Question by Kelso M: Electric-start Yamaha dirt bike won’t start… help please.?
It’s a 230 cc, and the battery is new and charged. It was used a month ago, but the starter only clicks when I press the starter button. The fuses are all fine. The engine doesn’t even turn over. It just clicks once.
Tried to arc the solenoid terminals ( my dad did… he connected the two with a screw driver) and it sparked, but I don’t think he knew what he was doing. I don’t know if this is relevant.
Anyway, any suggestions?
The battery is charged, connections are good… I checked all this stuff. Does a dirtbike have brushes? Could they be going bad?

it sounds like the starter motor is no good or a bad conection at battery or starter
