    buying GP1300R that wont start

    This guy put up an 03 GP1300R but it won't start. It was a good price so we went to check it out. Hooked up to car battery via cables it makes this noise when you try to start it. I have attached video I would appreciate some advice on whats going on. The three fuses are fine.

    Sounds like the starter is not turning/engaging.
    Looks from the video that there is fair amount of corrosion, maybe bad/corroded connection on either end of starter positive cable from battery to starter?
    I would pull the plastic cover off of the PTO coupler and see if you can turn the crank by hand or use a piece of dowel stick and push down on the piston tops to get movement first.
    That clicking sound could be a relay/contactor also that is not switching properly? Some of the motor heads on here probably know exactly what that sound is.

    Good luck

    Jump starter. Test compression.

    Did it make any noise at all with inboard battery? Can you turn the impellor from underneath?If you can, you may not be getting enough current even with a jump or it could be solenoid. If it will not turn then it may be binding with the wear ring.

    defenetly try to turn it 1st... motor might be locked up...
    then jump starter, check compression... like stated above...

    then, CHECK YOUR TUNNEL!!!! this was a factory defect that must must must be addressed... trust me I made this mistake last season.
    also. install wave eaters... this will prevent bad engine damage... ride it till the wheels fall off!

    Guys, just wanted to update. I took out the plugs tried to turn it by hand and it would not budge. So I left it at that and someone else bought it.
