Sounds like the solenoid is sticking. Follow the main starter wire lead or biggest wire from the battery to see the location. First try to disconnect the small wires to this or if no success replace the solenoid.

SOURCE: starter, starter switch and kill switch not working

when he jumped it with the charger he probably fan too much curent through the system witch made a relay stick so when you hit the start button it dosnt shut off the kill switch probably went bad because of it also trace the wires from the start button and find the relay that they go to and check it with a multimeeter how they work is it uses a little amount of curent to controle a big amount

SOURCE: 09 buell xb12r firebolt, problems when bike is

I have an 04 firebolt and sometimes it can be a chore getting nuetral on it also. Are you sure your not just skipping it by going to far with shift lever? I sometimes have to have it in 1st or 2nd and lightly let out on the clutch handle. Just enough that the clutch wants to ingage the gear . I rock the bike forward and back a little while looking for nuetral.

Either that or the relay that connects the positive lead to the starter is shorted. If you can get into the relay, you may be able to hold the contacts open if the switch is shorted or the contacts may have welded themselves together

SOURCE: i have a 2005 buell xb12r firebolt. problem is it

There should be a starter relay somewhere (under the seat, maybe). These can go bad. Low voltage electricity is a pain. Make sure that EVERY connection is tight and does not have any corrosion under them. Try tapping on the starter casing lightly with a screwdriver handle or small tack hammer while pressing the starter button. Might have a dead spot on the armature.

SOURCE: 2004 buell xb12r does not crank. battery is good,

If the lights dimand the battery is known good, The starter is pulling too much of a load. Remove the starter and bench test with some jumper cables to see if it drags. If not, e engine is not locked up. Remove the spark plugs and tsee if it cranks over with the starter before pulling the starter.If it is humming, You have an excessive load. Good Luck, Ned

2007 Buel XB12R Firebolt my red light stays on and I don't know what it means. Just had the fuel pump replaced the day before. Please reply. Thanks


Hi, Kym with the red rocker switch to "OFF" position turn the ignition key on allow needles to sweep, then turn the red rocker switch(on-off switch) to on you should hear pump prime and all dash lights should be operational, "WAIT" till the light with the V-Twin pistons on it goes out, now start the bike. If the above V-twin light which is correctly called the CEL light comes back on you have a problem. For this scenario, you will need your service/owners manual if you can not find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Buell, despair not, for a mere zero $ you can download another one. For more information about your issue and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need please click on the links below and for more specific information or questions at no charge please feel free to contact me at xlch@mail.com. Good luck and have a nice day.

Fuse


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.

I have a buellfirebolt that the headlights fuel pump and starter isnt working on


Check your fuses. if they are all good - is the ignition switch good on it? Does the Check engine light turn on then off after a few seconds before you start the bike? If not the ECM could be bad.

2004 Buell XB12S Ignition Fuse Always Blows


I assume you've got the right amperage of fuse in there? Your starter may be starting to fail, and drawing more current than usual when it attempts to start the engine. It's also possible that bad bearings or some other internal problem is creating more friction inside the engine than normal, thus making the starter work harder.

What are the meanings of the warning lights on a 2004 buell xb12r the one i am wondering about looks like the v-twin motor it lights up when i start the bike then turns off i did not get a owners manual...


Good news for you pal, that is the same as an engine checklite in your car.It's supposed to light up when you turn the key on and then go away after starting. You can start to worry when it stays ON.....Good luck to you friend,Nice Bike !...Tim
