  • switch help

    Hi. I replaced the switch and still not starting. It will bump the starter if i hold the start button and turn on the key. I checked the two 30 amp fuses at the relay and in the fuse box. I get voltage going into and coming out of the start button. Any idea's would be appreciated. thanks

    Take starter off (2 bolts) and have a shop test it...

      As I stated before make sure the bike is in neutral ignition turned off unless you wanted to start. Use a jumper cable directly from the hot lead on the battery to the hot lead on the starter. You can also use a different battery but you we'll need to hook up the ground also. if you're not a neutral in the starter kicks in it'll be rollin down the street without you. Be careful. U you are bypassing all the electronics

        I can bump the engine by jumping the relay. Top two pins on the start relay connector have power when switch is on, Without a schematic i can only assume that they are just grounding that circuit to get the relay coil to pull in. But where I don't know. Suspect the main ignition relay. A wiring schematic sure would be handy. Tracing the wires is a pain.

          Thanks for the link just what i needed. Think I found the culprit. The fuel start relay the one that starts with 3EN. Not testing out the way the book said it should. Looks like it handles the safety switches and power to start relay.
          New ones are back ordered at factory so got a used one on ebay for 60 dollars. Should get me riding.

            Still no power to the starter. Does anyone know if you can hear or feel the decompression solenoid click when the switch is turned on. Also if it is bad will it stop the starter from working. I get 6 flashes on the dash light and think it is something to do with that solenoid maybe.

                I ordered a new decompression solenoid. Get six flashes on the check engine light. It looks beat and it does not move. I am replacing pretty much everything in that circuit. So Far a new key switch new start solenoid new start relay the 3en one and will put the new decompression solenoid.

                  I have had enough it's going behind the garage. Everything i try to order is back ordered for at least a month. Maybe mess with it later in the year or just unload it for what i got into it.

                    Maybe consider where you are trying to buy parts from, and a set of wires from Dave is 45 bucks. If you are only trying to order through your local shop, or the internet's chapest option, you can often strike the logistical roadblock of the Pacific Ocean. Corrosion in the primary wires will convert all your amperage to heat. If your starter does not immediately engage and turn when you hit the button, holding the button in until it does so is bucking for an electrical fire somewhere IMO.


                    Wherever you go in life, ride there if at all possible.

                      HERE IS A TRICK:
                      WHEN USING and searching EBAY , CLICK REFINE, for refining search, click the check box"NORTH AMERICA ONLY". this will get rid of the overseas sellers etc. i just dont deal with that BS.

                        Tried in vain to find a used or new one. So will wait on the backorder for a month or so. They are pricey 329.00 dollars at the dealer. Took the old one out to bench test and it is shot. No continuity through the coil. Thermal resistor tested ok, not that it matters at this point. Thanks for the Ebay tip will remember that for next time. Enjoy!

                          Well not as bummed out any more. My part came in 3 weeks early so put it in and got a new NAPA gas mat battery and it fired up and I took my first ride. Love it. Comfy and plenty of power for a old one. Thanks for all the help. I am going riding.
