XV1100 Starter does not engage when trinig to start engin

sorry didn't actually see the post before my first comment, if it is only when the bike is warm or hot but not over heated I would suspect the same thing, faulty starter. "replace or rebuild"

Honda Hornet wont start

I am having trouble with your english translation of the symptom. However, if your bike starts and runs fine once it is warmed up and initially starts fine in warm weather this indicates a clogged choke circuit in the carburator and will require a thourough and proper cleaning of the carb.

Can't start my Honda CB400-Four 1997. Battery seems to be ok. Could it be the Regulator/Rectifier? It has been lying up over the winter. It did start a couple of weeks ago, cut out and hasn't

if the headlight dies right out when you crank the motor then the battery is usually dead. It may read on a voltmeter that it has 12 volts but that does not necessarily mean the battery is charged.Have the battery checked and charged properly then try and start the bike again.Regards

Bike will not start, clicking noise, lights and indicators working ok - done this twice in a week but started ok, but now won;t start at all

If there is a clicking sound it is most likely the battery that is too weak to pull in the solenoid and hold it there while the starter drains the current. I think you need to either charge or replace the battery.

I have a 1992 Honda Nighthawk cb250, with only 800miles on it. Been ridding around the last two weeks and this happened while I was out: I was letting off 1st and it reacted like I stalled. I went to start...

This motorcycle is very reliable and troble free and the ingtion module seldom if ever fails. The kick stand switch will not let the motor run in gear with the stand down. The switch can fail or get unplugged or dirty, The buke will run if the bike is in neutral with the stand down but the neutral light has to work. If the battery is low or bad 10 volts ( it'll crank but it don't start) the lights might look Ok too. Unless you remove the plug wire from the plug and place it connected to a spark plug or spark tester and see it frie or not fire your not a good test. The plug could be foulded with gas the cylinder can have lost compression( overheating) lack of oil. The ingtion module should hav some dielcctric compuund in it to dis a pate heat. this is normal, the coil is more likly and does fail the the module. Modules fail from bad batteries and jump starting wrong to hooking the battery up backwards. The coil fails from overheating and high mileage. Freezing and cracking in cold storage and may work awhile afer broken. Your bike is old even though the mileage is low. Electrical connections fail as they rust and reconning them all is agood place to start. You dont have to know what the wiring connector does just unplug it and replugf it to get a new connection. The battery cable on the ground side is well known to fail and following the wire to all the places it bolts on and unbolting and replugging or bolting all of these and cleaning any rust found way repair the bike completely/ You say thats a lot of work . Most bikes that have sit for more than a year have this done just to get them to run and a new battery is key as are it's connections. Skipping staps to get to thend quickly it's the step you skipped that might leave you a long way from home or not let you go in the first place.

Honda Melody won't start

sounds like it could be the power regulator that is usually under the seat or beside it under the plastic cover. It acts like the distrubitor on a car. If damaged by not having a fues it could be failing. Also check the coild to make sure it is working correctly.
