Make sure your connections on the starter relay are clean and tight. also, try changing the fuse anyway. sometimes even when they're not blown the carry too much resistance. if it still doesn't work, try bridgingyour starter relay using a pair of needle nose pliers. if it starts up, that means your relay is bad and needs to be replaced.

New battery only clicking or nothing! No dash lights when key is on 07 Vulcan Kawasaki 900


Hi, Mike before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.

Bike would not start.


If you are hearing the clicking sound that means that your starter motor's relay is trying to engage. Probably you don't have enough juice in your battery. Charge your battery very good and give it a try again.If still nothing happens then you must take out the starter motor and have it repaired. That spinning sound also suggests to take a closer look to your starter motor and your starter clutch which is located behind the stator's rotor.

Kawasaki vulcan 1500 classic just clicks when trying to start just charged the battery but the little solenoid that has a wire to go to the starter just clicks


Hi and welcome to the site,

Initially, have the battery externally charged and/or load tested.

Offhand, with a freshly charged or new battery and clicking sound persist, then possibly a faulty starter relay. To confirm, temporarily jump the 2 big terminals of the starter relay. If the starter motor spins, then the fault on the relay has been confirmed. Should still be a no go, then a likely concern with the starter motor or more particularly, the carbon brushes and/or the commutator segments.

Good luck and thank you for asking.

Sprint 900 '96 Won't start.did three weeks ago,tried another battery-nothing.starter relay clicks when power applied directly,side stand switch seems to be ok


If no click from starter relay from switch, check kill switch is off first, then clutch switch, ignition fuse, contacts inside the switch (may be corroded or dirty) check by undoing the wiring connector from the left switchgear & check continuity across the start switch & across the kill switch,also check for continuity from start switch to relay

Hope this helps (if so please mark as very helpful)

Same exact problem as you,


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

On the "...light click..." and no start, initially:
  • externally charge the battery;
  • install and try again and start the bike:
  • if no click, try with the clutch lever pulled in and/or the sidestand folded up;
  • if there is click but will not start, follow the big cable from the battery's + terminal;
  • it would end in the starter relay;
  • press on the start button;
  • determine if the click is coming from the starter relay;
  • short the two big cables/terminals;
  • if the starter motor spins, then faulty starter relay;
  • if not, then fault starter motor, most likely, the carbon brushes.

Postback results of checks/tests.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
