I have a 1999 Honda TRX400EX. When I try to start all I get is a clicking sound coming from the starter relay/solenoid. There is 12.65V coming to the the positive side of the relay, when I crank i am getting 12.65V on the Neg side, but no voltage at the starter. When touching the positive and negative post on the relay nothing happens. Trying to get conformation the relay/solenoid is bad? Are there other checks I should be doing?

There is a big price difference for the Relay, from $10 to $85. Is there any value in the higher dollar relay?

chances are, the starter is bad. if when crossing the starter solenoid does nothing ?, then the starter is bad.

So why when I disconnect the wire going to the starter and check the voltage there is no voltage measured at the wire end? Is it that the starter completes the circuit and voltage is then applied?
