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.

If u havn't checked the battery with an ohm meter, do so. If the meter reads 12.50 or higher start looking at your starter. The solinoid would click and a bad starter would nothing. You could try tapping on the starter with a small hammer while pressing the start button. If it starts or at least turns over, u need a starter.

SOURCE: battery wont charge

The most common problem is the 3-wire connector being burnt between the stator and regulator/rectifier. It has also been commonly reported that the regulator/rectifier and/or stator may need replacement.

SOURCE: bike wont start battery is ok 12.5volts lights

I had a very similar problem last week. Coming home from work, the bike went dead with no electrics at all. Battery and fuse ok. Turned out that the red wire from starter solenoid was broken internally, if wiggled, then power came back. So i cut it off the plug at solenoid and crimped a connector on it, and then connected it to the red terminal on the solenoid. Bingo, it now runs better that it ever has. One proviso here though, by doing what i did, it removes the fuse from the circuit, so not ideal, and needs sorting at some point.

SOURCE: My bike won't start

Either, your terminals are dirty, your battery has died or your starter motor has died. Having a manual would help, just Google it and hunt around, you should be able to find a freebie. But you need to get it started and to an auto-electrician, he will diagnose your problem in seconds, and generally it is a freebie.

Wont start batteerry checked ok , if i jump it with cables it starts , but will not start again the next day


the battery may seem ok, but it's obviously discharging itself or not charging during riding.

Try this...charge the battery with a battery charger.
disconnect the charger, and put a volt meter on the battery.
Start the bike.
Rev up to 2000 RPM. If the voltage is not HIGHER than it was before starting the bike, there's something wrong with the charging circuit.
If it IS charging, turn the bike off, and disconnect the battery overnight.
If the bike will not start the next day after reconnecting the battery, the battery needs to be replaced.

If the battery is NOT charging at 2000 RPM, the charging circuit is bad, and is likely what is draining the battery overnight.

My 2002 kawasaki ninja 250 is having trouble starting. (electric start) At first it was just giving me this clicking sound kinda like when your car wont turn over and start. So I replaced the battery for...


The oil light is on because the engine isn't running to build any oil pressure. Sounds like the new battery may need to be charged fully. After the battery is fully charged, and the 'clicking' noise is back (or not) check the battery connections for corrosion--especially at the positive terminal. If ok, you should get one solid click when trying to start. If ok, but still not starting, jump the two heavy terminals of the solenoid (click source) with a heavy wire which should bump the starter motor. If nothing, then the starter motor needs service--usually the brushes inside fail to make contact with the armature due to brush wear, or weak springs. Most dealers will likely only sell you a new starter--no internal parts. Hope this helps!

These bikes have a module that will not alow the starter to engage if the battery voltage is to low. You need to hook up a battery charger and ck the battery voltage. If battery voltage is below 12.oo vdc it may not start. Ck your voltage, ck your fuel, be sure you have fresh fuel before you start it or you will run down the battery again.

Shits fu@$ed


Have you checked the voltage on the battery? If it is lower than 10 volts it needs a recharge and it should go to 12 volts. It wouild be good to do a load test on the battery because even if it reads 12 volts, it may not have the proper current to start the bike. If the bike still just clicks, check all of your battery cable connections. If they are all good, the starter solonoid could be malfunctioning and the starter needs to be replaced. If you can start the bike, check your alternator voltage at the battery and it should be about 13.8-14.2 volts. Hope this helps.
