08 Chevy Cobalt wont start. Battery is good.?

Generally speaking, if the starter was dead it would not jump start.
Sounds like the key switch or the neutral safety switch.
You would need to know if the starter has power when the key is in the start position.

Last year the Battery Died, once the Battery was replaced and charged(Using a trickle charger), the Bike has not turned back on. It clicks as if its trying to spark (like when a car needs to be jumped) but...

Hi, firstly you are probably rite about the clicking being related to a discharged battery, i would suggest you try some jump leads of a car or another battery my guess is it will start or turn over and the clicking will stop, suzuki motorcycles of this eara did have some charging probs, running with a discharged battery for a prolonged period is not recomended.
Secondly its not unusual for even a new battery to become low state even when left continuasly on chage with a trickle charger, and eventually the battery.becomes dead through overcharging

Just bought a bike and the battery was bad .so i tried to jump it off with a car and it stop trying to turn over at all. went and got a new one and it's still not turning over.

It may have blown a fuse,

Be carefull jumping of a car battery, as when it starts and you give it a rev the car battery will accept more current than the bike can produce and can damage the charge circuit.

1980 Suzuki GS450, jump started my bike and now no spark, I blew the main fuzz, replaced it but still now spark, could the Igniter have gone bad or other ignition related problem be why it has no spark, I...

It is OK to jump start your motorcycle from a car battery as long as you do not crank the starter too long (it will burn the armature) and as long as the car/other vehicle is not running when you jump start your bike ( you can damage your electrical components( igniter box)). See if you can exchange one with a friend to see if that is the bad component.

Bike wont start , the solenoid just clicks

If you push the start button and the solenoid clicks the button is good. Find the solenoid ( usually by the battery follow the positive cable.) and jump the two posts with a screw driver, piece of wire , or jumper cables if the starter now works you need a new solenoid. At this point you either have a bad battery or a bad starter. Jump the bike with a good automotive battery (can be in the car just make sure car is not running or you could damage bike.) If bike starter still does not work try new starter brushes for a Goldwing they are cheao and easy to replace. If brushes look good ( not down to wear marks ) you need a starter ( bad armature ). I'm guessing the solenoid is bad (first choice) or you need brushes. Good Luck

Bike runs fine then stalls when ya try starting again it wont as battery is flat is this common on xs 1100 1980 bike will start no trouble via a jump start

If you have a voltage tester you will probably find a low reading on your battery. It takes a big powerful battery in excellent condition to start that monster, that's why it starts right away when you jump it...Good Luck to you !...Tim
