When the lights go dimm, it means 3 things

  • I know its tested but i highly bet the battery drops volts and amps as fast as you press “start” , because it’s asking to spin the starter, supply power to cdi and coils etc to spark 10,000 volts pulses to the plugs to fire up.
  • Solenoid could be gone yes
  • Starter Motor has gone weak   (thus causing extra battery drain) – Replace it or open it to inspect starter motor bushes but drain bike oil first before removing starter motor.

Also when lights go dimm,   does the dashboard go dimm too? do you hear a click ? buzzing like flies? or thud-thud ?
