Normally the bike starts right up but every once in a while, when I turn on the key, the gauges come alive, headlight comes on and fuel pump spins up but when I pull in the clutch and push the starter button, the headlight dims but nothing else happens.

I have checked all the normal things -- clutch switch, kickstand switch and starter switch and they all seem to be functioning normally. I have had this to the shop more than once but of course it never shows up there.

To date, I have replaced the battery and tip over switch but those haven't cured the problem. Anyone got any other ideas?

same thing for me except i get a click noise when hitting the start button any one know what is wrong with my bike?
