Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty wiring to any safety switch.
2. Safety switches loose at the mounting point.
3. Faulty kickstand safety switch.
4. Failed kickstand safety switch circuit diode.
5. Stretched side stand spring.
6. Side stand not coming up far enough to disengage switch.
7. Faulty clutch lever safety switch.
8. Faulty neutral safety switch.
9. Clutch not properly adjusted.

I layed my bike down gently and now it wont start. everything comes on but when i hit the start button lights go out but doesnt start. act like a starter or starter switch, but dont know if their is a kill...


Sounds like the battery terminals are loose. I know it doesn't make sense, but that's the most common cause of what you are describing. Just being a little loose will cause the power to fail until you turn the key off and on again.

Bike do not start, battery getting hot


Does the fuel rail prime (buzzing sound) when you turn on the key? make sure kill switch is set to run.

I HAVE A hONDA VTX 1300 I WAS DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY AND ALL OF SUDDEN IT WENT DEAD IT TRIES TO START BUT WILL NOT KICK OVER SOMEONE SUGGESTED IT MIGHT BE THE KILL SWITCH IS THIS A POSSIBILITY?


1st thing you need to do is see if the spark plugs have spark.Remove a spark plug,put the plug wire back on the plug, ground the spark plug to the engine ( lay on a bolt) turn bike on push start button check plug for spark.If it has spark then you have a fuel problem.Hope this help let me know what you find

2003 Honda VTX 1800 will not turn over.


Hi, Tldanie before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.
4. Check the 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.
5. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
6. FOB battery low or dead.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Faulty starter button.
9. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
10. Security alarm needs a reset.
11. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
12. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
13. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
14. Faulty ignition relay.
15. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
16. Check for engine trouble codes.
