Engine will not turn over, clicking sound

Hi, my honda 650 has been stood over winter in my garage. when i went to start it it would not start. There is a clicking sound when I try to turn over the engine, do you think that this is probably the solinoid? I have had the battery on charge a couple of times over the winter, charging it on the bike, but do you think that this may be the problem? Do you think that the battery is probably finnished & I may need a new one?
Thanks
Niel

Three things cause your problem:

1. Dirty terminals

2. Battery flat or not holding charge (Cactus)

3. Starter motor has had it and all it can do is click the solenoid in and out.

Solution: Take it to an auto-electrician and he will diagnose your problem in a few seconds and rarely charges for this service. OR, you could attempt to jump start it from another bike, if it is the battery, it will turn over.

    The problem lies in the starter motor , more than likely the carbon brushes worn

Just sounds like either a jet is blocked in one of the carbs or maybe a spark plug is fouled up.tap the exhaust down pipes with your hand quickly to see which one isn't getting hot to see which ones not running.

are you testing the spark through a new spark plug?

Sounds like the starter solenoid went bad. Turn the key on, Make sure it in N. Take a screwdriver and jump the terminals on the solenoid and see if it turns the starter over and starts the bike. If it does then the solenoid needs replaced.

Won't start after winter in garage with fuel stabiliser


your battery is dead. The electric clicking is a telltale sign that the battery is weak or depleted and does not have enough juice to turn over the starter. This is extremely common when the car is left to sit for an extended period without being used.

the clicking you hear is the starter solenoid trying to engage the starter, but the battery is to weak to do so.

There are a couple solutions. First you can get a set of jumper cables and jump the s2000 with anther battery. Once the car is running the battery will alutomatically begin to recharge.

the second is to buy and use whats called a trickle charger or 'battery tenderizer' this is a small device that you plug into the car and it will automatically keep the battery charged over extended periods of time without the risk of over charging the battery. If you use one of these it will also slowly charge yoru current battery enough overnight for it to work in the morning.

I have a yamaha xvs 650 dragstar converted to a trike it has been stood for 3 months. when i try to start it there is a fast clicking but the the engine does not turn over but will start easy with a bump...


bike needs a new battery. battery is no longer capable of holding a full charge no matter what a trickle charger says. batteries wear out over time. expect 2-3 years from a motorcycle battery.

the clicking sound you hear is the relay flipping between open and close as it tries to get the right amount of amperage to turn the starter.

The battery may need to be replaced, the battery is not holding a charge or you didn't run car long enough. Try boosting again and let the car run for about 1/2 an hour to 1 hr. Then try to start the next day. If it doesn't start you will need a new battery. Even when you don't drive this vehicle especially in the winter time you should start this car and let it run for about 10 minutes once every week. Good Luck contact me if you need more help
