Re: dragstar 650 problem

So when you turn on the key and hit the starter is it turning over but not firing?

Or is it when the fuel pump primes and now it's continuously priming?

Does the bike start?
If not check, the kilswitch, sidestand switch, is it in gear, what voltage your battery is and have you petrol and spark?

If it is making the clicking when you push the starter button you need to charge the battery . It no longer has sufficient charge to turn the starter motor via the solenoid. The solenoid is trying to take power from the battery to turn the starter but is not getting enough to make it happen. Hence the continous clicking , as it attempts.

If , however ,it is making the clicking when you turn the key but without touching the starter button I suggest opening and cleaning the solenoid contacts - could be damp.

Good luck -

Re: dragstar 650 problem

Sounds like you forgot to turn the tank peacock from off to to tank or reserve or you ran out of fuel.

That noise that you hear is the fuel pump trying to push fuel to the carbs and not finding any...

Most likely!

Re: dragstar 650 problem

Check your oil in case the above is correct and the petrol has drained down into the engine.
