2013 Honda click 125i staring problems ... sometimes...

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a used 2013 Honda click .. runs ok only thing is the starter barely starts.... brand new battery installed yesterday 

 

when I try to start the bike the starter barely turns and is really quiet.... It feels like it’s struggling to start ... once it starts everything is all good for the most part

 

any ideas what could be the problem? 
Every other bike I owned in the past the starter is loud enough to hear and you can actually feel it trying to start

 

is the starter old and just need replacing? If so about what price am I looking at? 
 

as always thanks in advance

No starter in the 125i, it's an integrated flywheel/starter/alternator.

No gear to engage/disengage so no sound.

All very hi-tech.

As said the scoot starting is an integrated system and just for starters excuse the pun.

1. Picked up from where.?

2. How does it act went kick starting it. ?

3. Has the oil level been checked. ?

4. You stated "sometimes" !! When it starts first time on the starter switch, how does it act the same starting it again after a run.?

5. I assume the new battery as you say new has been checked.?

6. Electrical contacts and connections have been checked & cleaned up at battery terminals.

Thanks for the reply’s to answer the the questions 

1. got the bike from a friend that left thailand (next to nothing so I can’t complain and the bike is honestly in pretty good condition)

2. Never kick started it ... I turn the key on and off and hold the start button and struggle to turn on. but will try tomorrow.

3. Just changed engine oil and final drive oil when I put the new battery in the other day

4. Starting the first time of the day is weakest... after driving around and everything all warmed up starts alittle easier

5. Battery is brand new out the box I haven’t checked the voltage yet 

6. battery terminals are very clean and connected well ... I just rechecked today

 

i drove another click same year today and when I started that bike the starter felt stronger... and that bike started right away

 

my start button feed alittle worn ... could that possibly be the problem?

 

thanks again everyone

Yeah I think that might be the problem yesterday I push and hold the starter button and it turns on .... sometimes got to push and hold 2-3 times and it starts up ... I’ll try to open it up today or tomorrow.... thanks again for the tip

At the same time I cleaned the starter button I also cleaned all connections on the starter relay,since I done these two things mine starts up first push.

When you cleaned everything how did you do it? Unplug everything and go crazy with some brake clean?

Or just buy a new one, around 150bht, and just push in.

I’ll give it a sanding and lucky me I picked up a can of wd40 just the other day haha

 

if that doesn’t work then it’s a new switch
