The solenoid is easy to replace. The one-way clutch is underneath the generator cover on the right side of the motor. Take off the right engine cover, be careful the stator is inside it. To get to the one-way clutch you will need to pull the flywheel you may need and air wrench and a flywheel puller specific to your bike. The one way clutch is bolted to the back side of the flywheel. The clutch locks in one direction to a large sprocket. When you replace the clutch you will also have to replace the sprocket. The clutch runs up against a smooth round surface on the gear, If the smooth surface becomes chattered the one-way clutch will not grab it and turn over the motor.You will need a right cover gasket , a puller, a one way clutch, and the large starter gear that plugs into the one-way clutch.

1997 Suzuki Intruder VS800...starts, runs, stalls

Hi, Anonymous the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.

Headlight switch turns my Bronco off?!

Sounds like a weak connection somewhere close to the battery.
The alternator should be able to keep up with the extra electrical load not to mention the storage capacity of the battery. So if the headlights are killing power to the key switch, something is weak between the battery and the key.
Could be a corroded cable, connection at the solenoid, or in the fuse box.

I have a 2007 yamaha v star, i started it the other day just fine but when i put it in gear it died out. now it will not start, it will turn over but the neutral light will not turn on when the kick stand...

look under the kickstand an see if your switch is disconected there may be a broken spring that is not letting the switch move to the on posistion the only other thing that i can thank of off hand is that your kill switch may be bad but im leaning toward the kick stand switch can you put it in netural and the bike roll freely if you can then its the switch if the switch isnt depressed then the bike wont start hope that helps.

Key cylinder replacement on 1995 F 150

To replace that you turn the key to the run position and remove the trim panel around the column than you will see a small hole in the steering column housing right under the key and than you put a small pick in the hole and push the pin in and pull the assembly out. This is one of the easiest things there is to do, first disconnect the battery ground cable, next, all you have to do is turn the iginition to the run posistion, check the next steps:

Remove the steering column shroud and lower the steering column.
Disconnect the switch wiring at the multiple plug.
Remove the two nuts that retain the switch to the steering column.
Lift the switch vertically upward to disengage the actuator rod from the switch and remove the switch.
When installing the ignition switch, both the locking mechanism at the top of the column and the switch itself must be in the LOCK position for correct adjustment. To hold the mechanical parts of the column in the LOCK position, move the shift lever into PARK (with automatic transmissions) or REVERSE (with manual transmissions), turn the key to the LOCK position, and remove the key. New replacement switches, when received, are already pinned in the LOCK position by a metal shipping pin inserted in a locking hole on the side of the switch.
Engage the actuator rod in the switch.
Position the switch on the column and install the retaining nuts, but do not tighten them.
Move the switch up and down along the column to locate the mid-position of rod lash, and then tighten the retaining nuts.
Remove the locking pin, connect the battery cable, and check for proper start in PARK or NEUTRAL.-Also check to make certain that the start circuit cannot be actuated in the DRIVE and REVERSE position.
Raise the steering column into position at instrument panel. Install steering column shroud.

Its pissible that you need to program the keys to work with the "PATS" security system, go to the following to this section link: fordf150/howto/patskey.

If you only have two keys for your truck, you can just add the new ignition cylinder keys as "spare" keys.

Hope this helps.

I personally would buy the Repair Manual. I am a Harley Mechanic and always use the Repair Manual. By using the Manual you will never have to ask any more questions unless really serious. The Repair Manual is a Mechanics best friend.

No spark

Start with a new spark plug. Check the side stand kill switch. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. If broken or out of adjustment, it would kill the spark. Check for a broken wire at the side stand switch and coupler. Try moving the kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it. Check the fuses. How good is the battery? Try a jump start from your car battery. Is the handlebar kill switch on?

Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. Check the wiring harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center casing. If still no spark, get CDI system and coils checked at the dealers shop.

Honda Shadow 600 c won't start in gear after battery change

The kickstand switch is either bad or bent out of position. See if you can activate the switch manually. Does the bike run now? If so, the switch is bent out of position. If it still won't run, jumper the wires together until you can replace the switch.

Bike shut off on the freeway and wont start again.

Got gas? Got water in the gas? Drain the carbs and fuel line.

Check for spark. If no spark then check again with a new plug.
Is the kill switch on? Does the side stand have a kill switch? Is it working properly? Tip-over kill switch on your bike? Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter.
Are all wires clean and with a solid connections? Check the loom. Any abraded wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center casing. With a little luck this will get you back on the road.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!
