Bike wont start all of a sudden
 
So its been starting fine all summer ut today all of a sudden it won't start. I go to start as normal, but it is just making a ticking noise and will catch once and nothing. Then just more ticking and nothing else. I put my trickle charger on just to top up my battery. Any ideas?

Its either my battery or my starter I'm thinking...i hope its just my battery

Try crossing the solinoid.

I think we jump to the starter on these bikes to fast. I rebuilt mine and it seems to be a pretty robust piece of equipment that would take a long long time to fail.

Will it start hooked to a car battery (car off), or start if you roll-start it?

All fixed! I put a new battery in it and it starts better than ever! So time will now tell if this was a bad battery or a bad charging system. I've had the bike for 5 years and this is the first new battery I have put in slash changed on this bike. Thanks guys.

I hope you invested in an AGM battery....almost twice the cost, but lasts sooooooo much longer...higher CCAs too....helps up by you in colder weather....
