    Starter Relay Position

    Could anyone tell me where is the started relay located for Benelli TNT 1130 century racer? Is there any guide to replace it?

    It may be in the same position as mine on my tre k , if it is it'll be just next to the alternator on the right looking at the bike side on .
    I think from memory it's a similar part as a Yamaha TDM 850.

    All the info you may need is on Errol's web site . A top source of information from the man himself 🙂 .

    Yes, it's next to the alternator.

    When mine went I bought an aftermarket relay to fit a Yamaha WR450F and it was nearly identical to the original. Cost was only $27 AU so it was cheap as.

    The only difference between the original and the aftermarket solenoid was that the starter and battery connections were reversed. This is worth checking if you replace the starter solenoid at some point because it won't go if they are the wrong way round.

    The other gripe I've had with this solenoid is that the fuse holder only contacts the fuse on one side of each blade. Over time this has lead to a melted fuse from arcing.

    This is the layout of the original factory solenoid
    (the battery, starter and main fuse location can be reversed on some aftermarket solenoids).

    Thank you so much for your help. The last time I started my bike, It got started for 2 times. After that I can only hear the click sound when I push to start button. I suspect it may be the solenoid faulty. I plan to replace it and see what happen.

    Thank you so much. I found that Alibaba.com is selling the part indeed. I'm not sure is it working. I'll give it a try.

    Replaced the one on my tre with a tdm850 part and all good since.
    Symptoms were that it would sporadically need numerous presses of the starter before getting a reaction. Eventually it failed completely and no end of fingering the button made any difference. Bit like being married for 30 years....

    Maybe a little bit of wd40 can help here, too?
