Welcome. Thank you for choosing Just Answer.did you perform any maintenance or add any accessories before this started?tell me everything you can since the starter worked fine and now.Steve
Starter was not working, at all, before this. Now, just won't keep turning the motor nor fire up. No new added accessories. Added all new fluids, crank, tranny, & primary. Checked fuses, spark plugs, etc. Bike was serviced just 3000 miles ago.
make the following battery voltage measurements:Key OFF?Key ON?while cranking starter?let me know what you find.Steve
I do not have a volt meter.
your starter used to work. they all work off the showroom floor. something has changed to cause you starting difficulty. since you stated nothing was done to the engine, I must assume it is stock. in that case, the only possible causes of starter problems like you describe is a bad starter, bad battery or bad battery cables.
