These are known for starter problems... The clicking you hear is the relay but the bendix is locked up put it in about 3rd gear and rock it hard forward and back. Bendix may release. Make sure battery is good. As I said before these bike are well known for their starter problem and even after having it fixed by a dealer problem seems to show back up after a very short time. Good Luck!

SOURCE: My bike won't start

Either, your terminals are dirty, your battery has died or your starter motor has died. Having a manual would help, just Google it and hunt around, you should be able to find a freebie. But you need to get it started and to an auto-electrician, he will diagnose your problem in seconds, and generally it is a freebie.

The oil light is on because the engine isn't running to build any oil pressure. Sounds like the new battery may need to be charged fully. After the battery is fully charged, and the 'clicking' noise is back (or not) check the battery connections for corrosion--especially at the positive terminal. If ok, you should get one solid click when trying to start. If ok, but still not starting, jump the two heavy terminals of the solenoid (click source) with a heavy wire which should bump the starter motor. If nothing, then the starter motor needs service--usually the brushes inside fail to make contact with the armature due to brush wear, or weak springs. Most dealers will likely only sell you a new starter--no internal parts. Hope this helps!

sounds like your battery is dead. You may have enough volts to turn on lights, but not enough amps to turn the starter motor. put a volt meter on the battery and see how far the volts drop when you try to start. my guess is too low. Replace the battery, or have it tested; it probably wont take a charge.

SOURCE: bike wont start. Solenoid clicks when electric

When I had my VL 125 i got this problem after a very cold winter, I jumped the bike and ended up splitting the second ignition coil which fed back into and blew the DCI unit, wasn't cheap to have repaired but cheaper than new.
Firstly upgrade your plugs to iridium ones, they never let me down.
Secondly trickle charge your battery for 24-48 hours
Thirdly if still the same try bump starting bike with a good run up in 2nd gear as it may be a stuck starter motor.
The starter motors on these are known for their issues and again ain't cheap for new but if you know a good engineer, there are some ways of modding other starter motors to use as a replacement.

Light/Horn is on but can't electric start(with flickering sounds when start button pressed) the bike


By "flicking" sounds, do you mean a series of rapid "clicks"?

Usually a series of rapid clicks when trying to start is an indication of low battery voltage, or a bad electrical connection, usually a ground.

Get an automotive jumper cable (use only ONE of the leads, let's say the BLACK one), hook one end to the battery NEGATIVE terminal, and the other end to a bolt head that mounts the starter motor to the engine case, and see if that helps.

If so, it is a ground issue.

An old time Harley trick is to attach a SECOND ground cable to the battery negative terminal, and the other end, remove one starter mounting bolt, slip the bolt through the cable "eye", and reinstall the bolt.

The problem in this case is that most bike engines are made out of aluminum.

While aluminum WILL conduct electrical current, it's NOT the best conductor in the world.
This is why copper jumper cables are much better than aluminum ones, and why they found out (the hard way) that aluminum wiring in a house is no good!

NOW, if when you try to start and you get a SINGLE click, this usually means either a bad starter relay, or bad starter solenoid.

Hey Randy,
Sounds like the battery needs to be replaced. Take the battery to O'Reilly, Autozone, Advance Auto and have the CCA, (Cold Cranking Amps) checked..(load test).. this will tell you whether the battery is good or not. When you get a new battery.. make sure the connections are clean and tight..put a little heavy grease on the connections to prevent corrosion. This should fix your problem.

Bike starts and runs fine but after a 20 min run and i go to put the bike into neutral the green light does not come on but bike still runs.then when u turn the bike off and back on again the green light...


There is an electrical switch that senses when the transmission is in neutral. The switch may be defective causing this problem. Check the electrical connections to this switch. If they seem to be secure, replacement of the switch may be warranted.

the starter solinoid is not working if it has an electric start, try kick starting it, if it won't start check the points or the ingiter coil.

Bike wont start


What is it doing exactly, any clicking, buzzing, any noise at all, or nothing, no sounds at all? Especially in the starter area.
