Bike would not start.

If you are hearing the clicking sound that means that your starter motor's relay is trying to engage. Probably you don't have enough juice in your battery. Charge your battery very good and give it a try again.If still nothing happens then you must take out the starter motor and have it repaired. That spinning sound also suggests to take a closer look to your starter motor and your starter clutch which is located behind the stator's rotor.

Sprint 900 '96 Won't start.did three weeks ago,tried another battery-nothing.starter relay clicks when power applied directly,side stand switch seems to be ok

If no click from starter relay from switch, check kill switch is off first, then clutch switch, ignition fuse, contacts inside the switch (may be corroded or dirty) check by undoing the wiring connector from the left switchgear & check continuity across the start switch & across the kill switch,also check for continuity from start switch to relay

Hope this helps (if so please mark as very helpful)

Ducati starter motor

I have 2 monsters in my barn right now, the starter motor is, well is not the easiest. First, is it the starter gone bad or the relay? Check the fuse. Then check the relay, bottom right of the air filter housing, rubber mounted, make sure it cliks when the key is on and the starter button is hit, then check the battery, make sure it is good, then if all this checks out, check the wiring. If it is still a bad starter, remove the crank case cover on the left, rotate the starter gear to align the bolt, unscrew the 3 bolts, and replace the gasket when putting in the new starter. Don't forget to take the battery negative off, and wire on the starter motor. Good luck.

Starter motor

I wrote to this last week but it looks like my letter got sent out to space. The book says to check a bunch of stuff in the line to make sure your starter is the culprit, but I take it , it works, you just want it off. Remove the crank cover on the left side, line up the starter ring holes with the bolts, don't forget the wires, that's it.
