button is click. Have checked all 4 relays under seat and all grounds. Battery shows 12.2 volts and 166 cranking amps. Please...

If you check that is not an electric problem, and is not the batery, the problem should be from the starting motor. Try to start the bike by selecting the 2nd gear and pull, take a ride, till the bike is heat and try again to start the bike with the button, if the problem persists then you should change the starting motor. Before you change the starting motor, change the starting relay, is cheap and probably can solve your problem too.

More likely to be your ignition coils. They heat up and expand this can cause an open circuit which will close up again when it has cooled down. Although, a bad charging system may cause this problem. Check the battery voltage with engine switched off ( approx 12 volts) and with the engine running (approx 14 volts) If you are getting 14 volts then your battery is dead, if you aren't, then your charging system has a fault.

I have my 2003, RT1150 just two weeks now. 3 days ago I tried to start it but it spultered & did not start again on the button. I got it going on a push & then it started after that on the button...

Is the engine turning over quick enough, does the battery have suficiant charge, if not do not run this machine with a discharged battery failure of expensive electrical componants can occure, if the bike fails to start in the morning dont push start it, connect it up to a battery charger, or use ssome jump leads and connect it to a battery on another vehicle, a car battery is ok, the only thing is be carefull connect the leads on the poss side of the battery first and the neg not at the battery but at a suitable earth on the frame or engine try to start the bike if it starts ok re charge your battery or replace if at all worried about its condition,paul

Bike won't start, headlights and gauges light, hear a click coming from under the bearpaw, battery is new today from dealer

If you're hearing a clicking from the engine casing after changing the battery and the bike still won't start, chances are there may be a problem with your starter motor.

Either it's not contacting well enough to the battery (Faulty Wiring or Loose Connection), may be having trouble engaging/dis-engaging the starter gear, or it's just cactus and needs repair/replacing.

If you haven't tried push starting the bike, I'd suggest trying that first. Sometimes that can dis-lodge the starter gear if it's stuck, but it might require maintenance to ensure it doesn't happen again.

If you're un-aware of how to perform a rolling start, put the bike on a downward slope, or get a friend who can help push. Put the bike in first gear with the clutch in, and the ignition 'on' and roll the bike forward to a bit more than a brisk walking pace. Lift your weight from the seat and drop it down again quickly. As you drop down, release the clutch to engage first gear and hopefully the bike should spring into life. (Beware not to hold the throttle open, or stop moving too quickly, as this can cause an the bike to spring forwards or dropping of the bike as it stops suddenly)

If this fails, you may need to have the Started Motor removed to be looked at, as it may need replacing or repair by a professional.

Hope that helps!

2001 yamaha v sta 650 ran out of gas. And wont start back


I know that quite a few of the V-Star's have an issue with fuel that has Ethanol additives. What happens when the bike sits, even for as little as two weeks, the fuel start to "gunk" up in the carbs. If you had any trash in your tank, you could of clogged the fuel filter.

Something you can try, without a lot of diagnostic testing, is to add SeaFoam to the gas tank. Use the recommend amount of SeaFoam for the amount of gas it takes to fill it up (I believe it's about 4 gallons or a bit more). Also add 1/4 ounce of carb cleaner (B-12 works great).

Before doing any of the above, I recommend that you check the fuel filter, fuel lines, fuel on/off valve and remove the carb bowls to check for any trash or gunk.

Now you can try starting it again, but put a trickle charger on the battery to help keep the battery up while starting. Start out with the Choke at full and try to start it for a few minutes. If it starts, let it idle for 10 - 15 minutes to allow the additives time to run through and clean the fuel system. Make sure not to run the battery completely down.

If it still won't start, pull a fuel line off a carb and try to start it. If you are getting fuel through the line, it's, more than likely, not the fuel system and could be electrical. Although I've never heard of an electrical issue when running any bike out of gas.

One other thing... try starting it with the fuel on/off valve in the RES (Reserve) position.

This may sound silly, but check the Run Switch to make sure that it didn't get knocked out of place - even slightly.

I've been racking my brain since your question appeared over 3 hours ago. I hope the information that I have given you, will give you enough of a starting point that you can figure out the problem.

If you find this information useful, please vote. Thank you.



NOTE: I have done this, but I do NOT recommend it. Do this at your own risk. Get a spray can of starting fluid, find your air cleaner and give it a quick shot. Back away from your bike and try starting it. It will either start, or pop and backfire. If it didn't start, try one more quick shot, again backing away from the bike while trying to start it. Once the bike starts, and you have added the above chemicals, you shouldn't have any trouble starting your bike again. One more thing, if you use low octane fuel it will have Ethanol in it... use the SeaFoam every other full tank. Only use the B-12 once. If your bike is going to sit for an extended period of time, get a bottle of Sta-bil and add the recommended amount to the gas tank. Run it for a bit, shut it off, and shut off the fuel valve.

Honda XR125 L-4 3 month old battery, Bike has engine has started to die, exhaust goes pop (backfire?), engine cuts out all together, battery almost completely dead wont restart bike, starter just clicks...

put a volt meter across the battery terminals, should read over 12v stopped and rise to 13.5v with the engine running.
If the voltage doesnt rise there is a problem with the charging circuit.
Be carefull starting from a car, as this can cause damage to the bikes electrics, as the bike tries to produce enough amps to charge up the car when the bike starts, and overcook electrics.

Just bought a xr250 cant start not sure of technique,can an electric start be fitted

Electric start means a different engine. Yes, there is a proper way to start the engine. Four controls are on your bike to assist in starting.
  • The choke, used when the engine is cold. Pull the red knob for choke.
  • The " Hot Start " Lever, used when the engine is hot. Pull the lever to lean the fuel mix when the engine has been running.
  • The de-compression lever, always used.
  • The throttle, used to prime the cylinder.
Don't kick, instead, push the kick lever downward. You will feel the back pressure as the piston is going upward on the compression stroke to the point the pressure is great enough that the kick lever "locks up". You are very close to TDC. Now pull in the de-compression lever. Push the kick lever a little bit more to get the piston past TDC. Now release the de-compression lever. Give the throttle a 1/4 turn then let it snap closed. A diaphragm in the carb gives a shot of gas when this is done. DO NOT do this multiple times because you will flood the engine. Leave the throttle closed when kicking. Now give a strong kick through the full sweep of the kick start lever. Quickly get your foot off the kick lever at the end of the kick to avoid any chance of "kickback" from the kick lever. This happens in the case of a misfire, aka > backfire. It can be very painful, and can even break a leg. I am serious about that. Repeat the process (but without the throttle priming), until the bike starts. A good battery, a clean spark plug, a clean carb and clean air filter will also aid in starting.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Battery dead

If you don't have a multimeter, get one from Radio Shack or Wal-Mart. Measure the voltage across your battery while the bike is off. Then measure the voltage across the battery while you push the starter. Finally, measure the voltage across the battery with the bike running (if you can get it running). BTW, when jump starting a bike with a car, LEAVE THE CAR OFF.
