  • Starter

    Hi all, first time owner of a Roadstar 1600 Year 2000 (Wildstar, European version) only just got it home, tried to start it, it just “clicks” thought it was the battery, replaced it, made sure it was charged.
    still the same. Seems as if the pistons are “stuck” it is extremely hard to turnover. Is it a solenoid issue? Tried searching for it, but very difficult in europe. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Do you have a manual? you can get a free online manual to read or print. The reason I ask is when someone here explains something it will be easy to understand if you read up on it.

      First thing is to check all battery cable connections to make sure they are clean and tight. Do you have an electrical meter? If cleaning the connections don't fix it you will need one to do some voltage test

        Thanks, turns out the starter relay is fried, tested the starter with a wrench (short circuited it) new relay, and better batteri has been ordered. Thanks for the warm welcome :-)

          Just be sure to use a OEM relay.
          The relay you find on eBay are junk.
          Bite the bullet and go a real Yamaha parts store.
