If you turn the bike on and all the lights are bright the battery should turn over the bike.If you push the starter button and the solenoid clicks the button is good. If you jump the posts on the solenoid and the starter works the solenoid contacts are burnt replace the solenoid ( the starter is good). If you hold the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works, you need starter brushes. If you take the starter apart and don't have continuity (using a voltmeter) between every other contact on armature it is bad replace the starter with new or rebuilt.

Starter quit working on 1989 camaro 350 tunport put a new one on tsill wont do aneything when every thing ealse works

Grab a volt meter and check your battery out. Take a look at the condition of wiring and connections on the battery, alternator and starter. whatever the cause it seems likely the start is not the issue here, often time 'no start' conditions can be linked to a faulty charging system. There is an excellent article available regarding this topic on,

Trouble shooting problems with your starting system

when trouble shooting a problem with an electric started engine ie; a suspected faulty starter,solenoid,ignition switch etc. it is common to 'jump' the solenoid, this is done by connecting the two large wires at the solenoid , on most vehicles the solenoid is connected directly to the starter (its the smaller cylinder) however it is very common for ford to mount them on a inner fender, you can simply follow your positive wire coming out of the starter, it will lead first to the solenoid then finally to the positive battery terminal, the solenoind consist of three wires, two large ones and one much smaller, one of the large wires will lead to the positive battery terminal, the other large wire, directly into the starter , the small wire is the power supply to the solenoid (operated by your ignition switch) which is what engages to connect the two larger wires, if you jump the two large wires *(i commonly use a wrench or two screwdrivers whatever it takes , be carefull of the sparks, or loom yourself a switched wire for more safety)* the engine should turn over! it will not start unless you turn on the ignition... this is a simple way to 'bypass' the solenoid for trouble shooting purposes, this example i just used a week ago and determined that i will have to remove the starter for a closer inspection, as it was just replaced two weeks prior! in this case the starter was shot. more on that some other time.

Trouble shooting b 10 not starting

Do the lights come on? if no check the main fuse. If they do, supply current from the battery directly to the starter motor to test the starter(don't be in gear for this if you like your motorcycle upright). If it spins, take apart the starter switch and clean the contacts. Finally if that doesn't do it, you need a new starter solenoid. If it doesn't spin, you have a bad starter motor.
