Sounds like a lose wire or connection, could also be a battery amperage problem.

R1 starting problems

It may be a faulty starter solenoid ( or magnetic starter switch, whichever your bike has). If it seems to start fine when cold, but not when warm, you'll need to locate where that switch/solenoid is ( on my Goldwing, it is mounted on the side of the battery box).
Follow the positive lead from the battery - it will go to the sol/switch.The switch will have 2 larger red wires - one from the battery and the other from the starter. When the bike won't start, you can try bypassing the switch by using 2 small flat bladed screwdrivers. Placing the tip of each screwdriver on the nut side of the switch ( not on the threads) with the key on, touch the shafts of the screwdriver together - you may need an assistant to hold the clutch handle in to complete the circuit. If it starts, you've found the problem. If not, you may have a faulty starter.
Hope this helps and thanks for using Fixya!!

Yamaha wont start

Hi Denver, and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine run switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, loose, corroded or broken battery cables, especially the "NEGATIVE" cable at both ends (solenoid chatters).
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
7. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

I have a 2006 Suzuki GS500F the bike ran fine and started fine for 2 weeks after i bought it used, and it started fine all day until the bike wouldn't even try to start. I thought the battery was dead so i...

Hi, I would still suspect the battery. Lights and ignition do not really draw much current neither does the bike when running.. Your battery goes almost flat when the starter is engaged lots of amps are required. Try this check: remove the battery (undo negative lead first please) then connect a high wattage bulb across the terminals see how long it takes for the bulb to dim. If the bulb is still bright after an hour re charge the battery (please use a dedicated bike charger max output 1 amp). Re-fit the battery (connect positive lead first please). If bike still does not start check starter solenoid is activating it should click when you press the start button. Hope this helps.

When i went to start it the ignition key worked fine & all lights came on but when I hit the start button everything went black - as if the circuit breaker kicked in. what would be making the circuit...


Take the battery out and take it to an automotive parts store. Ask them to load test the battery. Sometimes a battery will short out internally and do this. I have a diesel pickup that has done it twice and hit has two batteries. Everything seems fine until you hit the starter, then "bang" everything goes dead and in the truck, both batteries are fried.

On your bike, if it's a short somewhere, when you hit the start button, you should be able to hear and feel the main circuit breaker break. Then, a few seconds later, you should be able to hear it reset. If it is the breaker, you'll need a schematic to determine what is one each fused circuit. The reason you need to know that is because whatever is causing it is NOT on a fused circuit or it would blow a fuse instead of trip the main breaker.

If you don't have a schematic, I have one for a '99 model. It should be about the same. If you'll contact me off forum, I'll e-mail you a copy. This forum will not allow me to send a file over 150kb in size. If I reduce the size that much, when you blow the picture back up it's so distorted that you can't make it out. contact me at Remind me of what you need.

Good Luck

Sounds like the starter solenoid went bad. Turn the key on, Make sure it in N. Take a screwdriver and jump the terminals on the solenoid and see if it turns the starter over and starts the bike. If it does then the solenoid needs replaced.

Engine cranks but won't start

If it is an electrical Fuel Pump, you will hear the pump whirring as soon as you turn the key to "ON". If you can't hear it, the fuel pump is bad. If it is a mechanical fuel pump on the engine, remove the hose that goes into the carburator. And crank the engine. It should pump the gas out without a problem. If it does not, the fuel pump is bad. Also check the relay to the fuel pump and the shutoff valve. It is more likely that it is a relay problem since it hits a bump and goes off then it carries a current again. Probably a bad relay under the hood for the fuel system.

Motorcycle wont start

Check the battery connections, especially if you hear a click just before it goes dead. I know that on my bike, when this happens, the screws that hold the battery cables in place have backed out and not getting a good contact. You would think that with a bad contact that it would stay dead when you turn the key off then back on, but oddly, everything comes back on normally until I hit the starter button. Check the cables.
