Electronic Starter Relay Diagnostics
My quest for knowledge continues along with the adventure of determining why my bike won't crank.
Does anyone know how to go about running a diagnostic test on an electronic starter relay?
Up to this point I've accessed the starter relay, carefully removed the blue plastic housing cover, inspected the circuit board for signs of shorts, burning, overheating........ etc. I then reinstalled the relay without its cover. Afterwards I manually depressed the solenoid and the starter turned over, of course the bike won't fire up because the fuel tank has been removed. The starter relay does not respond to the starter button on the handle bar, but I know that several interlocks exist - kick stand, reverse micro-switches, etc. Up to this point I believe all the interlocks are working properly as they tested out o.k. to the best of my ability.
I guess the basic question is, is there any way to test the electronic starter relay's performance, or should I just assume the circuit board on the relay is faulty and replace it at what price, I have no idea $$$.
