    01 gp800r wont start all i hear is a click has 12 volts

    01 gp800r wont start all i hear is a click now and the pvs trying to open and close it has 12 volts thought it was the batt but it has 12v i did notice a small amount of smoke from inside under seat i think its the starter because it did try to turn over yesterday but than it just slowly stoped trying to turnover so i thought it was low on power but checked today and it has 12V and would not even try to turn over any suggestions i was thinking if i unhook the bat it may reset thanks john

    first confirm motor is not locked up-turn by hand

    then check to see if you are getting voltage to the starter while cranking

    check connection of the starter wire at the starter it may be dirty if you have voltage to it. Or jump the starter to rule that out.
