Default Where do I start-----Starter problems

I have an 06 Venture. Got on the bike yesterday and get 1 click at the starter. I charged the battery and still the same 1 click. Took the battery in and it checks out as good and fully charged. Checked battery connections and still only one click at the starter. Everything else works,lights are bright and etc. I am not sure where to look for the problem. Any advise is appreciated.

The "click" is usually the solenoid.

Do all the panel lights dim when it clicks? That would suggest that the starter is trying to turn and drawing full (or more) power.

Connections are the main cause .... battery to solenoid, solenoid to starter, engine ground to battery.

Check and clean.

If that doesn't fix it then your starter motor has an issue. It may be "stalled".

Rock the bike (ignition off) in gear until the engine turns a bit ... Try again with the starter.

If that fails to fix it, the starter needs to come off for repair.

I am back at it this morning. It sounds like the click I am hearing is coming from under the battery. Like maybe a relay or something. Lights are not dimming when starter button is pressed. I am now thinking maybe a relay or loose connection to or from relay.
Thanks for your reply.

The other plug-ins if your on the left side of the bike look in there and you will see a black panel box to the left with plugs as well two bolts holding that on as well.

Did you check the solenoid? If you can get to the 2 connections jump them together with an old screw driver with the ignition key in the run position. If the bike starts I would get a new solenoid. Good luck with with the hunt for a cure.

Take apart all connections, clean them and put them back togather.

First thanks for all the ideas. What I found is that the click is from the starter relay. I pulled the relay off the bike and checked this and ran a test according to my Clymer manual and found there is no continunity across the posts. I think this means the relay is bad.

There will be no continuity normally, and continuity when you apply 12V to the low side.

If it clicks, and when "clicked" there is no continuity, then it is bad.

That is the conclusion that I came to . I have ordered a new relay

Thanks everyone for your help.
