SOURCE: Starter problems

you need to check and see if you have 12volts at the relay and if you have 12volts at the wire from the switch on the relay. if you are getting power to the wire from the switch then you may have a bad starter relay.

SOURCE: although the battery is brand new my v-strom dl

It seems that your bike's battery is not getting charged while running, but if your Headlights are working then the Dynamo is OK but the rectifier/battery charging has conked out. It might be just a blown fuse or it could be in the rectifier coil/circuit. It would be best if you could get it checked from their authorized service center and get the part replaced since you said that the bike is brand new & even the distributor from whom you bought it should take responsibility for a faulty piece of equipment.................sodeep

SOURCE: Starter won't engage.

how long did you hold the starter engaged while you were trying to start it? if you held it for a while you burnt your starter up. Or your starter could have just locked up. i had had a few do that. oh, one more question, does it click when you press the start button?

Make sure you full travel on the clutch lever. If it has been bent closer to the bars, it may not be releasing the clutch fully. If this is so, heat the lever up fairly hot to prevent the lever breaking if you try to straighten it. There should be about 3/4 inch of free play at the lever end. Hope this helps.

07 Honda Element 5 Speed. Wont start sometimes when clutch is engaged. Battery is new, starter was recently replaced and a mechanic recently installed a new ignition all within the last 8 months. Work


This may or may not help but the clutch has a sensor to avoid it starting while clutch is out. You should be able to take it off and do a continuity test on it. You can get a cheap tester at harbour freight, red wire on one side black on the other and turn meter to ohms. If it has continuity it will go to zero, if not press in the button on the sensor and see if it does then. If it does not read zero either way then it is the switch. It could be when it is pushed in or when it is left out.

So the problem has been occuring for a year and you are just now trying to fix it? Sorry, I just simply do not understand why people do this...keep driving it until it won't drive anymore even though you KNOW it has a problem....Maybe you can explain this to me???

If you can hear the starter clicking when you try to start it, then you have a bad starter. If it makes no noise at all. then you most likely have a bad clutch switch.

Jus bought a 91 ninja 600 and wont send any power to the starter


Lets start with the basics...
1. be sure your battery is in good shape and fully charged ( at least 12.6 volts)
2. starting procedure- ignition key to 'on', tranny in nuetral, right hand kill switch to 'run', pull clutch in fully and hit starter button.
3. does it do anything? clicks?... If you get nothing then the problem is likely in the clutch switch, kill switch, or the starter button. You will need a wiring diagram and volt meter to trace down where the power is lost. If you are getting 12 volts to the starter but its not engaging then you can suspect the starter/ solonoid.

PS... My clutch switch has been going bad for a few years now ( Im too lazy to replace such a trivial thing as a safety switch ;). Sometimes I need to hold the start button and work the clutch till the starter engages.
