Starter not engaging...
I recently purchased a 2006 Vulcan 750 with 30k miles. As of right now, the motorcycle will not start and I can't figure out what's going on with it. I have put about 1600 miles on the motorcycle over the past few weeks, it was running great. It would sometimes be a bit finicky at start up, especially when hot... like after filling up at the gas station it would take a little longer to crank over.
But like I said, now it just wont crank over. The starter motor is spinning but not engaging. Sometimes I can get it to "engage" for a few seconds if I play with the starter button (different degrees of pressure), but it wont crank over. The AGM battery is just a few weeks old. I brought it into the auto parts store and they said that the battery is better than new. No blown fuses either. I did try a new starter relay (had an extra) and it would just make a clicking noise at the junction box so I put the old relay back in.
I have also noticed that if I pull the clutch lever in a little then the starter button doesn't work. It's only if I pull the lever in just a little bit. The starter button works if I pull the lever all the way in or leave it untouched.
I am going to try and make a youtube video. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
