What do you do if your motorbike does not start?

It depends on what is wrong - if the starter-motor does not operate it is probably a flat battery (charge it), starter relay (replace it) or starter motor (replace it) - always check for corrosion / bad earths. If the starter-motor is operating but the engine isn't firing it could be any number of things - but for a motor to run it must have: compression, fuel & ignition. The easy answer if your bike does not start is to get in touch with a recovery organisation or motorcycle dealer (such as ourselves: )

When 1997 Saturn sl starter clicks?

The single click, that you hear when the starter switch is operated, is the solenoid making the high tension connection to the starter motor. If the starter motor doesn't turn over, you will need to check both the battery feed to the solenoid and the feed from the solenoid to the starter motor (this is typically a short length of braided cable). I have known this cable to corrode through. If it has, the easiest remedy, is to replace the entire starter motor.
