Question about 2003 Ducati Monster 620 i.e.

1 Answer

When I go to start the bike, the motor does not turn over. There is only a click, click, click. The clicking comes from a part on the right side of the bike, just below the tank and frame. Could this be the starter?

It will be the starter solenoid making the click, they do this when there is not enough battery power to activated the solenoid completely.
You will need to charge the battery, or buy a new one.
The starter itself is at the front under the engine close to the oil filter

Wont start bike


sounds like the starter motor is overheating this can be the bushes are warn in the motor and when it cools down they are reconnecting, could also be the solenoid in the motor, this can act the same way, no click would think its more likely to be this.

Battery was replaced and started just fine, plus rode some short runs. sat for one week battery shows there is a charge and lights come on but no power to starter whats so ever. My question is, could the...


It may be neither. I've heard some stories on here that points to either a securtiy system or and ECM problem on bike made after 2000. You can test your relay and starter.

Look at the end of your starter from the right side of your bike. It has a five sided plate on the end of the solenoid. Just above this plate is a single wire connection. Unplug the connector and use a test light inserted into the wire end of the connector. Turn on the ignition switch and press the start button, the test light should light or a meter should show battery voltage. If it does, it's something to do with your starter.

If it doesn't, the problem could be your relay. You'll have to find the starter relay as I don't know exactly where it is. On the older Dynas, it was in the electrical box on the left side of the bike right behind the coil cover. Once you find it. put your finger on it and turn on the ignition switch and press the start button. Feel for it to click. If it clicks but you're not getting power to the starter solenoid, I'd replace the relay.

But still, that may not solve your problem. When you first turn on your bike, you'll hear a click. If you hear a second click, it's your ECM causing your problem. This is the stuff that I know nothing about on a Harley. I work only on the bikes made prior to 1999. I hope this helps anyway.

Good Luck

Speedometer cable heating up and melting the rubber covering


you may need to replace your starter.. sounds like a bad ground or something isnt grounded @ all. never jump a bike off a car runnin or not.. that will short out electrial systems on bike thus causin this problem...check with a volt meter the amps comin out the started and solenoids on both sides... the issues is right there you just have to figuar out whatside is pushing the less amp makin a strain on the opposite side

Clicking sound


Check the gear shift lever. If it moves in and out from the housing this may be your sound. I had this problem. To fix it remove the lever and install a rubber buffer, I made one from a piece of plastic hose of the right diameter. This will prevent the lever from moving in and out but not up and down.

Honda Deauville will not start.


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.

My bike wont start up, fuzes are good, oil good, new battery. Bike wont turn over to star.


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, determine if there is a clicking sound when the START button is pressed. The click is significant. If there is, this indicates that the starting relay is engaging but for some reason, the starter motor is not cranking. This could either indicate 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.
If there is no click, you may want to check the alarm/security/immobilizer if your bike is so equipped. others to check would be side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral light indicator.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Problem with ignition system honda cbr600f


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your description could be any of 2 possibilities:
  • starter relay/solenoid; and/or
  • starter motor.
To determine which, jump the 2 big terminals of the starter relay/solenoid when starting the bike; if the motor turns, the relay/solenoid is defective; if the starter motor does not turn, the starter motor is defective (most likely the carbon brushes).

Of course other possibilities still exist, such as:
  • loose, corroded battery terminals, relay, starter terminal/connectors;
  • weak battery.
  • open, corroded fuse/fuse terminals.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

Pls be informed that due to my current rank and rating, even a Helpful would be detrimental to my status. Should this solution not address your concern, it would be appreciated if you could just not rate this at all. Cheers.
