Randy, after you check all fuses/relays and check all the wires and connections for pinched/damage and corrosion, kick stand safety switch if it has one, etc., if still getting the same click, it is time to remove starter, have it tested or just replaced.

SOURCE: Hyosung GV 650 wont start. Battery is fully charged and starter don't even click when trying to start?

Hi,
This will be either the starter solenoid is faulty or the starter motor needs replacing.Have the solenoid checked before removing the starter motor.

Sometimes after trying to start a bike with a weak battery the starter solenoid gets damaged,or loose connections develop on the solenoid due to heat.It should be next to the battery.

Hi
The clicking noise you hear is the starter solenoid that switches power to the starter motor. The fact it is clicking indicates that everything up to the solenoid is working. A few things to check

  1. be sure that all connections to the battery and earth to the chassis are secure and free from corrosion
  2. check the terminations at the solenoid and starter motor to be sure that that they are ok. 
  3. If you can meter 12 volts getting to the starter, would point to the starter failing. May need the brushes replaced. 
To help you troubleshoot the problem, here is a Service Manual for the bike you can download for free. Just enter the 3 letters as requested at the top of the screen.  Happy to talk to you more about the problem. Thanks for using FixYa. Hope you get is sorted out.
regards robotek

sounds like the starter solonoid is not working properly if the batt cable got hot enough to smoke that says the batt, is ok and it is ok to jump with car, the solonoid is making the clicking noise and a real hot batt sometimes will make it work, the repair is simple and cheap if you are talented just get a solonoid repair kit three screws 5 min, and you are RIDEING.

2002 Kawasaki ZZR 1200 no electrical power


Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. Faulty ignition relay.
14. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
15. Check for engine trouble codes.

I have a 2004 Kawasaki Ninja EX 500 that won't start. I made sure that the battery is fully charged, and turned it over and nothing happened. When I jumped the starter solenoid because someone I know had...


Sounds like a bad starter without knowing what sounds it made when you turned it over etc. if it did absolutely nothing when you tried to start it but started when jumped via solenoid it’s either wiring between the button and starter or wiring between the solenoid and starter itself

Bike wont start just a clicking


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, charge and load test the battery.

Offhand with a fully charged battery, jump the 2 big terminals of the starter relay. If the starter motor spins, then faulty starter relay.

Good luck and thank you for asking Fixya.

Mistake #1, never try to jump start a motor bike, you may have blown the on board PC unit, best bet is to take it to good Kawka mechanic and let them fix it, bikes these days are fairly complicated..

Jus bought a 91 ninja 600 and wont send any power to the starter


Lets start with the basics...
1. be sure your battery is in good shape and fully charged ( at least 12.6 volts)
2. starting procedure- ignition key to 'on', tranny in nuetral, right hand kill switch to 'run', pull clutch in fully and hit starter button.
3. does it do anything? clicks?... If you get nothing then the problem is likely in the clutch switch, kill switch, or the starter button. You will need a wiring diagram and volt meter to trace down where the power is lost. If you are getting 12 volts to the starter but its not engaging then you can suspect the starter/ solonoid.

PS... My clutch switch has been going bad for a few years now ( Im too lazy to replace such a trivial thing as a safety switch ;). Sometimes I need to hold the start button and work the clutch till the starter engages.

sounds like you have got dead cells in your battery , they wont hold a charge , the loud click was probably the cells in the battery arking and killing the cells off ,id fit a new battery and all should be well.

Bike wont turn over


Use the voltmeter to check the battery while you are trying to start the bike. If it drops below 10v the battery is bad. If it stays at 12v or more look for a loose cable or poor ground.
