Hi, Anonymous 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.

Hi,
Electrical problem.
Better check the ......
  • Relays and clean the terminals.
  • Ignition switch terminal and harness.
  • Clean the harness connectors.
  • Main fuse might have blown.
  • Check the starter switch.
  • Try to directly connect the starter to battery, just to check if it works, if not the prob would be in the starter motor.

Hope that helps you out!

Hi, Rodr48 and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check 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.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

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).

When I push the electric start button on my 2004


use a test light to find out if there is power going to the starter. take the rubber cover off the top of the selonoid. it should be some where near the battery. one post of the selonoid should have power constantly and the other one should not untill the start button is depressed. if the light lights when you hit the button, there is either a problem with the power cable going to the starter or the starter its self.

Bike has electrical power , but starter doesnt do anything, battery is good. how do I differencate the problem? starter , coil , other electrical componet? it was just laid down before it start going bad....


Check the start solenoid. Check the large terminals. Do you understand how it works?

When you press the start button, you energize a electric magnet that pulls a disk against the bottom of the two large terminals. Over time, these connections become burned and they may not make a connection.

So, one terminal is the battery, the other goes to the starter. check for voltage on the start side with the key on and the start switch depressed. Voltage = starter trouble. No voltage = your solenoid may need replacing.

Prove it ... with a jumper cable (really, a automotive grade jumper cable ... not a little wire) connect the battery side to the start side to see if the starter will spin.

I hope this helps you
