    2002 VFR800 Starting Problem. Engine will not crank.

    I have a 2002 VFR. Everything works up til the Starter. Not sure if the starter is the actually problem. But the engine will not crank. the starter relay just clicks away. I replaced the entire harness and subharness. and yet it leads me back to the starter relay clicking away. Fuses and every connection checked. Need help asap

    First test battery power and starter by using pliers to jump across the 2 large terminals on the relay.........with bike in neutral, please.

    If you hear clicking it means that the relay is getting power, but may have bad contacts internally, preventing power from getting to the starter.

    It's about 100 times more likely that the starter relay is defective than the starter itself.
