first off..if it will start if you push start it..it's not your coil..c.d.i, stator..you can rule those out...your problem lies in either the starter..or your starter relay, you can test this < make sure your battery is fully charged >..take an old screw driver..and find the starter relay...should be near or not far from the battery...jump across the terminals..if the bike cranks..then it's the relay...if it doesn't..then it's your starter...you can also take some jumper cables..hook them up to the battery < or a good battery..like your car or what not >..put the hot lead on the starter terminal..touch the neg lead to anywhere on the bike for a good ground..if the starter cranks the engine..then your starter is good..and the problem is your relay for sure..most times it's always the starter relay that goes out, check all of this like i mentioned..oh..you also could had a bad connection in the starter button switch..but..save this check for last..no sinse in taking the switch apart unless the other things check out ok first !. good luck !honda 450 trx-wont start,can only push start. is it faulty coil,stator,cdi or switch? how do i test these components? help please!
kickstart rules!!!!!!! Lolall good tips. Deff. Cut the systems in half. Make sure ur starter cranks. Bye jumping as said ^. If it deos check ur relay. And make sure u have a good battery....... I love my kick start.. Less wires and weight!!!!
Good luck we are waiting to hear ur outcome...
My guess would be a bad stator. I've seen them do that before, but usually when they warm up, they will start with the starter. Will yours start with the starter after you push it off and start it and warm it up?
if the bike will start when you push start it..then it sounds like the starter isn't either turning the motor over fast enough..or its not turning it over period..even though you hear the starter cranking...does not mean it's turning the motor over..check to make sure your starter transfer gears aren't striped out..and if they aren't..then that tells me your one way flywheel bearing is bad...you will need to take the starter transfer cover off..take one of the small starter transfer gears off..and try to turn the gear that is closest to the flywheel..it should turn freely one way..but lock up when you try to turn it the other way..if it doesn't lock up..this means your flywheel bearing < this is known as a sprag bearing > is bad...the starter will crank over..but it wont transfer the cranking to the flywheel...to turn the motor over...if you can push start the bike..then everything is working like it should..your problem lies with the flyweel bearing....i can almost bet on it .
