Your starter isn't getting enough power. Try checking your water levels in the battery and charging it with a trickle charger. Good Luck!

SOURCE: bike won't spin over makes a clicking noise when

This sounds like your starter motor is stuck, this is not really my field, but maybe try to remove starter to see what the mesh gear looks like, maybe it is worn to much

CF moto v5 250cc is making clicking noise when try to start. Bike was serviced yesterday and this morning it is not starting.

If there is a series of rapid clicks check your starter solenoid, although a single click can be a low battery.

When I try to start the bike there is a loud screecy noise coming from the starter.I have someone hold there ear close to the starter and they claim the noise is in the starter. I just want to make sure...

Either incorrect starter motor if it was replaced or worn starter drive gear. Remove starter motor and check the condition of both the starter gear and engagement gear on the engine.

Tw200 electrical schematic

few things
new batteries only hold a little charge in them
so make sure it is fully charged
if your bike is making a clicking noise when you press the starter but is still not turning it is your starter solenoid
if it is making a clicking noise then your starter motor has seized and your solenoid is ok
if not making a clicking noise
it is possible your starter solenoid is broken and will need replacing
easy test is the starter solenoid has two electric poles on it
one going to the battery the other going to your starter motor
get a large spanner (wrench)
and with the ignition turned on
touch both poles with the spanner
("caution") this will spark a little so make sure there is no fuel close by
if the engine turns over
then your solenoid needs replacing

My chevy caprice classic 1994 , v8 engine 4.3 motor is making noise like klank klank sound also make car struggle when turn to the left struggle up hill and cut off sometimes

Sounds like you have a broken axle in the front drive system. You need to get this in to have someone look at it. If you need assistance let me know.

Tail light stays on with key off,push starter button dosen't work. bike was given to me as junk,i took a screwdriver to the solenoid and got it to run for a few mins wouldn't stay idled so it died.trying...

Hi the tail light can stay on if the ignition is turned past the off position till the park position, this provides a park light .
The lack of starting could be many problems, like a clutch or side stand switch, and the battery may be on the way out. So depending on if the bike is complete, you will need to start with a tune up, service, carb clean and get out the multi meter, to start checking the start system wiring.

Bike makes a clunking noise when it tries to start

Not so unusual ... when you press the button, you throw the starter gear into the engine causing a clunk noise. If it troubles you , have your Honda Shop check it out ... your bike is 30 years old now ...
