Question about 1985 Yamaha FJ 1100
Riding my fj1100 one day, had been starting fine until i came back home for about 30 min. got off of the bike, then to leave again turn the key on hit the starter button and nothing. i have new battery, tail light comes on, nutral indicator, comes on, horn works, and turn signals are barely working, not worried about them as much, just want it to start. also the head light,is it supposed to come on first when you turn key on or after the bike starts. please help if can, bike runs good, i just bought it. want to ride when time comes.. thanks.
Evansville! Nice part of the World.
Bud's Harley Shop still there?
O.k. daft thing is the off run switch on the handlebars turned to off?
Failing this will the bike start and run off bumping (Push start).
If it does take a look at the battery (Maybe Dead cell/s) or Starter solenoid wire/fuse.
Solenoid is located near the battery it is the cylindrical item with the main pos+ wire from battery going to it.
Good Luck! could do with a new Bud's Harley 'T' shirt as mines worn out.
Oh! please remember to politely rate my effort!
