went to start bike last week and battery seemed dead. put a trickle charge on it and it started right up that night. rode about 50 miles the next day and it did the same thing again. we push started it and it started right up and ran fine the rest of the day and started fine the rest of the day. went to start it up sunday and same thing. the battery shows 11.75 volts so its good. connection to starter relay is good and the ground going to the starter is good. when i turn the key on the lights flicker and when you hit the start button, the relay just clicks really fast. i dont really understand this if the battery shows nearly 12 volts. i tried to jump across the contacts on the solenoid but nothing. is there something im missing?

Get your battery tested... Doesn't sound like it's holding a charge. You should have 12+volts when it's not on.

These 4500k ddm hid headlights (wow can do a number on your battery with having them turn on while the bike isn't running.

I put on the timer relay so my lights dont turn for 10 seconds after my bike starts. and again it may be the battery, I guess I need to put some jumper cables on it and see

Still sounds like the battery or the rectifier isn't charging the battery while your riding.. T

thanks T, and sometimes my lights come on as soon as I turn the key on for some reason. I used the timer relay becayuse my riding buddy had an extra, I think I'm going to buy one from Tripage so it will work better

I was having this same issue. Check your fuses under the seat make sure none are blown. If they are then that means you have a short somewhere. Depending on which ones are blown that shows which lines have a short. My bike would not turn back on then when I charged the battery it would turn on and then not turn back on once turned back off. Then the Gauge cluster lights went out. I checked the fuses and they were blown. Found the short repaired, charged battery and bike was good to go. Ended up replacing the battery anyways. Good luck.
