Default 2007 250 won't start. bad r/r?

So my 2007 250 won't start, It starts to crank but won't turn over and then you can hear a loud clicking noise. Searched around a bit and might be a bad r/r? Here's of video of it:



what do you guys think

Sounds like the battery might be weak to me. Check your voltage.

Yea if the R/R is bad, the stator isn't charging the battery when I ride, thus draining my battery until this point. Just curious if anyone has some insight.

dead, or bad battery.

jump it, or push start it, get it running, and then check the voltage at the battery.
but, my guess everything is fine, and the battery is bad.

Agree with nevada, as it is trying to start .... How old is that battery?
And if the battery is dead, it could almost seem like there is a R/R issue as the battery won't take the charge. Would start with battery testing first for sure.

Batteries can only last so long.

R/Rs can go out but batteries tend to go out faster.

Assuming this is the original battery, you have to remember this battery was made in a factory in late 2006 / early 2007.

Let us know what happens after following Nevadas advice

Start by jumpstarting the bike with good battery - a car battery is fine. If it starts you know that a low battery is the cause of your initial problem. If it doesn't, you need to look at the solenoid and starter.

Assuming that it starts, measure the voltage across the battery terminals with a multoimeter. It should be between about 13.6 and 15V with the motor running at about 6K rpm.

If it's higher you have a u/s regulator that's frying your battery.

If it's lower you need to unplug the r/r from the stator and measure the ac voltage at the stator connector. Again at about 6K rpm.There are three windings which form three pairs measuring each to each. Not sure what the voltage should be, but i'st about 40 - 70 VAC. That's important. Set your meter to AC for this measurement. If one or more windings has a low reading you have a stator problem. If they're all OK but you have low voltage across the battery (after reconnecting the stator and still at 6K rpm) you have a faulty r/r.

If these checks are OK but the bike is still reluctant to start on its own battery, even after a ride, you probably need a new battery.
