Question about 1986 Yamaha FZ 750 AE (U.S.)

1 Answer

What to do

Got a new starter put on, and a whole new shifter column deal...The guy at the shop said the electric start works fine, but that my battery didn't have enough of a charge to start it. I manage to kickstart it, and drive it around for a bit, before it dies, and cannot be restarted. I don't know much, but it sounds like a stater issue to me...Just a few hours ago though, I fully charged the same, new battery, but it still struggles and will not start...What do I do now? I'm sick of taking this thing into the shop

If the battery no longer holds a charge, then it sounds like you need to get a new battery, or at least have your current battery checked by a Battery Shop. Stator could be a problem, in which case you should be able to get a new aftermarket one for your bike. Just as a thought though, did you check your fuel level when it died on you? it's happened to me before, where I'm looking all over for what's wrong, thinking the bike has a terminal problem, when it just turns out that it was out of gas.

We put a new battery in and the starter just clicks and sounds as if it has a short in it and it won't start. What to do!!!

Follow the positive battery cable to the solenoid terminal post. Now short from battery post to the starter post. If your starter works you have a bad solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works you need new starter brushes. If the armature of the starter checks bad, you need to buy a whole new assembly.

The bike was running fine in the evening. Rode to work parked the bike took the key out. The battery was dead in the morning. Put the 10 amp charger on and the motor started to turn over with the key off!...

your starter button is malfunctioning. maybe some oxidation in the switch. when starter button is pressed in that can cause your other electrical stuff to not work.

Electric start dont work

You probably have a bad switch

First look to se if there are any fuses
also see if horn works

FIX for determining if starter works

to find out take jumper cables and put the red cable on the plus side of the battery and the black on the minus side of battery(ground)

Put the black lead(ground ) on the frame of the bike near starter and touch the red to the starter lead( you may have to peel back rubber boot over starter nut

when you touch the starter nut it will spark and should spin over

if it does then you need to remove the screw assembly that holds the starter button and remove and clean it out with electronic cleaner (you may have to replace it if so go to honda shop and order new one

Good luck

first things first: Before you look at anything else on the bike to try to solve the problem, check to make sure all the fuses are good. It could be something as simple as a blown fuse, in which case you got yourself a hell of a deal. If all the fuses are good, check to make sure all the ground wires have a good clean connection.

Electric starter

You should have a wire that leads from the positive terminal to the solenoid, from the solenoid to the starter, from the starter to the ground. Then a wire that connects to solenoid to the negative terminal. If any one of these is disconnected, the starter will not work. All are about 8-10 guage wire, and should come colored red or black as standard.
