I went to pick up my bike from storage, but only got a buzz from the starter relay on the right side of the bike behind the relay cover. I removed the battery and took it home and charged it. After installing the battery, the relay just buzzes loudly, but occasionally the starter will catch and turn the engine for a split second, then the relay just chatters again. I momentarily jumped the battery with the car battery to see if it was just not enough juice, but the relay acted the same. Occasionally the starter will start to turn, but the relay will just give up and chatter. Anyone else had this, and did replacing just the relay solve it, or is it a starter problem? Thanks.:confused:

Thankfully, I have not had this issue. But I thought I would share the first rule of mechanical daignosis... "Start with the cheapest part."

Just replaced the magnetic starter switch and the battery on my '06 vn900, and am now good to go!:)
