Hello,

When I try to start my bike, the engine doesn’t turn over and the starter doesn’t make any noise. This happens regardless of whether kickstand is up or down, in gear or not, or either combo of those. Lights come on as usual and it’s easy enough to bump start. This used to be an intermittent issue where it’d start right up for a few days then have a day where it wouldn’t. However, now 90% of the time it won’t start and I’m forced to bump start it. Any input is welcome. I assume it isn’t the kickstand switch as the engine won’t turn over in any condition.

Sounds like a failing battery. Lights can still work, but not enough juice to turn over engine. Get the battery load tested first. Any shop can do this , if you do not have a tester.

As long as Neutral light is ON, the kickstand & in-gear kill systems are not in play

Did the issue start after any recent Mod's, Maintenance, Repairs, or changes of any kind to the bike is the first thing to consider before doing normal troubleshooting from scratch procedures

Of course, Intermittent problems can only be found when its not starting and can only be traced down when its not starting

Must have's .... Do list in order is critical...

Kill switch @ off position
Initial Key on, Fuel pump should do its "FULL" cycle (not partial)
Test Battery for 12.2 volts minimum with "KEY ON"
Neutral light should be on
Check the starter relay first to find out if the problem is before or after the relay switch.
