There is also a safety switch on the clutch lever that could give the same symptoms.
Another thing to check is the fuse block that has a starter relay built in (hidden) above the fuse compartment. My D5 has the same symptoms and this is the problem. If I keep the starter button depressed for some seconds the relay operates and bike starts.

There are two safety switches that you may need to test. 1) Neutral safety switch- this switch is what tells the bike that it's in neutral and allows the starter to engage. 2) Kickstand safety switch- this switch will not allow the bike to run in gear if the kickstand is down. My initial guess is the neutral safety switch. If the neutral safety switch is bad, then you will not be able to start the bike with the kickstand down because the bike thinks that it's in gear (even if in neutral). This also may explain why the initial intermitent problem of not starting when warm since the metal contacts will expand and possibly not make contact when warmed up. Are you trying to start the bike with the kickstand up or down? If it were the kickstand safety switch, the bike would probably start okay and then die when you put it in gear.

Bike wont start, turn the key n everything lights up as normal, press the start button n just nothing


It could be the link from the starter button to the ignition coil. If you can check this for a current it should give an indication of the problem.

My 125 jonway madness electric start wont start the bike at all, however all other electrics are fine. Please help


Is it trying to fire? Does it turn over on the button but fails to spark up or does pressing the button have no effect on the system? If nothing happening when you press the starter then it could be a few things. The button may be faulty, the starter relay may be faulty or the starter itself may be the problem. Make sure the fuses are all okay, all connections are secure and the battery is fully charged. Follow the positive, red cable from the battery and you should find the starter relay. With the ignition turned on, use a screwdriver and short across the 2 terminals on the relay. Do not touch the frame with the screwdriver and only try for a short time. Does the engine turn over or even start running? If it does I would suspect the relay or the starter button. If it doesn't then maybe the starter motor is at fault. This is not always the reason but in my experience it is the most common.

My 2011 Roadking will not start at times. You turn ignition on and hit the start button and nothing happens. Then you come back later and the bike starts with no problems. Ran code test no problems their....


Sounds like there is a bad or loose connection. Lots of things to consider like exposure to weather, moisture. I would start with the battery, check the condition and charge level, check connections, follow wires looking for damage, breaks. Check ignition switch connection, check handlebar switches and connections for corrosion, clean and lubricate Finally, it could be the starter, that can be pretty pricey so you may want to have the bike professionally diagnosed if you are still having problems, good luck

I have an07 street glide I need the wiring diagram for the starting switch system


Is the bike in gear with the jiffy stand down? Safety circuit will stop bike from starting. Also, is the run switch turned on (the one on the right hand handlebar switch)? Have you any error codes in the speedometer diagnostics? The start switch on the bars do fail so could be that. Listen for a click from the start relay under the side cover while pressing the start switch. No click could mean faulty start switch. If you here a click, then check for 12 volts at the small terminal on the starter solinoid. If missing, starter relay may be at fault. If present, the starter solinoid is faulty. Listen for the fuel pump running after turning on run switch. Pump should run for a few seconds and then stop. If pump not running, then run switch may be at fault.

Press starter button and nothing happens


How familiar are you with the Piaggio MP3 ?

For the electric starter to operate, not only does the ignition key have to be turned to the on position AND the ENGINE STOP SWITCH
4c5a26a4-8f3e-4f2a-92bc-1dd0107fdb36.jpg

be in the RUN position .....

BUT you must also APPLY REASONABLE PRESSURE to either of the BRAKE LEVERS.

On another note, the MP3 has an IMMOBILISER
There is a TRANSPONDER CHIP in the IGNITION KEY that is detected by the bike's "security system" and the CODE in it is read and compared to the one stored on-board.

I've never tried to start a MP3 with a key that has the wrong code or the transponder chip missing, BUT, if it is the same as my car (Ford Mondeo) the STARTER MOTOR DOES NOT TURN - NOT EVEN A CLICK

My husband will press on the start and nothing happens. It was just random but now nothing.


Maybe you ought to press the button. No seriously, if everything else on the bike is working correctly, you could have a bad starter relay. There may be more than two relays on the bike but one is a starter relay. When you press the start button, the relay should energize and send power to the starter solenoid. The relay is a cube about one inch in dimension. Usually located under the seat. You'd need a wiring diagram to test to see which wire power from the start button was coming from.

Usually most relays have a schematic drawn right on them. Look at the relay and find the "coil" connections. Using either a test light or a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) , test to see if you're getting power to the "coil" of the relay. Turn the ignition switch on, insert the probe of the test light or meter and press the start button. The test light should light up or the meter should indicate battery voltage at this connection. If so, replace the relay as either the coil is bad or the contacts for the starter circuit are bad. If not voltage, your start switch may be bad.

Good Luck

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.
