Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try starting the bike with the clutch lever pulled in and/or the sidestand folded up. If it does start, then the interlocks (safety features) has to be checked.

If still a no go, determine if you hear a clicking sound. If yes, follow the big cable from the battery's + terminal. it would normally end up in the starter motor relay. Jumper the 2 big terminals while starting the bike. Expect a big spark hence jumper on the nuts, not on the threaded portion. if the starter motor spins, then it would be a defective syarter relay. If the motor stil fails to spin, then it would be a faulty starter motor; most likely the carbon brushes.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Battery voltage drop


Sounds like the starter motor itself. Does the engine turn at all when you try to crank it?

Start button was stuck and now button wont start the honda shadow vlx


Sounds more like the battery may be dead... take the battery to O'Reilly's or Autozone and check the CCA (Cold Cranking Amps).. amperage is what starts your bike.. not voltage.. then see what happens...Next, its time to trace voltage.. make sure you are getting voltage from the battery to the solenoid.. then from the solenoid to the starter,,

Bike wont start just quit working one day it doesnt try to turn over battery is good and holding voltage, have checked all fuses, starter relay, kill switch, ran up and down that bike with a volt meter...


Push the starter button if your hear the solenoid clicking the starter button is good. If there is no click from the solenoid you may need to clean or replace the starter button.Follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid. Jump across the two cable terminals, this should activate the starter.If the starter works now you have burnt contacts inside the solenoid. replace the solenoid. If the starter does not turn over, try again tapping on the starter with a plastic hammer if the starter works now you need starter brushes. If the starter will not turn over with direct power (bench test) and the brushes are good the armature is probably shorted. You will have to replace the starter as an assembly parts are not available to rebuild the starter.

Hi, I would still suspect the battery. Lights and ignition do not really draw much current neither does the bike when running.. Your battery goes almost flat when the starter is engaged lots of amps are required. Try this check: remove the battery (undo negative lead first please) then connect a high wattage bulb across the terminals see how long it takes for the bulb to dim. If the bulb is still bright after an hour re charge the battery (please use a dedicated bike charger max output 1 amp). Re-fit the battery (connect positive lead first please). If bike still does not start check starter solenoid is activating it should click when you press the start button. Hope this helps.

Bike wont start. just clicks. battery is ok. need help?


I assume the engine is not seized and the battery is charged and good. Push the starter button, if you hear a click from the solenoid the button is good. Now , jump the two cable posts on the starter solenoid. If the starter works you have a bad solenoid. If you push the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works, you need new starter brushes. If anything else in the starter is keeping it from working you need a new starter , the starter parts are not available from the manufacturer.

Starter wont engage.


Are u crossing the terminal at the button end or the starter motor terminals? if the termianal u r crossing is at the starte end check the button terminal end and cross them. It could be just abadly corroded button. If not that replace the starter relay, buy a haynes mannual to see where is located, the mannual will be a good investment.

Motorcycle wont start


Check the battery connections, especially if you hear a click just before it goes dead. I know that on my bike, when this happens, the screws that hold the battery cables in place have backed out and not getting a good contact. You would think that with a bad contact that it would stay dead when you turn the key off then back on, but oddly, everything comes back on normally until I hit the starter button. Check the cables.
