Your starter button has a short or bad (dirty) connection. try using a multi-meter an test the ohms. first the test the amount of voltage crossing the switch.

SOURCE: honda CB 250 1998-will not start, just clicking, battery is ok

Hi, Your problem lies with the starter solenoid, although you maybe using a fully charged battery to jump it, it appears to be sticking or possibly faulty due to trying to start with poor battery.
The starter solenoid is usually located on or near the Battery compartment, it is cylindrical and has two heavy wires attached to it 1 goes to the starter motor the other to the battery. If you are carefull you can by pass the solenoid by touching the heavy wire going to the starter motor with the jumper lead. Make sure the jump battery is connected and both the NEGATIVE leads are well secure. Put the NEGATIVE lead from jump cable direct to a engine mount bolt or engine itself Not the battery.
There you are FixYa'd

I had the same problem with my 636. It turned out to be just a cable problem. Try to see if all the electric cables work correctly and connected.

Good Luck,

I had the same problem with my 07 cbr but i found out that it wasn't the starter relay, the battery was just dead and i tried to recharge it but it was still dead, so it needed replaced with a new one. once this was done the bike started fine and the buzzing had stopped, so you should give that a go!

TVS Star city Self not working?


You will have to clean the start button, it may be fullof carbon thus no contact when you operate it.
To make sure of that's the problem. look for the starter solenoid switch in yur bike and jump it with a little thicker wire and it should turn the starter, if not than it's the starter solenoid switch whic needs replacing.
Hop ethis helps!

Well the good news is the click indicates the switch is working, when you press the switch the 2poles on the solenoide are joined together alowing the current to the starter,bridge the wires at the solenoide this should put power directly to the starter you wont need to press the start switch, if the engine does not turn over check the connections to both the battery and starter motor,

Bike wont start press the start button and nothing happens


Follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid. Unplug the two small wires going to the solenoid and use a voltage meter to see if you have continuity when you press the starter button. If you do not, clean the starter button or replace the switch assembly. If you jump the two cable terminals on the solenoid and the starter cranks, you have a bad solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works, you need new starter brushes. Any other problem with the starter and you will need to buy a new assembly.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Jump the 2 big terminals. If the starter motor spins, then it would be a faulty starter relay.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Dumb question, but did you check the fuse? if so,
wiring could be the culprit. You can dissasemble the starter button and check it (its just a contact button). Or you can jump your harness to see if rest is working (this requires some electrical knowledge).

Engine wont start...


since have change new battery, will the motor turn over? if the engine turn over or crank, check if you have sparks, by pulling the plug out and ground it to the metal to the bike and turn the motor over and see if you getting spark, double check if you are getting fuel, two items to make the engine run, sparks and fuel. if the stater dont make any sound when you press the start button it may be faulty serenoid to the starter, check starter and starter switch. you can get a light tester and test positve and negative contact to your serenoid/starter by hold or pressing start button to see if you get power to the starter. hope that help some
