  • Starter issue

    Has anyone experienced a starter only turning over 1/10 attempts? Solenoid fires every time but no further action. Was a cold morning.

    Starter was new back in 2011 and not used extensively since, battery new a couple of weeks back. When it does turn it turns over quickly and fires straight away. Feels like a switch somewhere...

    Sounds like solenoid not engaging.. take it off and clean things up to start with

      Are that battery terminals tight? I've had similar with a cracked terminal and not tightened before

        Had exactly the same with a bike recently, loose battery terminal.
