Question about 2002 Aprilia RS 125

Hi i have a problem with my bike it is an 2001 aprilia rs 125cc. When i press the ignition button i hear a clicking noise coming from what i think is the starter relay? ( located at the front of my bike, behind the radiator ) and the starter motor wont spin or even try to crank the engine. i have also tried 2 bump / jump start the bike but still no start :( i think the battery is fine though as the lights work when ignition is on. can any1 help me with this problem? any suggestions and help appreciated thanks :)

This is usually a weak battery, dirty battery connections or both. In some cases the solenoid for the starter is bad requiring the starter to be serviced or replaced.

Disconnect the 2 cables on the starter relay and touch them together. This should make the starter turn and may even start the engine if the ignition is on. Be careful though, one of the cables is connected directly to the battery so don't let it touch the frame and only connect the 2 cables momentarily or you could burn out the starter motor wiring. If it turns over then the relay is at fault and needs replacing.

Hi mate this happened to me and you just need a new startor motor, One of the wires in the startor motor has blown so just buy a new one. There around £30-£40.
