    bike started up fine but cuts out as soon as you release the starter button.i just held the button on to see what would happen and the bike revs up perfectly

  • sazuki1234 Jun 28, 2009

    have changed the run switch and its exactly the same,did think starter relay but guy at the breakers dissagreed saying that only it only controls the starter motor.

    bike fires up when the start button is pressed,as soon as the start button is released the bike cuts out.if you hold the start button in the bike starts and
    revs up ok but obviously i dont ride it as the starter motor will burn out

  • sazuki1234 Jul 04, 2009

    problem fixed it was the starter relay.the bike shop sold me a run switch but that did not work so i exchanged it for a starter relay and hey presto.

This is very rare. if the engine kill switch is in the same grip, check it , it may be shorting/ loose/ defective. only other possible thing is the starter relay switch

    an idea, check the ground terminal from negative pole to the engine block. the starter one may be good but not the other for the rest of the bike

Hi, Lamond 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.

Test the battery, bike batteries can and do just go open and dead all of a sudden, have been stranded more than once, filled with gas and then no start nothing, no lights nothing.

Bike wont start


when you drilled out the pilot jet you destroyed it. Even if you have jewelers bits they are to big. One drill bit size is 6 to 10 jet sizes. Replace the pilot jets, you are running WAYYYYY to rich at idle.

When i hit starter on the bike the headlights wont come on,does the it has to be started for them to come on?


The bike uses lots of power when starting so the lights go off so the starter has all the power it needs. They should be on when the bike is running

Bike wont start from hand controls and headlight wont turn on the bike will run but to start it i have to pop start it


If the battery is in good shape and fully charged - and the headlight fuse is not blown, then I suspect that the starter button is at fault. The starter button does two things when you press it: engages the electrical circuit that causes the starter relay to trip, and, at the same time, cuts power to the headlight.

It could be that the contacts inside the handlebar mounted starter button are dirty. You can try spraying some electrical contact cleaner in there - but you are likely going to have to replace the whole right side handlebar switch assembly.
