Kawasaki 650 brute force won't start

Starter turns but motor won'crank over. I've taken the starter out and tested it on the bench, it is working fine. I have also cleaned all the connections on the battery and the starter.

Sounds like to me that your motor is locked up, take the CVT cover off and see if you can turn the primary clutch with your hands. If your not able to turn the primary clutch, then the motor is locked up. Good Luck.

Just replaced starter motor. Flywheel has all its teeth and so did the old starter motor. Fuses look good. The starter is rotating but the engine will not turn over and start. whirring noise.

check that the pinion of the starter is engaging the flywheel teeth
check that the over run clutch of the pinion is engaging and not over running when it is supposed to lock up to turn the flywheel

Why won't it start?

Check the starter to see if it is engaging the flywheel. There may be a flat spot on the flywheel so the starter cannot mesh with the teeth on the flywheel.

How do I determine the problem when the starter won't turn over until I pull the rope, then it start AOK until the next time???

Automobile starter repair shops have a test set-up and can test any starter with it. If the solenoid is bad, they can tell you. The most common fault is a clicking sound when not starting, but that isn't the only fault. A common fault is a loose ground wire or short, but since your starts with a pull, then that appears unlikely in your case or it wouldn't start at all. Good luck.

When you turn the ignition and it clicks but will not turn over and the lights still work what could it be

low battery, battery cables not making secure connection, battery terminals oxidized or needing cleaning/brushing .... failed starter .... tap the starter with a wrench, it can revive it :)

Have a 2007 Kawasaki 650i with 100 hrs on it. Starter acts up periodically. Just the cellinoid cliks. Has new battery, checked the cellinoid and it is closing. Checked voltage to starter and it is proper...

When you say you checked the starter, did you check it under load? A "bad" starter " often will turn when it's out of the vehicle and hooked up to a battery. That doesn't always mean it's good. When you take a starter to Auto Zone or Advance they check it under a dummy load to simulate the load the starter is under when it turns an engine. So if you checked the starter under load, then it is OK. If you didn't , take it Auto Zone or Advance and they'll check it for you.

2000 Kawasaki ZX-6R Ninja will not turn over

Hi, Mike before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
5. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
6. FOB battery low or dead.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Faulty starter button.
9. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
10. Security alarm needs a reset.
11. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
12. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
13. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
14. Faulty ignition relay.
15. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
16. Check for engine trouble codes.
