Is my starter solenoid dying?

Battery is juiced up, starter motor works fine.

But when I push the button, the solenoid does not make one click but about 10 per second, uninterrupted, until I stop pushing the button.

Is the solenoid dying? Or is there some kind of a drain somewhere?

If yes, can I replace it with an array of other solenoid?

Thanks!

Make sure your battery cables are tight,if so try another battery.If you can start the bike with another good battery yours is toast,if you can start the bike by shorting the starter solenoid,get a new solenoid.A jap one should fit fine.

I'd Check The Energizer Wires. The 400's Came Loose And Would Just Stop Every Now And Then. Just Tightend The Nuts Up

Yes, when I short the solenoid, the starter whirrs. New solenoid, then...

Does anybody know with what I can cross-spec?

Just take your old on to your local bike shop.There are lots of aftermarket ones available for the ATV world.Seems
to me you will do well with a Yamaha part # 4kd-81940...

Thanks. Actually so much can be found on eBay once you know what bike it fits.

Why pay $150 for a starter motor when you can get one for $15 (shipping included) on eBay?

OK, eBay may not be the cheapest.

Does this remind you of something?

I think it's either the battery or something else, now.

Battery fully juiced on the Optimate III. I push the button, one click, whirr. Like this several times, until I get the crazy click-a-click-a-click from the solenoid, then nothing, and the Optimate switches to desulfate for 2 minutes, then charge.

I don't think the solenoid is toast, now.

What do the experts think?
