Buzzing Noise

Hi all need some advice.


Went to start the scooter this morning and there was a strange buzzing noise and the starter wouldn't turn. This happened 4 times and then started. I went for some fuel and It started up straight away first time.

Any ideas what this could be? 

Loose connection? Faulty Starter? It's still under warenty and will get the dealer to look at it when it goes for a service this week. But any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

ash

Some more info

what bike / age / mileage / 2-stroke or 4-stroke / any patterns (cold / hot / wet).

If its under warranty, let your dealer worry about it.

Buzzing

6 months old. 1200 miles. 4 stroke only seems to do it when it's cold. Me thinks it could be a dodgy starter motor connection

Yep

Your starter relay is on the way out, they start buzzing a bit then just burn out.

Tempremental

Just started her up 5 mins ago and she went straight off the button. Leads me to think it may just be a loose/dirty connection somewhere along the relay?


Anyone agree?

Check battery terminals first

that they are clean and tight, and battery fully charged.

Then follow through like you say checking relay & starter motor conns.

Cheap jobs first.

Sometimes

a failing battery will get a similar result to that.

Faulty

It turns out that the starter is faulty and I am now waiting for a replacement under warranty it does still start but is just temperamental, sometimes it goes off the button, sometimes it buzzes, some times the starter just spins but doesn't engage.
