  • Won’t start

    Hi all,
    Any input would be appreciated, if posted wrong place please let me know.
    2000 Roadstar, (European version) started having difficulties “churning” the starter last year (last season) it hesitated when attempting to start, bought a new batteri (yuasa)
    it still hesitated but started none the less. This season despite having “pulse” charger on over the winter, it will not go all the way, it tries to churn but fails.
    just makes the initial frist turn, and then sounds like it cannot turn it further. When jumping it from my car it still struggles the first initial turn, but then seems to get enough energy to churn and starts “normal” changed the battery (again) bought a new starter relay, OEM, Got burned earlier with cheap replica. Checked grounding, seems ok.
    decompression solenoid seems to be working ok. Out of ideas?

    Starter need a rebuild maybe?

      Pull the starter and have a look-see at the brushes and all that’s attached.

        Starter check-up it is. Just find it strange that it starts easily if jumped by car.
        Will check with meter tomorrow and see if I can get it off (been stuck there for 21 years)

        Thanks

          Could be time for a set of battery cables. I make and sell an updated larger gauge cable for these bikes. If the old cables have high resistance due to corrosion under the sheathing that is exactly what will happen.PM me if interested in buying a set. They are $50 plus what ever shipping is to you if not in the U.S.

            With all that churning there's probably too much butter in the fuel system!

                Took the starter off, was completely trashed, I am amazed it could even turn.
                new one ordered, a repair kit is impossible to get in DK.
                hopefully it will “churn” once installed
