The starter wont kick over bike engine

Electric starter------- it seems when i try to start my bike, the starter just spin's and the engine doesn't crank and I just changed the starter. i checked the battery, it was low on water I filled it up- put a battery charger on it for a day. it cranked over but it was weak. I took an hour drive came back home, turned the bike off and tried to start it again. It started doing the same thing. i have a tender charger on it now

Kawasaki starter not engaging


Hi, Ricky the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

Hi Rod, sounds like your starter drive is going south. I'm sorry you can't find the first and very best tool your Road King ever needed, but don't despair for a mere $6.50 you can download another one at the website below:

Starter works but gears seem to free spin, wont crank engine


sounds like the sprag clutch has failed. If you can see the large gear that sits behind the rotor and its turning but the rotor isnt turning the sprag clutch has failed. Very costly. usualy you would have a missed start eg not engaging every now and then before this fails all together.

I have a ktm 640lc4 (2002) it has a leaver in front of the clutch leaver. what is this for?


Is it a kick start or does it have a kick starter in addition to the electric start? If so then it is a decompression lever which you pull in when you are trying to start the bike by kick start. Hold in the lever and try the kickstart vs not holding the lever. You'll feel a huge difference.

Fault with electric start on my Suzuki GSF 250 Bandit


Check that the clutch is in, kick stand up, and neutral light ablaze. Then try your start button. When you had it running and hit the button, the starter engaged at a slower speed then the bike engine was turning, which led to the stall. The stall means your starter works. If the starter works when the engine is running then it is wiring. Check your kick stand wiring along with the clutch wires which plug in on the handlle bar or where the clutch cable enters the engine.
