SOURCE: starter motor will not work unless 12v feed put through relay

Have you checked the solenoid across the main posts i.e.connection from battery to starter,you may be hearing the solenoid clicking when you operate the starter button,but it might not be completing the circuit.

SOURCE: starter wont stop spinning

The starter relay may be sticking on start. Get someone to start truck and when problem starts hit relay lightly wih hammer. A cheap voltmeter will tell you if relay is sticking or still energised from ingnition switch after key release from start position.

SOURCE: 2005 v-star 1100 wont start . starter spins but

i worked for a large yamaha dealer. yes, those bikes are very well known for the starter clutch going out. it's about $85 to $125 in parts and about 1 to 1.5 hours labor. also, an oil filter relocator kit will save you money on servicing or changing your own oil.

How do I tell if I have a bad starter

yes ths starter can spin without turning over the engine.
1. the starter teeth could be stripped and is just spinning
2. the starter clutch could be out and is not enguaging the engin
You could either take the starter off and test it your self. You could get it rebuilt if it is broken or buy a new one.

My starter spins but does not spin my engine

yes the clutch could be stuck. It sounds like it might need to be rebuilt or just buy a new one. You can take it off your self to determine what is causing the problem. If you take it off you can test it buy touching the wires to a battery to see what happins.

Starter wont engage,battery is good

Remove the starter and bench test it with auto booster cables /put the black on the starter case and touch the stud on the rear of the starter. It should spin rapidly and the drive should advance if neither
happens the starter will need rebuilding or replacing. if the starter spins rapidly but the drive does not advance you may only need to replace the drive.

Hi,my kawasaki z250 wont start, starter solenoid has been repaced but just clicks

It could be "clicking" for three reasons. Poor battery voltage/contacts, no power to the motor or a faulty starter motor due to worn brushes.
The click you hear is the solenoid pulling the dog cog against the starter sprocket.
If the lights stay bright and do not "dip" in brightness when attempting to start your bike, suspect the starter motor itself or cables feeding it. Connect the battery possitive momentarily to the starter motor power contact. Does it spin? If not the motor is without a doubt faulty. If it does, your problem is the power cable from the battery and any ancillary relays.
Hope this helps.

I have a 2005 r6...just put in a new wont start

maybe, now this is just a guess! but your starter shaft is just spinning and not engaging properly..check starter or solenoid to starter wire connections are that they are on solid, and no corrosion, measure bat volt!!!... should read 12.4v "minimum"! if not battery is either going bad or might need a charge...correct voltage reading should be 12.7v to 13volt.
