I pulled the starter and tested like you explained. It spun just fine.

I'm going to scream.

There is nothing wrong with the starter. There's nothing wrong with the battery.

I jumped the terminals on the solenoid, still nothing.

Anymore suggestions?

If the battery is fine and the starter is fine then why the does it not turn the motors?

Go get another battery.....It looks like there is not enough amps to turn the motor.

I can't find any way to confirm how many cold cranking amps the battery should have. I know it had 250 when i got it tested yesterday.

just find someone with a good yzf battery and stick it in your bike and see if it works.

The battery is good.

I've either got a bad ground somewhere or a seized starter clutch.

The bike was running fine until about four months ago. That's when it started to go downhill. He said it acted like the battery was dying till one day it wouldnt start at all. He put a new battery in it and it didnt solve the problem.

Like I've said before, the battery and starter are both in perfect shape. I've tried several ways to bypass the solenoid and still failed. All the fuses are good, too. The engine will turn over when I push start the bike, but it will only sputter and die.

That's why I'm thinking its the starter clutch, now. Maybe the guy ran it low on oil and it seized up?

If anyone has anymore suggestions, I'm all ears. I don't have anymore cash to drop on getting it fixed right now, but I have all the time in the world to experiment.
