Question about 2004 Yamaha V Star Classic

1 Answer

2004 Yamaha V-star 650, wont start.

I rode it quite hard for about a half hour trip but was still running fine when I pulled into the garage at home. I switched it off, went inside for about an hour, but when I went to start it again the engine would not fire. It cranks fine, but just wont fire, the spark plugs look fine. and I don't think it got particually hot enough to melt anything. just cant seem to get it to spark..??

    I have the same problem, ohm'd out both coils and they are in spec, as well as the plug caps and the pickup coil, ohm'd out the diode in the relay unit and it has very high resistance backwards from what the clymer manual says, ordered a new relay unit, hope that's all thats wrong!!!

Change the coil you may not think it got hot but sometimes a coil can overheat on the inside just enough to break the copper winding. when riding hard slow down for a couple of miles to give everything time to get back to normal temps before shutting it off

Hi, Jodi and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, 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. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.

I bought a 2004 yamaha v star custome 650 but the ignition coils were missing how do i put the new ones back in


From what I recall, they are accessed by removing the seat.

Take off the Pillion seat to reveal the nut for the driver's seat. Remove this and then you should have exposed the coils (amongst other things).

Xvs 650 drag star has been sitting in garage over winter, battery appears fine but starter just gives off a series of clicks and no attempt to turn over the engine. What has gone wrong?


test the battery if its bad charging it will not help.next clean all the power cables at both ends,especialy from start relay to battery. if the battery is sure enough good the start relay may need to be replaced.

I just bought a used '03 650 vstar. I started it up and took it for a test drive and pulled it into my garage. My room mate was out there for quite some time checking out the bike. No idea what he did, but...


Colud your room mate have accidentally put the bike in gear? There is a switch on the kickstand that will killl the engine if kickstand is down and bike is in gear.

V-Star Tune Up


the stuff it came with is just fine. your bike shop where you buy the oil from will give you what they deem best for your bike, oil weights depend on where you are and ride. a K&N airfilter will help it breath better than the standard one but it wont do much for the performance. i have jardine pipes on mine i believe it was re-jetted when the previous owner installed them but i run a standard air cleaner and all is fine.
