Not enough info. What does "the starter motor turns when i push the starter but the engine doesn't 'take'" mean?
Does it mean the starter turns the engine, but the engine DOESN'T START?
Or does it mean the starter turns, but the engine DOESN'T TURN?
If the engine is turning , but not starting, test the battery voltage and check the battery connections.
If the voltage is good, a quick test would be to jump the KLR battery to a car/truck battery. If that makes it start , it is time to load test the battery.
