The battery wire to the starter is corroded at the starter motor terminal, clean or replace.

Starting problem.


You have replaced the fuel lines wrongly, the vacuum pipe and drain pipe are on the wrong way round, take the thin pipe off the tank drain, the straight down one, and put it on the angled fuel tap otlet, and put that one on the drain from the tank.

Hi, Rmn_dan a motorcycle starter relay is an electronic mechanical switch that has a small coil winding around a piece of metal that requires low amperage and thin wires to be activated. When you turn on your ignition switch power 12 volts is sent to the relay coil which in turn becomes a magnetic contact point that pulls a spring-loaded contact point to itself completing an electrical circuit that allows more amperage necessary to be accessed by the starter solenoid which in turn acts in the same way as the relay but on a larger scale with its stronger heavier contacts making available the necessary amperage to turn the starter motor. If your battery has low voltage it, in turn, makes the magnetic contact point weak in trying to pull its counterpart to make a connection. These relays are usually encased in a plastic housing that may or may not be sealed depending on the quality of the product. When activated they will produce a small amount of heat to their metal components which in turn can create the perfect environment for condensation to form depending on weather conditions and how careless you may be with a water hose or sprayer while washing your bike. After a period of time, several months to several years depending on circumstances this condensation is the start button for electrolysis and the slow build up of corrosion which ends by preventing the magnetic contacts in making a solid connection and alerts you to this situation with the customary greeting "CLICK". The relay is inexpensive and needs to be replaced however in a pinch they can be forcibly opened cleaned and resealed with silicone. In a nutshell, motorcycle starter relays take in low amperage and send out higher amperage when activated and for curious minds, the voltage remains constant at whatever your battery reads at the time, this is why a fully charged battery 12.5 volts or better is the best insurance on preventing starter motor problems and increases the longevity of all the starter circuit components.

Regulater set on fire


Common problem with Storms, you will need a new regulator and battery, the alternator can be checked by measuring the resistance across the 3 wires, 0.2 to 0.5 ohm but they rarely go wrong
Make sure the replacement reg has a heatsink, newer Honda versions do
