93 ASPY wont shut off

Post by rbinner93Aspencade »



Getting ready to shut the bike off. I turn the key and the switch to the off position. Then the bike continues to try to start itself. Only way I figured out how to shut it off was by moving the reverse lever up.

Most people are suggesting Solenoid A is stuck. I dont know what that is or where it is. One mechanic suggested 35851-mfs-751 part.
Another suggested replacing both solenoids.

Any advice who be appreciated. THanks!!

I agree with the diagnosis, the "A" starter relay is stuck. Moving the reverse lever up slightly interrupts the ground for the "B" relay coil, stopping the starter.

The "A" relay is right next to the battery positive terminal, follow the big heavy pos battery cable and it goes straight to the relay.

You could give the relay a smack with a screwdriver handle and that will probably un-stick it, but it should be replaced. If is stuck once, it most likely will do it again.
