My 2014 has a little starting issue I’d like some help with. Maybe 3 out of 10 presses on the starter button results in a click followed by either a delay until the starter kicks in or, a click and then nothing. When it only clicks if I let off the button and then repress it it starts right up. The starter when engaged does not lag or give any indication it is in any way weak. I’m guessing it’s the switch or, the relay/ solenoid but I’d like to hear what you guys think before I try to address it.

Thanks in advance

You will find every post I start with, check your engine and frame grounds, also your battery connections. This is like the 4th this month, so some trouble shooting tips, when nothing , while holding the button in , pull in the clutch. If nothing, NP. Next have a close look at you main 30 amp fuse and start solenoid, chances are very good that start solenoid has bad contacts, generally one post will be discolored.

Thanks, I’ll replace the solenoid and see where that gets me. The similar post sounds like he had the same issue.

After reading the post you referred to it was clear to me that issue was the relay. I ordered the one you recommended from dB and after 175 miles today and multiple shut downs and start up I didn’t have a single occurrence of the issue.

Thanks a ton,
KC
