clicking noise while trying to start 250EX

When I try to start my 250ex the engine turns over a couple of times and then I get a clicking noise from a little round thing located right behind the battery (and it's connected to the battery by cables too). When the clicking starts, the engine is not turning over. What's that little round thing called? And will simply replacing it solve my starting problem?

Re: clicking noise while trying to start 250EX

The round thing would be your starter solenoid. The reason it clicks is that the battery is down. Try charging the battery. But, it is possible that it is shot. From my experience, the average life of an ATV/motorcycle battery is about two years, though I have seen them go bad after only a couple of months. Charge the battery on a trickle charger, that is, 1 amp or less, overnight. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
