Most likely you battery is dead. Take it in and have it tested. Most auto parts stores and Walmart will test it for free. After you replace the battery, you will want to buy a trickle charger and give it an overnight charge once a month. You can get them for about $20 if you shop around. If your battery checks out then it could be you alternator.

SOURCE: My aprilia rs125 2007 jus cut out on me and wont fire up again

  • Start with a new spark plug. Now do you see spark? If not, check the side stand kill switch. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. If broken or out of adjustment, it would kill the spark. Check for a broken wire at the side stand switch and coupler. Try moving the kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it.
  • Check the fuses. How good is the battery? Try a jump start from your car battery. Is the handlebar kill switch on?
  • Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. Check the wiring harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center casing. If still no spark, get CDI system and coils checked at the dealers shop.
  • Are the fuses good?
Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer? Thanks!

Not starting off starter but goes with a push

Hi, Malcom Smith famous dirt bike rider extraordinaire and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test if necessary.
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 if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

When I try start my aprilia rs 125 it just makes a clicking noise anyone know what it might be?

I had this problem last month and it turned out to be the starter motor cable had disconected from the relay. The clicking noise is the relay clicking in but the starter motor not initiating. the cause could be as simple as the cable disconnected but most likely it is your starter motor has gone. Hope this helps.

My scooter is a 125 cc 02 will not start it gives

Check your battery connection. It sounds like you have dirty terminals and it just needs a clean. There does not seem to be a manual available for the RX but plenty for the RS, check , and there might be some more information in one of the manuals.

Bought a 52 plate rs 125 tonight, rode it home and engine cut out on me, i then tried to get it started but starter motor just made a clunking noise, i bump started it but it cut out again and now i can't...

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Even with the "...lights are all working...", it would appear to be an electrical issue. Initially, have the battery externally charged and load tested. This is to eliminate the battery possibility.

Offhand, basic checks would involve tracing at what point, connector or wire that the +12 is missing or goes down when starting. Required would be a testlight preferably or a voltmeter. The wiring diagram would also come handy.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

When i press the start button it doesnt do anything....i can hear a click noise but thats will bump start but i havnt ridden it far after its bumped just in case.... why would it not be starting...

If you can hear a click then your solenoid sounds like it is working.First you should check your battery voltage and if not over 12v charge your battery and this should solve the problem.If not it could be your starter and you can come back to me.

Please do though leave positive feedback if I have helped
