Hey guys, I just bought a 250 as a project, so I joined the forum. Guy sold it to me because it would start, and it had been sitting for months. First thing I did was change the battery, and I had everything needed to start except fuel, so I converted to manual fuel petcock (old one was completely clogged and unrepairable), and I cleaned the carb. So that was about 3 days ago, and when I had done everything, I went to start and just heard one click, so I thought it was the starter solenoid, so I changed it. After that, still the same one click and it turned to multiple so I changed the battery even though it is new. I put in the new battery, started right up, with the exception of adjusting the idle, air filter not in/dirty, etc., but the point is the bike cranked perfectly. So 20 minutes pass by since I am just tweaking these minor things, so everything is ready, and now I am back to one click. I have checked the grounds, tested battery, cleaned connectors, hooked starter to battery directly (but doesn't crank, I am not sure if I am using right polarity though), so at this point I am completely lost, I would like to know from where the power needs to come in order for solenoid to operate, and just any suggestions you guys can help me out with, I would really appreciate it, thanks so much.
