Ignition problem on Zr550

My bike won't turn over. Battery is charged, indicators, stop light and horn work. When I hit the start button, the bike just clicks. Noise coming from the junction box. Any ideas on possible problems?

SOURCE: push starter button and no start

Hello,
Evansville! Nice part of the World.
Bud's Harley Shop still there?
O.k. daft thing is the off run switch on the handlebars turned to off?
Failing this will the bike start and run off bumping (Push start).
If it does take a look at the battery (Maybe Dead cell/s) or Starter solenoid wire/fuse.
Solenoid is located near the battery it is the cylindrical item with the main pos+ wire from battery going to it.
Good Luck! could do with a new Bud's Harley 'T' shirt as mines worn out.

Try wiggling the ignition key or perhaps turn off & on whilst holding the starter button in. Might be a dodgy ignition switch.

SOURCE: Press starter button then a crackling, clicking sound in Relays

You might first try and (jump) the starter at the starters bendex. To do this you could use a jumper wire or a screwdriver if you know what you are doing... (jump or connect together) the one (thin) red wire leading to the back of the starters bendex and the one (thick) cable also leading to the back of the starters bendex...being careful not to "ground" your jump wire or screwdriver to the bikes frame!!!... "Make sure you are in neutral"!!! ...Turn the ignition to the on position. You may have to engauge the start button at the same time you jump these leads. If your bike still clicks instead of turns over/starts.. Either the battery is not up to snuff...try boost starting from off you car or truck to determine this if you do not have the proper battery test equipment: (or) there is a loose or corroded connection. It is possible the connection at the starter button also is crusty. To clean your connections well, "You must first disconnect the negative terminal at the battery"!!!... Clean all the contacts/connections the same way using an electric contact cleaning spray (that evaporates) and a med-soft bristle brass wire brush. You really should start from the battery to the starter and also the starter button if accessible. A light wipe over from a clean cloth sprayed sparingly w/a light oil or silicon afterwards on all cleaned areas should keep them being that way again till next year if your bike is ridden in fowl weather often and/or left out in the elements. I find it hard to believe that all the relays went out simultaniously!!!...It is almost impossible. Guzzi-Guy

SOURCE: 92 FXR bike will not start or even turn over

that clicking sound is the starter solenoid. check all large cables for corrosion and tightness. as for the signal lights, neutral and horn, i think a wire is grounding , thus causing the problem with the bike not starting also. check at ignition switch and at handle controls for a loose wire that may be touching the handlebar. basically inspect all the wiring on the bike

First check the main fuse, then battery connections,then check battery for voltage,ignition switch. If your battery went dead you need to check the charging system.

Bike won't start, starter soliniod clicks but starter won't roll over, it will hum and not turn over.


Those are the typical symptoms of a weak battery. Try either to charge the battery, try a jump start or replace the battery. Lights or horn working do not give an indication of the battery charge status.

I have a 98 yzf1 bike was running been having issues wuth the fuse for the head light started bike today pulled down the drive way bike shut off turned the key off then back on n nothing no lights horn...


Hi, Sounds like you have a bad ignition switch. Also check alternator, so that battery is charging.
Do a test for me, start engine disconnect battery. If alternator is working you should have light and horn. Stop, engine reconnect battery. This will give you a better idea where the problem lies.
Good luck.

So my bike was riding fine up to Thursday night. I just changed the oil on Sunday and every time I rode it there were no issues except for the bike taking a while to turn over about half way through a 4...


As I'm sure you suspect, changing the oil and sparkplugs should have nothing to do with the symptoms you've outlined. The symptoms "seem" to indicate a problem in the charging system. Either the battery is in need of replacement or the regulator is fried. One way to test which is at fault is to jump start the bike (be VERY careful doing this as a car battery will fry your system if you connect it wrong). Once it is started, remove the jumper cables. If you need to rev the engine slightly to keep it running, this is normal as a dead battery is a big draw on the electrical charging system. If you can, have a friend hold the bike RPM's around 1500 and disconnect one of the battery leads on the bike's battery. If the bike continues to run (my suspicion is it will), you have a bad battery. If the bike will not run, then the charging system is the culprit. It could be something as simple as a regulator or as complicated as the generator (inside the engine).

1978 yamaha dt250 no brake lights,turn lights,no horn only front headlight good fuse runs fine


MAKE SURE THE BATTERY IS IN A GOOD STATE OF CHARGE, ON THE OLDER BIKES WITH AC LIGHTING THE BATTERY ACTS AS A RESISTOR, HENCE IF THE BATTERY ISOLD AND NO LONGER WORKING, WHEN YOU RUN THE MACHINE ALL THE BULBS WILL BLOW, STARTING WITH THE NEUTRAL LIGHT, AND SO ON, AS THE BRAKE LIGHT , HORN , AND INDICATORS ALL WORK ON THE DC ELECTRIC SIDE IT WOULD PROBABLY BE A GOOD IDEA TO CHECK YOU ARE GETTING 6VOLTS FROM THE BATTERY TO THE IGNITION SWITCH, YOU COULD LOOK FOR BROKEN WIRES AROUND THE HEADSSTOCK AREA, OR CORRODED BLOCK, AND OR BULLET CONECTORS ALSO IN THE COMPLETE HARNES.

Bike was sitting in garage. Dead battery. Charged it. Fuses good lights horn ect work. Nothing happens when I press start button. No click. Nadda. Ignition? starter? Or am I way off base? Thank you!


I would have the bbattery tested, bike batteries are prone to just going oopen and u have zero output, it is very unlikely anything else is wrong.

I think it is likely to be a flat battery - It would be worth topping it up and charging it for a long time then checking the voltage. You could try jump leads as well, but that doesn't work if the battery is really flat.

When a battery is left to go flat it often knackers it permanently (I know this to my cost!), they lose a percentage of their charge every day, especially if they get cold. If the bike isn't going to be used it's best to take it off, keep it indoors and charge it occasionally.
