My 125cc Chinese scooter doesn't start with the electric start button. However, when I short the two starter solenoid poles together, the scooter starts fine. I replaced the solenoid itself, but the problem persists. So I assume there is something wrong with either the electric start switch or brake sensors.
I do not have the time to diagnose and work on it at the moment. So I plan to connect a simple button to the solenoid, which will short the two poles when pressed. Is this safe? I will probably use the solenoid bypass button to start the bike for at least 6 months. Will doing this frequently damage anything in the scooter?
Secondly, I would appreciate if someone could give me ideas on how I could connect the button efficiently, and also the type of button to be used.
Any advice would be highly appreciate.
Thanks a bunch
