Question about Honda NT700V Deauville Motorcycles
3 things spring to mind
1, the starter can jam- this can be checked by taking jump leads and battery or a starter pack connect the neutral lead to the body of the starter and touch the live to the main terminal on the motor it should spin the engine over makesure you are not in gear
2, starter solanoid- again an easy check there are 2 large terminals on the top, bridgeing these with a heavy duty screwdriver ( it will spark when arked) will by pass the solaniod spinning the motor there is also an indipendant fuse on the side of it. If this works unplug the conector then you need to touch both of the expodes spades with a 12 volt supply this will involve useing two screwdriver blades ensure you get the terminals correct by checking the live terminal.
3, now is the difficult bit, if both of the first parts allow the motor to spin over it is a wiring fault the most likly fault is the starter button they can burn out unfortunatly if this is the case you will have to ether rebuild the switch involving making new brass contacts or replace the entire switch unit much easier but more expensive, again if the switch is ok you are now into checking plugs for damage and corrosion als check each cable for conductivity with a multimeter.
NB if the starter works on direct contact but not on the bridging of the solanoid chech the master earth and live terminals on the battery and the earth terminal to frame.
