Question about Motorcycles
Posted by Anonymous on
Just fitted a new starter motor on my Honda VTR Firestorm. The bike started fine the first two times, however on the third go all my electrics blew. Any ideas where i should start.

The gear that the starter clutch grabs hold of has a smooth collar on the side of it that the clutch grabs a hold of. It has to be smooth (round) , not chattered , if you did not replace the gear also that is why it will not grab.

could be the wires need cleaning or new ends.or low battery power. check battery for 12 or 13 volts.if good on volts disconnect starter wire(dissconnect battery first) then hook up dc volt meter to starter hot wire and a ground at the battery.watch volt meter when u press the start button,do you still read more than 12 volts. if not replace solenoid.
