Is it possible, or have you ever seen a solenoid stick (not work) only occasionally?
I've got a very random non start issue with my bike, doesn't matter hot or cold, day or night, rain or shine. The start button either works fine, or not at all.
New battery, new(er) start button. Replaced the whole control assembly complete with it's wire harness.
The bike won't stay "not started" so I'm having alot of trouble finding the fault. (can't carry all my tools around waiting for it to happen next)
I can't find a loose wire, so I'm down to thinking it's either a dirty/corroded connection and/or ground.
Or, the solenoid is taking it's time crapping out.
Because it's so random, I won't even know if I fix it until it doesn't happen anymore.
When it doesn't start, all the lights work and stuff like they're supposed to, the only thing that doesn't work is the starter by pushing the button. And like I said, random. I can go days without any problem, then it'll act up for a couple days in a row.
Today is a good day for my bike, as it's working fine so far, so I don't even know what to troubleshoot right now, since it all works.
Gotta be a faulting solenoid, or a connection right?
