My brother and myself were out riding last night and his phazer ran and started perfect. This morning he tried to start it and all you get is a clicking sound on the battery side. The battery doesn't seem to be down, you can hear the fuel pump and fan, they sound normal. Anybody have a similar problem? Does anybody know what the problem could be? Thanks

hahaha dude its like whena car clicks...just bang onn the starter or solenoid...it just could be a bad connection from the battery to starter....

OR HERES AND IDEA....just use the pull start!

IF YOU CANT PULL IT YOU CANT RIDE IT!...even my mom can pull over her '08 switchback 600

Stop and think, either it's the battery that is too weak, which will likely still run the fuel pump, but doesn't have enough cranking amps to turn it over. Or the solenoid isn't engaging, tapping on it should help.

Make sure the battery is fully charged. Like one of the other guys said it probably has enough power to run the fuel pump but not quite enough to turn the engine over. You'll also want to be careful with that sled that you warm up the sled good before you shut it off, if not it can foul the plugs. This I learned from experience.

Just to clearify, when you turn the key to start, it clicks once. It does not make several clicks or continue to click until you let go of the key. And no the sled has no pull start. My god man, don't you think we would have tried that!!

its because you bought a yamaha hahahha jk, but tis wont fix the problem but it will atleast start it. sometimes the connection from your battery terminals are bad. have you tried charging it and also taking some snad paper to the terminals so they are clean? this happens a lot in machines such as jet skis and snowmobiles when they get moisture in there, corrosion happens

I have the same problem, it cannot be a bad battery because it would do it every time you turn your sled off and try to turn it back on. This Only happens on cold days when the sled has been sitting for a while. I usually just let the key stay on for 30 seconds and try turning it over 10 times or so then it starts right up. If anyone who really knows what's wrong it would be nice to hear from you, rather than the donkey that says to use the pull start, hey thanks bud never thought of doing that one before you said it!

It is the starter relay/solenoid. You can try tapping on it, I ended up having to buy a new one from the dealer last fall when I was working on a Phazer. If I remember correctly, this was a common problem for 2007's and I think it might've been recalled?
