clean the starter button and all the other handlebar switches. put some seafoam in the crankcase and run the engine for a few minutes then do an oil change, the seafoam should get the gum off the starter clutches. most older Honda's solenoid will rattle when you shake them so take yours off an see if it doesn't the solenoid is sticking, sometimes they can be freed by smacking them on the bottom with a hammer

I took the bike to the mechanics shop. I haven't heard back from him yet but I will report the results when I do. Thanks again for everyone's time & sharing your knowledge. I will pass it on to him.

Mechanic (Daniel) texted me this morning & said it locked up again. He has tested the battery good several times with a fancy digital battery tester but now the battery failed the test so he is going to replace the battery. More to come when it is fixed. (for good)

Starter Lock Up -

Hey Jim - It's not that a failing battery can't cause a bike to be difficult to start - but surely he's not saying the battery is causing the starter to lock up ?

Good Luck and Keep Us Posted - Michael

Hello: I agree with JK, A Dead Battery and something locked up are two different issues. Could be just miss speaking, I hope it is just the battery for you. Good Luck.

Thank You: Mocchi
