Hi, Bbenwin before testing any electrical component in the Starter 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. Depending on battery voltage starter relays and starter solenoids can make the same noise when you hit the starter button. You can easily determine which one is at fault by two simple tests:
STARTER RELAY- place your thumb and index finger on the starter relay and press the starter button, if you feel the click then the relay is faulty and needs to be replaced.
STARTER SOLENOID- bridge the positive and negative poles of the solenoid with a small screwdriver if you get a loud clunk then the solenoid needs to be rebuilt or replaced as necessary. If the engine turns over then replace the starter relay.
A motorcycle starter relay is an electronic mechanical switch that has a small coil winding around a piece of metal that requires low amperage and thin wires to be activated. When you turn on your ignition switch power 12 volts is sent to the relay coil which in turn becomes a magnetic contact point that pulls a spring-loaded contact point to itself completing an electrical circuit that allows more amperage necessary to be accessed by the starter solenoid which in turn acts in the same way as the relay but on a larger scale with its stronger heavier contacts making available the necessary amperage to turn the starter motor. If your battery has low voltage it, in turn, makes the magnetic contact point weak in trying to pull its counterpart to make a connection. These relays are usually encased in a plastic housing that is sealed depending on the quality of the product. When activated they will produce a small amount of heat to their metal components which in turn can create the perfect environment for condensation to form depending on weather conditions and how careless you may be with a water hose or sprayer while washing your bike. After a period of time, several months to several years depending on the circumstances this condensation is the starter button for electrolysis and the slow build-up of corrosion which ends by preventing the magnetic contacts in making a solid connection and alerts you to this situation with the customary greeting "CLICK or BUZZ" if you get a single loud "CLUNK" then the starter solenoid is at fault and needs to be rebuilt or replaced as necessary. The relay is inexpensive and needs to be replaced however in a pinch they can be forcibly opened cleaned and resealed with silicone. In a nutshell, motorcycle starter relays take in low amperage and send out higher amperage when activated and for curious minds, the voltage remains constant at whatever your battery reads at the time.

Hi, Shawncolbyis before diagnosing any brake light issue always check the bulb and fuse first for integrity a brake light staying on is usually caused by the front brake light switch, which is mechanical, not disengaging. On early models moving the throttle control housing closer to the front brake master cylinder is the main fix. On late models, the switch gets tweaked and needs to be realigned. A brake light that does not come on when the brake lever is applied can be caused by a faulty switch or no continuity in the wiring at the switch. The rear brake light switch is hydraulic and it is extremely rare to malfunction in a closed circuit condition causing the brake light to stay on. Usually, rear brake light switch issues are caused by no brake pedal free play or a sticky rear master cylinder piston. A brake light that does not come on when the rear brake pedal is depressed can be caused by a faulty switch, air contamination in the brake line, or no continuity in the wiring at the switch.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch controls improperly adjusted.
2. Insufficient clutch spring tension.
3. Friction discs or steel discs are worn or warped past specs.
4. New wet clutch not pre-soaked for 24 hours.

You have a bent shift fork.

You will need an impact driver, flywheel puller, case splitter and torque wrench plus the normal screwdriver, pliers, etc.. Alternate to the special tools is taking it to the dealer and say "Fix it". I often tell people to take it to the shop just so they don't get into such an involved project.


The motor comes out of the bike then turned upside down for removal of the bottom case. The clutch, shift shaft, flywheel, electrics, gears and gear shafts gotta come out so you can get to the bad fork. There's much more but the idea is that you are better off having the shop do the repair unless you have experience, are extremely mechanically inclined, and have the tools. The bad news is that a shop is going to charge around $1200 for the repair. Some shop mechanics also repair bikes at home. If you find one, you can save $200 to $400 or so. I include a diagram to give you an idea of how the shift drum moves the forks left and right to change gears. Please rate my answer.

ok if ur bike was running before replace the plugs and warm it up to a hot temp and then try removing the plug adding lots of WD40 use a proper spark plug socket that connects to a extension bar and onto a socket ratchet ( not from the standard tool kit that comes with the bike) keep the set up nice and straight over the plug and turn it anti clock wise .... when you need to start using lots of pressure do this by one hand on the extension bar and the other on the ratchet . if this fails you will need to get some metal pipe to slip over the ratchet handle to increase the leverage ( maybe a 12 inch pipe) the plug will come out if not give someone else a go at it that is more handy than you are. why this has happened is because who ever installed the plug over tightened it . the recommended way is ...................... to add very small amount of engine oil to plug threads, using only the plug socket and extension bar by hand thread the plug back into the motor until it stops , then add the ratchet onto the extension bar and tighten until you feel it start to tighten up then you can nip it a quarter turn and thats it .... done .... There is a copper washer on the bottom of the plug that squashes together and helps seal the plug and causing that to be completely flattened from over tightening will cause it to seize and jam your plug, if not it has been cross threaded and removing the plug will damage the thread in the motor ! but you have no choice ..only to remove it . ( the thread then can be repaired ) you will know this by the striped aluminium all around the plug thread when you remove it .To avoid this happening is why you start to replace your plug by hand before using the ratchet .

Start with your fuel relay assembly , short relay red wire to black and blue wire . Then see if it starts .

1999 kawasaki... | Answered on Jul 20, 2014


Check the spark on all cylinders with a spark tester to see if all have spark. If good spark on all do a compression test to see if there is a problem with one of the cylinders, i.e. burned/bent valves, hole in piston.

This would mean that your battery is dead and needs to be charged! hope this helps!
