1200 Sportstart won't start, just clicks.

Bike sat in garage all winter and battery was dead. Charged it and it started for a couple days then nothing. Put a new battery in and still just clicks. What am I missing?

Thanks for any help.

Sounds like something is hanging or froze up or the starter/solenoid contacts need to be cleaned or the battery cable connections at the frame ground and starter are either loose or corroded and need to be cleaned or maybe a wiring harness plug has corroded over the winter and needs to be cleaned.

My vstar 100 has run great for me since I bought new in 2005. nThe first couple winters the bike sat for 2 months and the techs at the shop told me that the gas (Even though I had out stabilizer in it) was...


The trick is to get out there and fire it up every week and run it for several minutes. Short of doing that - turn the fuel off and run the carbs out of gas before storing. Drain the old fuel out in the spring and refill with fresh fuel. You can add some fuel system cleaner/drier to the fresh fuel. Personally - I simply run the bike every week and add some fuel drier - like STP fuel treatment during winter months. I have never been a fan of the fuel stabilizers - unless you are talking about a huge volume of fuel, like on a boat. Running the bike every week keeps the battery charged, too.

The bike sat for nine months I kept it in the garage and covered but when try starting nothing happens but oil light


Sounds like the battery may not be charged. Put a charger on the battery, bring to a full charge. Try starting. If it won't crank, locate a load tester and check the battery for weakness/dead cell. If the battery is not the problem, the starter/starter solenoid may have corroded/dirty contacts.

Recheck the battery conections, undoing them clean them and then replace them, it may be that when you put the battery on charge if you didnot remove it from the bike you may have blown the main fuse, this is not the fuse located in the fuse box, it is the fuse located at the starter solenoide, follow the poss red wire from the battery to the solenoide, here you will find where the wires attach to the solenoide, a fuse located under a plastic cover, supplys ignition power, i trust you have done a thorough test on the battery. ?

Put in new battery still no power. was riding and everything went dead. the bike is a 98 cbr 1100


Hi and welcome to the site,

Initially, have you checked the 30A main fuse? It would be inside the starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.

Good luck and thank you for asking.

Bike was sitting in garage. Dead battery. Charged it. Fuses good lights horn ect work. Nothing happens when I press start button. No click. Nadda. Ignition? starter? Or am I way off base? Thank you!


I would have the bbattery tested, bike batteries are prone to just going oopen and u have zero output, it is very unlikely anything else is wrong.

Mower sat over the winter. Turn key and nothing


Neither ... charge the battery first. New doesnt necessarily mean fully charged.

Charge it with a properly sized charger for 24 hours then check with a volt ohm meter.

Ducati 620s - Won't Start - Dead


The battery has died over the winter. Indicators staying on is a sure fire signal of low battery charge.

The battery may have enough amperage to get the headlight and the horn working, but the indicator relays take a bit more.

New battery I'm afraid.
