Question about 2007 Victory Vegas 8-Ball

2 Answers

Noisy starter I bought a 8 with 20,000 miles at the end of July. I love the bike, the only problem I have is when starting the bike, it makes a lot of noise like a Bendix Spring. Everything works great and starts with no problem, I also hear it just a little bit when I shut it off so I don't know if it is normal. any help or comments welcome. Thanks

Pull the starter and see what it looks like and make a decision from what you find....just two bolts and one wire....be careful when undoing the wire to the stater, not to turn the whole bolt sticking out of the starter....let us know what you find...pictures are all ways helpful!

Check the cam timing and the ignition timing. If the engine is firing at the wrong time it will make turning over difficult.

I have a 2007 softail deluxe. I started the bike up yesterday, drove 5 miles then stopped and turned the engine off. The bike would not start, and all I heard was the starter relay switching. I just...


Dog gone, sure is a lot of this lately. Seems every other question is this same problem. LOL

Ok, look at the end of your starter from the right side of the bike. You should see a five sided plate held on with three screws unless it has some kind of chrome cover on it. Just above this cover, there is a single wire connected to the starter. Unplug this wire and connect it to a test light or volt meter. Turn on the switch and press the start button. If the light lights up or your meter shows battery voltage, the problem is in your starter. If the light does not light up or the meter shows no voltage, replace the starter relay.

If the light does show voltage, remove the three screws that hold the five sided end plate onto the solenoid. There's a plunger and spring behind the plate. Take these parts out. Look into the solenoid and examine the large copper contacts in the solenoid. If they're burned badly, you can replace them. A kit is available for the starter solenoid that includes new contacts and a new plunger.

Good Luck

2003 Yumbo Dakar Motorcycle -only 527 miles - will not start!!!


  • Nice looking bike. Yumbo Dakar is not a bike I have ever worked on but I will try to help.Remove the air filter and look into the carb as you twist the throttle. Does the slide open and close as it should? Open the slide and spray starter fluid into the carb bore as the electric starter is used. Not starting? NEXT >
  • Drain the carb just to see that it is filling with gas.
  • Remove the flywheel cover and put a timing light on the bike. Use the starter button and see if the timing marks are on. The CDI could be bad or the cam chain could have jumped.
  • Remove the cylinder head cover. Turn the flywheel to TDC compression. Look at the OHC gear. There should be two marks positioned parallel with the head surface, (or an '0' at the top of the gear and in line with the centerline of the crankshaft). Are the valves in time?

94 yamaha xj 600 wont rev over 6000 rpm


You bike is running rich on the main jet. Go down on the main jet size. Alternate to that, move the jet needle clip up one notch.

Go to the site below and you can download a free PDF service manual and parts manual for your bike. The service manual is 45th from the bottom of the Yamaha listings and the parts manual is 19th from the top. Now you can tune the carb and adjust the timing chain slack and a whole lot more. It saves my keystroke finger a lot of work also.

Please rate this solution. Thanks glouellette!
