Question about 2008 Yamaha XT 660 Z Tenere
When starting sled with electric start, the starter works the first time, however, subsequent attempts fail; i.e. no click, no starter engagement. Sled will start manually and run. After riding or letting it sit for awhile (overnight)sometimes the electric start works again and sometimes it does not.
Check for power to starter w/ testlight when you press start button.if none check for power at starter side of starter solenoid when pressing start button.if none take large screwdriver and wedge between both solenoid posts creating contact w/ key swich on. motor should crank.if it does -starter is good. chek small wire coming out of solenoid for power w/ test light when pressing start,if none check start button contacts or power coming from key switch or wiring from start button to solenoid. if power is at small wire when pressing button but no crank-solenoid is bad.

Sounds like the starter is sticking!
