Folks,



I'm new to the wing but have already got an issue. I've searched the forums with no luck.



Based on what I've determined, the starter is good, the battery is good, the solenoid which is mounted right next to the battery is clicking loudly and is sending voltage to what seems to be an additionalsolenoid which is mounted to the right lower frame rail area and has a blue and red connector boots. The power seems to be stopping here.



IF I jump this second soleniod and then push the starter buttob all is well.



Does this second solenoid fail often, could it be something else causing this solenoid to not energize?



Why are there two solenoids?



I'm still waiting on my maintenance manual. It seems I need to replace this lower solenoid but what is it called? Part number? how do I order it by name or part number etc.



Thanks in advance to all.

Chris

blue and red connector boots suggests reverse solenoid

Nope, reverse is down, actually have not used it since I bought the bike.

Based on the electrical diagrams, starter relay "B" and what you're calling the reverse solenoid are one in the same.

According to the data, when you press the start button, solenoid A, which is the one at the battery, sends power to solenoid B, which sends power to the starter.

So, based on that I need Starter Relay B.

Or, could it be that the reverse handle has a microswitch that has gone bad?

Turns out it was actually the reverse switch. The connection was extremely loose causing the on and off no start.

All fixed

Yeah!:goofygrin::banana:
