Customer Question
My bike is just...

My bike is just making a clicking sound when I try AMD start it I just put a new battery in it and had it recharged today and it won't start just making that same clicking noise I have a 2000 Suzuki intruder 1500 idk what's wrong with it

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

Its been going on for 2 months usually I just charge the battery and it will fire up but now won't do anything by click

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '00 Suzuki?

Intruder vl 1500

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I just charged the battery and put it back in
