Question about Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have a 2004 Raptor 660r. Battery is fully charged, new starter and starter relay. It tries to crank but drags really bad. It's like something is keeping it from spinning freely. Then the positive and negative cables get crazy hot, smoking etc... I checked valve gaps, and pulled crank cover and everything looks fine. I'm freaking stumped and frustrated. HELP PLEASE. Thanks in advance

Can you check battery voltage while pressing start button? Make sure it stays over 10 volts while trying to crank. Starters draw a lot of amps and that is why cables getting hot. Also make sure all connections clean.

SOURCE: car drags when trying to start. had battery

Clean positive cable! But take off neg. first to avoid arching. Put positive back on first then reconnect negative. Use a amp. draw meter to see if starter draw is not too high. You may need a new starter.

check your battery make sure it is able to take a charge. ,if the amps are good check your connection, from altenantor to battery. check voltage drops, battery drains. Your problem most likley seems to be
your battery. Your starter might also be draining your battery. You ll find the problem keep looking.

Check all the fuses and fusible links,the links are most likely on the starter.

may be flooded. hold down gas pedal all the way and crank the engine, after a short time the engine will start to splutter and sound like it will fire. ease the gas pedal off slowly, while cranking, enough to get the engine started it may take a couple of goes. it may blow grey smoke when you get it going this will be raw fuel. holding the gas pedal down all the way, the engine will go into CLEAR FLOOD MODE and the injectors will not deliver any more fuel, until you ease off the pedal. check for dribbling injectors and the shop.

SOURCE: 2005 dodge caravan won't start

The indicator lights and the neutral safety switch are the same sensor, if one does not work the niether will the other.The mode switch in the transmission needs to be checked and the easiest way to do this is with a scan tool.Seems so simple, i cant imagine why the dealer would not have looked at this.I dont understand why they would install a new computer for a no start condition.

The most common cause of a non-starting car is the battery. It is either weak, (low voltage) dead, (zero voltage) or has bad connections. (corroded or loose) I will assume you have a fully charged battery with good connections. (both to battery and starter relay)
If you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the starter relay and apply +12v from the battery to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. (not to be confused with your key switch). If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken. Picture of starter switch prong on the relay is pictured. NOTE: sparks are to be expected, so don't be too scared. Pictured is a starter relay that is seperate of the starter, on models with starter and relay mounted together, its very similar.

Is your new battery fully charged? Maybe you need to go slow with a step-by-step process.

2005 Cadillac CTS tried to crank my car all it will do is one click i took the battery to go get tested and it was 12.3 amps they said it tested fine. So i put the battery back in and same issue 1 click i...


12.3 amps is a bad battery , 500 amps is good, but you meant volts
sure. (by the way sir your battery is discharged, gets forgot?)

12.3 volts rested is a discharged,state ambient temp and can tell by how much using SOC tables.
try jumper cables, try a fully charged battery, 12.6v is fully charged at room temp, rested. barrow a charged battery for friends car.

State of charge.. at room temp.12.3 is 50% charged,
the shops dont tell you that, just GOOD battery, bad,
its your job to charge, it
then when cars starts, the alternator takes over, 100%

the reason you are not going good ,is because no voltmeter in hand. For SURE.
guessing dont work here, only tests and measurements.

1; can you try turning the cars crankshaft by hand.?
siezed, bingo
2: can you hot wire the soleniod small pin to the outside big pin
like here,
http://www.fixkick.com/nocrank.html#test1
if the battery is weak, this test is useless. on all cars.
if it works then the key line is dead
if not the battery ,or cables or starter is bad.
there are 3 parts to a starter,
i repeat, the battery (charged) the cables and the starter.
engine turns by hand. yes.
those are all facts.
another tack.
voltmeter across battery lugs.
crank 0v bad battery or shorted or siezed motor.
12v, starter dead open circuit.
10v typical with fast cranking.
you can see this in 2 dimensions. here.
time is the horizontal axis.

It won't start: new battery, have lights, it just clicks when you turn the ignition switch


you mean it wont crank, it must crank to start.
1: bad starter system
2: weak battery even a new battery can be weak.
if you dont charge it first.
or if it starts ok then wont later, that means cars charge system failure.

can you jump start engine? with jumper cables.
that be a big clue there, proving starter works but battery was weak.
if the battery is fully charged.
you can hot wire the starter solenoid, (tiny terminal)
if car cranks now, the key start wire is failing.
A/T or M/T tranny? both use different path here....??????

if you cant hot wire it, then that means the stater is bad
the cables bad or the battery is not really connected.
or possible the engine is seized, can you hand turn over the engine at the front crank bolt (CW , facing rear, in neutral)
if not motor is seized.
some times even the starter and rig gear can be seized.
the starter can be bench tested. too.

How can you tell if your starter is goin bad


A bad starter will kill a battery real quick. If you can find a DC amp-meter compare it to factory specs, or similar car starters. A bad starter will make a grinding noise, or give false tries where the starter spins free without engaging the motor. Of course, a bad starter will not spin at all, just make sure the relay is working.

I have a 2004 sportster roadster when i hook the battery up the turn signals flash like four times then all it will do is just make the starter relay click and its a brand new battery ,starter;and relay


Hi A82ellis, when you are trying to diagnois anything in the starter circuit you must start with a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or better and will pass a load test of 9 volts or better while cranking the engine over and the cable connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at both ends. If you suspect a faulty starter relay just swap it with your horn, brake, or system/fuel pump relay, if the bike starts with no problems replace the bad relay.
