Won't start,but will jump start

I can jump start it but when i go to start it there is a clicking under the front seat.I took the front seat off and it is coming from a square box.It maybe is a relay. I checked all fuses and they are good. I am out of ideas

Battery is probably dead. Charge it.

Everyone should charge their batteries every few months regardless if it cranks fine or not. It keeps the battery conditioned and it will last longer.

Stop using the kill switch. I never use mine. You're just doing twice the work and wearing out the kill switch. You have to turn the key off anyway so just leave it in gear, put the kickstand down (bike shuts off), and then pull the key out. No need to use the kill switch. Eventually it's going to go completely out.

I ordered this yacht battery and all those problems went away. http://motorcyclebatteriesusa.com/ba...sp?battery=233

Also, a battery tender jr helps a lot.

Theres a chance it can be the starter relay but If the clicking keeps going , Its the starter thats fried and its sending the power back to the relay "clicking noise". If the motor is not turning over , doesnt Make any noise, but u hear the clicking...Its the Starter Or Relay switch. I'll put my money on the starter. I took mine out and its completely fried..ill take some pics tomorrow.

Unless you know of some magical way that jumping the bike is bypassing the starter relay, it's his battery.

+1 Running more power through a relay doesn't make it work if it is truly fried.

+1 on the battery being dead,

That is how I failed the riders test when I went to take it last year, killed the bike to hear what the instructor was saying, and was unable to restart within 1 minute = auto failure. that sucked because I had to wait another week before I could test again, then had 2 weeks of rainy weather, so I actually had to wait 3 weeks.

the emergency stop switch is for just that , emergencies . the side stand switch is for keeping you from driving off with the sidestand down , just that . the KEY SWITCH is how you turn on/off the bike . period .

Whatever dude. They're all switches and they all do the same thing. Don't you have any rooms in your house with a light switch at each entrance/exit? Do you go back and turn off the same switch you turned on even if you're going out the other door?

Actually, they are different.
The switch that kills the battery is the only full-proof one.

yeah, do you not use your turn signals because you may wear out the switch in ten years? or your brights?

yes the kill switch is the only FOOL proof way of cutting off all power.

My point is the kill switch is known for going bad and causing problems. Not often but it does happen. Unless you have pit crew that jumps out with a rear stand everytime you park the bike you have to use the kickstand anyway. By using the kickstand to turn the bike off, you keep the bike in gear and verify the side-stand is functioning each time. Side-stands have been known to cause problems also so it's a good idea to keep an eye on it.
