Start by "Spraying some "Contact Cleaner" in you "Switch" on the handle bars!

Radio shack has it!

Thinking it's between the switch and the solenoid?:baffled:

Welcome to the forum, oldwinger. Does the starter relay (solenoid) "click"? When checking wiring, don't forget the negative (ground) connections.

Yes this sounds like a bad ground somewhere, or a corroded wire connector at some point.:)
