The first thing i would check is battery voltage and the connections because that is what it sounds like and if that is all good do a voltage drop test across the solenoid to double check before replaceing the solenoid. The clicking sound is the relay working just not enough voltage to hold it.

2008 honda cbr 600rr won't start a clicking sound from the starter solenoid relay


Sounds like a bad solenoid...BUT - Make SURE the battery is fully charged!! - using a short screwdriver CAREFULLY jump the two big main threaded studs on the solenoid ..(wire from battery stud and the stud with wire going to the starter)(sparks WILL FLY so don't do this near open gas containers or fumes!!) .. when you jump the solenoid - if it tries to start, its the solenoid... IF not.. you need to check all the connections, have the battery checked by a battery shop to see if the amperage is up to snuff..(you can have 12+ volts but no amperage to push the voltage).. this would indicate a bad battery.
Do this, repost the results.

My 92 600 katana wont start. It wont even turn over, when i press the start nothing happens. the battery is good i charged it up and all the lights work but it still wont turn over.


If the clutch switch, the neutral safety switch, and the side stand switch are all working correctly, then test the starting system. When you push the starter button you should hear a click , so you know the button is working.Follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid. Disconnect the two wires that activate the solenoid, test the two wires from the harness make sure the needle on your voltage meter jumps when you push the starter button, this means the button is good. Take a wire and jump the two posts on the solenoid or touch the two cables together. If your starter works, then you need a new solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works you need new starter brushes. Anything else wrong with the starter and you need to replace the starter assembly , the manufacturer does not make replacement parts for the starter.

Well the good news is the click indicates the switch is working, when you press the switch the 2poles on the solenoide are joined together alowing the current to the starter,bridge the wires at the solenoide this should put power directly to the starter you wont need to press the start switch, if the engine does not turn over check the connections to both the battery and starter motor,

Bike wont start. just clicks. battery is ok. need help?


I assume the engine is not seized and the battery is charged and good. Push the starter button, if you hear a click from the solenoid the button is good. Now , jump the two cable posts on the starter solenoid. If the starter works you have a bad solenoid. If you push the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works, you need new starter brushes. If anything else in the starter is keeping it from working you need a new starter , the starter parts are not available from the manufacturer.

Press starter button and hear click sound from battery box bike wont start but i can push it and it will run


Follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid. If you jump the two cable terminals on the solenoid and the starter cranks, you have a bad solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works, you need new starter brushes. Any other problem with the starter and you will need to buy a new assembly.

WON'T START,BUZZ SOUND WHEN I PUSH THE START BUTTON


Sounds like a bad battery or a bad starter relay. Take the battery out and take it to an automotive parts house. Ask them to load test the battery for you.

If the battery test good, reinstall it in the bike making sure your connections are good. Press the start switch and listen for the buzz. Look for the starter relay. It's a one inch plastic cube. When you find it, press the start button while holding the relay. Is this what is making the noise?

If all you feel out of the starter relay is a simply click, and the buzzing is coming from the starter, you're solenoid may need new contacts installed in it or your solenoid might be bad.

Good Luck

1995 kaw jet ski 750st push start button and it just clicks it was running great new battery and new plugs


Open the electronics box and jump the solenoid . If the starter works you have a bad solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap on the starter, and the starter works , you need starter brushes. If the starter has burnt coils, has a shorted armature , or is wet inside, you need a new starter.
