Customer Question

Hi, so I have a Honda not a Kawasaki (sorry lol) but I think my question related across the board.
So when I push the start button on my 98' VFR it "clicks" then turns over and starts. Some times though it just clicks then I hit start and it clicks again, sometimes it takes 4 or 5 times then it starts. I out a new battery in and it's still doing it.
Is this possibly the starter motor going bad?

This is very common when the starter solenoid is going out. It's a cheap part and easy to replace, just follow the large battery cable on the starter or battery and you'll find it.
