Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
6. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

I just picked up a 2003, 650 v star classic thats been sitting about 5 years. the ign. switch is gone and before I put alot into it I'd like to see if it will at least turn over. when I twist the red and...


There will be no power to the start button I expect. The ignition switch supplies more than just the pump.
Run a wire to the solenoid but you will need ignition voltage as well.

2001 Yamaha V star 650 will start, run for a second then dies. It seems to be getting fuel and the spark is strong. I have tried Sea foam and Berryman's Chem tool. What do I look at next?


I ran into a problem like that before and it could be the computer, they do that when it works intermittently. The part is priced up there so go over every thing else it could be first

I have a 07 Honda vt100 shadow spirit... Ran fine yesterday I parked it for about 3 hours.. When I went to start the bike later I pushed starter switch and NOTHING not even a sound.. Lights blinkers horn...


you may want to check the safty switch on the kick stand. if it is falty then it would not let the bike start. it would let everything else work though. make sure it is in neutral

1983 yamaha xj 650 no spark already changed the cdi coil plugs wires and mag pick up what next?


  • Do you see spark? If not, check the side stand kill switch. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. If broken or out of adjustment, it would kill the spark. Check for a broken wire at the side stand switch and coupler. Try moving the side stand kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it.
  • Is the handlebar kill switch on? Is it shorted out?
  • Are you getting power to the coils?
  • Check the fuses. How good is the battery? Try a jump start from your car battery.
  • Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. Check the wiring harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center or side casing. If still no spark, get CDI system and coils checked at the dealers shop.

Turns over no spark to plug


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try starting the bike with the clutch lever pulled in and / or the side stand folded up. Further on, check the 10Amp ignition fuse and the for the presence of IGN + 12  after the ignition switch and the Engine Run / Kill switch.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
