Question about 1998 Honda Deauville NTV 650

Open Question

My y reg deauville will not start. i havent started it since december. The battery is on trickle charge for most of the time. The starter motor turns over quite well but there doesn't seem to be any attempt of the engine to catch. i couldn't smell fuel after the attempt to start the machine and have checked thefuel to the pump, thats ok, but there isn't any from the outp during the starting cycle. I've connected the pump to the battery and it runs. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

doulbe check the grounds, & you might need to add and extra ground wire to the bike, closer to the starter. This should help. There is a valve that release the compression when you kick it off.You might see if you can pull this release the compression valve while pushing the start button????

SOURCE: Hard to Start Bike

need to start w/ a tune -up and diagnostic to start eliminating potential causes. 1st take off tank, & remove plugs and do compression test. should have 149-206 psi in each cylinder, have throttle wide open as you crank motor for test.next take valve cover off and check valve tappet clearance,intakes .003"-.005",exhausts.006-.008,adjust as needed by reshimming to specs.reinstall valve cover w/ new gasket.replace spark plugs w/ new ngk dpr9ea-9 plugs w/ gap set at .031"-.035" next check air cleaner & box clean or replace as necessary. make sure fuel is fresh and that you have fuel to all carbs by opening fuel drain screw at bottom of bowls to check for fuel in bowls.make sure all spark plugs are firing also by connecting to cap & cranking motor as you hold plug to ground on motor or frame, one at atime, to avoid potentially harming cdi box always have plug grounded to bike when cranking motor. if all this checks out ok or is brought back to specs.,and still running bad or wont start, carb. set should be taken off & inspected,cleaned,repaired as needed, reinstalled on bike, and synchronized w/ vacuum guage set.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The click is significant. It indicates that the starting relay is engaging but for some reason, the starter motor is not cranking. This could either be a faulty starter relay (particularly the contacts) or a faulty starter motor (specifically, the carbon brushes). To determine which:

  • with the side covers off, expose the starter relay particularly the 2 large terminals;
  • have somebody start the bike normally using the key and button start switch;
  • determine if indeed the clicking is coming from the starter relay;
  • while the start button is still pressed, jump the 2 big terminals;
  • if the engine cranks, then the internal contacts of the starter relay are corroded or burned;
  • if the engine will not crank, then the starter motor is faulty or it can not turn the engine..
A few additional ideas:
  • externally charge the battery;
  • drain the tank and carbs of stale fuel;
  • refill with fresh fuel;
  • remove the plugs, center stand the bike, engage 1st gear, rotate rear wheel to exercise engine.
  • Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Hi !
First check if the current is coming from ignition coil....
If YES ... then the spark plug is burnt(shorted) Get new plugs.
If NO... then there could be a problem with the ignition coil itself Or the coil in the dynamo is burnt.... Regards

The relay buzzing could be a couple of things.If you have a battery charger trickle charge the battery overnight and then try it.Check the battery terminals for a weak or loose connection.If the battery is fine then the starter relay may need replacing.Tap it a few times they can get stuck.If no joy try a new starter relay. good luck

have a load test done on the battery but at 4 tears old I'll bet it is the battery that has failed. Most batteries last about 3 years at the most before they decay internally.

My x reg honda 650 deauville wouldnt start the other night at about 2100 hours. I knows it been freezing and its been out in the cold but i had no problems starting that morning even when covered in ice....


The possibilities are many in a cold start problem such as you have listed. First the battery even though it appears to be working my be low in actual cranking power. If the battery is five years old or older this is a great possibility. What happens id the battery turns the starter with every once of power it has but leaves no power to operate the electronic ignition. If the battery is newer then another possibility is a dirty starter motor drawing more power then "normal" there for depriving the ignition. Also don't forget that the starter, engine oil and state of battery charge are all affected by the cold, just turning the engine over with the starter can kill a motorcycle battery is a few crank. Motorcycles are heavily warm weather bias so, it wasn't designed or built to run cold. The engine oil you run in summer months is a higher viscosity then what should be used in colder weather. My Honda Magna 750 at +8c can be just ignorant to start and also needs a long warm up time before pulling away. So my "Rule of Thumb" now is when the temperature reaches +10c I park the motorcycle.

My 2001 vulcan 1500 will not start. the indicator lights work but when i try to start it all lights go out for a second then come back on again. battery shows fully charged on trickle charger.


Measure the voltage on the starter side of the solenoid with the kill switch ON and the key ON and the starter switch PRESSED - trans in N. IF it is not 12 volts, it may be faulty.

My deauville doesnt start even after a 2 mile run


It's one of these things: The battery. Especially if you're still using the original one, which is now almost 10 years old. The charging system. Or the starter relay.
Even if your battery isn't 10 years old, if it has sat for more than a month or so without being charged, then it is toast. A fully charged 12 volt battery should show about 13.5 volts on a volt meter.
If the battery is good, then you will need to find out if the charging system is working. To do this, you will need an ampere meter capable of reading up to 10 amps. Start the engine and THEN hook the amp meter in series between the battery (either side) and the cable going to the battery. With the engine revved up to around 4,000 RPM, the charging system should be putting out at least 5~6 amps.
If it isn't the charging system or the battery, check for a bad starter relay (the thing that makes that buzzing sound when you hit the starter button). Perform this test by bridging across the two large cable connections on the top of the relay with a large screwdriver. If the starter spins when you do this, then you've got a faulty starter relay. If the starter doesn't spin, then you've got a bad starter motor or a bad electrical connection going to it.

Starter on 1200 L 2006 whirs but does not engage engine to start


Have the battery LOAD tested, a lot of times a battery will show good with no load on it but it can actualy be bad when tested under load. Also make sure your grounds are good clean and tight. Loose grounds is a very common problem with the 1200 sportsters.
