JUST REPAIRED BROKEN WIRE LEADING TO MY KICKSTAND BIKE WILL START IN NUTRAL BUT SHUT OFF WHEN PUT IN GEAR ALSO IM HAVING PROBLEM WITH BATTERY NOT RECHARGING ON THE BIKE


Your bike apparently has a safety mechanism where the engine shuts off while in gear, if the side stand is extended. The wire you fixed may not have been fixed properly. There is a switch at the end of that wire which senses the kick stand position. See if that switch is working properly. You can bypass the switch by shorting the wire, but remember it's a safety mechanism and it's better to keep it fixed.

Is there a heat sensor on my yamaha raider that shuts off the bike when overheated


My 2013 model has an engine auto stop system. If the bike idles for 20 minutes, it'll shut down. I'll get an error code of 70. Just restart and the code will clear. Your bike may be the same.

1998 1200 Custom - We bought this bike in 2000 and it had hardly ever been ridden. We rode it for a couple of years, then parked it in the garage when we bought a bigger bike. A year ago we took it out...


I had exactly the same problem. It turned out to be the ignition module. The first time that mine failed it was exactly as you described.
What happens when the ignition module goes is the bike will run fine then when the motor gets hot it will shut down. Then it won't start again until the motor has completely cooled down. Then it will start, run rough, get hot and shut down again.
You will find the ignition module behind the round cover where the points are on older bikes.
There is an LED light on it that will tell you if it is working properly or not. But replacing one probably isn't a project that you want to take on yourself.
Unless you are completely confident with working on vital electrical components of your bike then I would suggest taking it to an experienced mechanic whom you trust.

Bike engine light came on shut bike down wont start battery level is 10.6. Everytime I try to start the bike I get a code 0005 raw or so I think that's a code anyway. Any ideas what's wrong oh I checked...


Battery needs to be over 12v for the bike to start, with the bike running it will be about 14v
if you charge the battery and it wont hold 12v----new battery
If the bike starts and doesnt show 14v aprox---- new regulator

Bike will not start or stay running on a full charge battery/bought brand new battery, still same promblem,jump bike off,will crank ,ride bike for 30 min. park bike, leave bike running,lights start's to...


sounds like the problem is your battery is not charging when you are riding. The most common cause is a faulty regulator / rectifier. Contact a motorcycle wreckers for these parts, or your yamaha dealer.
Easy way to test is, when your bike is running, and the lights start to dim, before the bike shuts down, using a volt meter, test the voltage at the battery terminals, should be about 14V. If faulty rectifier,no charge going in to your battery, then the reading will be low, about only a few volts. If you dont have a volt meter, then any mechanic shop can do this test for you. best to have this done before buying any parts.

Kick stand safety shut down, once bike warms up it shuts off if kick stand is down


The bike is supposed to shut down if the kick stand is down. It is a safety feature designed to prevent starting out with the stand down, which can be very inconvenient on your first left turn. If you are saying the bike runs with the stand down when cold, then the switch must be in need of adjustment. Please rate my answer.

04 ROADKING OVER REVVED AND SHUT DOWN, WON'T START, I WAS TOLD IT'S GETTING SPARK, THIS IS A FRIENDS BIKE


I guess before I can really help you here I need to know if this is a stock bike or not. If it is a stock bike the rev limiter shut the bike down the spark to protect the engine. I find it hard to believe the bike wont start. The bike usaully runs fine again once the engine fall back into the limits of RPMS. Anyhow you might want to disconnect the batterry leads strarting with the negative first and then the psoitive and let it be disconnected for about 15 minutes. This will reset the computer unit in the bike and hopefully start communicationg with the rev limiter again. If the bike still does not start you have more problems then this.

1986 Yamaha Radian stops running after 20 minutes


Sounds to me like it could be a few things... pretty interesting that it runs and shuts down...sits for a little while then fires back up. Could be something as simple as a bad ground.. maybe it needs cleaned.. if the ground is making very little contact.. the bike would run bad, and because its direct current it has to flow. The metal in the motor frame etc will hold so much DC current.. but *** soon as it load up the bike would stop sparking. Let it sit for a while, DC trickles into the battery through the slight contact, bike fires back up. OR could be bad venting of your fuel tank, or a partial clog at the pet ****.. the first is pretty easy to check, open your fuel cap and start the bike..if it does the same thing then its not a vent problem. One thing that does happen on the Radian, is the reserve fuel screen inside the tank comes loose, and then everything inside the that has built up over the years either partially clogs the pet ****, or the hose, or both. Take the tank off, pull the pet **** off..if it still has two intact tubes with good screens..you probably don't have any junk in your line..but I would pull the line off and blow through it any way... it could be some type of blockage, when the bike sets the fuel seep through, but when it runs it eventually creates a vaccuum that stops the fuel flow. Those are my two first thoughts... good luck!!

Electrical problem


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try recharging the battery again. Remove the connector to the voltage regulator. Start/run the bike. If it lasts more than "3-5 minutes" then you have just confirmed a defective regulator. The voltage regulator would look something like below image.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
