Some of those bikes had a bunch of safety switches(read relays) that would go out for no other reason.than to make you really pissed off before you grabbed a hand full of throttle.

The ultimate solution for me and my Yamaha V was to wire the start button to the last relay. Going round the kickstand switch, the brake switch, the clutch switch and the neutral switch. Once the kickstand hits the back of your ankle or the bike jumps with the starter -- you just learned to be a better operator.

First to test the starter; open the handles of a plyers and arc across the big terminals on the starter solenoid. Be in neutral with key off !!!!!!! If starter runs- we are off to the safety switch solution.

So- Hook up a trouble light to your ground on the battery. Get a jumper from the hot side of the starter solenoid. and start going down the row of your safety solenoids. using the light on the output and the hot to activate it. Don't forget- they ground thu their sensor. So- you are testing the solenoid and it's switch(read sensor)- To activate -operate what ever safety devise it is protecting you from. Some where in there will be a dead or open solenoid.

Hit the start button and nothing happens 2008 750 brute force


Check your starter solenoid. You can trace it by following the power wire from the battery to the small solenoid block that contains a 30 amp fuse. You can bridge the posts on the solenoid by using needle nose pliers or whatever else you may have. If it starts up or you hear the starter run, you have a bad starter solenoid.

2011 street glide push starter button nothing happens


Do you hear a click?
Battery charged?

If the battery is charged, and you hear no click when you hit the button, start at the switch itself and check it and the wiring from it.

2006 rt 1200 wont start new battery neutral and first gear dont show on dash


The fact that the neutral light does not show up on the dash may indicate that the gear position indicator is not calibrated correctly. Does the bike start with the clutch pulled in?

The battery is brand new and when hook it up and turn the key the neutral light and the hot light come on but when I hit the start button it clicks and doesn't click anymore. Not even turning over. Th


Remove battery terminals and clean both posts and terminals
with sandpaper until you see shiny metal. The black coating is lead sulphate which has a high resistance to current flow both into and out of the battery. Charge the battery as not all batteries are charged sufficiently when new to do the job. Also not all new batteries are good batteries as they suffer manufacturing faults which allow them to discharge internally. some batteries are sold without the acid so check that is not the case.. Check all terminal connections including any earth wires.

My computer says it is charging but as soon as i hit the power button it stops charging and does nothing even happens


Have you tried running the computer with just the AC plugged in and not with the battery? If not try that. It could be the battery is going out. I had a similar issue once. If that doesn't work it might be the power supply / powercord or it could be the motherboard.

Rectifier Problem?? When the bike is very hot and I make a quick stop for gas, when I hit the starter button to start it up, it sounds momentarily like it's going to start then it feels as if the battery...


If the battery is charged, its charged..... redpoint5 is right, check the battery when hot... If the battery was not charging i would then look into the charging system, rectifier, etc.... Is it an air cooled engine? Sometimes engines can get a little warped when hot... My grandfather had Corvair vans as taxis that somehow always got overheated, after that they would never start hot. So, he had to leave them running all day.... If your battery is OK you may want to have a look at your starter.... Or, bypass the selenoid with a jumper cable and see if the starter kicks over fine when jumped directly...... That would indicate a bad or worn selenoid.
