It could be a jambed starter motor. try tapping it with a hammer or putting the bike in gear and rocking it to release the motor.

Hi folk ! My problem is. I put a new starter motor on my kazuma meerkat 50, I think it was made in 2003. So when I press the little button to make it start it just make a clicking sound but it not really...

Normally, that clicking sound coming from your starter, because your battery don't have the charge to turn the starter over. The clicking sound your hearing happens every time you start it, just usually goes unnoticed because the starter itself is louder. The clicking sound is the solenoid engaging, which is a good thing. But otherwise if you have already tried jumping it(I mean jump it your battery could be bad) you may just have a loss wire, bad starter, or a bad battery. I have got Brand New Starters that where bad, it don't happen often but it does happen.

But odds are, your battery is dead or bad

Good luck! Hope this helps!!!

Springer classic clicks when trying to start

Make sure the battery is fully charged. Contrary to what some people will tell you, Harley batteries are not fully charged when shipped to dealerships. I work at a dealership and it normally takes a full 8 hour shift to charge a new battery that fits your bike. The clicking sound in normally caused by a low battery. Good luck!

I try to start the bike kill switch is on. all i hear is tickin under seat. the last few days bike has had a lazy start. just got it tuned up completely even put new clutch

Sounds like your battery is run down and the starter relay is clicking. Put it on a charger and see if it will start. If the battery doesn't hold a charge, it may be time for a new one.

Kawasaki vulcan 800 classic will not start now

Sometimes after trying to start a bike with a weak battery the starter solenoid gets damaged,or loose connections develop on the solenoid due to heat.It should be next to the battery.

My motorcycle wont turn over

how old is the battery? sure sounds like the battery is beyond it useful like and you need a new one.

even if the battery shows a full 12-12.5 volts, when put under a load (like trying to turn a starter and start a bike), it drops too low and the amps are not sufficient.

if the bike starts with a jump start, then replace the battery and all should be fine again.
