Is the solenoid activating? Do you hear the click when you press the starter button?

Yes I do hear the solenoid activating when I push the start button. Which makes me think I need to rebuild the starter? I just can't think of anything else to do.

Grab a wrench and bridge the studs between the solenoid. There may be sparks, but hold it tightly (you won't get shocked). This will bypass the solenoid and should activate the starter motor, if the starter motor is working.

If still not joy, then it's either the starter motor or a dead or dying battery.

Just did that.... no sparks or anything happened.. bad solenoid?
The battery was connected to a battery charger at the time as well. I think the battery is bad all the same. Would it still not spark like that though?

Solenoid has internal plastic stop so when contacts burn out you still get 'click' but no contiuity on high amp side. Normal cause of burned out contacts is low battery. Enough power to activate solenoid but not enough to turn motor so 'drops-out' when voltage drops then instantly has enough voltage  to re-connect (the Bzzzzzt  or takatakatak you get with a 'flat' battery)

If the battery is dead (or nearly dead) then you won't get sparks and the starter motor won't turn over. I'd try again with some jumper cables running to your car. Keep the car engine turned off when doing this.

For a master cylinder, is it possible to go up in piston size and it still work correctly? Or just stay with stock sizing

you can go up or down 1~1.5mm or 1/16" without too many issues. going bigger generally makes lever feel 'wooden' as you have less lever movement. M/C bore and caliper bore diameter are related. It isn't just how much fluid is moved but the surface area it's acting on.

Anything over 100CCA will do.

Hey Sonreir,
Just getting around to hooking the bike up to car battery. Do you mean hook the positive and negative leads to the jumper cables or the battery itself (while still installed in bike)?
