YEP! Ed\īs right.. check ALL connections.. Solinoid terminals,Take the starter button right off the bars.(2-3 screws underneath)blow out the copper contacts in there.. maybe spay some contact cleaner..LOL I know my horn botton cuts out all the time if I don\īt use it for a while. ;D if it don\īt turn over.. solinoid\īs toast. get a buddy to hold the starter button on and place a screwdriver on the BIG terminals on the solinoid will make it crank if the starter\īs ok..if no turning..starter may be gone.. OR the main fuse on the battery. Also check the juice from your battery. If it\īs too low/old, it\īll just make a funky/buzzy noise. Boost it off a charger or another bike battery. NO car battery!! I\īve seen wire harnesses light up from that. NOT cool.. (:o LOL Good luck man!!
