640 Electric Start Not Working
« on: November 18, 2016, 10:31:38 am »
My 2003 640 Adventure suddenly doesn't want to start. Rode it all day and then the evening the electric start simply does nothing. All electrics works, fuses are fine and I can kick start the bike.

When I push the electric starter nothing happens whatsoever.

Help please?

It can be that the bushes are worn. you can buy them from honda for a few hundred Rand. there are reports on the forum. i nave done this on my 640

Found the problem, some wires came loose close to the starter relay. Saw it purely by luck after staring at the bike in desperation for 2 days.
