Won't crank. Hi, I have Kawasaki Ninja 250r 2009. Battery is good. It won't crank. It makes clicking sound from a part right next to battery terminal. Please help. Thanks in advance.
I ran across the same issue with the varnish when repairs the newer three phase motors used in electric airplane motors. About a 16th inch of each wire can be scraped with a razor blade small exacto blade, being careful to scrape all the way around the coper wire. You will easily see the luster of the cooper brighten up when correct. Now the solder will easily adhere to the remaining cooper lead wires which must be done the same way and insulate the soldered spot with spray on rubber. You are up and running with 70 still in pocket. Help me here please ? 2013 overheat razor required the fan breaker replacement. During that removal and replacement it requires the breaker to be pressed down into the short 8 inch portion of the wiring harness. The end of that part of wiring harness, that the fan breaker broke came loose, only leaving part of the metal ring that held the three wires together. I can not for the life of me see where it broke loose from ? Where in that area near the started relaysolenoid did the wire connect ????? Blind, only got half of GED and very old.
An exemplary tutorial Thanks mate
theoverengineer great explanation and detail really appreciate it. quick question sr. my solenoid, battery and cables on a motorcycle got wet from a freeway crash in the rain, replaced battery, checked wires , and all fuses are good even the solenoid. but the buzzing continues to happen and no start please what do you suggest I try next before going to far. i thinking - + wires? can they be damaged by the water ?
can't you sand the varnish in order to weld the tips together in order to make the solenoid be able to work?
how much does it cost only the solenoid
The starter on my skidoo keeps jumping and even when it's on you can still hear clicking. Even when the skidoo and key is turned off it still starts up. I had to take the fuse out so it stays turned off. I'm wondering if I need to replace the solenoid? Or what else it can be.
Great explanation. Very thorough and simple to understand without any waffle. Nice job
Very good. Thanks very much. I enjoyed watching.
if the 2 small wires are broke would u still hear the plunger jumping?
TO repair it you have to get some poisonous compound used for removing varnish on wire Strip X or equiv. THen you can solder to the wires again. I was just hoping to find a video that reminds me what R and S are. I forgot which wire was used. lol... I'll find it somewhere
same as car solenoid
awesome explanation thanks. maybe a hammer won't repair it. lol just kidding.
Excellent Explanation. Same principle for a doorbell.
As you seem to acknowledge in the comments, you CAN repair the coil by removing the insulation layer, joining the leads, then reinsulating. If the leads are too short, unwinding on turn will not affect operation, and will give you more than enough length to reconnect the leads.
coated.. so it must be sandable?
Thanx for the great info
While I am sorry for your 70 loss... THANK YOU VERY MUCH for the thorough explanation of the starter solenoid
Does it matter which way the current flows across a solenoid? I am installing one in an outboard motor and not sure which cables should hook up to which bolts I know the small wires go on the small and big on big
