Hmmm, don't like to state the obvious .. but it sounds like you have a flat battery? Have you tried bump starting the bike, or use an external booster pack (or jump leads) to get it going?

The bike won't start


Hi Thomas put the bike in a high gear and turn the back wheel to make sure the motor is turning over. If it is try booster cables. If that don't work follow the plus cable to the starter solonide and cross the two heavy cables with a screwdriver if the starter is still not working you will need a starter. Regards Jim...

I have a suzuki gs 500e 1990. when the i try aind


Two possible answers here,
1, The starter motor is stuck and the click is just the sound of the relay.
2, Not enough power in the battery to turn the motor over, the lights/horn etc may still work but the starter takes a hell of current from the battery and there may just be not enough to turn it over.

Press starter button and nothing happens


How familiar are you with the Piaggio MP3 ?

For the electric starter to operate, not only does the ignition key have to be turned to the on position AND the ENGINE STOP SWITCH
4c5a26a4-8f3e-4f2a-92bc-1dd0107fdb36.jpg

be in the RUN position .....

BUT you must also APPLY REASONABLE PRESSURE to either of the BRAKE LEVERS.

On another note, the MP3 has an IMMOBILISER
There is a TRANSPONDER CHIP in the IGNITION KEY that is detected by the bike's "security system" and the CODE in it is read and compared to the one stored on-board.

I've never tried to start a MP3 with a key that has the wrong code or the transponder chip missing, BUT, if it is the same as my car (Ford Mondeo) the STARTER MOTOR DOES NOT TURN - NOT EVEN A CLICK

Light/Horn is on but can't electric start(with flickering sounds when start button pressed) the bike


By "flicking" sounds, do you mean a series of rapid "clicks"?

Usually a series of rapid clicks when trying to start is an indication of low battery voltage, or a bad electrical connection, usually a ground.

Get an automotive jumper cable (use only ONE of the leads, let's say the BLACK one), hook one end to the battery NEGATIVE terminal, and the other end to a bolt head that mounts the starter motor to the engine case, and see if that helps.

If so, it is a ground issue.

An old time Harley trick is to attach a SECOND ground cable to the battery negative terminal, and the other end, remove one starter mounting bolt, slip the bolt through the cable "eye", and reinstall the bolt.

The problem in this case is that most bike engines are made out of aluminum.

While aluminum WILL conduct electrical current, it's NOT the best conductor in the world.
This is why copper jumper cables are much better than aluminum ones, and why they found out (the hard way) that aluminum wiring in a house is no good!

NOW, if when you try to start and you get a SINGLE click, this usually means either a bad starter relay, or bad starter solenoid.

The bike was running fine in the evening. Rode to work parked the bike took the key out. The battery was dead in the morning. Put the 10 amp charger on and the motor started to turn over with the key off!...


your starter button is malfunctioning. maybe some oxidation in the switch. when starter button is pressed in that can cause your other electrical stuff to not work.

If you turn the key on, you should get a strong headlight, horn and brake light when the battery is strong. If these are weak, then the battery is dying. If the battery is strong, hitting the start button should turn the headlight OFF momentarily. If there is no change or the headlight is not coming on then the starter button could be damaged. The battery voltage should stay above 11 volts when you are cranking the engine or loading the electrical system with brake light, horn or high beam activation.

The starter solenoid is down by the battery and if you jump across the big two terminals with a screwdriver (bike in neutral, please!) that will jumper the battery power directly to the starter motor. If the battery is good, the starter should start to spin the motor over. If the battery is good and there is no sound, then the starter motor is bad. If the starter motor spins over, either the starter solenoid is bad or the wiring to it is defective.

You need a a 12v test light to check the starter solenoid wiring circuits. A good Volt meter will tell you about the state of the battery (should be over 12v resting), as well as whether the charging system is working, once you have determined that the battery is okay. You need to monitor the charging system once the bike is running to see if that is part of the problem or not. It should crank out upwards of 13.5 volts when you rev it up to about 2,500 rpms.

Check the web for V-star forums and groups who may know about any problems unique to this model.

Voltage problem when running bike


The voltage regulator should present 13.5 to 14.5 volts at the battery to charge it properly (engine at fast idle). I'm not sure if the V regulator is adjustable or not. If not, then it probably needs to be replaced. The alternator appears to be trying to do it's job, although it may have an open diode or winding if the alternator is 3-phase. An oscilloscope is the best tool to check for all three phases working properly. Good luck!

the starter solinoid is not working if it has an electric start, try kick starting it, if it won't start check the points or the ingiter coil.
