I have an 86 Moto 4 that has developed a starting issue.
I push the start button, and the solenoid clicks.
Bought a new solenoid, from ebay, and it's the same thing.
Here's where I'm confused, is using my volt meter, I have 12V to the terminal that the battery is connected to.
But, when I push the starter button, shouldn't I get 12v to the other terminal, so the starter motor turns?
I show no voltage to the other terminal when I push the starter button. The solenoid does click.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated, as I am at my wits end with this thing.

Welcome to the forum. I wonder if you have a bad ground at the battery causing a drop in voltage.

Thanks for the reply. It may actually have been a ground issue, but I did find that both the battery cables were rusty looking. I wire brushed everything, and it starts like a champ.
