Light/Horn is on but can't electric start(with flickering sounds when start button pressed) the bike


By "flicking" sounds, do you mean a series of rapid "clicks"?

Usually a series of rapid clicks when trying to start is an indication of low battery voltage, or a bad electrical connection, usually a ground.

Get an automotive jumper cable (use only ONE of the leads, let's say the BLACK one), hook one end to the battery NEGATIVE terminal, and the other end to a bolt head that mounts the starter motor to the engine case, and see if that helps.

If so, it is a ground issue.

An old time Harley trick is to attach a SECOND ground cable to the battery negative terminal, and the other end, remove one starter mounting bolt, slip the bolt through the cable "eye", and reinstall the bolt.

The problem in this case is that most bike engines are made out of aluminum.

While aluminum WILL conduct electrical current, it's NOT the best conductor in the world.
This is why copper jumper cables are much better than aluminum ones, and why they found out (the hard way) that aluminum wiring in a house is no good!

NOW, if when you try to start and you get a SINGLE click, this usually means either a bad starter relay, or bad starter solenoid.

As i was hitting the start button on my 06 gsxr 750 my finger slipped only letting it just barely engage and then my bike cut out guages go in and out here and there and when i hit the starter it just has...


Sounds like the starter motor has engaged and then stuck out. Either take the starter motor off to make sure it is fine and then reassemble. Or if your feeling brave, I'd try putting it in gear and then push the bike forward/backwards to see if the starter motor returns to it's original position. Then retry to start it with the electric start switch.

Good luck

2007 KLX250 KAW. Out of the blue, when hitting the starter button, all electrical functions quit (horn, lights, nuetral light, etc.) After sitting 5-10 min. everything electrical "reset" as if...


the starter hase a loose field inside the starters casing. That will cause the armature to rub and short out the entire electrical system when hitting the starter button. At times it will not in your case therefore the bearing or armature shaft is bent or very worn causing this to happen at times.

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

Fault with electric start on my Suzuki GSF 250 Bandit


Check that the clutch is in, kick stand up, and neutral light ablaze. Then try your start button. When you had it running and hit the button, the starter engaged at a slower speed then the bike engine was turning, which led to the stall. The stall means your starter works. If the starter works when the engine is running then it is wiring. Check your kick stand wiring along with the clutch wires which plug in on the handlle bar or where the clutch cable enters the engine.

No power to start button


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

In most electrical designs of bikes, there are safety interlocks that prevent starting if not satisfied. You may want to try starting:
  • with the clutch lever pulled; and / or
  • the side stand folded up.
Postback results.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
