1000 Ss Starting Issue

Discussion in 'Supersport (1974-2007)' started by obelix, Jun 22, 2020.

  1. Hi guys, I am after some advice following a starting issue.

    I went out on Wednesday no problem at all, I wanted to go out this morning and it would not start.
    Key in, needles go through the sequence, I press start and all it happens are clicks.
    Battery is charged and 1 year old, checked all the fuses and switched the 2 relays by the battery....nothing.
    Then I took the fairing off to access the starter......got a wire from battery to the starter and it finally fired!!!!! and now it starts fine off the button.

    Is there an external relay/solenoid between the battery and the starter that could be at fault? or we are looking at the starter itself?

  2. hi the relay that can cause trouble should be found on the right of the bike just in front of the vertical cylinder the two pin connector can come loose and cause starting issues
    could be worth looking into upgrading the battery leads can aid starting really well
    also not unknown for starters to wear internally
    but would start with relay......
  3. Thanks Johnboy, I have located the relay/switch, I will give all the contacts a good clean before I start spending some money...:upyeah::upyeah::upyeah:
