No crank thread
Iím restoring another year 2000 M1030B1 (USMC KLR650). Iím almost done but canít get the bike to crank. Nothing happens when I hit the start button. I was able to get it to crank by bridging the starter relay with pliers. I figured Iíd just swap some parts off a running KLR to make it easy. I donít have a multimeter with me since Iím working out of a storage locker but it looks like Iíll be getting one. Below is what Iíve swapped out from the running bike
Start switch / engine kill switch
Starter circuit relay
The bike will shift into gear and neutral (the neutral light comes on). Turning on the ignition does activate the headlight. I just installed the whole wiring harness so the next step is to double check for tight connections and clean them. Then I figure Iíll look into changing the ignition, CDI, and diodes. Prior to that Iíll clean the clutch safety / starter lock out switch. Iíve found that I tend to over think things so I assume Iím missing something obvious. Any ideas? Iíll update tomorrow when I get more time trouble shooting the bike.
