Re: Need help! Starter solenoid is stuck on 2000 K1200LT....Any suggestions?
There is no solenoid, just a relay. Hard to rap on it as it is in the electronics box under the fuel tank.
The BMW solution is a kit of a new type relay and wiring harness to replace the old one and it's socket. The new one has a voltage sensing circuit in it to prevent it from engaging when the battery voltage is too low, which welds the contacts on the older relay.

No bike now, but maybe in the future.
