  • Newbie on 2007 Yamaha Road Star - Click Sound when trying to start the bike

    Hello everyone, thank you for letting me join this forum! I have a question for you all: I just got a 2007 Yamaha Road Star and having problems starting the bike. When trying to start, I just hear a click sound and no start. I fully charged the battery, no luck, replaced the battery with a brand new one, no luck. I have checked all fuses, cables, anything that may be out of place, nothing. Any ideas of what would be the next thing to check?

    I appreciate in advance all the help you can provide me,

    Can you tell where the "click" is coming from? There is a relay under the left side cover that can fail. Most here say only use OEM as the cheap ebay stuff won't last. We've had a few members mention the plate that holds the brushes in the starter can crack. So there are a few places one may need to address. Nothing too difficult if you're familiar with basic tools.

      The click sound could be Was it running before? Check to make sure you're in neutral ( sometimes, even with the clutch pulled in, the starter won't engage. Next, check the starter relay...dirty contacts may cause issues (also, make sure it is an OEM part-not some cheap Chinese knockoff). After that, the starter needs to be checked- see the forum tech section for guidance on that and further infofrom Richardson, Texas. Give us some info on your location, in the profile section-a member may be close to you and be willing to assist you.

          Turn the key to start position and cross the 2 relay terminals with a screwdriver, if it starts you have a bad relay.

            Just be certain you're in neutral when you try this.

              Thank you all for your welcome to the clinic. You were right Lug Nut and roadiemort it is the Relay. I did what you recommended and it cranked. Any recommendations on where to order an OEM relay?

              Thanks again guys, you are awesome!!

                As others have said, our site sponsor would be a good place to source this part.

              Ebay stuff is pure junk!
              Rock River Power Sports sponsors this site and is a yamaha dealer.
              There are others, partzilla ...

              From The Oregon Coast......Relay would’ve been my 1st idea also.....mine did the same thing....buy OEM do not buy cheap knock offs.....ask me how I know..........if you can order from Rock River that’s where I’d start since they do so much for our site to stay up and running.....part I’ll is a good place also however you sometimes wait a while to get the order.....I’m doing that currently.....waiting.....Lots of people on here willing to help with anything you have issues with...I’ve been walked through things I wasn’t sure I could do but everyone helped out and patient.....you found a good place.....
