Hi guys, thought i'd give the forum a bash as I'm a new Thundercat owner.

I have a technical question I was hoping someone might be able to help me with. When I turn the key to the 'on' position and then switch the kill switch to 'on', my bike starts clicking away, click click click. Quite fast, then stops. Wondering if was anything major?

Appreciate the help.

Battery is low.

If you can get it charged up it should start, has it been sat for a while? Have you left the ignition on for some time?

Hopefully that should be all, and after a bit of a ride it should have some charge back in it.

Do you have a multimeter? If this happens on a regular basis it would be useful checking how much charge is being put back in to the battery with the bike running.

+1 for the battery

It might be as simple as a bad contact on the terminals, so make sure they're tight. Smile

Sounds like the fuel pump if it only makes the noise for a few seconds. Fuel in the carbs has evaporated. If that the case just wait for it to stop and then start the bike. I have it happen on mine from time to time and I don't worry about it.

If the clicking is when you press the starter then battery as mentioned.

Mine has done that from day one......I'm fairly sure it is the fuel pump and perfectly normal.

If the battery is very low the clicks are very slow.

Hope this helps

It's normal. It's just the fuel pump priming the engine ready for start-up. Very Happy

Please see the above posts for the correct answer, I completley didn't read your post properly and thought you got the noise when you were trying to start the bike, i.e. pressing the starter button, not the big red engine kill switch.

Sorry for any confusion

Mine does that clicking too.

Incidentally I never use the kill switch, only the ignition. Once flicked it to off when washing the bike and then went into a flap later when it wouldn't start!
