Can't get bike started, need help!!!

I have a '06 Yamaha FZ6, new battery and starter relay solenoid... When I press the start button, It doesn't do anything... When I wiggle the wirings coming out from the right handle switch - I hear a click noise from the tail (probably a relay) but can't figure out what the problem is?

Someone please help, I just got this bike and I haven't even had the chance to ride it yet :(

I know it may sound dumb, but did you check to see if you flipped your kill switch on/off?


Did you check your fuses? Do the brake lights, turn signals, and headlight power on?

Do you hear the fuel pump power on?

Sorry, forgot to mention... All electrical components work fine - I can hear the fuel pump.

The kill switch is off, kick stand is up... But nothing - not even a crank

Unfortunately, I don't have a volt meter to check the signals...

"The kill switch is off"
If that's so then that is your problem.

I meant to say the kill switch isn't engaged to when it will kill the motor... I know how to operate a motorcycle - this is not my first bike!

Are you sure the battery has ample charge? I know it sounds simple, but this happened to me last week. Battery was just weak. Take a screwdriver and jump across the contacts on the starter relay/solenoid. It should turn over if the battery is healthy.

As Ulric tried to say, take apart your control box where the starter button is located and clean the contacts. It's only 2 screws holding it together at most. Might have to move the brake handle out of the way if that.

Is the bike in neutral? Clutch switch? Kickstand switch?

Jump your solenoid and see if it cranks. If not your starter is locked up. If it starts, check your clutch switch. Jump those wires together then hit start button. If still nothing it's either your ignition switch or right hear switch

As stated it sounds like clutch switch or you have a wiring issue . But without seeing it and using a meter it's not easy to pinpoint. Just throwing ideas at ya.

Seems I knew someone a couple of years ago with same issue on same bike. No clue on if they fixed it.

You wrote:

Something is not right if wiggiling the wires has an effect
I would look at this closer and clean all electrical connections.
