  • Electrical dropout

    Hey everybody. New to the forum so hope you guys can shed some light for me. I have a 2001 Yamaha roadstar ca 1600. Its fuel injected. It starts up with no problem until about 2 weeks ago when I hit the starter button it turned over but didnt start for a few times then I heard a noise like steam releasing then it fired up.it ran a bit rough for a minute but was good after that. I rode it about a 1/4 mile and all of the electricity just dropped out like the key was turned off. I walked it home and immediately checked the battery witha multi-meter after remov9ng the bike terminals and it read 12.9 volts. Didn't have any electrical for a coue of days but out of nowhere it started right up and ran great so I thought nothing and rode it to work. Same problem after about a half mile this time. Any ideas

    sounds like you may have a loose battery cable.

        Would a bad CDI box do this?

          I have a good cdi for a 1600 you can have for shipping if that seems to be thei issue. I would check your battery connections for tightness first. Also would upgrade to 4 gauge wire (Dave J makes and sells them cheap and they work great).
