  • bike wont start

    Just as the title says, bike wont start. When you hit the starter button, the compression release solenoid clicks but no starter, nothing. I was at work and trying to get home so i cleaned/checked terminals and all was ok. I even tried to jump it off, battery is still hot. I pulled the tank and yanked the plugs and while in gear i pushed the bike and the pistons pushed and pulled air just fine. So i guess when i get it off the trailer i will try to run a hot wire to positive lug on starter just to see if it will hit. Is the starter relay like typical relays, infinity across 2 terminals and continuity after 12 volts are applied, thanks.

    Check the brushes in your starter, mine was intermittently not cranking and I found the brushes broken at the 90 degree bends. If you do require a starter relay I have never heard of anyone getting the cheap knock off to work reliably, I would stick with the Yamaha relay or wire in the automotive ford relay as per davej.

      Might have diagnosed it on your own. Just jump the two terminals on the relay. If nothing, pull the starter and have a look-see inside.

          Check relay first...I assumed you cleaned the contacts in the right side switch housing ? I recently had to sand/clean mine and I just cleaned and rebuilt starter.

            The starter relay was bad. I hot wired it and the switch did not close, so there ya go. I took posters advise and purchased a factory relay, though i was tempted to buy 6 of the china made ones for the price of just one oem. Just waiting to get off work early enough to put it on, thanks fer the help guys.
