Smile Starter Relay Question.

My bike just suddenly didn't want to start right up on this 90+ degree day. Seems like the relay just wants to click and once in a while let her try to start. Any info on this would be great and also is there a prefered replacement for this part as there is with many discussed on here.

Thank you.

Kristoco.

Garage
can you bypass the relay by putting a screw driver between the posts and make the bike start?

I did cross them for a second and it tried to turn over. What's that mean?

I got one on Amazon pretty cheap. I think it was around $12, but I could be wrong. I got one for the ATV around the same time and I can't remember what either cost.
