My Motorcycle wont turn on????Please Help.....
« on: August 07, 2015, 10:15:57 AM »
Hello y'all I have a 1982 Honda Ascot FT500 that I am currently working on it. I bought it for 140 dollars and i wanted to fix it I put new battery, oil, sparkplug, filters etc but it wont start. I put a new starter solenoid thinking it was broken or something like that but it wont crank it make a clicking noise and turn on the lights but it wont start the only way i can start the bike its by putting a screwdriver into the starter solenoid and putting direct electricity through it and it will start i dont know what to do Please someone help me fix my baby............. Thanks in advance.

Sounds like someone was cranking the piss out of it .... I'd get a book and pull the starting system apart .. gears and all and check clearances and check all the wiring to the system for shorts etc.
